Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I have both good and bad things to say about the course and the professor. The good: professor Seymour loves his subject and teaches it accurately, he wants us to understand the concepts more than number crunch, and he's willing to slow down and really delve into the physics. Professor Seymour allowed me to take his calculus-based Physics 2211 even though I hadn't taken Calculus yet because I had straight A's, so he's willing to work with students and he truly appreciates those who make an effort. The bad: because he slows down and because he often gets sidetracked by irrelevant topics, the class fell behind greatly. Also, he was always late to class, often came without markers or his flash drive for teaching, and he takes quite a while to grade anything and get it back to students.
I took both Seymour's 2211 and 2212 classes and I truly feel I have a better understanding of how things around me work. It's surprising how little we know of how common objects work until we learn about them in depth and realize how complicated they are.

Advice for students:
Read the chapters! Seymour loves students who will carry on an intelligent conversation about his material and it helps keep him on track. He loves his subject and when his students ask questions and, even more preferably, raise questions, that's when he teaches his best.
