Should attend class because the exam was mainly stuff taught during the lectures, the midterm was online and quite difficult, hard to keep up when taking notes

GG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

do not like his slideshows/form of teaching. He is very hard to follow and all over the place while giving information i do not know what is relevant and not. dont like how you must pass the final to pass the course even though the exams not worth much and found him along with the course material very boring. Also dont like the textbook, so long

GG102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Found him really boring and hard to follow. The class is overall easy if you keep up with the work. Got above a 90 on basically every assignment that he did not mark. He marks part of the midterm and I did very poorly on that.

GG 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Decent prof but if you don't have to take Geography don't take it. It's extremely boring and there are definitely better courses to take as bird courses. Average for his midterm was a 60.

GG102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He was a very hard prof to follow as he rambled about unnecessary information and never referred to the textbook. His clicker questions were ridiculous and he found it hilarious that majority of the class failed them. Frustrating class to attend, that's for sure.

X_x wish he was more understanding and that the exams were not based on a system of, if you don't pass it you fail the course. The exam is only worth 20% but if you don't pass it you fail? Do not take this course if you do well In labs and everything else but choke on exams, because his exams are too detailed.

Overall a good prof, but one thing that bugs me are clicker marks. He never used them before this semester & now he uses clicker questions that are worth too much of the final grade (20%). I missed 7 questions in one class because someone accidentally took my clicker & now I virtually no way of recovering from the blow. He's not very understanding.

I feel bad for leaving a bad rating. I'll try to be objective. Ok, truthfully I hated this course. I hated the material, the lectures, and the labs. I hated the exam.
