Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Even though I was required to take this course, I recommend it highly, because I genuinely enjoyed it. The professor kept things interesting, because he would continuously reference to current events and would show us videos of them. For such a long class, I did not ever feel overloaded with information during a class period, but i would discourage taking the class at 8 in the morning. There are selected readings from the textbook and from given handouts. As far as the textbook, I only skimmed them, but I did read the handouts, because the test usually ask some questions from them.
In this course, I learned all about our government in America. You go explicitly into learning about Congress, the Presidency, the Supreme Court, and interest groups. There is a final paper for this class, but do not let it discourage you from taking the course. The paper is actually not that difficult, but it is a research paper. The professor wants the paper to fun for the students, therefore he lets you pick the relevant subject. You will have to read some Federalists Paper and do not think that you can get away with not reading them, because they will show up on the tests.

Advice for students:
Make sure you read the handout given and on GeorgiaVIew, because they will show up on the test. Maybe skim the textbook. Read the textbook if you do not understand something from the powerpoint, because the book does well at explaining. GO TO CLASS. He does not post the powerpoints anywhere, therefore to get the notes, you need to go to class.
