    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was not doing a good job explaining the course and the exams were not very indicative of what was taught in class.

    Course highlights:

    It felt like a repeat of high school astronomy. I did not learn much. But the exams were not very indicative of what was taught in class

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that a good prof is teaching the course because it previous years the course was good its just that this professor did not do a great job with it.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The prof for this course is very disorganized but the lectures are alright. The midterm was all about memorization than the actual material. You literally have to memorize every thing (even the graphs!). But if you attend all the lectures (he sometimes tests on things solely mentioned in lectures) and memorize everything (the material itself fairly easy) you should be able to do well.

    Course highlights:

    It is definitely interesting, but because there hasn't been discovered much about life on other planets, the course is mainly about applying what we know on earth and using critical thinking to see if the conditions are possible elsewhere. So no, the course isn't interesting in terms of finding aliens and other extraterrestrial life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just attend the lectures and take notes and memorize the concepts, graphs, textbook for the midterm.
