This class is much harder than it needs to be. Teacher is terrible, doesn't really care if the student gets the material. From his modules he lacks passion, doesn't really explains what he wants until everyone messes up, by then he is upset. Not a good quality teacher.

With this being an online class, you would think the professor would be prompt with responding to e-mails. This professor does not respond to e-mail inquiries whatsoever. If he does, responses are a month late. I also thought the tests were rather difficult for a 100 level class. It is manageable to get an A if you watch the lectures and read.

The workload for the lab portion is a huge amount for a 101 class. I studied for the tests alot, and they were difficult, and I only managed to get B's.

Nowicki is very knowledgeable and is certainly teaching because he wants to, not because he needs the money. He provides many resources to help with tests, which are fairly easy if you pay attention to lectures, and allows you to correct wrong answers for extra points. He is also funny and tries to make the class fun. You don't need the book.

Scott is very knowledgeable about this subject. When he talks, one can tell he has passion for Geology, although it may be a boring subject for some. It is actually very interesting at times, and he tries his best to keep the class interested. The tests are fairly easy. Just pay attention in class, take good notes, read the book, and you'll be ok.

Nowicki is great! He's knowledgeable & very enthusiastic about the subject. His lectures are clear and straightforward albeit dull, but he provides everything you could possibly need to succeed in his class. I read the textbook & took notes (his quizzes are based on it). His exams are EASY! Don't make the mistake of not studying & failing them.

Awesome professor! Really passionate about the subject, and does a great job of teaching it. Great sense of humor. Before his class, I was an engineering major, bored and unsure if I would graduate; After taking his class, I switched my major to Geology and am doing GREAT and having FUN!

Great professor with a great laugh. Brilliant man who will talk forever about Mars and exploration. Willing to work with students for the best grade possible. If you need a Geo 101 professor he's your guy!

This professor is one of my favorites. He is a little quirky, very funny, and a great teacher. He is excellent at explaining tough concepts. He loves class participation, he wants to answer your questions. He is very knowledgeable. The pictures that he shows in the slides are usually taken by him. The book is not needed.

This professor is one of the rare ones who is so smart and passionate about their subject, that it's a joy to listen to them lecture. Geography isn't my major but I am about to graduate and this remains one of the best courses I have ever taken.

Overall good class. Pretty easy. A little too unorganized.Grading was very slow.There is a pretty good work load for a 100 level class but the grading wasn't stiff so no worries there.He gives study guides for tests. Overall I would say take the class.

Scott is an AWESOME teacher. He answers all questions asked and gives little to no homework. He makes the material fun to learn and easy to understand. He makes jokes all the time and its easy to forget that its a geology class, which are usually boring. AND he's hot in a nerdy kind of way. I would definitely take another of his classes again!

I love this class! Makes me want to change my major...lol. Dr Nowicki makes the class fun & interesting. He obviously knows the material well. Attend lecture, look over the review sheets he gives out before the exams, study that material and you should do well! I would definitely take him again! :)

I've taken about three classes with Scott now. I find him to be a fairly good instructor; though sometimes his tests can be ambiguous, if you study the material and ask him for clarification it's easy to get an A. I find it especially nice that he uses videos to reinforce material!

I have had two classes with Dr. Nowicki and he is great. Always ready to explain something you don't understand. The phreatic explosions are great!! Take a class with him and you'll learn alot.
