Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is an excellent course to take for undergrads to get a good overview of early America, the founding of the country, and the course we took up to the Civil War.
One of the highlights of the course was learning about the early interactions between the European s and the Native Americans, and how we learned from each other. Also, the conflict between the North and the South during the antebellum years, (agriculture vs industrialism.)

Advice for students:
First off, do the reading and be prepared for discussing them in class. Nothing makes a better impression on a professor than a student who can talk, and expand on what he is lecturing on. Also, take good, comprehensive notes. And learn how to write an historical essay correctly. And lastly, visiting your professor at his office to ask questions can make the difference between an A- and an A.
