Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It really does completely depend on your major, but Professor Jang is a great teacher and this course is challenging enough to test your skills with structural engineering.
I gained the ability to analyze all structures and really think critically about a structure in real life, because not all beams ever constructed are simply supported after all. Now, I cannot look at any building, bridge or truss without visualizing its internal forces and reactive forces keeping it standing.

Advice for students:
Have access to the book in some way because it is a good reference and certainly come to class alert and ready to practice using concepts you're about to learn. For exams, be sure to practice problems so that you will know exactly what to do when you see it on an exam and are expected to solve it.
