Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is a good overview of the history of ancient Greece and Rome. Dr. Cogan is really passionate about the information, and it shows through in her lectures. If you're looking for a class to fulfill the breadth humanities course requirement, this would be a good one to take.
One of the main things I learned from taking this course was how to better analyze and apply the information that you are learning.

Advice for students:
Make sure you do the assigned reading every week; the quizzes are quite difficult to pass if you haven't read the material. Also, make sure you are constantly reviewing the material, and pay attention when she makes connections during the lectures and during the discussions. The essay portion of the exams focuses mainly on those connections and patterns throughout history. Also, make sure you go to class. It's really helpful when it comes to the exams, and knowing what's happening in general.
