We all want to graduate with good grades. It is the reason we take up so many courses and put in the necessary work to get an A. Purdue University is an excellent place to get good grades, but you also have to be smart about it. You need to identify the easy courses around that can give you A and help build your grade effectively. We have done part of the work for you by identifying some of these easy courses and compiling them for you.

2. EAPS 105 – The Planets
This course deals with current knowledge of the physical, chemical, and geological nature of the planets and their atmospheres derived in part from data provided by manned and unmanned space probes and other techniques.
