AST 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Really good teacher. He's helpful and will try to make you understand the material the best he can. He doesn't require a textbook because he would rather you actually learn, instead of memorizing the book, and forgetting everything when class is over. He's very hands on with his teaching, just show up and do what you're supposed to and you'll pass.

Ast110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class has dropped my GPA. My GPA was 3.6. I prefer more traditional way of teaching. My friend took another astronomy professor and got an A very easy. Just stay away from this one, because he wants you to guess things and never tells you answers!!!! I tried to look up stuff online after class and some of the stuff was still left unclear.

AST110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He teaches very few, very simple concepts throughout the semester. Here is where one recognizes his brilliance: he knows that his students won't remember anything that they are forced to memorize. It is better to teach a few things that they will remember forever. This method worked: I received an A. No t/book, no h/work. Extremely nice man.

This professor is the best.I dont like science until I took his class. If you want an A take him and you will pass for sure. Hint, sit with smart people. He never answers questions but the trick is that if he answers your question with a question the your question is wrong. If he just stays quiet and nod then your answer is right lol.

He makes you think that if you do A work he will give you an A but he does'nt. If you want a very low gpa then take him. But if you want someone who is going to teach you take another professor where you can get a A for doing the work. His test are confusing. He doesn't give review sheets.

Great teacher, really interesting classes with fascinating discussions. High level of class participation. No memorization?you have to figure out things for yourself. Virtually no homework. There is a strong correlation between attendance and grade. This is a really valuable course and I loved Barry. He's cute and funny. Highly recommended.

This professor is fabulous, he really makes the class fun, and he makes sure you understand the material before moving on, there are only 5 exams, but they're really easy, and the labs are so much fun, you learn a lot and have fun. He's the best! I got an A in his class.
