One of my favorite professers in Langara, his lab assignments are not too heavy and very easy to write, but you still need to study hard for the exam or you may get a low mark

Could take the course at my own pace and wasn't overwhelmed with many small side tasks. The lectures were very helpful and straightforward, no useless ramblings but helpful analogies to remember and understand the material. If you do not like wasting time on things that won't be quizzed and like being independent in your learning, I fully recommend

Leonard was great! Weekly lab assignments were not too difficult. Formulas provided for the lab exam and he gave detailed study guides for the midterm and final. Lectures were clear, be sure to take good notes.

Didn't need to read the textbook for his class, all info is in the lectures. He explains things well and is very helpful during the labs. The theory part of class is easy but the lab part requires a fair bit of math, but nothing too hard. Exams were straightforward.

Great class! Didn't really need to touch the textbook, as his exams were mainly on the PowerPoint slides. However, be sure to go to class, because he does not post the slides online. Also, be sure to complete your lab assignments (they aren't too difficult!). 100% would take again! This course has a field trip!!!

Comment:
If you're new to Geography and your math skills aren't up to par, I'd suggest not taking Leonard's class. His general attitude towards questions leaves a lot to be desired. For example, I wasn't understanding something and I kept rephrasing my question but he kept giving me the same canned response without any insight. Not a great teacher.

Took 1180 with Leonard and found it VERY hard. As others have said, if you're not at post-secondary leval math you will struggle as I did. Lectures were alright but Leonard is not approachable for help during labs. Overall he did not teach the class well and didn't seem passionate about his topic at all. He just seems to enjoy his authority.

Took 1180 for funsies, Leonard was swell but I'd say you would have to pay attention in class or already of had experience on the subject to do well. The lab manual was useful, didn't open the textbook once, but I also found the lectures relatively clear. I found his jokes extremely entertaining, but I might of been the only one who thought so.

Can't detour you enough from taking this course, and I would never again take a course instructed by Leonard. Labs are easy enough if you take good notes, but if you do need help, he will not give it to you. The TA is just as unhelpful and even more unapproachable. After asking a q, door was closed in my face saying "times up."

Comment:
Not a recommended course to take if one is not already disciplined in some knowledge about Georgraphy, or someone who needs guidance. Both the prof and lab assistant are not helpful. The notes written on the board are limited, the prof says the text isn't necessary, but I recommend the text if one is new to geography.

Comment:
Mr. Tang was my favorite prof at Langara. He's very approachable and willing to help if you don't understand the material-a true educator. Some of the labs can be a bit tricky but he allows you to bring them home for a night so you can get a head start (or finish the whole thing ) before the actual lab period. Great class, definitely recommended.

Mr. T is awesome. He is so passionate about what he teaches and that makes a big difference. Though its a pretty tough class especially if you are not great at math, If you dedicate enough time to studying you can do good. I have a kid and a million things going on and struggled with the math. Nonetheless, interesting course &he's a great teacher.

if you are horrible at math like myself, DO NOT take this course. The theory exam in my opinion is easy if you study, the lab exams and labs in general are really difficult especially since i find he didn't explain them well prior to handing them out.
