Tufts University: Esther Zirbel - Astronomy - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Esther Zirbel | AST021 - GALAXIES & THE UNIVERSE| Astronomy2004-04-22

Professor Zirbel is very knowledgeable and has a good grasp of astronomy. However, I felt the class could have been better structured. We were given four books to purchase, and most overlapped each other in content. This made the reading assignments excessively long, and simply redundant at times. In addition, all of the lectures were on powerpoint, which were easily accessed from the internet, meaning that it was never a big deal to skip class regularly. Finally, this is a class where you never need to use an equation. All of the tests were essay and short answer based. On a positive note, she offers many extra credit assignments.

The workload was pretty normal for an average Tufts class.
