Hardest Class I have taken in my life and I am a double major. Good luck getting ahold of him because he likes to "work from home" Doesn't use D2l so knowing your grade is impossible.

He is so strict and calls people out for whispering in his class. You definitely want to get on his good side which is hard to do. Be prepared to go to every single class and never look at your phone or talk to anybody or you'll get yelled at for 10 mins in front of 300 people by him.

Extremely nice guy! He randomly takes attendance so you want to always show up. He sometimes strays from the topic but most of the time its interesting. If you show up and do the assignments you'll get an A.

WONDERFUL TEACHER! My favorite teacher at MNSU. I wouldn't advise that anyone take this class unless they are extremely interested and dedicated. It is a pretty hard class, but if you put forth the effort, you can make an A. He likes to make sure people are actually learning, and he takes his job very seriously, so pay attention!

Very easy class! He is very helpful and is very clear on everything that is assigned. Works around your schedule. His notes are all you need for tests and being in class. Book was only used for online quizzes cause his tests are based off his notes not the book. Highly recommend this prof!

Great teacher! His class is very structured and is strict with his rules but he is very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Tests were hard, but when getting attendance and if you do the homework assignments you shouldn't have a problem with your final grade.

He takes attendance almost once every week. The Study Guides and Lecture are all you will need for a low A on the test. Book for 100%. He offers an essay version of the exam, gives you 15 possible questions on a study guide. memorize good answers for most of them = Ace test. He gives alot of time to do the Labs, Dont Forget about them.

He is a really good teacher, and knows what he is talking about. The tests are hard, but not impossible. He gets side tracked often, and gives a lot fo extra credit on his tests. I enjoyed having him because he i down to earth with reality. Staying awake is a problem though.

Have to attend class. Exams are hard but not impossible. He is flexible, but don't get on his bad side. He tries to make class as interesting as possible. Not too bad of a general class. Dont' need to buy textbook just go to library and use theirs.

This guy is not easy at all. His exams aren't easy either. U have to study real hard for them. You have to buy the work book which has a lot of assignments. Tough class overall. You have to be interested in GEOG otherwise you'll fall asleep.

On a teaching level, he's a pretty good teacher. He knows his stuff and goes through everything. On a personal level, I think he's a jerk. He freaks out a lot. Sometimes people walk out of class after they sign the sign-in sheet, literally chases them outside and yells at them. Kind of crazy. He flipped out 5 min into class swearin at everyone.

Great instructor and a wonderful class. He made it very enjoyable and he is a pretty funny guy. Going to class is very important for your grade. If you miss 6 class days where attendance is taken, you fail, period. I attended and learned a ton in this class. I wouldn't say I was very interested in geography prior, but I liked his class a lot.

Interest is needed. If you aren't interested in weather and physical geo. it will be difficult to keep up. Attendance can save you.

Very good teacher! Tests are hard but if you get all of the attendance points and do well on the labs you'll get an A. Tests are based off of concepts and knowing details. but he is very passionate about what he teaches which makes it a GREAT class!
