Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Anyone considering engineering must take this course. If you are not an engineer and need a general core class then this is a good class as well. It will enlighten you with basic knowledge of how the world works around you from the physics surrounding throwing a ball to the laws that govern bodies.
There was plenty of material in this course. For example, I learned how to calculate the position, velocity, and acceleration of an object in linear, circular, and projectile motion. In addition, I learned how to calculate forces (i.e. force of gravity, drag, and friction) and use them to complete an analysis on a system. Other topics covered include impulse and momentum, orbits, and basic thermodynamics.

Advice for students:
It is necessary to have an open mind. It is sometimes necessary to view a concept from a different perspective in order for it to make sense.
