Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you have the choice of taking US History 2 over US History 1, I recommend US History 2. The final exam is open book whereas the final in USHistory 1 is closed book. It is possible to pass USHist2 before the final if you do well on the unit tests. You still have to take the final exam but you can practically click through the final exam and pass the course if you have over 700 points on the unit tests.
The textbook for US History 2 is more interesting than the test for US History 1.

Advice for students:
Watch the eLessons to get ahold of the timeline of the information. Then use the textbook for the open book unit tests.
