AST 192 - STARS, GALAXIES AND THE UNIVERSE
Not a terrible class, if you go to it and do the assignments you should be fine. Go to the study sessions before a test they help alot!
Pros: Super funny. He can answer any and I mean ANY question about astronomy. Very smart.
Cons: Not going will really hurt your grade, he takes a random attendance. The test can be kind of hard.

Pros: Great teacher, fun class, gets the class involved, knows his stuff.
Cons: In class quiz-like assignments are part of your grade and he gives them out unannounced, so you might miss them if you miss class.

5*****
Pros: funny and always presents the material in an interesting way
Cons: lots of in class quizzes
He's one of the best professors I've had at UK. He presents his material in an interesting way, but his in class quizzes make going to class necessary.
