    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Such a great class. This class is reversed so you learn at your own pace outside of class and review homework during class. It will definitely teach you to be responsible and makes this complex class a lot easier and SO much more enjoyable!

    Course highlights:

    The field trip at the end of the class and the great friends you will make from working together in groups.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot, get organized and dive into the universe of astronomy. My biggest tip is to start sooner than later because most of the work warrants undivided attention. Do this and you will have a successful semester.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was by far the most interesting class that I took while at Mt. Sac. It open my eyes to where life comes from and our significance.

    Course highlights:

    The class spends a lot of time on the phases of the moon. This is important because thru this you can track calendar times without having a calendar.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class everyday! What we learn in class is exactly whats on the test and also important information.
