Pretty easy, overall.
Not challenging course in that you do not have to google things to understand materials you don't understand from class. Lectures and notes are very simple as the course is designed for first year students. This is one of the hidden bird courses. Definitely do check if your schedule fits. Assignments are not really university level essays but may require some researching, which is totally doable.
Ancient Egypt represents one of the first civilizations of human of worth noting, especially due to its very clearly rich culture. You will learn why and how their culture influenced other cultures around if you think about it a little bit; it definitely influenced the Greeks and Romans in some way for example.

Advice for students:
Go to lectures and pay attention. Try taking notes on your laptop, which helps you progress the information taught in lectures as well as recognize some figures that you must know that will be covered in your quiz. Assignments are definitely easy to follow, but you put some effort into coming up with your perspective of ancient Egyptian culture. Final exam is not hard, but you do want to look at the notes, understand the key stuffs that the professor highlights in classes (pay attention particularly in the beginning of the classes where she reviews materials taught in previous lecture where she sort of summarize/highlight) and look at the one final exam from previous year posted online to get a sense of how to go about studying. Go to tutorials as well and just participate even if your thoughts may not really be 'right' in your mind; participation marks counts.
