Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course material is difficult but Dr. Mendoza does not make it more so. There are a lot of equations to memorize, but he provides a matching section on the test. Getting a B in this class is very very easy. Getting an A requires more work because he does take little points off for almost everything. I am a little bit worried that this class wouldn't prepare someone for the next level if they were to get a B.
I studied a lot for this class and learned how to apply many different physical laws to solve problems. Professor Mendoza clearly knows A LOT about physics and the world of science in general. He uses examples that make you realize what these equations actually do in the real world.

Advice for students:
Pay attention to every detail and show your work. He'll only take one point off if your answer is wrong on a test, but that same point will be taken off for the date missing on your lab report.
