Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Overall, Forensic Science is a very interesting and informative course that I would highly recommend. It is very different from any other science course because it focuses on how the integration of science into law enforcement can be used to aid investigative procedures. If you take this course, be prepared to learn a number of things ranging from arson investigation to entomology. This course also has a lot of hands on experiments to help strengthen the understanding of the material. However, this class is not for those who have a weak stomach, because you will deal with graphic material. But if you are okay with this, then I would highly recommend this class.
The highlights of this course for me was the labs. In particular, the most memorable labs was one where we conducted an autopsy on a fetal pig and had to go through all the investigative procedures in order to determine the cause of death. But the most important thing i learned from the course was the sort of things that forensic experts are required to know. there are a lot of subdivisions within the course so specialists in certain fields are required. This course served as a great introduction into the world of forensic science and certainly peaked my interest in the field.

Advice for students:
Make sure to focus on the vocabulary and the processes involved in the investigative procedures. And keep up on the small work assigned.
