Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The homework is pretty easy, just find the answer on PDF. It's fun like finding where's Waldo! The midterm is extremely specific, so I recommend taking notes on each chapter. Studying the written assignments isn't enough to do well. I did only that and received an 80 on my midterm!
Do the homework, and take notes. The midterm is EXTREMELY specific, in terms of instrumentation. The final paper is very thorough as well, 15 pages. I suggest working on it as early as possible.

Advice for students:
Start on the final paper ASAP. Anything is fair game for the midterm, so i hate to say it but you have to know...everything..take notes on each instrumentation, specifically highlight points not covered on written assignments. Also there are enabling objectives, which doesn't hurt, but once again isn't enough to Ace the midterm. so.... 1) written assignments 2)take notes 3) enabling objectives
