GEOL 158 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Professor Ellis is extremely nice and his class is not difficult at all. It's actually an easy A. He gives 3 exams and a good portion of the questions are off his study guide. I definitely recommend taking his class and he always offers help during his office hours.

GEOL 158 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This prof is an example of a stereotypical college professor - long lectures, big classroom, and lots of students on exam days. He gives study guides for his exams, but you can also find the other questions on his tests online. His online quizzes are also easy, he takes the higher of two tries - and they are the same questions.

GEOL 150 LAB Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I had him for the lab. There is a quiz everyday but they are very easy. They are based on what is taught in class. No lab manual to purchase, nothing to buy for this class. Teacher explains everything clear. There are no wrong answers in the class, he will always make you sound right which helps your confidence. Excellent teacher.

you don't even have to show up to class because all of his power points and lecture notes are online via moodle. He brings in a test machine checker so that if students want to know how well they did on the tests, the answer is right there at the machine.

Very helpful professor. He's very easy to approach and he's pretty funny. If you do the all of the homework and extra credit, you cant receive anything lower than a B.

Very helpful, he always slows down his pace if students need to catch up with his powerpoints. Offers extra credit. His notes are on moodle as well and gives study guides before a test. Test are easy and curved. Awesome professor.

Very nice & knows the subject matter. I had no interest in geology until I took this class. It was very interesting. He has at least 3 big tests during the class, offers extra credit and study guides, and homework assignments are due every 2 weeks. The powerpoints are also very good. I highly recommend attending each class meeting.

really cool guy and easy class. You don't need the book just review the ppts and show up to lectures. 3 multiple choice tests, 1 extra cred, and 3 small hw assignments. His lab is easy too. One field trip, 1 midterm and quizzes, you'll do fine if you study the labs

3 Tests. Powerpoint presentations. Extra Credit opportunity. As long as you pay attention to lectures and study before tests, you will do well in class. As long as you put in a decent amount of effort in this class, you will get a good grade. He assigns reading everyday but I never read, just studied for the tests & paid attention in class &got an
