    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to those who what to learn about composition and not just looking for an easy A. Although this class is simple, it allows you to challenge yourself in writing papers/essays.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers narrative essay, proposal letter, research paper, and a portfolio. Although it may differ from professors, each class exercises multiple forms of writing. This is a good thing because these are skills that you will need for classes you will take in the future that require you to write a paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off. If you have questions or do not understand what the professor is saying, simply ask for help. They are there to help you and ensure you have an easy and successful semester. Also refer back to the syllabus and paper requirements. The professors grade the papers based on these so use these as a guide line.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class has really improved my writing skills. Prior to this class, my writing skills were not very strong. However, each day in this class I learn something more and each paper of mine improves more.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned about proper peer editing, definition papers and descriptive papers. I had not written a paper like the papers I did in this class before, so I had no previous experience. My professor very thoroughly walked us through how to do these, and I found myself successful in writing these papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest piece of advice would be to go to class! Every day, we learn something new or go over something important to the paper we are working on at the time. When you skip class, you miss the benefits and can miss out on quite a bit. Also, turn in your work on time. The deadlines the professor gives are not unreasonable and points are deducted for late work, and it is not worth turning it in late.
