Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you don't know anything about programming i recommend taking the "Fundamentals of C" course with Ronald Burgher at Palomar College. its a great 1st step into programming.
This course is pretty cool. i learned the basics of programming the language C. even though a lot of people agree that C is a dead language. Taking this course will allow for an easier transition to other languages like C++, Java, Python.

Advice for students:
I would advice you to get the textbooks early as some of the homework he assign comes straight out of the book. Other than that just pay attention and don't be afraid to ask questions. Remember its an basically and intro class so he wont expect you to know everything so ask questions to things you do not understand
