Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this class with Hedeman, as he makes learning about the quantum world extremely simple and fascinating. He began the year with noting on how people say "To learn quantum physics, throw everything you know about classical physics out the window. There's no intuition for it." But he says this is an inaccurate mentality! That there is an intuition, but you have to build that intuition through taking the course. He's right, the more you work with quantum, the more things start to make sense in a weird way.
For me, the highlights included using linear algebra, a concept in math I hadn't ever thought there would be physical applications for. However, much of quantum physics is done in the realm of "kets" and "bras" - i.e., vectors. Not to mention the matrices that represent operators. This might sound like mumbo jumbo right now, but you can and will learn this language quickly in taking this class!

Advice for students:
Take good notes, ask questions in lecture, and if ever in doubt, use the book! Griffiths is a great author, and oftentimes, the teacher lectures pretty much straight from the book. Reading it is highly illuminating, and it's a pretty easy too!
