Lectures are sent out at start of semester, all hw is in MasteringPhys, tests are super easy and right off the study guides. He's really helpful if you need it, lectures are dry but he tries to make them interesting. Definitely worth taking

the lectures are all online, and the homework is online too, he is a nice professor, and you do not have to show up to class only on test days

All around great teacher! He is interested in his students progress and tries his best to make the class interesting. The class is not that hard, but you learn a lot. This is the guy to take if you are going to take astronomy.

Don't buy the book,his power point slides cover every question on exams and homeworks,never bought the book,just went over his powerpoints and got a B+. He does not curve grades,he gives you an extra credit up to 10 points which equals a whole letter grade. Easy class,a really nice professor.Very interested taking his other classes.

Professor Pinter is the best teacher I've had at CSUSM! Take it from someone who is horrible at math and science. His homework assignments are online and you always have at least a week to do each section. There are 3 quizzes (he calls them midterms) and a final. I am actually interested in astro physics now! Defs gunna take his ASTR 342 class :-)

Professor Pinter is one of the best professors at CSUSM! Show up to class and take good notes. If you need help don't be afraid to approach him, he's very friendly and helpful.

The course seems extremely easy, and it is as long as you do the homework and study for the exams. Provides several extra credit opportunities for up to one full letter grade (10%) and is available at almost any time for individual help or even for questions outside the scope fo the class. Excellent professor.

Takes a very difficult subject and makes it easy. If you read the book, attend, and take notes (write them even though you can download them) you will get at the lowest a B. Very knowledgeable and genuinely interested and enthusiastic about subject.

Awesome professor! I was dreading this class more than any other this semester, and it turned out being my favorite one! Just go to class, write some notes and do the homework and you will be fine, take it from someone who usually hates science classes. One of my favorite professors/classes at CSUSM so far.

I recommend taking this class. His enthusiasm adds to the already fascinating aspects of astronomy. I think that every teacher should turn out the lights during class and play atmospheric music in the background like he does. I found that it relaxed me and aided in the learning process.

Great teacher. very enthusiastic about what he is teaching. Lectures from powerpoints, tests are not as bad as you would think. Can have double sided notesheet for each test, so basically open notes. Only downside is that the final is 40% of your grade. So even with an A in the class-do bad on the final and your down to a C.

What an awesome teacher! If you need to fulfill your UDGE, definitely take Astronomy with Pinter. Lectures are really interesting and clear, weekly homework assignments are easy and fun, and tests are a breeze if you have an ounce of intelligence (he lets you bring a double sided cheat sheet for each test, three for the final). GREAT PROFESSOR!

He's really nice. For the most part you're teaching each other after he does a little introduction & the lab homework can be heavy. If you've taken physics before his part of the class is very basic, but if you haven't - find someone who knows it & work together. He's completely helpful if you ask & will push back the hmwk dates sometimes :)

He really tries to work with you if you don't understand the material. He'll even stay after class for an hour and a half if you need to (a friend and I did). He's really nice. The lectures are kinda dry, but find someone who understands that material and study with them for the midterm and final...it makes a difference!
