Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend if you just want to get this requirement over and done with. There is no depth to the material. It is pretty much basics of the brain and emotions. I would have liked to have had more interaction and maybe a team project to put what was learned to use.
I gained a foundation of how the brain works. I gained a good introduction to what I would be studying for the next 3 years. Highlights included the dissection of the brain in theory. Also, in the reading there was highlights of research of people who had part of their brain removed.

Advice for students:
Read the assigned chapters and take lots of notes. If you are doing an online course ask questions. Start a dialog with the professor.
