GEOG 100and101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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

GEOG 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

GEOG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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!

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.
