Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because of the material. The course is focused on life outside of this earth as well as the history and development of our universe. All of the topics could seem overwhelming to students that have never focused on outer space; however, the professor made it her duty to assist the students as well as have lectures that would clarify any questions the students would have had from confusion.
The highlights in the course were the laboratory projects we completed in groups in class. Each of the labs were used to provide a "mock-life" model and demonstration to what we were learning about the planets and other things in the universe. For example, learning how planets were created; how they got craters; and how moons came into existence was all explained through labs and interesting lectures.

Advice for students:
I would advice doing the work for the class. It is easy to do well in the class as long as you pay attention in lectures and keeping up with the little work you get per week; however, it is also hard to fall behind and fail, at which point it is very hard to get yourself out of the pile of work you have to complete to catch up.
