Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in the math honors track or in linear algebra. Professor Pisztora's approach to the subject, although highly theoretical, succeeds in it's ability to provide perfect examples, applications, and its succinctness.
The highlights of this course include Prof Pisztora's humor, his handwritten notes, and the well written and perfectly designed problem sets. I learned just as much about matrix theory as I learned on how to be a better mathematician.

Advice for students:
Supplement the course by reading along or ahead in Linear Algebra and its Applications by Gilbert Strang. Always attend lecture having the material read beforehand. The homework may be hard, but the midterms and final exam are much more reasonable. Pay attention in class and practice the old stuff so you can do simple computations. Reading Strang will help with the basic proofs on exams.
