Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Regardless of whether or not you're interested in the logistics involving the philosophy of ethics, this course pushes students to better evaluate the rightness or wrongness of their actions (or actions in general), and gives them the critical thinking skills to do so. Skills necessary to carry outside of the classroom, and throughout life in general.
With the encouragement of the teacher, I learned to better my critical thinking skills. We discussed several ethics theories and ideas, while at the same time stressing their flaws. I learned of interesting new ideas of the world around me, which has significantly shaped how I see my reality. I fell in love with thinking and contemplating ideas, and became habituated with writing.

Advice for students:
Perhaps for other students, I suggest reading the textbook as this course is heavily centered on the specific ideas presented within the textbook. Some students find it more helpful to read before coming in to class and then listening to his lectures that summarize the contents of the book, while others find it more helpful to read after the lectures. Be willing to participate in the lectures, as the instructor is exceptionally considerate and thoughtful in giving responses and answering questions.
