Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Himes does an excellent job at teaching and conveying information. I took this course in high school and this is very similar but more detailed. Before every test he provides us students with a study guide, helping us to determine which topics to focus in on and learn material. He is very friendly and truly wants to help us succeed. There have been times where he has gone out of his way to make sure we are doing well and understanding what is being taught.I highly recommend this class.
So far we have worked on studying the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and now nervous systems. We have focused on general body orientation, the makeup of cells and tissues, the complexity of bones and muscles, and how our brains work. Every class consists of a lecture and a follow up lab. The powerpoints used in lecture are posted online for us to go back as a reference and study from. Our homework consists of studying and taking online quizzes that go along with our textbook. The material is not too easy, but definitely challenging and very interesting.

Advice for students:
Definitely take advantage of reading the textbook. Also, take time to learn material as you go. Cramming one or two nights in advance will do no good. As a nursing major I need to keep a C grade minimum to stay in the program. This means I really have to pay attention in class and put in extra work outside of class. It might seem hard, but once you learn how the class works, you develop your own niche and ways to study that exude the best results.
