Tests are really hard because we cover a ton of material per test. 200 pages at least, and he will not help us with a review. Drones on in class and rambles. No powerpoints, so I leave class confused about what we learned. Has Clicker questions but they are usually terrible, like he wants us to get them wrong.

Terrible professor. Very unclear, doesn't know how to work any technology. Talks about Antarctica in class then assigns us complex homework about planets and earthquakes. The homework is time consuming and due almost every class.

Dr. Wise is literally the cutest professor I have ever had. He's so goofy and he genuinely loves what he teaches. He's also really accommodating if youre having trouble. This class isn't an easy a though, but he does provide lots of extra credit as long as you go to class and do the pq's.

Dr. Wise is awesome! DON'T EXPECT TO LEARN ABOUT DINOSAURS STRAIGHT AWAY!! You start by learning about rocks and geology, then evolution of life and planets, then dinosaurs. The class is super fun and really easy. The homework assignments are really long before the first exam, but most of the questions from the test are straight from the hw.

The class really isnt that bad. He really is a sweet and funny guy and really wants to see everyone do well, but gives really hard tests. Class lectures can be boring, but you get extra credit for answering the questions he asks throughout the class. Study for the tests and do as much extra credit as you can and you'll get an A. Take the class.

Yes, he's adorable, but for a non-major class, he really has to be sympathetic for his students. Why is SO much studying necessary for a class called "dinos & disasters"? I'm lucky for this to be my only legitimate final but I can't imagine what other people are going through.

The class was auditorium style with about 5 videos a day and 2 PRS questions. Tests were hard as hell for no reason. Homework was retarded field trips and random campus activities. I don't have time for corny stuff like that. Overall a very fun course but boring subject matter and tons of work.

Wonderful teacher, so enthusiastic about this class, but that also means a lot of work comes with it. Lots of homework (easy... but tedious) and tests can be abstract unless you study everything he gives you. 4 absences allowed, PRS extra credit given every class. Lots of videos and really, he is the cutest, nicest professor, you have to work for i

He gives more extra credit than any teacher I've met. He makes you learn about the evolving planet before you get to Dinos but it really is a cool and interesting class and he is a great teacher! I would highly recommend him. Tests are challenging but doable.

I thought this was a very good class. Dr. Wise is an extremely nice person, kind of weird, but very funny and helpful. If you go to class and do a lot of extra credit you should get an A. We watched lots of videos and slide shows and passed around specimens. HW assignments help bring up grade.

Don't be fooled by the course title "Dinosaurs and Disasters". This course is not "The land before time 1101". The course is difficult and you really need to study and read your course book. But if you do what you hae to do, you should pull through with atleast a B-.

This class is a trap!!! Dr. Wise is an awesome guy and a great teacher, but his class is very difficult and usually boring. It is not an easy A what so ever. It is true that he gives out a lot of extra credit but you have to earn it by answering rediculous pop questions and watching national geographic in your free time.

One of the best instructors I've had so far. Very engaging, loves his work, hilarious in a quirky old scientist way. Tons of extra credit, pretty liberal attendance freebies (four), always keeps things interesting. Good class for a morning class. Made me laugh a lot. Isn't the easiest, but if you study, it's totally no trick questions and whatnot.

Best professor so far!! Gives tons of extra credit. You need to attend lectures and pay attention to do well on tests. However, if you do all the extra credit and get at least c's on each test, you'll get the minimum of an A-. I got an A! :)

He was an awesome teacher! Gives tons of required extra credit that goes on top of exam grades. Very easy to talk to and cares about his students. If you do all the homework/extra credit easy A. Take him!!
