Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because the course provides detailed information regarding research in psychology. Research methods in psychology are extremely important because psychology theories and methods of practice are constantly changing. An individual may enter psychology believing in one theory and later incorporate multiple theories into their perspective. It is important to understand how research is conducted in order to create an informed option or position within the realm of psychology.
This course was a great refresher for other science research courses I had taken in high school. I enjoyed learning of the different types of errors statistics. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I believe the highlight of the course was the final for the course. Working throughout the course to complete a final composed of my own research idea and explanation of which method would be used to conduct the research and all of the other elements of the research process I was proposing! And of course, conducting the research was also a highlight.

Advice for students:
Study, study, study! Pay attention to not only which research method you prefer, but all of the methods introduced. When it comes time to complete the final, you may have changed your mind on what you would like to research and which method(s) you would prefer to use, based on how the process would benefit your research.
