Please give your input about these course easy/hard, good/bad profs, grades....

1000 Classical Civilization(Classical Studies)

1022A/B Earth Rocks (Earth Science) What does A and B mean, do I have to take both, its a 0.5 course so by taking both would it be 1.0

1081 A/B Earth Science, again what's A & B

1021 F/G Environmental Issues, what's F and G, can I choose or do I have to take both

1020E Poli Science

1021E Introduction to Socilolgy

1024A/B Introduction to Stat

Which Biology is easier...1001a&1002B or 1201A&1201B?

Thank You so much:)

Okay, A/B and F/G designation means the course can be taken in EITHER semester, with A being semester 1 and B being semester 2. F/G follows the same pattern, it just means that it's also designated as an ESSAY course (you need 2.0 of these in your degree to graduate).

As for which Bio is easier...I believe 1201 corresponds to what was Bio 1222 when I was in first year. The material is similar to 1001/1002, but a bit easier I believe. However, 1001/1002 have Haffie and Maxwell, who are awesome profs and the subject material is much more interesting (I believe), so I did well. Sociology is really hard, from what I hear - I think the prof in question is Kim Luton, and I hear she's terrible. I took stats second year, but I heard the first year stats wasn't too bad at all, with a third of it being graphing. I also remember hearing classics was really easy. That's probably all the input I can give you based on these courses.

Thanks Ameltingbanana!
Every bit helps:) The biggest issue I am having is with Category B courses because I want to finish them in first year, I don't know how those are in later years.

All I can do is agree with ameltingbanana and say that Earth Rocks (aka "rocks for jocks") is apparently an easy course.
