Needs descriptions!

How can one decide to download such a volume of material without any course description? Is this laziness or arrogance?

Introduction to Astrophysics -- Astronomy (ASTRON) 7B [4 units]

While I am just now starting this course. I've taken Josh's (Professor Bloom's) Astro 10P course. It was excellent. While I agree a course description would be helpful, I guess as a testimony to how good an instructor he is .. I'd take this course blindly ... That said ... a little searching on the internet and here you go ...

Introduction to Astrophysics -- Astronomy (ASTRON) 7B [4 units]
Course Format: Three hours of lecture and one hour of laboratory per week.
Prerequisites: Physics 7A-7B (7B can be concurrent) or consent of the instructor.
Credit option: Students will receive 2 units of credit for 7B after taking 10; 6 units of credit for both 7A-7B after taking 10.
Description: This is the second part of an overview of astrophysics, which begins with 7A. This course covers the Milky Way galaxy, star formation and the interstellar medium, galaxies, black holes, quasars, dark matter, the expansion of the universe and its large-scale structure, and cosmology and the Big Bang. The physics in this course includes that used in 7A (mechanics and gravitation; kinetic theory of gases; properties of radiation and radiative energy transport; quantum mechanics of photons, atoms, and electrons; and magnetic fields) and adds the special and general theories of relativity.
