Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I had zero construction experience going into college, and this class teaches not only terms and names of things, but also how they work and what they do. I was fortunate enough to receive a paid internship the summer after taking this course, and I already knew a good bit of fundamental information before I even walked onto the job site.
Probably my favorite thing about this course was the fact that we didn't stay in the classroom all the time. Our instructor took us on "field trips" to see steel, concrete, brick, etc. used in the real world. It was a great way to see something practically used that we had learned about in the classroom.

Advice for students:
Just go into the course ready to learn a lot of things that you didn't know before. It's not like a math or science course that you have any kind of background in; it's all brand new (or at least it was for me).
