Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was extremely informational regarding rock formation processes, formation of geological features, and sustainability. It was a very scientific course that taught me a lot about how the Earth formed, how it continuously changes, as well as many other things. If a student is curious about nature and it's processes, this would be a good course to broaden their knowledge.
My favorite part of this course was the section on sustainability. This section had a lot to do with talking about the environment, and how humans affect it. It was eye-opening to see the current state that the Earth is in, and the fact that we still haven't collectively decided that it's an extremely important issue. It was brought up in this class that the state of Earth is possibly even the most important issue in the world, to date.

Advice for students:
Never miss the lab classes. Althought the lecture portion of the class is also very valuable, most of the material covered is also discussed in the lab. The difference is that in the lab you have more oportunity to ask questions, as well as finish your homework during class. Another positive aspect is that you get lots of hands-on learning experiences that were very helpful in solidifying my knowledge of the subject.
