    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very tough class. It took a lot of studying and outside work to fully comprehend the material and be able to effectively study for the tests. The lectures never complimented what were on the exams.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about our solar systems and the stars and the galaxy as a whole. I liked learning about black holes. I also liked being able to go out and see actual things in the sky as part of our observation journals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and pay attention to the homework. Make sure you really put an honest effort into what is going on.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The math portion of this course was intense. As a artistic minded person, formulas have always been difficult for me. There are many formulas involved for gauging distance and size.

    Course highlights:

    The online videos and diagrams are very detailed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do NOT blow off this class. It's online but it can be tough!!!
