So I took a course for electrical engineering as an undergraduate, I'm going to a different school for my masters in electrical engineering, I see as part of the curriculum a course that looks very familiar to a course I took in my undergrad.

Because I can't use the same course for more than one degree at different levels, in theory I can take this course, which I'm sure I have already taken as an undergrad, and have it count towards my masters

Should I? it should be an "easy A" since I've taken a course that covers the same topics in my undergrad

One should hope that a master's level course would go more in-depth than the undergraduate level course. Is there any way to ask people, who have already taken it, what is involved. Or ask an advisor or the professor.

I guess there's nothing wrong with having a class or 2 where you don't have to work quite as hard to get a good grade.

take the syllabus and all of your notes/tests etc to your new advisor. they'll either sign off on it an exempt you or make you take it again.

I retook four undergrad physics courses during the first year of my PhD program at MIT: Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, and Statistical Mechanics. Easy As? Hardly. No one batted an eye.
