Pretty easy, overall.
Since I'm taking this course in the summer; the time I have in class is reduced. This class to me was mostly a refreshment of Microsoft Office. What I don't necessarily like about the class is that it's considered a lecture but is more of an online class and considered independent learning. Also, since everything's online, there are simulations which can be a pain when there's a glitch. Especially when you know you're doing things correctly and it won't let you input that answer.
I'm currently taking this class, so I can only speak about the halfway mark. I started off with Microsoft Word. I learned about nonprinting characters, paragraph marks, word wrap, insert data and pictures from another document without copy and paste, templates, alignment, styles, spacing and themes. Then we moved on to Excel. Excel seems a little more challenging considering the formulas, but once learned it's actually very easy. I learned to input data, merge cells, change themes, styles, and colors, how to cut and paste cells, and to use easy formulas to calculate answers. I know we will then learn about Microsoft access and PowerPoint I believe.

Advice for students:
If you have prior knowledge to computers or Microsoft Office this class will be easy. Also, if you don't mind learning on your own this class is for you. If computers and Microsoft Office isn't something you're familiar with it might be more challenging. Notes always help especially when it comes to formulas in Excel.
