Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The instructor is amazing and engaging, two things you need when taking a general course. Introductions to psychology can often be a lot of information to retain and understand while trying to remember that it can definitely be more enjoyable than learning every theory from the last hundred years. Himle does a great job incorporating interesting ways of looking at old theories and on implementing or recognizing them in our own lives.
It has been a little while since I've taken this course but I did get to learn a little about each discipline that was later expected to be elaborated further (in required core classes). I learned a bit about neuroscience (memory pathways), a little about behavioral science (persuasion techniques and why we do what we do), and cognitive science. This course touches on just about a bit of everything. The highlights were definitely the required credits for participating in research on campus BECAUSE it makes you actually learn what psychology studies and how it operates beyond the classes.

Advice for students:
You will have to read the textbook and take the required quizzes, it is easier if you are actively participating throughout the class rather than thinking you already know it. The tests are not too difficult if you try to study and understand the material. While it was pretty easy of a course, it is one that you need to work for because you probably won't want to take it again.
