Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend taking this course because the teacher always gave amazing notes during his lectures. Also, all of the mini assignments that he gave each week really got me involved in the history class and helped me to love a class that I originally disliked. At the end of the semester, I was actually retaining knowledge in the subject more than I usually do.
The highlights of this course were the discussion boards in my opinion. We would apply what we learned that week to the real world, and it was really cool and informing when I read everybody else's responses. I learned to attain different aspects about current events and learned how to think outside the box when it came down to our discussion question responses.

Advice for students:
If any student chose to take this course, I would heavily advise taking notes as you read through the given chapter(s) for the week. Most people believe that reading the book isn't necessary, but for this class it is. If you take notes as you read, and read over your notes on a daily basis, you would be highly prepared for the mini quizzes each week.
