    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's an easy class if you just take the 30-minutes per week to study for the quiz. People complain about it being hard but honestly it was just people that didn't put in effort or weren't good at memorizing. Dr. Robinson is fun and engaging and he tries to keep you awake with humor. I usually never paid attention, doing more productive stuff on my computer, and ended up with an A anyway. If you struggle in this class, college is going to be pretty rough because it can't get much easier.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn about the universe because I knew nothing about it before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it if you need an easy A.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I don't reccommed it because although she had various PowerPoints and textbook, the test was all conceptual. And as someone who does not do well in conceptual test in regards to a class that i had very little interest, I didn't do so hot.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that astronomy is hard. And there are more stars than grains of sands.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take finkelstein and your life will be so much better.
