Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I think this class allows you to appreciate the skills you learn in Calc II because integrating becomes applicable to daily life, especially for engineering majors. Even if you don't become an engineer, you learn math and problem solving skills that will take you far in any path you choose.
For example, you begin to understand how calculus is used to measure fluid movement in chemical engineering, to measure particle flow in electrical engineering, or to locate the center of mass of objects in mechanical engineering and physics. You can start to see how these abstract math concepts have concrete applications.

Advice for students:
Go to class! A lot of students stop attending towards the end of the semester, and that's when the material gets really tough. A lot of times, the provided study guide is pretty similar to the exam, but be safe and get conceptual questions answered in office hours before the exam because you can't rely on just the study guide for the final.
