    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy astronomy or just outer space, he's a great professor to talk to and ask burning questions about space or just about something simple like the Moon, etc.

    Course highlights:

    More about the outer space I didn't even know. I only know so much that entering into this class taught me more about what I didn't know and what I already knew.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your very best, and even if you don't know anything about outer space, like me, don't worry. Ask questions, even if it's something simple. Just have confidence in yourself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very interesting class, Covered relevant information without getting too tedious with details. I really enjoyed this class and strongly recommend enrolling in it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many basic Ideas and concepts that seemed obvious but I didn't really know. I know have a thorough understanding of the general information covered in the class, most of which was related to our Solar System.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't miss class and pay attention during lectures. Exams were much easier when all I had to do right before them was review my notes and skim the textbook because I already knew most of the information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any student who enjoys a hands-on approach to learning. There were many interesting in-class labs throughout the semester, as well as fascinating outside labs which were conducted at our observatory.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing about this course was visiting the observatory to complete the lab assignments we were given. I was able to gain a more in-depth understanding and appreciation of space, and the composition of stars and other astronomical objects.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you absolutely must complete the lab assignments thoroughly, and turn them in on time. They are worth around half the grade in the course. As far as studying goes, expect the exams to be difficult. Read the material, and make sure you understand everything to the best of your ability. The exams do tend to go more in-depth than most initially expect them to.
