He is a nice man. He has a strong accent so its hard to understand and astronomy isn't exactly the easiest class to study for, however he gives a lot of extra credit. I only passed one out of 4-5 test therefore i thought i as going to fail. But i did all the extra credit and managed to get a B.

Super unclear, kind of rude, seems really intelligent just not very good at conveying what he knows. I learned more in my lab class to be honest.

Dr. Hasbun is a whiz at physics, but extremely difficult to follow for freshman astronomy. He flies through lectures not allowing enough time to take adequate notes and then may or may not post the slides online. Very difficult class to pass, even with the curves and XC. I studied, did all HW and still was lost on most of the tests.

Honestly, this class is a "self teach" class. He curves EVERY test at least 15 points and I went from a D to a C before the final. I received an A for the class so I would recommended the class. He assigns extra credit just about every class. Have a good attendance record, DO the extra credit, & you'll receive an easy A.

Not a hard professor but not an easy one either. Only Tests and Quizzes but TONS of extra credit that I will help you in the long run. Attendance is not mandatory but It will help your grade. Also Study the online content. Every tests has questions from the last test on it and it all goes online.

His class takes a lot of studying. There are no assignments except quizzes and tests. However, he assigns a ton of extra credit that helps a lot! The class is really interesting and you will actually learn.

His test were incredibly hard and lectures will put you to sleep. I failed almost every test and made a B only because of extra credit (which he does give a lot of). Overall hard class i have heard other astronomy teachers were a lot easier!!

Not that great of a professor. I failed every test except one but with extra credit i still made a B. He did do some pretty amusing things in class but his tests were hard. Be prepared to spend a lot of time with your book his notes aren't very helpful!

I don't understand all the negative reviews. Pleasant experience. The course is somewhat difficult but nothing studying won't fix. Funny and does inclass visuals that usually turn out to be funny. Pretty clear on what he wants. TONS of extra credit. If you're willing to learn, take Hasbun.

He is by far the worst teacher you will ever get. He is rude and wont help you. His tests are so hard that you fail everytime. He gives extra credit but won't tell you for how much. When you ask him for help you wont get it because he is so rude and mean!

Worst class I have taken, by far the most unhelpful professor I have had. I would read the chapters from the book for days before each test and still failed each test. I took astronomy so I wouldn't have to take a 'traditional' science, now I wish that I had taken chemistry or physics.

He is a really laid back teacher. gives tons of extra credit to off set the failed quizzes. If you decide not to attend class make sure you read the book because most test questions come from there.DO NOT have your cell phone out during a test because he will automatically fail you. come to class even if u go to sleep.

He is extremely disrespectful to the students, tries to be funny, does not teach at all he only reads the slides and he even reads them wrong. He gives a lot of extra credit but only to make it somewhat fair. I went to his office to see what I needed to do, and he was very rude to me. Bad professor!Do not take his class, I wish I had taken another.

He is wonderful. Yes, he covers a lot, but if you take notes and attend class you should do fine. He offers a ton of extra credit and has a great sense of humor. He is one of the few professors that i've had that loves teaching. That's important to me.

Very hard teacher but hands out extra credit like crazy! I failed every test after hours of studying but with all the extra credit I turned in, I still made a C. He knows what he's talking about but if you try to ask for help, he tends to get off subject or sometimes respond rudely.

Professor Hasbun has a pretty thick accent which makes it hard to understand him sometimes. He gives a lot of extra credit and high curves on his tests. He is also pretty funny. For an astronomy class, there is very little star studying. I would not recommend taking this class.

TERRIBLE! His lectures are confusing and he makes a lot of mistakes. If you try to ask a question in class or during office hours it probably won't be answered. He's a nice guy but should not be teaching.
