    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures are the general bases for your grade, but in order to really succeed in the class you must read the book. Also, check your attendance regularly, because the TA's did lose a few of my attendance notes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the value of reading ahead and to continue trying harder even though you may fail at first. I failed my first exam, but was able to bounce back on the next one. I felt like a lot of people blamed the professor for there downfalls, instead of taking actions themselves.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is an interesting course, astronomy is fun in my opinion. Just again be sure to study ahead of class when you can, and get involved with others. A lot of time, I learned a subject matter better from my peers.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Robinson makes it easy to pay attention to his lectures with his witty humor and interactive ways of teaching.

    Course highlights:

    Taking the course allowed me to brush up on and gain new math skills that I wouldn't have been able to use anywhere else.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every class, there are mini quizzes everyday and exam every Friday. The only way to ace the exams is to pay attention to each lecture carefully.
