An okay class to complete natural science requirement. exam 1 is easy. exam 2 is difficult and the final is okay. taking time to do labs will help your grade, but they are time consuming. TFs are very helpful in office hours for labs. Pop quizzes in lecture are easy. they are given once a week, and are just used to make sure you go to lecture.

before this class I was interested in subject, but he made it unbearable for me. Did not get the quality of teaching I expected. Definitely would be a good high school teacher. but not on this level.

GE101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Funny and tries to make a boring subject tolerable. Sometimes material can seem unclear especially material for exam 2. Exam 1 is easy and the following ones are much harder. Labs are time consuming but can help your grade if you go to office hours. Book is useless, all material comes from lectures. Professor is very approachable and helpful.

He takes random attendance so it's good to go to lectures! Labs were tedious, but weren't that bad if you put an effort. He is very funny and understandable. He cares about his students and tries his best to clarify the concepts. He always does his best. I recommend him!!!

Awesome! Makes everything simple and he actually wants you to pass his class if you put in some effort. I would recommend it if your not into science and need to fulfill a requirement.

Professor Myneni is great. Such a funny guy, very knowledgable, and very understandable even with his accent. Very much worth it to take this class for a requirement - I thought it was relatively simple and easy to understand, and I hate science.

Myneni's class is brilliant. It is easy, interesting, and you can get lots of bonus points for things as simple as attendance! Definitely take this to fulfill science requirements, or if you need that GPA boost badly.

This is a great class for your Sci requirement. Labs are a little tedious and there are lots of quizzes. But, he genuinely cares about his students and tries to make the lectures interesting. Also, I've never had a professor that is as organized and efficient as he is. This class is not ridiculously easy, but he tries very hard to make it clear.

Ranga is one of the greatest profs I have had at BU. I am a senior and needed to fill a science requirement. I'm so glad I chose GE 101!!! It's a beautiful class.

An amazing person! He is able to make a dry subject seem interesting. His lectures are far from boring and he is always able to make the whole class laugh. This course is very easy if you pay attention and do the labs. He gives (very easy) pop quizzes so attendance is necessary. He is always willing to help and is very understanding.

Excellent. Keeps your attention and is always willing to help, like if he's unsure of the answer to a question in class, he'll research it on his own time and actually get back to you--unlike some other profs. Attend class as often as possible. He notices and you could get credit for it in the end.

This guy is a godsend. If your trying to fulfill your science lab requirement TAKE THIS CLASS!!. His wit and humor add flavor to the lectures and he actually manages to make the atmosphere incredibly interesting. Definitely one of the BEST professors i've ever had at BU.

EXCELLENT TEACHER.. HE can be your real mentor. I found the ease in understanding the most difficult of the concepts in physical methods of remote sensing. The class was mathematically and physically intensive, but with his teaching style, you would not take this class. A real good professor and will help you in all regards.

Ranga is amazing! I loved him and the class isn't bad for a boring earth science that gets non-science majors their lab requirement. He is super helpful and a really nice guy overall.

Ranga is the man! Really easy way to get your natural science with lab done. The class can be kind of boring, but at least the material is talking about current global warming issues. Definitely go to class because he gives random one question quizzes and you get automatic points simply for being there. Also really funny guy and cool accent.

if you are not interested in meterology AT ALL, you are better off not taking this class. otherwise, professor is good and fair. labs never last longer than an hour, except once or twice. pay attention to your lab work and download lecture notes online.

Myneni might be the best professor at BU. He's always willing to help and is really organized in explaining the material. If you need a lab science, this is the class to take.
