This class was tough.
I would not recommend it unless you are truly into astronomy. This class is very time consuming if you are trying to pass with an A and the professor does not really teach yo or give you a study guide for the quiz. You really have to study on your own time to get the subject matter. The test are 100 questions a piece based on multiple chapters in the book. His lectures rarely help you on the test.
I honestly did not actually learn much in this class, however I learned that an Astronomical Unit (AU) is the average distance between Earth and the Sun.

Advice for students:
You will need a tape recorder and plenty of paper/pens to pass this course. Do not get too caught up in extra stuff and forget to study for the tests. Get cool with people in the class and try to get a study group going. This class is h-e-double hockey sticks. Be prepared to do research on your own.
