EAR 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The guy's tests are designed to trick and confuse you probably because he knows most students take this course as a lab requirement and have no interest in earth science or geology. If you take EAR 110 do not take it with Samson

EAR110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Extremely hard class. Tests are very difficult unless you love earth science and wanna pursue it as your career. Lectures are also really boring. He's nice though and will help you if you ask.

ear101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

not the easiest science lab class, definetly need to attend lecture and paid attention and take notes, meanwhile,go back to textbook and read /review each chapter and his final are worth two midterm so even if you do well on the midterm if you dont study for the final you can fail this class too. don't rely on his midterm for the final know everyth

Very difficult if your not interested. Suggest taking a different 101 course unless you love inanimate objects. He purposefully makes each question hard on the test. Nice guy, just a rough class.

While the tests are very challenging, going to class and putting in the study time will certainly pay off. Lectures are very interesting even for non science majors. He explains concepts very well
