Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend taking this course. History has never been my forte. It's never kept my interest for long and I have never gotten perfect grades in it. Professor Ehrick really makes it interesting though. You can tell she has such a passion for the material she is teaching you. She explains topics clearly and relates them to other things going on in the world during the time. This is the first time I have ever done well in a history course and I believe it's because it's actually an enjoyable one.
This course covers the history of the "world" from about 1660 forward. We're learning a lot about the major happenings in the world such as the scientific and industrial revolutions, but we've also learned about topics I've never covered before such as the Haitian Revolution. You cover a lot of material in a short amount of time but it is all very interesting. 10/10 would recommend.

Advice for students:
The advice I'd give is to keep up with the readings, and try to keep a running time-line of what is happening in different places in the world at the same time.
