Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was extremely interesting and fun to go to. For any students interested in learning more about their own DNA as well as how they acquired their genetic traits. This class really helps you learn mechanisms of diseases and how the genome can be altered. The lab portion is hands on and really helps to back up the information being learned in lecture.
Genetics is something that affects everyones life. You learn so much information regarding topics such as gene transfer, epigenetics, gene inheritance and genetic variation. You do a semester long project in which you breed fruit flies and it's really cool to see some of the mechanisms at work.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of the material. Master the concepts early and then build on the basics. If you ask questions early, you will be better off later in the semester. Put in the time and effort and you'll succeed.
