WX364 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is extremely easy. The subject matter is kinda boring and it doesn't help that Tomkins drones on and on but, it's not that bad. The bonus for the class is that there is no scantron final. The last thing done in the class is an International WX briefing and it's really easy.

Tomkins is awesome. He is a Christian man who I would definitely take again and recommend. Stop by his office, throw back some free mm's, and let him amaze you at how helpful he is.

tomkins is cool, he's even cooler if you're a girl i've noticed. helpful for tests, and homeworks if you ask. just make sure you hit the review sheet before the test, and you'll do fine.

Good teacher. He isnt a huge nerd like the rest of the weather dorks. The class was kinda easy though 'cause I already knew everything. If you can, take him as a weather teacher

WX 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

A.K.A. Captin America (for his leather jacket w/ the gigantic American flag on the back) I've come to the conclusion that he just hates all pilots... Like one kid from each class gets a grade worth while, usually the suck ups... & he tells the same damn stories over and over...

Very good teacher, however the material in WX201 is hard, but if you try hard and ask him questions in his office you'll get an A. He explains the material in his office much better than in class (Good 1 on 1). He cares a lot for the students and loves the material. GREAT TEACHER!!!!

Did a very poor job teaching this class to a bunch of pilots. He did not even know how to read a TAF! This teacher tries his best to not give you the A. He just is a poor teacher.

Great instructor. Sometimes his lectures would get a bit boring but every once in a while he'd throw a horrible pun out there that kinda shocks you back into reality. I really enjoyed his class and he will help almost anyone with almost anything.

Hard to stay-awake lectures, even with the coffee in class. Watch out, he's a "weatherman" and will tell you so.
