    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very easy and straight forward class! All assignments are reasonably spaced out and quizzes allow you to retake them for a set amount of times, which allow you to see what you're doing good at and what you may need to study more of.

    Course highlights:

    The cloud lesson was, perhaps, my favourite lesson. It consisted almost entirely of looking at pictures and comparing them to cloud descriptions. Very easy and didn't use much brain power, which is excellent as it happens towards the end of the semester.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attempt all the chances of the quizzes and WRITE DOWN THE ANSWERS. 95% of the test questions are from the quizzes and quizzes tell you which problems you get wrong.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course for someone, especially if they are not adaptable to the online learning environment. There are about five quizzes in the semester, one final, self assessments and one term project. The term project is very crucial to you grade, therefor I recommend paying close attention to the directions. He does not round under any circumstances, work hard throughout the semester in order to not worry about it towards the end. You rarely use the book, I suggest buying it with a friend and splitting it so you will be able to save some money. Overall, it is very possible to receive an A or a B in the course, you may have to work harder and go in for office hours to earn an A. However, it will be worth it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the final, the final was optional which relieved stress on everyone. In addition, the final was able to replace your two lowest quiz scores which was also great. I also enjoyed the term project (don't save it until the last minute). The term project entailed you observing a locations weather patterns throughout a whole month. I thought this information was the most useful, because I am now able to read the weather patterns on TV.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering this course would be, to go in for office hours. This is helpful, because you are in an online course, therefor, it is beneficial for the professor to put a name to the face. I also believe students should not wait until the last minute or weekend to finish the term project, it is a lot of work to cram into one weekend and it is not that difficult if you spread it out throughout the semester.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was very general but gave good information as to the weather and climate of the world in terms of chemistry and physics

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was the science experiment that we had to conduct and tests were fairly as long as you attended the lectures

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to lecture I found that when I went to lecture consistently I would not have to study very much because most of the information on his tests he discusses in lecture.
