Wilson rambles on about the topic in broad terms that makes it very difficult to understand. His power points are typed in ALL CAPS WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO COPY WHILE HE IS RAMBLING ON ABOUT GIVING YOU "TIME TO COPY THE NOTES" Also, the discussion section content does not correlate back to lecture. Have learned nothing. Not a fan.

I took this class in the Spring. There is only a midterm, group project, and a final. The class itself is not difficult, but you MUST attend to see the slides. He doesn't post them online. He grades a little hard, and getting an A is hard, but getting a B+ is easy. DO NOT buy the note packet from Notes 'n' Quotes because you won't use it.

This Spring 2009 semester I am taking Professor Wilson's Urban Geography class. He is very knowledgeable and funny. The only complaint is I wish he would post his slides for us to study from. Taking notes like before the advent of the computer does not work well for everyone.

Amusing and highly knowledgeable professor. Although the class is based on relatively few grades, it is very interesting and I would recommend it to anybody seeking to gain an insight into spatial patterns of human geography.

Prof. Wilson's Geog 104 course is a course where only a few parts (3 tests, quiz section, term paper) make up the entire grade. This can be difficult because he does not use a textbook. But overall he is friendly, amusing, and a pretty good professor. You kind of can't help but like him.

Loves to refer to himself in the third person, which gets annyoying, but you can keep yourself busy by counting how many times he does it. Pretty funny guy, lectures aren't bad, but he doesn't put notes on line, and gives no guidance whatsoever as to what will be on the tests, anything he says is fair game.

It's fun to keep track of how many times he refers to himself in the third person during one lecture.

Prof. Wilson is a very good teacher and scholar. He doesn't give busy work, and he is very flexible. The material is what matters to him.

A great teacher. David is enthusiastic about his discipline and it shows in his classroom behavior. His lectures are entertaining and enlightening and he gives very little in the way of homework. Prof Wilson does NOT give busy work, that makes him a blessing.
