Pretty easy, overall.
These introduction to geology course provides a great, comprehensive look into the field of geology. It includes topics such as plate tectonics, minerals, the rock cycle, natural disasters, stream processes, and more. It is also accompanied by an easy, yet applicable lab.
As a student on the fence between Marine Biology and Geology majors, this course clarified my love for geology and how much it suits me. A comprehensive, yet introductory course like this made it an easy decision. I learned about the earth on a broader scope; I now can look around the natural landscape and infer why it looks that way.

Advice for students:
This is a survey course, so all it is is a lot of information. Take your notes, and before the exam, condense them down once, condense them down again, and again, until you have just 1-2 pages of notes to study. It helps you organize your thoughts, identify important concepts, and memorize.
