Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is essential to learning Computer Science. It teaches you the basic and necessary data structures that you will be using throughout your career in the field of CS. It also gets you familiarized with the basic algorithms of using those structures.
I learned all about the basic data structures used in programming. Looking back, they were of huge help in CS interviews. Some of the questions from the interviews were variations of the assignments we had already done in the class. :)

Advice for students:
Don't try to memorize all features/functions of the data structures. As long as you have a general understanding of when and how to use them, the rest of the information will come to you naturally!
