Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was an amazing class! I am going into wildlife conservation, and this goes right along with it. Even if you are not going into environmental or wildlife conservation, it is a great class to take. You learn what is happening to the earth and why it needs to stop now, before it gets to the point where we cannot reverse the damage. He is very passionate about the subject, sometimes he would get so caught up with one subject he would forget to finish the powerpoint! haha, so we would have to finish it the next class.
You also learn about all the renewable energy sources as well as nuclear energy. We spent a good portion of the class discussing Utah Lake, because it is a local envt. issue. And I really liked how Dr. Cadet was an actual environmental scientist, the previous summer he was in Hati taking soil samples and doing research. This allowed him to give us an better insight into the practice of envt. management.

Advice for students:
The tests/quizzes were not super easy, but they are not super hard either. It is easy if you actually did the reading, participated/took notes in class. It is really hard if you didn't pay attention and are trying to find the answers in the text book during the quiz, they are timed. Quizzes were online, open note as well as the tests (except for the final - in class). There really wasn't to much homework other than a quiz every week. There is a class presentation about a hot button issue (i.e., climate change, deforrestation, etc.) it is a group presentation and is worth a lot of points, although it is not too hard, there is a chapter in the book on each that gives you a good frame. He is really flexible with late work and sometimes he will get rid of a quiz if the class did well on the last one and the whole class asks. :)
