This class was tough.
It's a good class. You learn quite a bit about rocks and the make-up of our planet, as well as how they affect the environment.
Highlights of the course include finding your favorite rocks and learning how the Earth was formed. The last bits of the class concentrate on the planets in our solar system, which is very cool.

Advice for students:
Set aside a LOT of time for this class. If you don't, you'll find yourself floundering due to the fact that you'll have to do a weekly, online lab that takes up a ton of your time in addition to the actual class itself.
