    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Astronomy is completely unrelated to my major, but something about which I believe that everybody should have a general and basic knowledge, and I can recommend the course on these terms alone. I knew almost nothing concerning astronomy, but came out with an incredibly more general understanding of our planet, solar system, and universe.

    Course highlights:

    It is almost difficult to tell whether this course itself is simply fascinating, or if my stellar professor made it one of the most enjoyable classes I've taken at Diablo Valley College. His fascination with the subject is extremely contagious, and I could not help but share in his sincere awe and excitement concerning our universe. I could pick highlights in any other course, but this course interested me every class and never failed to present some intriguing new concept.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance was not mandatory with my teacher, leaving your fate completely in your own hands. However, it truly is an enjoyable class to attend, at least comparatively, and becomes an instantly manageable class if you attend every class and stay relatively on top of the assignments. Homework and self-tests, like the attendance, are not mandatory for your grade, but will make or break you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Incredible class! Paul is informed about astronomy and takes time to go over everything. It's a hard subject but he makes it seem less hard.

    Course highlights:

    Constellations, asterisms, movement of planets, moon, sun and stars.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a lot for tests. Whole grade based off of tests so make sure you do well on them.
