Took this class on-line thinking it would be easy... It's not bad if you don't wait till the last minute, but it's alot of work and the test doesn't really come from the assignments... Super boring subject. Doesn't allow you to re-submit.

Oh my goodness. Do not take this guy online. As stated below, the assignments are subjected to his opinion, and usually his opinion is BS. This was the hardest class of my college career thus far. Even when I tried to contact him, it would take weeks for a crap response. STAY AWAY.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR! His class average was high 60's and the average on MOST tests was approx 69%. He DOES NOT grade on a curve and NEVER gives a straight answer to questions. Most answers for the "open book" tests CAN NOT be found in the textbook. Assignments take hours,and all are subject to his opinion which differ from facts in the book!

Worst professor I have ever had. I took the class onine and it was very difficult. He was not helpful at all, every question I asked was never answered straight forward. Even though everything was open book, there were things I could not find any where. I would not recommend this professor to anyone.

This is THE hardest online class I've taken. Even though the tests were open book, there were a lot of answers I couldn't find anywhere in the book. According to class stats, I earned above average grades on homework and extra credit and average on tests and still got a C in the class. Heartbreaking!

This professor is very responsive and involved. The homework assignments are reasonable but you have to keep up. The tests are pretty difficult. I only managed to get in the high 70's and am an A student. But, I took advantage of the extra credit and put effort in the homework and came out with an A! In a science class?! Who knew?!

One of the nicest people ever. He loves the subject and keeps you the whole time but test are open book and sometimes take home. He has a great curve, if you don't pass it can't be blamed on him. Great teacher must take!!!!

He is the nicest guy. He is very smart and really knows his stuff. If you need help he is always willing to make time for you. I wish I could take him again.

I really liked his class. The tests were sometimes difficult. But he curved them because he knows that everyone is not an astronomy whiz. It's too bad he's not teaching at SFCC anymore.

I loved him. He is the nicest guy. His tests are difficult but he grades on a curve. He really knows and loves what he is talking about. Although his class can be a bit boring at times.. he makes jokes to keep you interested.

I don't know if he's changed since the last review, but I took his Lab in Fall 2004 and he was great. His lecture doesn't do much, but he's willing to talk with you until you come up with the answer. We were able to do "groups" on almost every assignment, and there were lots of extra credit points. I think everybody made an A.

Very nice guy,but a horrible teacher.Class is so boring, it's hell. Tests are extremely difficult.If he didn't curve them so much,everyone would fail.Studying for tests is pointless.Do yourself a favor and take Bio for your science credits.AST sounds cool,but it really sucks.

This class is extremely difficult, doen't teach what is on the tests. Only good thing is that quizzes are extra credit and tests are curved, but it is still hard to get a good grade.

He is a nice person, but a horrible teacher. Expect to learn the material yourself because in class he just goes over the power point presentation, which are mostly pictures. Then, his tests are very hard and not related to what we covered in class. He does curve the tests, so that helps.

He does a big curve on every test because if he didn't no one would pass them. No need to study because the questions are nothing that he goes over. Nice teacher and really not stressful but hard tests. Which I think is very unfair.

She is a very nice person but a bad teacher. Only take him if you are really good at the natural sciences.
