Not too easy. Not too difficult.
After taking AP Physics in high school (both the B and C courses/tests), this course helped me to understand what I couldn't in those two years. My confusion from the years past was caused by the little time we had to actually learn the principles, which in turn was caused by the fact I hadn't taken a general physics class. The two-day-a-week schedule, along with weekly homework drilled material in my head, and the after school tutoring sessions gave me the opportunity to have any unanswered questions resolved. Professor Budick is great in that he sends us scans of the day's lecture, so it's advised that you look over the notes before you come in, as well as reading the textbook.
As a Chemistry major, it was nice to learn about thermodynamics (though it was towards the end of the semester that we reached this topic). The only confusing thing was remember the chemistry definition of work vs the physics definition. Otherwise, it was nice getting a refresher and different perspective on the topic.

Advice for students:
I only really started reading the textbook during second semester, when I was in the second part of this class, but that is highly recommended to improve your understanding and therefore your test grades. In General Physics classes, there is a curve, but it's easier on your self esteem if you get a good grade from the get go. Like I mentioned before, it's also good to go to any study sessions or after school tutoring rounds as frequent as possible. Come with questions so that you can relearn the material efficiently.
