Pretty easy, overall.
this specific class is excellent because the lectures and readings are very interesting and easy to understand. The professor explains and makes everything so understandable but as a student yes you do have to read the book and notes. The good thing the theories are not boring at all and it wil leave you very surprise of what you will learn. The bad thing was that there was no study guide but you don't need one at all and their is also a 6 page essay due .
I gained a lot of information about how people were categorize as criminals. How these theories really went over board to figure out who were likely to offend. There were some theories that were great and you can really see that they were right on how you can no the possibility of offending. For example the main topics of this class was classical and positive school.

Advice for students:
write all the notes that the professor shows on the slide, don't miss class, try to attend every class. Go over your notes and your book to get a better understanding of the theories. Her exams are very straight forward, not difficult at all, or tricky.
