ASTRO001 Web Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Thought this would be a easy gened science course, but I have never been more wrong. There is way too much material for each exam and the exams are IMPOSSIBLE. I did well on the first, but they seemed to only get progressively harder. DO NOT take this class

ASTRO001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took the online version of the class. You need to work on your own pace. It is not that hard most of the questions come from the lecture material and review test. If you have a little interest to Astronomy you will enjoy the class. She responds your e-mails like in one hour. Not so much homework just 2 discussion posts.

ASTRO001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very difficult online class. Don't take this as a science gen ed. It is very difficult and requires an excessive amount of studying considering it's a gen ed.

ASTRO001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mind-numbingly easy class. The comic book-like way the material is covered is annoying, and she tries to get you to memorize a couple constellations for each exam, but those are my only complaints.

Most difficult online course I've ever taken. And the final is cumulative, which is as horrendous as it sounds. Do NOT take this.

Web section. Definitely not easy but 20% is participation which you get by default anyway. She also drops the lowest exam grade. If you don't pass, you didn't try.

This class is poorly designed. Yes, it is interesting that it is a story, but the story is dumb and seems very simple, but then the tests are nearly impossible. If you are considering taking astronomy, I would take it in a classroom. It seems like she took a lot of time to make this, but it backfired.
