Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I'll start by saying that I took this course during the summer. With that being said know that its a lot more intense than taking it during trimesters, but it really allows you to succeed because its probably the only course you're gonna be taking. Expect to be putting in four hours in class and around the same at home doing homework.
I liked this specific course because its one instead of the two divisions of precalculus you usually take. Math 1500 is basically a stepping stone to a lot of other classes like Chemistry, Physics and of course furthering math.

Advice for students:
You need to put in the work, the hours, and maybe a study group in there too. I will state that khan academy.com is a fantastic resource too.
