Comment:
I took ANTY101 and I took the honor section and it was a very much effortless class. I took this class fall semester 2020 so Kerr was very mindful about COVID and gave us many days off during the semester and gave us assignments we could do at home (aka watching a movie). If youre worried about this class increasing your school work load, dont.

Prof. Kerr is a super nice guy who means well and really likes monkeys (and chimps) and dogs. Lots of life history in his lectures, but he goes over the material needed to pass and with a few outside resources an A is not a lot of work.

Comment:
Garry Kerr is bar none, the most interesting person I have ever met. Many of his lectures will be spent telling you about all the interesting things he has seen and done. You do not need the book for this class. It is an extremely fun class and very easy to do well in. The class covers little information and as long as you show up you'll do well.

Gary Kerr has a heart of gold. However he is SUPER hard to sit and listen to. Also very quiet and goes off on rants. Also, you never use the textbook so dont buy it. The tests are mostly true or false, but the material isnt taught very well. I ended up getting ran A in the class and I have no clue how. Make sure you go to class, he posts nothing.

Kerr is one of the most personable and funny professors at UM. The only thing you have to do to get an A in this class is to show up. Tests are straightforward and easy to pass if you've gone to class. Kerr hilarious and has great stories to share. Fantastic class!

Hard to pay attention to a monotone teacher. Spend the whole semester trying to get a good grade on one of three tests. No other grades. No study guides. No book. All you have are notes and the tests are literally about his life experiences.

Please dont buy the book!! Lectures are dreadful in the sense that theyre his life stories, but are also very interesting. You HAVE to show up for the material. He gives you some answers. Show up every day, even though I probably took 10 pages of notes ALL semester. Hes a good guy, easy class, many tangents. (And dogs)

Take good notes, the tests for the course come from the lectures. In a large course like ANTY101H, attendance isn't mandatory, but make it a habit to go and get the easy A. I made the mistake of NOT going all the time, and got a B.

I don't think the University of Montana would be good at all, if it wasn't for professor's like Kerr, Domitrivich, and others that strive for student success, not failure. Without these professors, learning wouldn't be the same.

His lectures are more about his life than the subject but very interesting. Dont buy the book. Lecture is dreadful but its the only way to get the material. Doesnt use moodle.

This is an easy class to pass, but if you're looking to learn I would look somewhere else. He tells great stories, but most are only slightly applicable. If you like Jane Goodall or dogs this is the class for you!

Prof. Kerr is one of the most passionate professors I've ever had. His class is easy and filled with stories from his life adventures. The exams are not that bad. As a student, it's fun to see someone who really loves what they're doing.

The class isn't hard at all. Kerr is very funny. You can skip class as much as you want as long as you go to class the period before each test.

This class was a mess. I'd recommend getting the book, because my success on exams depended heavily on it. Professor Kerr doesn't tend to make any sense or stay on topic, he is a weird guy and I didn't know what he was going on about half the time. His lectures were boring and discombobulated. He is a really interesting guy, just not a good prof.

Lectures were not very interesting, but he would repeat things multiple times as a hint. Normally it will appear on the midterm exactly as he stated in lecture. Midterms were super easy, 1/4 of the question came from videos
