Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The main pros of the course are that it is a very accessible format - you can watch lecture videos at your place and class attendance isn't necessary. However, it is important for you to keep up with the work and not fall behind. It's a good general overview of fundamental statistics any college-educated individual should know. Keep in mind that for math-oriented people this course is easy while for social science/humanities people it can be a bit challenging, as it was for me.
The course will give you the basic tools of statistics to be an informed consumer in the modern era. This means understanding surveys, data analysis, regressions, and how many manipulate statistics for their own misuse.

Advice for students:
Practice practice practice! Stats is a matter of drill and kill. You won't get by without having solved 100s of problems. That's the true way to ace exams.
