Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Physics is the cornerstone on which our understanding of the universe around us is built. From bridges and buildings to mobile phones and radio telescopes having a basic, broad understanding of the basics of physics is important in an increasingly complex world.
Gaining an understanding of how basic processes that we take for granted was an important highlight. Although physics can be very complex, especially when you start getting into the more difficult equations conceptually the basics of physics is actually very simple and easy to understand. Much of it is common sense and it is amazing how much of a working knowledge most people have of these basic concepts just through everyday actions and experiences.

Advice for students:
Read your textbook as well as paying attention in class. Also don't just go through the motions when in the lab portion, as it will give you a practical, applicable base of knowledge to bring in to your classroom. Spend a little extra time with the formulas. Although they are simple, as you go through the class they build on each other, For example, force=mass x acceleration. But you need to know that acceleration is displacement/time, and so on.
