Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course, I believe it was an interesting class and I don't regret it. That said, Mr. Garlinghouse is a very laidback teacher, you have to be someone who listens, not someone who's loud and obnoxious and talks over the teacher, because it's very possible he won't stop you. He makes you responsible for your own grade in the class, but he also makes it very easy to get an A. The sciences have never been my forte, but I can honestly say I learned so much from Mr. Garlinghouse. I only hope people will take all of that in to consideration when deciding their next year's classes.
I made a lot of friends in this course, it's one that's very hands-on, it requires you to work with other people through labs and just basic classwork. Learning with your classmates is really beneficial in the way that it shows you you're not alone. You have plenty of help in this class, and it seems they're all happy to provide help where and when help is needed.

Advice for students:
Go into this class ready to listen. When you study, focus on the main ideas, overall theories and content. Detail has very little place in Mr. Garlinghouse's room, and in his tests. He just wants to make sure you understand. Also, keep that in mind, Mr. Garlinghouse is there to help you. Ask for his help when you need it.
