Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was an interesting course simply for the sake of learning how our local and state governments manage their money. For nonprofit students, be prepared to barely touch the nonprofit side of this course title; most of the time is spent on governmental accounting, and the final project focuses on a government budget.
I learned how to read my county's CAFR, how to read government budgets, and the complexities that go into them.

Advice for students:
There may be times where you will have to reference material from previous accounting courses. The math is no more complicated than it was in previous accounting courses. Look up your local government's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and familiarize yourself with its sections. You don't need to memorize things, but take note of what type of information is provided and in what sections.
