    That was my first choice, sadly this semester it conflicts with a required class for my major (BIO 314). How are agronomy 114(agronomy) and 154(soil science)?

    Both 114 and 154 are mostly self taught. You have to take weekly quizzes outside of lecture time. If you put in the time each week and study then they are easy. If you want to slack off then your grade will certainly show it. I was a TA for Agron 114 for 4 semesters in graduate school.

    Re: Easy Ag Class

    For 114 you cover a chapter each week (again on your own time) and have to pass a quiz over the material. The quizzes are pass/fail and passing is 70%. Technically you can take and pass all the quizzes and fail the regular hour exams and still get a C. All grades above that are determined by your scores on the hour exams. Lecture only meets one day a week (recitation essentially).

    Thanks for the info. I really need an easy class because my schedule is brutal other than this one. Are they 100 level because they are easy or more because they are the introductory ag classes? If you know what I mean.

    100 level because they are intro not because they are easy. Don't get me wrong the material is easy but the time factor usually overrides that. People don't like having to read the textbook and then come take quizzes.
