Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was very good for obtaining background knowledge on American history. Otherwise, it had the tendency to be a bit dry at times, especially if you are not personally interested in United States History. Also, another thing that can make or break your experience with this course is your teacher. My teacher liked to maintain a balance between lectures and class discussion, which worked well for our class. However, if you are not so lucky, I imagine that the class could be quite tedious.
The thing I most enjoyed learning from this class was the additional points of view of things in history that I had previously learned. Since this class tries to go a bit more in depth with American history, students have the opportunity to read primary sources and analyses that can open your eyes to our past.

Advice for students:
If you are considering taking this course, you should be ready to read a lot and to keep up with those readings. If you don't like to read or have trouble managing your time on reading assignments, this may not be the course for you since it is very book heavy.
