ESRM 401 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Second best class ever taken (behind ESRM 425). There's no amount of classroom/online experience that can compare to a hands-on education. Period. Tom is great. Although, it was difficult to keep up with him on some of the trips and I missed a little bit of info for my journal.

Good class, nice guy. His lectures could be a bit dull, but overall the class was very enjoyable and reasonably easy.

This is a pretty easy class. He's a fairly interesting lecturer, and he puts the slides/webcast online which is really helpful. My only complaint is his voice; I wasn't a fan.

ESRM201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Tom is a great professor. I've taken two of his classes (ENVIR 100 and ESRM 201) and enjoyed them both. Although not ebulliently funny, his classes are lighthearted and he has a nice sense of humor.

Great guy, cool lectures - Apparently has field trip classes for advanced students. Uses clickers for readings and class polling.
