Comment:
In the first few lectures, lots of people were asking really good questions that I had as well. Dr. Durrant kept brushing them off. Praising them for being good but endlessly talked about how we would discuss that in the coming weeks(idk if he ever did). People asked less questions after that. Very boring and pointless lectures. Waste of time.

One of the easiest classes ive taken and dr durrant is the best teacher. Go to class and take good notes because he goes through stuff fast and it will be on the test as short answers. 60% of your grade are your tests so go to class and do the readings. If you study for the tests you will get an easy A or close to it. The readings are so important

Comment:
I had a creepy professor last semester, and I thought he would be my least favorite professor forever-- I was wrong. Durrant's class is extremely disorganized and chaotic; most of his lectures never even related to information we needed to know. If you need GEOG 120 for credit, let me save you some time; do NOT take it from Durrant!

My favorite professor by far! He actually makes class enjoyable. Take his classes any chance you get! Sometimes he even cancels the final :)

There was clear grading criteria for everything in this class and Dr. Durrant is definitely willing to work with you on any grading that seems questionable on a test. It was a great class to take for a GE as he made everything interesting and the work load was not over the top. If you go to class and take good notes then tests are easy.

Don't bother buying the textbook. All the info for the MCQ he gives can be found on the internet or past quizlets. Super easy class, but you have to pay attention in class to get the info for the SEs. Sometimes TA would grade things wrong that were right, so double check and get all your points. Easiest class ever.

Great class for a GE. He is very direct with what he wants. Must go to class to get information for tests. A bit boring at times but he keeps it interesting.

The tests are really what make the difference in this class. But Dr Durrant pretty much tells you exactly what will be on the test. As long as you do the few assignments, study for the quizzes and the tests, it's super easy. He makes the class interesting too - got a real dry sense of humor

Lectures are unorganized. You have to memorize a LOT of numbers for tests (like over 100 throughout the course). However, you know exactly what to study. He gives 60 questions to you puts 30 of them on the midterms. Short answers are reviewed in class. 6 easy quizzes on vocab and maps. Ok class for a GE. Dr. Durrant tries to keep it interesting.

Professor Durrant is fantastic! The class is very clear and relatively easy for a GE class. Very funny and entertaining as well. Grade is based on one essay, six quizzes, and 3 tests. With a little effort, it's an easy A.

There were 6 easy quizzes, one of which was dropped, 2 easy assignments, and 3 tests, which he basically gives you all the answers to ahead of time. The lectures were sometimes boring and we jumped around to a lot of different topics, but overall it was a fairly interesting class.

This class is a doable A. There are 6 short quizzes that are easy and two small assignments. Besides the final, there are two other tests. Professor Durrant gives you multiple choice questions prior to the test, and then he chooses some from the questions he gave you. He also pretty much gives the answers for the short answer portion in class.

Super easy class for a GE. He was really funny and made lectures interesting (given the inherently dull topics). Great teacher. Reviews everything that will be on the test. No ambiguity in the class. You know all your assignments at the beginning of the semester and they are all really easy. Good class.

He's a really good teacher, he's not too intense or serious but he always explains the material really well. His lectures are entertaining and helpful at the same time. He's very clear about whats going to be on the test, making studying a lot easier.

I found this class interesting. The class was extremely easy. There are 8 quizzes that are basic and can be aced with 30 minutes of study beforehand. The midterms are easy also. He gives you the multiple choice questions and gives you a great idea of what the short answer will be. After that you just need to study. I would take from him again.

This class is everything you want in a GE: minimal work, you're told exactly what you need to know for the quizzes/exams, and Dr. Durrant is hilarious. The readings can be done just before the test (readings help answer the test study guide questions), meaning basically no H.W. I found myself always looking forward to class and laughing often.

He is awesome and his class was great! He gives you ALL the test questions ahead of time. Find the answers yourself- DON'T trust the class google doc that everyone uses. Its tempting but not worth it because when people answer wrong, you study it wrong. Sometimes his lectures are not the most engaging but even so, it is SUPER easy to get an A.
