Comment:
He is a nice man but he might have lost his ways of teaching. He put up notes but he takes them too fast, and gives no time to write them, since he doesn't not use UR courses, it is very hard to get the notes. Reading the book is no help, his exams are very hard, the material he emphasizes in class is not what is on the exams.

Comment:
Very experienced professor and extremely knowledgeable. Great to pick his brain. Not entirely clear about expectations for the midterm/final, but if you go to class and read the textbook all will be good. NOTHING is posted online, and all information in class is supplemented with projector sheets, so if you have a hard time seeing sit at the front.

Comment:
His years of experience in the field is very evident & as a Geology major I was grateful to have him. Though a bit unclear with what is on the tests if you never miss a class, take thorough notes & study the textbook extensively you will do well. The class isn't easy but if you truly want to learn then he is great! (with a nice sense of humor also)

Reading the textbook is the most important thing for this class. He's very clear on specifying what is important to know for this course.

Too much demanding. No format for the Mid-term. Mid-term has nothing to do with the review. 20 chapters in 4 weeks. Avoid his class.

I totally agree with these comments. I attended class diligently thinking this would help my mark. Not at all - 95% of the final was directly from the textbook.

Terrible prof, easy midterm, impossible final. Teaches you nothing during class, so you have to do all studying off the 400 page textbook. Problem is, you have no idea what to study in the textbook, because you have no idea what will be on the exams.

Comment:
Very sweet man. He added marks to everyone's midterms--his own decision, not pressured to. If he sees a student walking to class he will wait for u, and chat with u, and make sure you are doing okay in the class, etc. Lectures are boring-not my field.

Maybe when the class average is fifty percent or less, it is your teaching! Just maybe.

Comment:
He basically teaches directly from the text book so you can pretty much teach yourself everything he teaches in class. Classes are extremely boring! *yawn* Tests are alright, not too hard. My advice: Read the text and Good Luck
