Not too easy. Not too difficult.
You get to learn how to write up proposals, quotes, keep a record of the time spent working on your projects. You also get to visit firms during class trips.
I would have to say visiting different firms, and showrooms. Some of the places I visited, I have never heard of. I learned about fabric vendors that go through the showrooms, and how they come up with ideas to make new furniture. What the furniture is made out of, and different ways they group their work spaces.

Advice for students:
When taking this class, you have to make sure that you do the assignments on time before it's due. The more you hold off the the work, the more you'll end up being behind. As for the tests, make sure you study, because the way the test is worded, is not the way the professor explained in class.
