Okay, Prof. Ghez has got some good and bad points, but it's up to you decide which outweighs the other.

For one, she's really passionate and you can tell from the very first lecture that she really loves what she does. She's pretty good at explaining the harder concepts in astronomy and she's concerned about student learning, since she'll try to clarify any confusion.

However, she is NOT an easy instructor! For an intro to astronomy course, this class was way too difficult and had too much work (labs, weekly homeworks, 2 midterms, a cumulative final). In addition, the tests are hard since they involve mastery of the concepts as well as specific-detailed questions. On top of that, there is a lot of material to cover for one quarter, so one might feel really overwhelmed especially when finals come around.

I think if she could just slow the workload, everything would be all cool. You learn a lot, but she's definitely gonna work ya!

Professor Ghez was a spectacular teacher. She was a kind, helpful, and understanding professor. She did assign a lot of homework sometimes, and we did have reading quizzes before every lecture, but they were usually pretty fair and doable. She always made sure to remind us that her office hours were open, and she also set up weekly homework sessions so the entire class could help each other with homework
