GEOG1701 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Had as night class, bad timing for the class but as i found out it was a great class. Knows a TON about history/geog. Map quiz everynight, if you stay for the rest of the class you will not regret it, he will help you out at end of course with grading if he likes you. shame he only teaches one class. Great Guy. Great Class.

Geo1700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Map quiz every week which are easy if you study. Lectures are really boring. To do well in class you have to read the book in the library I realized that too late. His notes don't help much. 2 tests which were kind of hard.

GEOG1700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

There is a map quiz every week but if you give a slight effort of looking up the places you should be fine. Lectures are really really boring. It is really hard to pay attention, unless you like to look at number charts for two hours. Tests are really hard, worst class ever, don't take it.

GEOG1700 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is a really good teacher. Exams are open notes except his map quizzes. There is map quiz every class but its very easy. His mid-term and final are a bit hard but if you read through his lecture notes than you should be fine.

Geog160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not a horrible teacher or a bad guy. But the problem is that his lessons consist of us sitting in the class going over a slide for about an hour and he points to things that we can easily read. The work is either extremly easy or extremly hard. Nothing in between.

The professor is really cool and laid back. All of the class lecture notes are on line and you get to use those notes on exams. He's a cool guy but the class is slightly diffcult, but not too bad.

at first he appears to be a good teacher, but once you take his class you realize that his is simply a sad, miserable man who prides himself by laughing at his students who spend countless hours slaving over books to pass his worthless exams. then, after all the work, he laughs in your face and fails you. thanks for nothing fernald

Great Guy. Health Inspector by day, teacher by night. Use his website, go to class, do the paper and tests, get an A.
