This class is definitely amazing. You get to learn about whether there is life in the universe and you explore different areas like within our solar system and beyond. Although the material is interesting, the professor's lectures are a bit dry.

Homework is weekly assignments. These should be grade buffers. However I was the other way around. I messed up homework (missed 1-3 questions each netting a B+ homework average) but got high A's on my tests, but see below for general advice for others to get an A in this class.

Grading breakdown of the class:
30% homework
30% midterm
40% final

Homework: try to get close to a 100% because it serves as a buffer to the exam scores.

Midterm/Final: Exams average a B- median C/C+ mean. They are by no means easy. The exam consists of multiple choice, short answer, and true/false/plausible/implausible hypothetical questions. Those are generally the toughest, as you need to apply what you learned to determine whether the hypothetical statement is reasonable or not in the future. Do look over the slides because most content comes from the slides. However, do skim/read the textbook as it helps you piece together the concepts. I can certainly say I do very well in the exams because of using the textbook while looking over the slides. Also, do the sample midterm/final posted or take the sample midterm/final during the review session. Some concepts may be tricky but the professor and TAs can help you clarify and keep you on the right track.

Note: the consensus is this GE is on the more difficult side, but if you put in some work and not miss points here and there, an A is definitely possible.
