Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Coggins is a great teacher and lectures admittedly dry course material in a very engaging way. He also always tries to make things relatable by giving real world examples for the biological processes he teaches. His course expectations were always clear. The example he gives on the first day of class about eating a ham sandwhich and a soda is pretty much exactly what you need to know for the final.
I learned everything you need to know for intro biochemistry (definitely necessary for the MCAT). My favorite lesson was the 'biochemistry of brewing beer', which was a really good way of explaining how different biological processes are utilized to make a certain end product. Also, this is frequently on the second midterm. I really enjoyed his enthusiastic lecture style and the fact that this was not a lab course.

Advice for students:
Know every step of the biological processes. This includes knowing the reactant, product, enzyme, and step number independently. For example, A test question could ask for the enzyme used in the fourth step of glycolysis
