I AM SELLING THE TEXTBOOK FOR $20 (BOUGHT USED FOR $60 ON AMAZON W/ HIGHLIGHTING). CONTACT ME BY EMAIL IF INTERESTED: [email protected]

His tests are VERY detailed oriented. It is neccessary to attend lecture because his slides have little to no wording, only pictures.

This class covers everything you need to know about our solar system and its planets.
Definitely an easy GE. Dr. Young is incredibly knowledgable about the content. His lectures are sometimes hard to follow, but the midterm and final are both very comprehensive and based off of very general concepts. I loved how personable and available Dr. Young made himself to his students. He genuinely cares that his students learn the material. Great class

Professor Young is so passionate about astronomy and it definitely shows. His lectures are very interesting- he presents lots of pictures which really helped me to remember certain concepts.
Format of grading is:
35% final 35% midterm 30% discussion/partcipation (basically an A+ if you show up)
Dr. Young is very approachable and is willing to offer help whenever needed. Visit his office hours!!!! Also His class is relatively small (80 students), so it felt more intimate as opposed to some of the large astronomy lectures.
Very interesting and easy GE. 10/10 would recommend.
