Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course wasn't technically required for my major- as I didn't enter college with a major- but it helped me to choose what I did want to study and what I want to major in (I think)! Logic is a really fundamental course for any field of study, having practical applications in every discipline, and I definitely recommend taking the course if you're unsure of what you want to study or if you're thinking about law, philosophy, teaching, or any kind of theoretical science or math, because while the course is not often required for majors related to those, in courses I've taken since this one I have seen how it fits into the framework of these areas of study in significant ways.
I really gained a respect for the writers of textbooks. My professor happened to be one of the co-authors of the text we used, which helped me to succeed in the class in that I understood exactly how the course would be structured. The same goes for whoever wrote the text, though, in that it really is essential to take the time to read over things in an expert's words and then apply them to the kinds of questions they create to help you think in a similar way and grow from their knowledge as a foundation. There is so much information given and it's so easy to access nowadays. This class challenged me but was also the most interesting and fulfilling to me as one of the first college courses I ever took. Learning and studying logic in a semi-formalized manner may seem boring and silly as there are a lot of what may seem to be irrelevant proofs, but the process of going through the examples and content given really pay off when you are able to apply that type of analytical thinking to other facets of study and consideration.

Advice for students:
The information is intuitive to a large extent- it's based off of how we view the world. If you're not at a place to where you're able to reassess how you think and adjust it to not only help you succeed in the course, but succeed in life... then I'd still say take this course and you'll see the value of going through such a process.
