Dont take geology with this professor. The lectures are boring he has a monotone voice. He randomly gives you quizzes when you least expect them. I could of dropped the class like the rest of my class mates I did the extra credit and i tried i was two points away from a C but even though he saw I tried he still got a D I got A's on my other classes

Don't not go to lectures, yes they are boring but he does give pop quizzes. I think it was around 5 or 6, two of which I missed. But the labs are usually easy. You dont need book for class, only to study.

CONS: He's boring, gives a lot of pop quizzes, you need to study alott! PROS: He puts his lectures and chapter outlines and reviews online so if you study everything a lot you will be fine, gives extra credit assignments. You don't need the textbook, I never even opened mine.

YOU MUST STUDY. In lab, you work with teams and he grades them with checks. so its all participation. A little dry. Lots of extra credit. Test are hard because they are of 5 chapt at a time. Random quizzes. No trick questions on test. everything from study review. As long as you study that you will fine.

Good Prof. MUST STUDY is NOT Joke. Provides handouts, and labs are easy if you study also. I aced most stuff while people made 30-60. Do not take class thinking easy A, but easy if already interested

Dr. Tanck is a very nice professor. Lectures are a bit boring, but he shows some neat pics to keep your interest. His attitude reminds me of a hs teacher. Study! Tests have at least 5 chapters. Every other week there is a quiz. Lots of ex. credit.

i thought he was hard. i barely passed. its probably because Science is my weak point. So i had a difficult time. And its boring. Its like he's reading out of a dictionary. its Powerpoints of text for 1hr and a half. He also gives test that have mutiple chapters to them. like 1-8. So study up! lol

Little rude at times, reminds me of a high school teacher. Class is good, if science is not your strong area. tests have LOTS of chapters, you really have to study.

Dr. Tanck is a great teacher. I am amazed at the amount of material I have learned. This class is very demanding but the most fun I have had. Dr. Tanck has a delivery style that is a bit monotone so do not go to class sleepy. He is well worth the effort!

I took Dr. Tanck for both Geology courses, he is somewhat dry in his delivery but the knowledge that this professor has about the Geology field in amazing! Be prepared to study and you will do fine in his courses.
