Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend taking the class for its vast information about the beginnings of the United States as many people don't know all the facts regarding our nation's history. I also would recommend taking the class because you also get to take a Constitution test which is a requirement in universities, if you pass that test then you shouldn't have to take it in any other school.
I can honestly say that I gained a lot of information regarding the first settlers and the situations of Jamestown which not everyone knows about considering they base their Indian/American history on Disney shows. I would also like to mention that taking English 30B would be a great class to take during this class as they compliment each other on the early American situations/writing.

Advice for students:
I recommend reading the course material as much as you possibly can and to really pay attention to the study guides that he gives you for the course. It may not be the easiest class to study for because the information that is given is a bit dry, but if you focus it isn't that hard.
