Previously I had no formal academic work in astronomy, although I have been an amateur astronomer for over 10 years. I did take some physics in college - over 50 years ago. This class was more rigorous than I expected and I learned much more than I expected. I found the quantitative aspects amazing. Ronen Plesser and the TA's were always helpful and got me through the problem sets, which were used to expand on the subjects covered in the lectures. I feel like I knocked a couple of pounds of rust out of my brain! This was my first on- line course, so I can't compare it to others.
