Not too easy. Not too difficult.
COMM 1100 is a required course for Communication Studies majors, however, many students outside of the major take this course as an elective. If you want to take a course that will introduce you to topics within communication studies, then this is a good fit for you. If you want to take an easy-A elective, then this is not the class to pick. Many students in my class made C's, D's, or very low B's on the tests, so I recommend studying thoroughly.
In COMM 1100, I learned about nonverbal communication, encoding and decoding, interpersonal communication, relationships, language, the history of communication studies, and other concepts within the fields of communication and psychology.

Advice for students:
To succeed in COMM 1100, you will need to begin studying for each test at least three days beforehand. The studying method that worked best for me was to write a study guide based on all of the information in the book and the notes for each test. Each test in my class consisted of a multiple-choice section worth 70% of the points and a short-answer section worth 30%. The final was completely multiple choice.
