Go to Office Hours
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend this class because Professor Olah is a professor that is willing to help you on your essays if you are willing to put the time in. He lets you do as many rewrites as you want which is great if you want to up your grade. He is funny and he also relates everything from movies to science to the books we read in class.
I have gained better writing skills through this course. It was a critical thinking class, but it did not even feel like a critical thinking class. You learn how to move away from the five paragraph essays you wrote in high school and you learn how to write efficient and flowing essays. He has a certain way of writing essays such as putting in counter-arguements which allow you to write essays that are 6 pages long. This is honestly the best course I have ever taken so far in college.

Advice for students:
I would say go to office hours if you want to improve your writing. Get on his good side because it can help big time. Do as many rewrites as you can since it helps boost your grade up. Turn in the essays since they count for a big percentage of your grade. He is willing to help and he makes class time fun even though he goes off topic sometimes.
