Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you are looking to work in a field of science, I really recommend this course. Dr. Hodge is a fantastic teacher. The class is not only interesting, but it sparks an interest for ecology in the students.
This course goes beyond the general knoweledge of animals, stemming all the way from the phylum Porifera (sponges) all the way to subphylum Vertebrata (animals with vertebrate.) Its a very in depth description of each phylum, subphylum, and even some classes and/or orders.

Advice for students:
The best study tips I can give is to take good notes. If you write down what she says (and review her slides later) you are more than likely to pass the class with an 'A.' However, that does not mean her tests are easy; be prepared for little things, that you only covered lightly, to appear on the test.
