EAS 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

It's quite a boring class, the content is not that exciting at all and Paul does what he can with it, his tests are straight from his notes which are comprehensive so just study from those and you'll be fine. There's not really any reason to show up to class most people aren't paying attention while they are there anyway.

Dr. Myers is a great prof in a small class setting! Weekly labs were helpful but could be time-consuming. Midterm and final were similar to the types of examples done in class. He was happy to help answer questions after class/at office hours. Has a good sense of humour and is pretty easy-going. Flexible with due dates if asked. Highly recommended!

EAS 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Overall good prof. Some of his test questions are identical to the practice questions, and others are kind of poorly worded and confusing. Overall, exams aren't too bad. He seems to care that students enjoy his class and find it interesting, but it can be a little boring sometimes. He's super clear and organised, which is nice.

It takes him two weeks to mark an exam. Just ridiculous.

Good prof who actually cares about teaching - actually wants students to understand the stuff before moving along. Exams were very much like the practice he posts, but attending class will help in nailing those specific questions.

Hint, Hint I would recommend reading the textbook throughly (like a psych text). Although notes are in line with exams, if you want to hit the specific questions read the textbook. Nice guy, fair yet still difficult exams, I liked the class but thats because I did good in it.

This class is very straightforward course. You don't need to go to lectures, just study the notes and you'll do fine. I recommend this class if you need a science with no labs.

Paul was not my favorite prof. He had good notes, but the lectures were AWFUL! And unfortunately he had BAD body odour. He was obviously afraid of the class as he shouted his lectures at the back wall and stared at the ceiling. I have never heard such a failed attempt at explaining the corioliss effect... and it took him 40 min to not explain it.
