GEO 10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B+

I DONT KNOW WHY THE BAD RATINGS. HE IS A REALLY UNDERSTANDING PROFESSOR. A QUIZ BEFORE EVERY CLASS. DON'T NEED THE BOOK MUCH. EASY PAPERS. YOU NEED TO COME TO CLASS IF YOU DON'T PLAN ON READING THE BOOK. HE DOES USE POWERPOINTS A LOT. I RATHER POWER POINTS THEY ARE VERY CLEAR. GREAT PROFESSOR.

He's not the most engaging professor, but this class isn't difficult. His exams are multiple choice and they're really short. If you read the book in addition to the slides, it should be an easy A.

Geo102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I don't know why he has such a bad rating. I went to lecture, took notes, and got an A. The exams were easy, 2 midterms and a final. I studied for about 4 hours for each, He gives a pretty nice curve. Didn't need to read the book. Didn't need extra help cause it was so straightforward. He is not a bad professor, he is easy, people may just be dumb.

Material is interesting and he helps to make the class interesting but he is the least helpful prof. around. He is not helpful in regards to prep. for exams.Hard to study for the exams because the lecture notes are sometimes not similar to what is in the book so it's hard to know what will be on the exam. Don't take this class.

Avoid this class, completely agree with previous comments. Class was a waste of money, the book was a waste since it was never used, complete GPA destroyer. Seems like the guy would get a chuckle when everyone had blank faces.

He seems purposefully vague. Exams are difficult because he is not clear in class. GPA destroyer, avoid him at all costs.

GEO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall he is not a bad teacher. He likes what he teaches and wants the students to take it more seriously. His exams are so-so. The book was useless, got a higher grade on exams when I didn't use it. Study slides thoroughly. Doesn't take attendance, curves, and gave extra credit to help boost grade. Not an easy A since has obscure exam questions.

Seemed like an easy class at first but was exactly the opposite. I had to put a lot of time into the material for exams even after regularly attending the lectures. Never did so poorly in a class before. Shy away!

Easy A! No need to go to class, all power points are posted on sakai (he just reads them). Nice guy if you go see him, extra credit available & curves every exam. Definitely a GPA booster, I recommend taking him :)

This class seemed like it would be really informative but it was dry and not as easy as everyone seemed. As a person who when to every lecture I still did poor. The exams were multiple choice and confusing. Even when I felt I knew the material I still didnt do well on the exams.

He's a bright professor, just need to engage the class, the TAs do a very fine job of engaging the class, he just reads verbatim off the ppt.

ENVR102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Easily the most boring class I've ever had. He literally reads his power point slides word for word every class. If he can't be there he has his TA show videos. He's not engaging to the students, he does not offer any kind of study guides for tests and rarely gives clear answers to questions regarding what to study.
