Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is an excellent teacher to learn physics from, he knows his material, is passionate about the course, and makes it relatively easy to understand the subject. Though i wasn't great at paying attention in class, he makes it a requirement to keep a journal of the work you've done in your homework, so I always had a motivation to understand the chapters. He also provides fantastic lecture notes that actually teach better than the required books do.
The course isn't too difficult to understand if you put the time into it. The teacher was very attentive with his students and the tests followed his lecture notes. As long as you're willing to put in some effort, a good grade is easy to achieve. Because of the way that Godunov teaches, unless you didn't care at all, it's impossible not to leave without knowing the fundamentals of physics. For me, I feel as though I've retained a great deal of knowledge to the point where i think about the physics happening every day. Going into physics 2, I know I'll have an easy time.

Advice for students:
Be willing to put the time in to understand the material, not just for the homework or upcoming test, but for yourself. All the material relates to each other, so never feel like you won't have to understand something ever again. If you have a hard time understanding something, try and form a study group with others, because there may be something you understand that they don't
