Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it fully prepares you for internships and jobs in fields such as athletic training, personal training, and pre-physical therapy! While it is a lot of information and can be difficult at times, everything is so applicable and you get hands on experience in the lab with putting someone through an exercise test.
I learned the ins and outs of putting someone through graded exercise tests in order to assess their fitness level, and then how to prescribe an exercise program that is right for them. I learned about the many risk factors for exercise, and I was able to properly educate my family members on how to stay healthy and in shape to prevent things such as cancer and dementia.

Advice for students:
Start studying the material early. It all connects and you will use everything you learn on the practical lab exam and the cumulative final exam. Most of it is common sense once you understand the concepts, but you can gain proficiency in the lab with actual execution of the material.
