Pretty easy, overall.
I took the AP Version of this course, AP Statistics, in high school. Overall it was a really fun and exciting course, with more real-world applications than I could count. Useful for almost any career as well as simply reading, I found that I could grasp scientific studies and papers with ease after this course. It's about 3.9 hours of work a week, with 2 midterms and a final. Not too bad!
We covered 1 and 2 variate statistics, experimental design, probability, and basic statistical inference (p, z, x^2, t tests). Highlights were the real-world examples to which all the material pertained. Most useful class I've ever had. A relatively easy freshman course as well.

Advice for students:
Study with friends, and don't put off the homework til the last day. Always keep your calculator charged! :)
