GEOL 2407 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Black was very helpful when I took geology with him, he has a great sense of humor as well. I took him during the summer and even though the lessons got boring, if you pay attention the subject gets interesting and you actually learn something. I wouldn't have picked anyone else!

GEOL-1404 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

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.

geol1404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/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!

GEOL1403 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/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.

GEO1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.
