Pretty easy, overall.
This course is very doable. Mastering Physics is the main tool to getting a good grade. Most people will avoid doing the homework and just search for answers online. If you do this it's ok, but only if you understand the material. If you don't, then you will be kicking yourself in the butt. Study hard and ask questions. Try the problems out first and then resort to the web to make sure you did the questions correctly.
Labs were fun. They make learning the subject more entertaining and he might do a "unofficial" lab with a rocket.

Advice for students:
It requires a lot of studying in Mastering Physics. If you put the time (the answers are all online somewhere) you are guruanteed at least a B in the class.
