I took the Hybrid class...lecture online and lab in class. Mr. Black taught the online lecture portion. There is a weekly quiz & you are allowed 3 attempts to get the answers correct. If you read the chapter thoroughly, take the quizzes on time you should most certainly get an A.

I would advise anyone DO NOT TAKE THE CLASS because I'm taking it online and have someone else for the lab and it's horrible. He says to study the quizzes for test but the test questions do not come from the quiz or he will take the question and revise it to confuse you.

I took Mr. Black's online lecture and on campus lab for this class. He was a great, laid back teacher. There was an online quiz each week. We were allowed 3 attempts to each quiz. Every 3 weeks there was a 100 question exam. You must read & study the powerpoints! Mr. Black offered over 70 extra credit points! Not an EASY A, but definitely an A!

I took this class online with lab at campus last semester. Prof. Black is a good teacher becasue he is passionate about the subject but I found his lectures extremely boring. You really need to read to be able to keep up with this class. I would have made a better grade if I had kept up with the reading. Few people in my class made a c or better.

Took online class, on campus lab. This guy is great. Attendance is KEY to getting an A though because the stuff on the quizzes is covered ONLY during lab time. Very funny professor, he really loves what he does and will explain anything you don't understand. Offers extra credit.

Took online class with on-campus lab, great teacher. Geology is hard to follow with all the "excitement" of rocks, but he really breaks it down and give you PLENTY of opportunity to make a good grade in his class. Completely helpful, and even makes a few rock jokes lol

Great guy! Took the class online, but had to attend the labs. They were very good. He was clear and helpful. Very calm demeanor. Pay attention and do the work and you should do fine. There are many new technical terms to learn, so be ready to study.

Professor Black knows his material and is very helpful to make sure students undersand the concepts...however, I would not recommend taking this class in the summer because the material is not modified for a summer course. It is 16 weeks of work crammed into 5 weeks.

Took Online course with Lab at campus. He has online powerpoints in which you do Quizes and worksheets from. In class he goes over acitivities which enforced what you learn. I made about a C on section test, but with quiz/worksheets final grade was B. Great personality and sense of humor. Highly Recommend. You need to keep up with your work.

Great Instructor. If you have to take Geology 1401, make sure that he is your instructor. Do the workbook, study his power points, and know the book and you'll do just fine. I learned a lot from this instructor. I recommend him highly.

Mr. Black is a great teacher! The exams are a bit difficult but as long as you do your extra credit you should be able to pass.

I loved this teacher. He did a great job and he is awesome! If you do the workbooks and study, you'll pass with flying colors. Sometimes his classes can be boring but he does have a good sense of humor and gets along with everyone in his classes.

A very fun teacher that is very laid back and gives you all of the material that he teaches. It's an easy class that requires only a bit of studying, and he makes the subject very fun to learn about. I wish a lot more teachers were like him.

I took Mr. Black's Geol/Camping class last semester. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! Easy way to get the lab credit. He's VERY nice & hilarious & puts funny things in his PP's. A bit monotone but will randomly make jokes to keep you awake. I recomend taking him. Just study before tests. I never did & it showed. But doing the workbooks gave me a B+! :)
