  • Class rating 3/5
    Super easy class. Other people complained about the exams, but I got As easily without studying. Also, there is a ton of extra credit offered in discussion. You really just have to show up to discussion and it's easy to get an A. ...Continue reading

    I would recommend taking this class just not by this professor. Tests are impossible The class was very interesting but she didn't explain anything. This is a class you have to teach your self. She is really rude sometimes and treats you like your an idiot. ...Continue reading

    I've fallen asleep several times. If you take the practice tests 20+ times you'll be fine. Would not recommend. ...Continue reading

    I would not recommend taking his class. I emailed him numerous times and never got a response. His lectures are super boring but he is funny to listen to because he's so passionate about the class. He requires a text book and I never once opened it. ...Continue reading

    Ed is a cool prof. Just follow the syllabus and get points, you'll get an A. His lectures are interesting, and if you attend most of the lecture, you'll get a B for sure. 3 midterm exams, drop the lowest, multiples choices. TAs are helpful, too. ...Continue reading

    Astronomy with Kortenkamp was fun. You chose how your grade is weighted. You can do homework or quizzes. It is a strait forward class that requires some work. Especially if you do the sun project. A really funny guy, lectures are pretty interesting. Solid 170 get ed, but if you're not into space don't take it. ...Continue reading

    Hands down the hardest class I've ever taken. This class involves a lot of math and physics so unless you're good at that, don't take this class. 5 midterms total and a final exam, 50% of your grade is top 2 midterms, 50% final exam grade. Has a safety net on final exam, can't get lower than the average of your 5 midterms. Hard to pass midterms. ...Continue reading

    This professor is extremely difficult. I came into the class this year very interested, but the class moves so fast and the exams are very difficult. The only grades are 5 homeowork assignments, 3 high difficulty midterms and the final. ...Continue reading

    Prof Greenburg is a really tough grader, and some of the material is as boring as watching paint dry, but the class can be fun and engaging. He clearly has a great mind, and gets his points across well. You actually have to read and come to class, but its manageable. Take it if you wan't to really engage your mind and learn something new. ...Continue reading

    Took the 170 5 week online nutrition class. Everyone told me how easy it was, I've never had so many -.5 of a point taken off. Pickiest grader I've ever had. Many instructions weren't clear and all the tests had the most random questions. I had an 89 and ended with a B, she refused to push my grade up. Would not recommend. Not an easy A at all. ...Continue reading

    My god did this class blow. I was doing freaking astophysics on the homework and it didn't even apply to the tests at all. The lectures are so unclear even though the professor is a funny dude who tries to make the bearable. Took this as a senior looking for an easy but interesting elective and boy, did I make a mistake. ...Continue reading
