Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor who teaches this course, Gerald Geier, is fantastic at his job. He's only the best math professor I've had, but probably the best professor I've had at CSU Long Beach so far. He truly cares for his students and takes every opportunity to make sure we succeed at the highest point. Professor Geier can be contacted through his office hours, email, before and after class where he takes the questions or concerns of any student and bring them up to the next class to see if any other students are dealing with the same problem, making everything relevant to the class.
His lectures were definitely something to pleasantly remember because they were often straight to the point and able to grasp the attention of his students. This is due to the way he structures his notes and provides a hands-on approach in order to make sure that we are actively thinking and not just monotonously writing notes like a zombie. It was an effective approach at making sure the students can retain the information while also allowing for an easier way at getting back to the lectures whenever we need to review any material.

Advice for students:
Remember, it's not difficult to get an A in the class since Professor Geier is a fair grader and does his best to make sure you get out with the highest grade possible, and at the same time, the class has a lenient environment so you don't always feel that math anxiety creep up on you. However, that is no excuse to just sit back and expect everything to just work. You have to be an active participant if you want to get the most out of his class and always show up even though attendance isn't mandatory. So if you may be falling, try to check yourself before blaming anybody else because in my opinion, failing his class almost seems impossible. Never be afraid to ask questions or ask him to repeat himself and make as many friends as you can if you want to form any study groups for his (considerably fair) tests.
