Not too easy. Not too difficult.
it is required :) but Cleary does an excellent job. He was easy to learn from, and the tests were on par with the homework.
The biggest highlight of taking this course, was the grade I received at the end of the semester, but seriously the Dr. Cleary is one of the best instructors at South.

Advice for students:
Since this course is sort of a follow up to the course Statics (not to be confused with statistics) I would recommend reviewing your FBD and brushing up in your Trig. Both of those are heavily used in Statics and integral to solving problems in Mechanics of Materials.
