Geog466 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Qiu is very helpful in clarifying the subject. Be on top of the 5 assignments to do well in class. It is 30% of grade. Midterm and finals are curved so that helps out bring your grade up. Overall, he is very caring and wants students to succeed so don't hesitate to ask questions.

GEOG160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lecture slides are so long so when it comes to the exams people just cram as much information into their heads without really learning the material. He says that his tests are not culmative but asks several questions from previous chapters. SO confusing bc we dont know what to really study. assignments are easy but tests are pretty difficult

Geog268 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His assignments are long and time consuming, but he gives you plenty of time to complete them. Most of the midterm and final questions are taken directly from his power points. The rest come from the assignments. No book was required for this class. Great professor!

GEOG469 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The class is not easy but you will learn a lot. He is not very patient this quarter and I have not idea why. It is hard to catch up with him most of the time and you relly need to work hard with other classmates

GEOG268 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Qui has skills. Took remote sensing and cartography with him in same quarter. Very detailed but in a good way. Need to have some existing skills to excel in his classes or work hard to catch up. This breaks down science and analysis and tries to pass that on to his students.

GIS, Geog 407 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Excellent instructor, very accessible whether by e-mail or in person, and is always willing to help. Only complaint is his tendency to run seminars a bit overtime. Assignments are very challenging and fun. Probably one of the best professors I've run into as far as both learning the material and actually applying it.

I learned so much from him. He really knows what he is doing but you won't realize it until you have a job working with GIS. He is the biggest asset to this dept. Helpful, will sit with you until the problem is solved. Dedicated.

great teacher but his lectures are not always clear (sometimes boring) so it makes his exams really hard. He's super helpful and will help you on assignments.
