Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's a very important course to take if you wish to continue taking other chemistry courses. It is a prerequisite for most.
It has a pretty good overview of most concepts already covered from high school chemistry. In some areas it goes into more detail. also don't really need to buy the textbook, its a waste unless you really like reading content heavy information to help you understand concepts. the required course notes are very straight forward and helpful.

Advice for students:
definitely do the practice exams - they are very good examples of what the midterm and final are like. Watch Dr. Marta's podcasts if you are ever stuck on a concept, he is amazing and does a very good job at explaining concepts - he also writes the course notes for the course.
