Pretty easy, overall.
The professor is a very lively instructor and gives practical advice to his students. He is a generous grader, so don't worry too much about the assignment. As long as it's coherent and not completely off-topic, most small assignments should be returned with an A. The real worries are the take-home tests, which are very long and tedious at times.
You learn a lot of practical knowledge concerning your own personal finance. For example, during the course of this class, I got my first credit card, a decision I finally felt comfortable doing with the knowledge I gained from this class. I'm hoping to invest in stocks soon, too, which is another financial decision best done early. There's also some interesting projects where you keep track of your own finances, and this was pretty helpful in managing your own money. That said, you could easily make up your own personal information, but then you would learn nothing.

Advice for students:
You always have a small assignment due, but they are often very simple and quick to do. But then you have a few take-home tests, and they take up and ungodly amount of time. Be sure not to put them off, as it may be tempting since the professor is generous enough to accept late work, but since this class is such an easy A, you wouldn't want to ruin it with a tardiness penalty.
