Dr. Fiorella Terenzi has been all around the world and back. She's really knows her field and has a deep passion for it. She's a big visual person, so if you're a visual learner, take her class. Would take this class again.

AMAZING professor. Very helpful and passionate. Attendance is not mandatory but at the end of the semester she will give you extra credit depending on your attendance. Plus you NEED the notes to pass the exams. GO to her recaps and DO the summary. Easy A if you put a bit of effort.

She is the best! She makes everything super simple and easy to understand. She also showed us just how relevant astronomy is to our daily lives in terms of the chemistry/technology involved with it. Totally love her, too cool. Take her!

She's a good professor, gives reviews/study guide before exams, lets you use formula notes during exam, explains everything clearly & over all good class. Has immense amounts of extra credit, no way you won't pass. Take her :)

Didn't like the lecture honestly but the subject is interesting if you read the book. If you're very interested in the subject, I would not take this professor because theres not much learning. Like someone below me said, if you're a mature student that wants to learn, this isn't the class to take. Very easy but unclear note taking b/c her drawings

Didn't like the way she wrote her notes, she drew a lot. Pay attention & write what she says out loud cause it'll help. I would say the book is necessary to help you understand what she was trying to explain in class, once you read the book you'll be like: Oh thats what she was trying to say / teach. Doesn't explain very clearly. Overall, very easy

Fiorella is an amazing professor! She is very clear, you learn a lot of fun and interesting information and her tests always have a good study guide so you can always get a good grade on the test. She is wonderful. If you take this class, definitely take it with her! SHES AMAZING. everyone in the class seemed to think so too.

SHes a great teacher. If you attend all the lectures your practically guaranteed a passing grade. She goes through exactly what will be on the upcoming test. You don't really need the textbook if you attend all lectures swell. Take this class for an easy A!

Professor is passionate about the subject. I believe that's the way it should be. She also is interested in you understanding what she teaches, which cannot be said for the majority I've encountered thus far at the school.

Easy A if you write down all the notes. Go to class, it really helps you on tests. Don't bother studying since she lets you write a cheat sheet and doesn't check it. Her review is the test questions in order so just write that down.

Most mature students look to learn things in college. If that is you, DO NOT take this professor; if it's not you then it's an easiest A. She teaches you basic elementary astronomy that you can learn from a Netflix documentary series. A 50 minute class session would include maybe only 20 minutes of anything you haven't already heard or learned.

Great professor. She's actually pretty famous, and has been on many TV shows. Class is actually pretty interesting. Tons of extra credit opportunities. Tests are fairly easy. Don't talk excessively in her class or she'll kick you out. I didn't buy the book and received a B in the class. Overall, the easiest science class you can take.

Prof. Terenzi tries to make her lectures fun. All thats important is to try to take most of the notes and attend class when she gives out her test recaps that outlines the exact test. She lets you use a "summary" on the test. Very easy class overall.

AST 2003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Pretty cool professor & she's not always super serious. When giving a lecture she usually draws an example of what she's talking about and/or a diagram. I took her class Spring 2013. Sometimes her accent is hard to understand but if you ask a question she is happy to answer you. You don't need the textbook *so* much if you attend class regularly.

PHY2065 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

I love Professor Tirenzi and wish that I could have stayed in her class even though I withdrew from the lecture. She breaks Physics down and made it as simple as it could be for the beginner. Still wasn't easy but she made it doable. If she taught the lecture, maybe I would have gotten an A. Very generous with points and sexy to boot + nice accent.
