Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Consistent and predictable workload, mix of hard, easy, and moderate examples, thorough explanations. Do not take this course if you haven't already taken Chemistry in Highschool. The workload is heavy, but the online homework is reasonably easy, just tedious.
Hardest part of the course was molecular geometry. Flashcards are really important.

Advice for students:
FLASHCARDS ARE GREAT. If you take notes, you'll find most everything you need to study is already in them. Weekly quizzes were given out at recitation and submitted online over the weekend. I didn't love the weekend tests but they weren't awful, you just have to stay on top of the work.
