Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's a great introduction in to engineering - and after the course, you look at bridges and other structures completely differently.
The highlight of the course was doing more and more involved problems, where you'd need to consider several aspects of the structure you were looking at. Being able to put all the knowledge together to produce an outcome was very rewarding.

Practice is the key. Although it's not the hardest subject at uni, it requires consistent practice. The key is remembering that net force in the x and y directions are equal to zero, as is the sum of the moments.
