Professor Monson is a great teacher. He really knows the material that is being taught. I used the textbook to review the material in 101 but you could get along fine without the textbook as long as you go to class every day and take notes on the slides. Tests are mostly short answer and 2 field trips are required.

I absolutely loved taking classes from Prof. Monson and plan on taking more. Everything on the test is covered in class, the book is not necessary but is a great supplement. Very entertaining

Clark Monson is the man! His lectures can sometimes be dull, but if you take notes, you will stay awake and get an A. I didn't study the textbook as much as I should have. Don't make the same mistake. His tests are pretty much what he goes over in class, but the book is where all the info comes from. Nicest guy in the world, also super funny.

DO NOT take this class during the spring/summer terms. For a 101 class, it's really difficult because you have SO much material to cover in such a short time. Go to class and take tons of notes because most of his exams are written (as in not multiple choice and you have to explain everything word for word). He gets side tracked easily. Great guy!

Lots of memorization. Concepts aren't hard you just have to memorize.

In 101, Monson saves the hard chapters for the final, but all the midterms are pretty easy material. My only complaint is that the disorganization leads to lecture-cramming in class and confusion around test time.

At the beginning of the semester, he said we could still pull an A without the book, so I returned my book. There were a few questions on the exam I didn't know, but as I head into finals, I have an A. But you must attend all classes and review your notes often. Great class. Learned interesting stuff. Dr. Monson is awesome.

Go to class, take good notes and you will do fine. Nice, helpful guy. Funny, enjoyed his lectures. Explanations are clear. You do read every chapter and will be quizzed.

He uses disney in half of his lectures, his witty humor is hilarious, he explains concepts clearly, and he truly cares about his students. Likes to meet personally at least once with every one of his students. 3 field trips required. Tests are easy if you fill out the study guide. Never had to open my textbook once, just go to class

Super nice and funny guy. Very helpful and cares about his students. Lecture is frightfully boring, though. I bought the textbook and read it and did better on the tests than I did by taking notes in class. Not difficult or very time consuming, which is nice.

He is a wonderful teacher. I had to withdraw due to medical reason and he worked with me. He is an fun teacher to listen to. I would take any of his classes. The homework is easily manageable but class is important if you do not read.

Natural Hazards is one of the best classes I took this semester. The book is rather boring, but Dr. Monson has a ton of funny stories for each section. If you go to class, listen, and copy the slides, the tests are pretty easy.

Go to class every day to get all of the notes if you don't get the book. Tests can be kind of hard because they are written. Be sure you get accurate notes and do the study guide.

The only reason why I came to class was to copy the three slides he had up for the day and to giggle ridiculously loud about all his tangents. Seriously, take him if you want an super easy A. Current event due every other week worth 10 pts each, 3 tests worth 50 each. Final was a cut and paste from the previous three tests

Prof Monson is one of my favourite profesors. If you arent paying attention he may sound monotone but he has a very clever humour and I spent a lot of time entertained. His tests are easy if you take notes so attendance is v.important. Very enjoyable classes and a highly recommended prof

Clark Monson is a really cool guy and is very personable. His lessons can be a bit dull, but his quarkiness was half the fun of the class. He is really good at remembering names and getting to know his students. I would take him again.
