Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is very interesting. Even though it is a tough course; however, it is do-able!!! I would recommend to come to class every lecture since it helps a lot. Do record his lecture since he talks fast and kind of jump around a lot; you will get lost. But if you record the lecture, you can re-listen to it and it really clarify his teaching. That way you will not need to read the book. Everything is straight in his lectures, make sure you understand his lectures. If you don't go to his office hours; however, I would recommend TA's office hours since his TAs are really nice and helpful.
Even though I am not a public health student but this course is very interesting. After taking this course, I really want to go more in depth into public health. By the end of the course you will learn a lot of things about vaccinations, types of experimental studies and how researchers select samples according to their type of research!

Advice for students:
If you do take this course, do the reading before hand. It would become easier to follow during the lectures. DO the homework questions after every chapter in the book. It's really helpful since the professor sometimes will put those question in the test. Use all resources such as discussion sections, professor's office hours and TA's office hours. They all there to help you get an A in the class.
