I have to admit that, having taken the upgrade, I think it's probably harder... but only in the sense that it doesn't cover the fundamentals that haven't changed between versions. You're left to deal with only the areas that are new, so in the sense that it's without all the easier questions...
Still, I'll admit that I did rather like the fact that it was shorter, so it evens out.
