I'm finishing up my general physics 2 course (today actually) and I begin my upper division courses in Fall. I was wondering how you found general physics 2 compared to intermediate modern physics in terms of difficulty? I found physics 2 (basically introductory E&M at my school) more difficult than physics 1 but generally pretty straightforward.

After PHY 2 on E&M comes Waves and Optics and then followed by the Modern Physics on relativity and the quanta as such. At least that's how I remember it. Each course gets more and more difficult, as would be expected. Now you don't gave to be genius to get a fairly good handle on the first three, but on the fourth, ...tough stuff.

Optics was also covered in Physics 2. So I'm basically about to begin the "tough stuff."
