Description: With Astronomy Demystified, you ease into the subject one simple step at a time – at your own speed. Unlike most other books on the topic, general concepts are presented first – and the details follow. In order to make the learning process as clear and simple as possible, heavy-duty math, formulas, and equations are kept at a minimum.
THIS UNIQUE, SELF-TEACHING TEXT OFFERS:
 Questions at the end of every chapter and section to reinforce learning and pinpoint your weaknesses
 A 100-question final exam for self-assessment
 Tips on how to get the most out of observational tools such as binoculars and telescopes
 Discussion of the special problems associated with observing the sky at “invisible wavelengths”
 An easy way to understand the math involved in astronomy
Simple enough for a beginner but comprehensive enough for an advanced student, Astronomy Demystified is your short cut to understanding the heavens.
