Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
I took this class because it was equivalent to a required class I would need to take anyways when I transferred to a four-year university. However, the material was pretty challenging (at least for a while) and it seemed that as soon as you thought you understood a concept, there was another aspect of it that would prove you wrong if you tried to prove a point using it, and it ended up confusing me more.
I did enjoy learning different concepts of philosophy, because I had never immersed myself in the subject before. They were all very interesting, and I got to learn what type of philosophical ideology I most associate with.

Advice for students:
If you do have to take this course, definitely get the book and do the assigned readings, because nothing is reviewed and you are expected to know the material ahead of time. Also, polish up your writing skills, because even if you don't understand philosophy, it seems you will get a good grade if you can write a coherent sentence that vaguely relates to philosophy rather than a poorly written one that shows you actually know the material (both the Mid-Term and Final are entirely short answers and essays, and there are bi-weekly discussion boards online that are a huge part of your grade).
