Pretty easy, overall.
I did Coding in High school (Java) and this was an easy, nice transition into the C language, while the professor was very... interesting, I had no problems with this Course.
Intro to C, they walk you through using their type of editor (and how to not use that editor) and teach very basic coding principals. Nothing super crazy or involved, all coding is done as a team in lab, with a few homework assignments as well.

Advice for students:
If you haven't coded before go to Code Academy's website and play around a little bit, it will help you start off. Practice typing, as silly as it sounds, you don't want to be the one who has to retype "program" five times because you haven't written an essay in a while.
