    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was the class that made me choose to be an astronomy major. Professor Pope is very passionate about what she teaches, and always makes time for questions. She makes everything easy to understand and there are lots of hands-on demonstrations.

    Course highlights:

    I haven't completed the course yet, so I don't have the full information, but I can tell you that it's a great introduction to the course - you cover all the basics very thoroughly, yet in terms easy to understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS DO THE READING. It covers the material that you'll discuss in the next class, and it's much easier to take notes if you already know the basics. Also, it'll allow you to come prepared with any questions you might have.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mo's enthusiasm is unrivaled from a teaching perspective.

    Course highlights:

    My only complaint is he made the class too easy.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    By providing solutions to all the homeworks (which were subsequently quizzed and tested on) it was easy graze over the material with little thought.
