Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would completely recommend this course with Mark Maggio because it works to the students' strengths within the course by requiring insight into their own areas of expertise and desire. His combination of discussion board questions and powerpoints which require group-work really tie together the aspects of the course very well. Mark Maggio has a deep-felt connection with his students, and after taking his course - there's no one I'd rather have taken the class with.
The highlights of the course were that it brought the course down to a more understanding level, while keeping the same drive that would be there if I were an Economics major. I feel that I was able to tie together my love of Philosophy and Political Science by projecting an idea of where I would want to use this course's ideals in my own day-to-day life.

Advice for students:
For students considering this course, I would advise them to first, buy the book. Using the book as well as copying down the problem on scratch paper was influential to my success in the course. It also was very necessary to talk to the professor and have him work alongside you to explain any areas you didn't understand. There was a wide variety of questions in this class, and if you missed one area - the rest were very difficult to accomplish afterwards. Finally - enjoy it. This course could be daunting and difficult, or enjoyable and fun. Take the second approach and the class will come to you.
