Pretty easy, overall.
One of the main reasons as to why I would recommend this course is due to the professor. Patrick Hull is a great professor; he makes a mundane subject entertaining and wants you to succeed. He loves questions and is clear when answering them, and is very supportive during presentations. Whether or not you have any experience public speaking, this is a great class to take.
The highlights of this course was the constructive criticism we received after presentations. There is always something we could improve upon, and we were given clear direction on how to accomplish it. Everyone has had some experience presenting in front of an audience, so the skills I took away from the course included the details in presenting. Personally, I focused on improving my eye contact while speaking to an audience.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed you have to be willing to try and put yourself a bit out of your comfort zone. You are allowed to use a few flashcards during a presentation, but are encouraged to challenge yourself and just write down just a few bullet points instead of writing out every single word you will say. Also be prepared to work in a random group for the entirety of the course. You may have to adapt to different personalities and skill sets. All in all, put forth a little effort and you will succeed!
