Halpern, Jules
[ASTR 3273] High Energy Astrophysics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The worst thing about this course is that there was no textbook. For every problem set or exam preperation, my class found ourselves examining our notes for that little equation we may or may not have copied off the board. Readings mostly consisted of fascinating journal articles which were beyond the scope of the course.
The lectures are well organized but soporific. Jules is very smart but not an amazing professor. If you are interested in the topic, you should be able to overcome the difficulties and learn a lot. I really liked the course.

Workload:

7-10 challenging problem sets, hard midterm, extremely hard final, but a decent curve.
