Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend it because it is a very insightful class and the readings are very profound. It is a fairly easy class to pass so long as you attend lectures and pay attention. It gives insight into the brief history of the struggle of immigration and assimilation in America for Asians whereas U.S. History classes in America that I have taken tend to ignore Asians and most other minorities aside from Native Americans and African Americans. The professor clearly cares a lot about the works he teaches and I feel like it really showed in the way he taught this class. This class has become my favorite class.
I learned a lot about the cruel treatment of Asian Americans which was fairly similar to African Americans in many ways but was also very different in many ways. It taught me about the struggles that previous Asian immigrants and Asian Americans in general had to deal with in the U.S. as well as the difficulties of coming to the U.S. and finding a way to survive.

Advice for students:
Make sure to attend EVERY LECTURE. These lectures are important and getting notes from a friend WILL NOT typically cover everything that is discussed. Don't rely on your friends to take good notes unless you have no other choice but to skip lecture. Also, never get behind on your readings. If you do, you will end up being behind the entire quarter unless you're a fast reader.
