    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Roberts makes the class very interesting and comical and the labs are very helpful. He also offers exemption from the exam if you do the labs, show up to class and participate as well as take the tests.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the Solar system and beyond is far more complex then I imagined and opened my eyes to learn more about whats above the blue-sky and how it shaped and created our world and all the other planets.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class, write the test answers with questions he provides, participate, and do every lab and this class will be a breeze.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wish so bad I'd just taken Chem. If you are just looking for a science to fill the requirement take anyone else but her. I heard Mr. Richards is pretty easy. Her lectures are very interesting but if you dont get it there's not a whole lot of help to be had by her. I would love to take this class if I didnt have anything else going on in life. Its an interesting course but It requires a LOT of time put into it. The only good thing was attendance is not required, good attendance just gets you bonus points.

    Course highlights:

    Its a very interesting course about the contents of the universe and what space matter and planetary bodies tells us about earth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    only take lawler if you are a phys major!
