    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Class is very boring. Quizzes are all online and you have two tries at them, so those are easy 100%, but there are almost two every week, so you have to make sure you are keeping track of them. The lowest three get dropped. He grades attendance by iClicker responses. They don't have to be the correct answer to get credit. Lowest three are also dropped here. Exams are hard. He says they are based off the lectures only, but the lectures are sometimes up to 80 slides and there are usually 5 chapters per test. It is hard to know exactly what information he will test. For me, and a lot of others in this course, the stuff is not common knowledge so it takes a lot more studying than I expect. My advisor told me that I should stay in this class to fulfill my science credit, but it was not an easy A as I expected.

    Course highlights:

    Johnson is really nice if you go talk to him in office hours. He will help you with what questions you have or reviewing the test. Having the particpation and quiz grades were also a nice boost, but if you get average grades on your tests, it's hard to get an A. Most test averages in my class were 75% or so, sometimes less.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk to Johnson if you are having issues, he's really nice and is willing to help. He knows a lot of people are just taking his course to fill a requirement.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was hard and the exams was specific. but i really learned a lot of practical and useful stuff from it.

    Course highlights:

    it was about natural hazards. Professor Johnson used a lot of examples to show us the difference of hazards. I learned useful knowledge about hazards and how to prevent it and how to protect ourselves.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    go to class. and do the tests every time. you'll not regret that you paid attention to him.
