Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course itself is a required course for all Stern Freshmen, but I highly recommend Professor Bowmaker as he is probably one of the best Microeconomics professors Stern has. Is he not only thoroughly prepared for every class, but he also goes over different approaches to a single type of problem during class by showing his own work on the powerpoint. It is really helpful because we can learn first-handedly from the professor's own workings. He is really good at explaining concepts in general as well, which I guess goes as a given to be a good teacher.
For me personally, the game theory was very entertaining. Sure, I learned much more than just that in this class (everything from consumer theory to moral hazards and externalities), but game theory was what got me really hooked into the class. Its incorporation into the business field was very refreshing as it taught me how to look at economics with the "gamer's mind."

Advice for students:
Make sure you review the powerpoints at home! Everything Prof. Bowmaker tells you in the class will be on the powerpoint. You don't need to buy the textbook (You'll never use it, especially because the professor covers everything you need to know), but that's your choice. Just make sure to do all of your assignments and go to every class. What he says is more important than what he writes.
