Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because I believe it has important information that every individual should be aware of. Dr. Kelso is a fantastic teacher with an obvious knowledge and love for the subject area. He is very passionate about how important it is we enforce what we learn in this class to better the world and it's resources. There is a wide expanse of topics discussed so everyone will be interested.
Because the topics discussed are so broad the class is more of an introduction course to RNR. It is the first course for RNR majors and classes get more specific later on. This course specifically is about how to use renewable natural resources and where to find them. From how to use solar power, wind power and hydropower to land use (forestry, coal and oil) and animal habitats (invasive species).

Advice for students:
Go to class! Kelso takes attendance on ransom days and you will get a participation grade at the end of the semester. More importantly in his lectures there are pictures with captions on the side that he discuses more in class that isn't on the slides. If you do not go to class you will miss important details that WILL be on his tests. There are not a lot of other opportunities for points, no homework, so study for the tests. Take notes in class from lectures, read what he posts on Moodle, and study the PowerPoints that he posts the week before each test.
