My course is using Rudin, however I've heard that it's not the best text for learning measure theory and extremely difficult. What are some good supplements?

I went thru most of Royden first before tackling Rudin. Folland is also commonly used.

those all look good. my analyst friends also like wheeden and zygmund, and stein and shakarchi.
one of my friends, malcolm adams, also cowrote one, by adams and guillemin, whose name is measure theory and probability.
