Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's a good class, Dr Durbak is very enthusiastic and really works to help you understand and be able to apply the concepts discussed to problems. Homework Problems are important as they help to hone down the information you will need to know for the exam. Go to class, go to discussion. Class has clicker questions which count as extra credit at the end of the class based on how many you answer correctly. There are also in class assignments (easy) that you don't want to miss as they also carry a point value. Keep up with reading (about 20 pages/lecture) and the weekly homework and quizzes will be easy. More extra credit points are given for discussion attendance and participation. Exam questions can be challenging, though there are some terms to define and multiple choice questions, many problems will expect you to use what you have learned to answer a question/solve a problem.
Some review of cell structure, but huge focus is on cell chemistry. I suggest waiting to take this class until finishing at least inorganic chem series and possibly take it after or in conjunction with orgo 1.
