    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think that this course was very informational. I definitely learned some interesting things about the Universe and its many processes. However, it was a lot of work and the moon project was hard to complete due to unpredictable weather.

    Course highlights:

    I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in on the lectures and hearing my professor speak. I found learning about space to be a very interesting topic, so the lectures were very interesting for me

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you stay on top of your readings. A lot of information from the textbook was helpful to know for the exams. Do not procrastinate your readings as more are assigned and they will pile up if you do not read them.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very informational, but a lot of work. The moon project was hard to accomplish with the weather being unpredictable. Overall, though I did learn a lot about the Universe and its may processes.

    Course highlights:

    The lab sections were very interesting and I found that I learned quite a bit from them. However, I think that the information from the labs was not useful to information that we were tested on. Most of the labs did not help with studying for the chapter exams and the final exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, stay up to date with your required readings. I found that if I missed my readings it was hard to catch back up as more reading would be assigned. The book was very helpful with information that was on the exams, so make sure to actually read your book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Humphreys is very knowledgeable about the course, but is very soft spoken, so try to sit in the first 2 or 3 rows to hear her. Also she tends to move on tangents pertaining to the subject, but ultimately will not be on her tests or will be needed, so try to skim out of the text book after her lectures just to ensure you understand the days topic. Flashcard were very helpful for me. If the lectures become tedious, as they do, and a bit overwhelming just ensure that you attend ALL of your labs and do your best on those, and STAY ON TOP of your Moon Project. If you do bad on the exams the Lab and Moon Project will save you and hold you in a passing grade worst comes worst.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was seeing how the Moon Project tied together in the end. and the Labs were a lot of fun to actually do, because I'me a very hands on person, so the lectures didn't really absorb well for me but the labs helped me better understand what I needed to know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure this course is something you're truly interested in, and by that I mean do not take it thinking its a blow off course cause it isn't and it requires your attention in order to do well.
