Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was a fairly easy class. The professor wasn't the nicest and he'll lecture at you, not with you. There's a quiz every week but as long as you read and ANSWER THE HOMEWORK QUESTIONS, you'll do fine. All of the questions on the quizzes end up on each of the exams, which is extremely helpful for studying.
I think space is very interesting so I personally loved learning about it, even though it has nothing to do with my major. If you have the slightest interest in looking at stars or how the planets came to be, take this class! I've heard horror stories about other professors, and I personally didn't think the professor was all that bad!

Advice for students:
Actually go to class, he has an in-class participation system that he does at least once a week. This will help you get the attendance points and learn more when he asks you to answer questions. Take notes in class, read the chapters, and answer the questions he assigns. The homework isn't due for points, but it is extremely beneficial for the quizzes each week. Study your notes and quizzes for the exams.
