Pretty easy, overall.
I'm actually not interested in politics, but someone had recommended the class because Professor Markus is so passionate and entertaining. I was so happy they did! After taking the class, I finally felt like I wasn't completely clueless about politics. Because he's passionate, he has strong views that he does not try to hide but encourages everyone to educate themselves on every political viewpoint.
This course taught me how to finally weed out poor political articles and focus on reliable sources. I can now hold my own in political debates!

Advice for students:
If you are passionately right-winged, then do NOT take this class because Professor Markus's unhidden views will drive you insane. You actually do have to go to lecture because Professor Markus talks nonstop the entire time and gives key pointers on what to focus on. It will actually save you time to go to lecture and know what you need to know!
