Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class is a really heavy work load! The lab reports are very long and require a lot of work outside of class. You also have two rather extensive homework assignments during the semester which are worth something like 15 or 20% of your grade. Almost your entire overall grade is based on the midterm and the final, so you'll need to do well on those.
I learned a lot of cool experimental techniques, and my favorite experiment was Luminol.

Advice for students:
Be sure to study hard on the midterm. It's a lot harder than the final and it determines a VERY large portion of your grade.
