    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for students with a scientific mindset. It approaches the major topics regarding geology.

    Course highlights:

    One major highlight from this course would be the geologic time scale which is divided into subdivisions. Those subdivisions include; eons, eras, periods, and epochs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A well-organized calendar/planner. It is important gone aware of test dates and to have reviewed notes in anticipation of said exams. Another tip would be to accomplish any assignments as early as possible as this will leave space to focus on other courses.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're looking for a class that's both easy and interesting, take ESC1000 with Prof. Stemle online. He has all the due dates laid out from the day the course opens. The assignments are quick and simple, and the tests are easy to study for - all you have to do is read the book and take the practice quizzes!

    Course highlights:

    I love learning new things, and there was a lot of information about the earth and the formation of rocks and the climate that I didn't know about previously. The book was easy to understand and was full of graphics and photos - it wasn't just large blocks of dry text. Another highlight is that the assignments were always short: 5 questions, sometimes a little more, and all the answers could be found in the book. The discussion postings were a little harder, only because you have to find an article that relates to the material in the book, but even that was fun. Another thing is that I took it online, which made it easier to read and work when I could.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the book. Definitely take the practice quizzes. Take notes, if you're into that kind of thing.
