Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it walks you through every major event that lead to the formation of America as we know it . Not just that , you go in depth as to why certain things happened the way they did . For instance , you learn that there were many tries for a peaceable compromise before the thought of the Civil War came about . People from both the North and the South tried many times to come to some sort of agreement but the ideas they came up with were not accepted my the majority of those voting on them . It was really interesting to think that had one thing changed in the past then , our history would have changed dramatically .
The highlights of this course for me was the amount knowledge that I thought I knew but got more in depth info on . I also enjoyed just learning what all went into the creating of America as we know it today . There were a lot of trials and challenges that were faced by everyone here and learning how they overcame them was interesting . Learning about differences and similarities between the people that were here , that came here , those that settled in the north or the south , those of color , those not of color . This class really went into depth explaining all of that .

Advice for students:
Read read read ! Set time aside everyday to chip away at the chapters you have to read so that when you come to class next time you can contribute to the discussions and know what the answers are to the quiz questions. Take notes , make outlines or flashcards for key concepts and terms . Any and everything can and will be on the tests . Make sure that whatever you need to do to remember those important concepts , you do it .
