Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I personally prefer Existentialism as course to take in the philosophy realm, however, Metaphysics is still an amazing contrasting course to take. Whereas Existentialism is about the subjective, Metaphysics in turn is all about the objective. The course asks "what is?" in the world; what really exists? It tackles some of the most perplexing questions made by humans by a means a hard analytical and logical means.
The theories of time is pretty thought-provoking, the problem of free will, and anything on Plato really is what I found most interesting within the class. I learned that I believe time is an illusion, free will does in fact exist and it is the ability to make choices within every moment you are living, and lastly I actually discovered more of Plato's ideas and teachings.

Advice for students:
To succeed you should ponder and responder on each little idea presented throughout the course to make sure you fully comprehend each segment of the class. It's also best to do all the readings assigned before each class occurs to be able to understand each class and to put your own input into class discussion. Philosophy classes work when the most amount of students are participating in class discussions.
