Pretty easy, overall.
I recommend this course because I finished this course as a freshmen and as an graduate student I designed the new lab. Before I was hired at my current company I designed the new labs and taught students in the lab course. This course is not hard if you apply yourself and you arrive to class/lab with a good attitude.
What I learned from this course is the importance of taking care of the environment, learning how to manage my time, and everything I learned in high school is relevant in this course.

Advice for students:
The big thing for the classroom is pay attention, take notes, read ahead of time. Also when a test is coming up get together with a group of people from class and study. For the lab, their is a quiz every week and they are relatively easy, as long as you read ahead of time. Also they are reoccurring themes in the lab so pay attention in the beginning.
