You guys are talking about brain dominance.

It depends on how old I was.

In high school - NONE. They all gave me fits.

In college it's a toss up between math and physics. I'd say physics except that the reason it was easy was that I knew the math.

In college, the easiest course I had was a class in both Russian Literature and Women's Studies. It was the easiest A I ever got. The whole class seemed to be reading some Russian women authors complaining about men and how hard their lives were! I noticed the teacher loved the students who would chime in and gripe about men as well (but I wasn't one of them)!

I think any of the "complaint" studies courses would be pretty much the same.

Easiest class, not based on personal preference?

In K-12, health class was always insanely easy.

In High School, my easiest class was Art. I used to "cut" my other classes to go to art. I loved that class!

I wanted to study art in college, but someone changed my mind. I think I'll go back to study art at my leisure...

English is the easiest for me but I hated and still hate it because I haven't finished all my courses in college, yet. I just don't like reading as much - or reading old stuff that I'm not interested in. Plus I find all the grammar and spelling lessons incredibly boring, and just as easy.

I was initially going to say ceramics because you really had work hard to get an F (that is, never showed up for class, never made anything, kept trying to sneak "pipes" into the kiln, and so on) but in reality it was difficult to make anything good (lopsided "wavy" coffee mugs were the handle always fell off was the norm).

Then I was going to say PE, but I was the awkward kid in class who tripped over his own feet and was never good at any sport.

Then I thought about drawing, but then again my drawing class taught the theory behind composition more so than it did with actually drawing (which kind of ruined my appreciation of art, by the way, but did enhance my ability to critique art).

So, I would say that perhaps the easiest subject for me was English; in particular, both English Comp and English Lit.

Automotive technology. Took four years of it. Found it to be quite easy. Also enjoyed typing and excelled with little or no effort. Ditto on creative writing classes.

But when it comes to math, I freak out. I'm a math idiot. In every way measurable.
