Always Do the Reading
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course, while easy, does have an important mathematical component to it, and both the readings and the lecture are riddled in equations and formulas that astronomers use. The readings are not too overly complicated and the tests are easy enough, but there are a lot of quizzes and homework to be completed throughout the semester.
The course does teach you a lot about how the universe actually works, how planets evolve, how stars function, and also how astronomers come about their observations. The professor also tends to do demonstrations in class with various instruments which I would say are the biggest highlights of the lectures.

Advice for students:
Really consider this class carefully, it is math heavy and gives out homework, readings, and quizzes every week. The information in the class is not too difficult, and the tests are easy to pass with a good score, but students should read the text since there are subjects which the professor does not discuss during the lectures.
