I took his 3 hour night class and the class day went as follows... Class starts with 2 and a half hours of lecture and note taking, followed by a quiz on material from 1-2 weeks previous, without a description of what material you will be tested on. I recommend a different teacher if available....

He is very smart and knows English VERY well! The tests are the same as the quizzes, and the quizzes are open book! His grading scale is very different and not consistent!!!

Latin America class is one of his favorite to teach and you can really tell. He is helpful and gives you lots of notes, but did need the textbook to prepare for some quiz's. Tests are easy if you save quiz answers. I learned a lot.

geog425 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This was an enjoyable class and I learned a lot. Teacher does have an accent but he was easy to understand after the first day. He gives you all the notes, so didn't need a textbook. He gives regular quiz's but save those answers as they are on the test, therefore class will be an easy A if you attend and put slight effort. Great teacher.

Ok teacher. Over a 3 hour class, his awful jokes get really annoying. Don't expect to learn anything from this class. Quizzes are super easy. Copies and pastes the quiz questions to make the tests.

Hilarious guy. I've never laughed so much. Read the book and take notes in class... the quizzes are easy if you do that. He explains things thoroughly and clarifies when needed. He knows so much! A joy to learn from.

I really enjoyed coming and listening to lopez! He is a funny guy and keeps the class interesting by his jokes. If you dont enjoy learning material by powerpoint, dont take this class. The whole period is powerpoints and him talking. This was an easy general.

Prof. Lopez keeps learning interesting and fun. He will make you laugh alot. However, gives a lot of quizzes. If you go to class & spend a little time studying you will be able to pass his intro class.

Read on here before taking the class that its an easy A. Im a bright person and thats def. not the case here. I had to put in quite a bit of effort to get a B. His questions are difficult and sometimes hard to understand. Gives quizzes every single week, and if u have a class cancelled he gives u a take home quiz. Won't give u a break! Cool guy tho

Mr. Lopez is a good professor, knows his stuff. Do the work, attend class, and you should do fine. Sweet and cheerful person outside of the classroom. However, don't sleep, chat or surf the internet in his class, he will yell at you and embarass you infront of everyone.

Very funny professor. Tests are based on the quizzes handed out in class gives back so u can copy down answers. Accent is a little thick but his jokes are clever. For me I didnt show up all the time so if ur like me, ur going to have to read the book and cover teh Key concepts he gives b4 each test. Otherwise u can show up take notes and pass

This is one of the best GEOG teachers!! If possible, take him for all GEOG classes... Grades extremely easy, quiz questions come back for test questions and he gives you all the time you want to copy your quizes down. Makes jokes and has a sense of humor. Can sleep in his class and still get an A!!

very amusing, jokes around with the class. alittle hard to understand with his accent, but he makes fun of himself for it and makes sure you understand what he is trying to say. if you have an A in the class previous you didnt have to take the final. knew what he was talking about and made the class interesting..i hated geography before

Great prof, you knew when class was starting because he'd open up a can of Mountain Dew. He was slightly hard to understand because of his accent, but he makes a lot of jokes that help you remember key material. Easy A if you show up for class, because even though he puts the notes online, sometimes uses the same examples on tests as in class.
