Not too easy. Not too difficult.
We had a good professor who was genuinely interested in us learning the material.
I came into this class knowing next to nothing about linux. Coming out of it I have a firm grasp of the basic commands and management features and the tools(Google, Duh?) to learn more, when/if I need to.

Advice for students:
The more you know about Linux coming into this course the better. The teacher scales what he is teaching based on the average skill of his students. So if you come into class with no knowledge like I did you will have to invest more time to keep up. However, if you have an understanding of the basics this class should be fairly easy. If you find yourself wanting to learn more just ask and the professor would probably be more than willing to give you an extra challenge.
