Do not take this course under any circumstances! This prof. is the worst and the material is very difficult. He gives mid year exam/final study guides, but they are useless because the exam questions don't come from the study guides. Worst prof. ever! I don't think he even curves. There are definitely easier science courses; avoid at all cost.

Yep, things have changed and the class is now much difficulter than before. Yair is chill but the class will be very dull if you're not interested in the subject. Do the problem sets, extra credit and mid year exam/final reviews (which is a great amount of work) you should get a B/B+. There are easier science courses out there, but this one was alright.

Needed to take one more science course and absolutely disliked this one. Dry and BORING subject to begin with, difficult homework problem sets and the mid year exam was also difficult (avg score was 64). Final was okay. Gave extra credit and I think curved final grades to make up for the extreme difficulty. Definitely not an simple A but doable B/B+.

Yair is a pretty great lecturer and very impartial grader. Most of these posts are right on so definitely take him if you need but this is not an simple A by any stretch. He also did things differently this past semester due to the reviews he read at this site so no point in telling you more detail since he may just shake things up again 8)

Yair is friendly and will do anything so you will get a great grade in this class. Gota C on the mid year exam and a B on the final but still got an A in the class. Take Yair!!

Yair is great. His accent is keeps you entertained and he's real mysterious. He actually wants you to pass and he'll do all he can to make it happen. The Mid-Term was pretty difficult, but he'll do all he can to make up for it and make sure you get a great grade.

water planet- yair is hilarious. he makes the most amusing jokes. his mid year exam was difficult, but the final was exactly what was on the review sheet. 1 prob set and 10 points extra credit for a paper. simple B, even an A.

I don't know how people can say this course sucks... It is so simple it is ridiculous. The guys accent is priceless and it is even better when you come to class baked as a cake. I spent more time waiting in line to hand the mid year exam in than i did taking that (thanks to blowin aderol) Listen Yair is a great guy, and has a sense of humor. Easy B I thin

This is certainly not a ROCKS FOR JOCKS class but it is impartial. Don't take it if you want an simple A, because you have to study a little bit at least. The mid year exam and final were indeed difficult but his curve makes up for it. The class had a bunch of lazy people who expected to cruise by but failed or did badly. Anyone actually who tried got an A.

OHH, the water planet..Yair is chill but the class sucks. courses are slides which are put online. attending lectues are useless bc he literally just reads the words from the slides out loud. just a mid year exam, final and one problem set. both exams where difficult as hell. passed mid year exam because of 20 point curve, failed final. got C+ in the class. enjoy

Nicest Prof ever!!! Midterm and Final are pretty difficult but he is so friendly and his curve is ridiculous. The class itself is dull as heck but wdislikever, use it to fulfill some GE requirements.

Oh, Yair. The mid year exam included nothing from the study guide, and the final had everything. There is no point in going to class because everyone falls asleep anyway, but buy the book. Almost 70 percent of the material comes from it, the other 30 from courses [which are online]. If it weren't for his generous curves, I doubt anyone would've passed..

every lecture is online, but paying attention is a waste of time anyway because he will give you a great study guide for the mid year exam and final (be there for those review courses!) Yair knows so much that it's ridiculous.. but he totally doesnt expect you to learn that crap. p.s. dont believe him: he doesn't take attendance

I <3 YAIR ROSENTHAL. If I really liked geophysical science, I would probably consider him to be an outstanding lecturer. However, since I have little interest in it, I can only say that he's been able to keep me from dozing off :) He's seriously the cuexam guy in the world, with his little jokes and snarky side comments. Great guy, take the class.
