Two stars

I tested out of the first two courses so I don't know how long it takes to grade homework or what is the rule is on when exactly is the due date. I probably handed in homework lesson 3 and my final exam late but it still hasn't been graded. I did all the assignments, watched all the videos, I would say this course has not help me that much or I'm just mad about my homework. Jupiter vision and Saturn struggles that is about all I got out of it.

Another great class! It was full of depth and understanding of the social planets. I came out of the class for a new awareness of each of the planets.

Wonderful experience!

This course gave me what I was hoping for and more. Excellent textual and video materials, a very well-planned schedule, great feedback from the instructors and assistants, and remarkable generosity with time. A big A+ from me!
