Geol 630 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Scott is one of the best professors out there. He makes everything very clear in his lectures. If you are only "kinda ok" with computers then you will struggle because labs are computer heavy and he forces you to think about what you are doing. If you are the type that can figure out new software pretty fast then you will be fine.

GEOL 430 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

I love Scott; he is so funny and knowledgeable. I did not understand his lectures very well, but he was more than willing to help outside of class time and he was very generous when grading assignments. I would definitely take his class again!

GEOL 430 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

This class will make you a better scientist and problem-solver. There ends up being a lot of material not entirely covered and/or not tested. Be ready for plans/schedules to change as there is a lot to cover and Scott tends to change things often. The work is hard, but it's really interesting stuff. He's a wealth of knowledge, so get to know him.

His GIS class was definitely challenging with a lots of assignment and lab work, but he is always available to help you. In the end,I learned so much and I was glad that I took this class with him.

Dr. Nowicki is an engaging instructor who always seems to make things as interesting as possible while teaching. The exams are difficult, but you look back after the course and realize how much you have learned. An excellent course and a great instructor.

GEOL630 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Scott is a dedicated teacher who goes out of his way to help his students and engage them with the material. Not an easy A- be prepared to earn it as Scott's tests require real effort. nonetheless, after this class, I feel prepared to use GIS in my research, and create quality maps for personal and professional use. I highly recommend this class.

Dr. Nowicki is knowledgeable with GIS, a very helpful professor, and a great guy to know. I learned more than just GIS from him. He exposed his students to remote sensing, working on GIS team projects, and we learned to use structure from motion software. I would rate Dr. Nowicki no less than an A+++.

GEO 430 GIS Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

The course GIS 430 was challenging. The instructor was always available for questions. The workload was normal for a 400 level class. Instructor responded to emails quickly and the lecture style is easily understandable.

The important thing about this class is that Scott is completely available to help you with outside projects. I've never had a teacher so willing to put aside his time. The class tends to go off topic, not all lectures are helpful, 30% about google. But the lab really teaches you GIS, and from this class I know a lot more about GIS.
