prof jura is a nice guy, but he should be teaching advanced physics not astro. he's a little hard to follow because he mumbles a lot and explains everything in terms of physics. i didn't have any physics background so i was confused a lot. he does post his lectures and sample tests online, so i ended up doing fine. there are 2 midterms and a final that are 90% from online notes and tests so its a pretty chill class to take pass/no pass.
very hard to follow in lecture, tends to digress and mumble. organization of class is not great and it is sometimes hard to draw broad themes and concepts that make sense out of the class. BUT exams are based almost entirely on lecture, so its easy to miss something and then get screwed on the test. that said, he gives study guides and grading can work to your advantage if you do invest extra time to know the answers to each of the study questions. make sure you go and talk to your TA frequently and ask questions. interrupt prof jura in class if he is going too fast and you get lost.
