No you fools take astronomy which is pcs 181. It is the most ridiculously easy and fun class you will ever have. No final exam, a super short essay that ull get a 90 on for sure, no book to buy, and 2 midterms that if u study 45 minutes for u will be set.

For table B if your french is decent take mid level french classes with Stephen Veron. Every class is a joke and he litterally goofs around non stop. no homework at all, take a couple notes, write an exam on some verbs, do a dictation or 2, and your set.

Both classes like i said, have NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO homework at all. Actually french class has a quick project in groups but u can do it in a day and then your set for the term.
Do you have any idea what Kinga Zawada is like? I have him/her for next semester, and am thinking of whether or not to transfer to Stephane Veron's class instead.

Pysch courses are the easiest. All the tests/exams are multiple choice. There's an essay too. The most interesting course so far would have to be Psychology of Human Sexuality, with Dr Oren Amitay. You learn a lot of interesting things. :)

I also took GEO312 (Viva Las Vegas). It was pretty easy, though I told the prof (Bardecki) that it would've been nice to see more comparisons of Vegas and Toronto.

Caribbean Studies (with Terry) was pretty easy too.

I'm planning on taking ECN 440 next semester, I heard part of your mark is based on a stock marketing game =)...I never took econ in high school so this should be interesting...
This semester I took SOC 103 with Kelly Train, shes a great prof, the course is good if you're interested, the final exam (which was the Friday that just passed) was a little difficult but only because I'm not into this stuff...I just need a lower liberal and I didn't know what to take =D
Maybe I'll see you in ecn 440 =D

Hi,

I need suggestions on what lower level liberal studies (Table A) course to take for the winter term.

I didn't really like the first one I took -_-. I want an easy course, but also one that I will learn something (useful) in lol, anyone have any suggestions?

Someone suggested I take ECN 440, anyone here taken it before? Is it hard or worth taking?

Thanks.
Depends on what you like. I'm 4th year at ryerson, I can tell you whats easy.
History of Science and Technology I,II -> If you like science and stuff. Appearing during lectures important.
Perspectives in Psychology - PSY105 -> Introduction psychology course. Multiple choice midterm, essay, multiple choice exam. Attendance not necessary, read the textbook you'll be fine.
GEO--- -> Any geo course is easy and probably interesting.

I've never heard of him but just switch to Veron if you can. You will not regret it at all he's great.

Take SOC 202 Popular Culture with Prof. Muzzatti !!

Midterm: M/C (two easy Q's irrelevant to the material that were bonus marks)
Essay: not hard at all as long as you go to tutorials & listen to lectures
Final Exam: M/C (once again two bonus marks)

However, if you want to get an A in this course (like I did), you need to actually do all of the readings.

Muzzatti's a really interesting prof; the other pop culture prof I heard had much harder exams.

Hmmm Attendance not necessary eh ? lol ... every liberal is conflicting with me having a 3 day schedule, they all seem to fall on thursday/friday... any lower liberals that fall within monday/tues/wens only ?

So, how is course selection going for you guys?

I was planning to take ECN 440 and PCS 181, but they both occur at the same time, and so does one of my required course >_< dammit.

Guess I'll have to start looking for some other courses to take, fast. lol

I don't understand something. When I did course intention last March I enrolled myself into PCS181 - Intro to Astronomy. But just last week when they generated a timetable PCS181 wasn't on my timetable and when I do a class search both classes taught by one prof is full by 90 students each.

I though when you do course intentions you are going to get the classes you are in since your are pre-enrolled? Did this ever happened to any of you guys?

Now I am left with no liberal and all the good ones are gone even intro spanish! :mad:

i took Geo110 (physical geography) this year, by far the easiest course. 1 group assignment (presentation), 1 mid term and 1 final. very easy. The prof actually gave us the first 5 questions to the midterm, and it was 30MC.. and he accidentally put one of the questions that were given prior to the midterm on the last question, so walking into the mid term you have 6/30 (20%) unless your a complete idiot. I had friends who took Astronomy and pop culture, and it sounds like they have WAY more work to do than me.

take this course!!!
