Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took the class to fulfill my natural science requirement and was suggested the class because it might relate to my social studies major more, than say, astronomy or the like. But rather than sit and learn about the growth of civilizations I find myself learning about what distinguishes new world monkeys from old world monkeys, dental formulas, carbon dating, the anatomy of humans in comparison to transitionary apes, etc. I'm not going to deny that the class isn't interesting (because it truly can be) but the exams can be rather tough and it truly wasn't for me. If this is more your ball park then go ahead, you might find the class more enjoyable than I did.
I genuinely did find it fascinating how many evolutionary transitions there were between the last common ancestor we shared with chimpanzees, to the point we are now. The gradual changes in pelvic structures, mandibles size, and other features truly makes one appreciate how the odds worked to put humans ahead.

Advice for students:
There's no homework or anything to do outside of class, but when a test rolls around please study for it. It's not the kind of material you can glance over once and except to memorize. It's complex at times and confusing at others, especially if science isn't what you're good at.
