    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are not a science major I would NOT recommend this course. It is super boring, the teacher is so disorganized and very scattered in lecture. It makes it extremely hard to follow along and the tests dont test over large concepts, they test over ridiculously minute details that you would only learn over memorization.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are that at least all of the homework is on quizlet. Oh and DONT buy the starrynight software! You only use it for one lab, which you dont even need it for and its a complete waste of money.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I truly dont know how to study for it. Just memorize as much as you can I guess. Make sure to put in effort into the labs because those are easy points. The tests will kill you though. She asks very specific questions and you will not be prepared if you just know general concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you like to independently take notes on slides and show up to lectures for clicker quizzes, this is your class. She lectures in a way that's very difficult to follow, but she is oblivious to stuff which makes it easy to get out of deadlines and cheat on homework. Overall, it is extremely hard to make sense of the content from class and the best bet you'll have at passing is either cheating on literally EVERYTHING or by having a burning passion for physics.

    Course highlights:

    Nothing. I learned that apparently light has chemical fingerprints and that I didn't know what I was getting into when I enrolled in this course. You think that stars are the only thing you'd learn about in astronomy, but there is actually a lot of physics involved. So be prepared for content that is more difficult than what the title of the course entails.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Online homework has a lot of answers on quizlet, but if you're unsure of something ASK HER ABOUT IT RIGHT AWAY. DO NOT WAIT. DO NOT PUT OFF LABS TILL THE LAST SECOND BECAUSE THEY MAY SEEM EASY BUT END UP TO BE SUPER CONFUSING.
