Which Physical Science Would You Take?

I need three more credits of physical science. I'm in GEO2200 right now and I'll probably end up dropping it because the professor is INSANE for a summer class. So my choices for Fall would be...
SOS2007 World of Water (my only reason against this: it's a MWF and my schedule right now is set for only TR classes)
OCE1001 Oceanography with Smith
GEO2200 Physical Geography with Binford
AST1002 Discover the Universe with Tan

I really wanted a TR physical science class because again, that's when most of my schedule falls, but I've heard SOS2007 is SO easy that I shouldn't pass it up. Any opinions? I want the easiest physical science I can possibly find. EASIEST! :-D

I also thought about CHM1025 but I know it's only 2 credits and I'd have to take a physical science lab to get my three credits, right?

    I've heard GLY 1102 - Age of Dinosaurs is pretty good and easy

    I've also heard that CHM 1025 is insanely hard for an intro, 2 credit class

    CHM1025 is not that hard, considering that you are learning the first 5-6 chapters in the book, which is the content of 1st exam in CHM2045. If you took AP Chem, then I would start with CHM2045. If the last time you took chem was sophomore year of HS, then I would consider taking CHM1025. However, if you have always been bad at science classes, then I would consider another class. I was a peer mentor (aka TA) for the class and the ones that did bad, usually had a bad science background and didnt study.
