i feel like he had such good intentions but just, ugh. the lectures are super boring, and the midterms are on material that is not found in the book, powerpoints, or lecture. so awful.

The exams are pretty tough, so make sure you get a good lab grade. I really enjoyed the class, Professor Webb has a lot of experience in his field and he has amazing stories to tell.

He is a really nice guy. His tests are hard though. There are only two midterms, a final, and lab grade.

Professor Webb was a great teacher who really does care about his students. I had him for Earth Science 100 and then Oceanography. I enjoyed both classes because Webb has so much knowledge about our environment and it 's very fun to pick his brain. He has so many good stories about his travels all over the world.

Great accent; he's from New Zealand if I remember correctly. Somewhat difficult to follow at first, but he's a very interesting lecturer. Speaks with subtle humor that he may not even notice. Attendance is not mandatory, but it's worth it to go. Never spoke to him one-on-one, but he seemly quite friendly and approachable. Exams were fair.

Webb is preplexing. He is a nice guy, has great intentions, but is a very poor communictor. I like to listen to him talk, but I would not take any more classes from him. BTW - he has a peak in Antarctica named after him!

Tests are hard and cover material you will probably never learn. Studying the lectures, labs, and notes will not help you much at all. He gives extra credit at the end of some classes but almost no one can ever make it through an entire lecture. He seems like a nice person, just not a great teacher. Just guess on tests and hope for the best.

Webb is a nice guy, but his exams test things he never taught. He likes to keep students interested so he lectures on interesting things but then tests on detailed topics not explained in class. Difficult to know what to study for. Labs are easy. I know there are better professors to take Earth Science with.

Extremely boring teacher. The way he presented his notes were very confusing. Asked very unfair questions on the exams which ended up being very hard. Best thing that happened was he left towards the end of the quarter for Antartica (very unprofessional) and Christine O'Malley taught the rest of the class. She was pretty helpful.

Such a great guy! Has great stories and a New Zealand accent. Lectures are somewhat boring but he tries to make them interesting. Study his practice tests online for tests. They seem hard but there's usually a huge curve. TAKE HIM!!

make sure you get 100% on the labs! The tests are hard unless you study his old exams which he gives out online. Reading the book helps but studying his in class notes will give you a better idea of what to focus on.

He's a funny guy and very energetic but the lectures consist of LOTS of boring movies and he tends to put up diagrams and talk on them forever. The exams are fairly easy as long as you study the questions he gives you in class. For a GEC, it's a decent class to take.

The exams were really hard, a lot of obscure questions that you really had to study the book a lot to know. But I believe there will be a huge curve so It won't be that bad. Webb is an awesome guy and teacher. He is very accomidating and willing to go the extra mile to help a person out. He moved my final so I wouldn't have 3 in one day.

Probably THE best prof I've ever had. The lectures can be boring- but hey your learning about rocks and the earth. Get to know him well and he'll go out of his way to make sure you understand. Great class and awesome prof. I would definately take it!

I wasn't interested in the class at all, but Dr. Webb was very helpful in encouraging me to do well after bombing both the midterms. He's the best professor I've ever had and I'm glad I took the class just to get to know him. Study online, read and don't fall asleep in class and you'll do fine. ;)

TO PASS THIS CLASS YOU MUST STUDY FROM HIS ONLINE PRACTICE TESTS!!! This is something that I didn't know until the very end and it could have made my grade MUCH higher! Once I finally did realize he had practice tests I saw his exams are word for word.

He really didn't care about teaching and put the most detailed questions on the exams. Go to class if you want to be able to understand the notes at all. I think he wanted people to do badly.
