    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because it teaches a lot of valuable information on conducting research. Going into a class like this, it is hard not to think that researching a subject is easy. I mean, we have Google. Truly though, when you are trying to prove a point, you need information that is reliable. In order to obtain reliable information, you must be able to find reliable resources. That is valuable knowledge that you gain from this course.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlight of this course, was being able to confidently identify a reliable resource. When you are trying to prove something, you need to have a solid backing. Being able to look up an article or study that was done in order to prove your stance, can be an invaluable asset.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take anything you learn in this course for granted. It all has a purpose. Some of it might not be apparent at first, but you will come to realize otherwise. Always ask questions because the more you ask, the more you will learn.
