    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a fairly easy A, who also wants to have an interesting class with a fun professor. So everyone. Professor cracks jokes, doesn't have a problem cussing, really understands the material and presents it in a very very straightforward way with real world applications. Class was very diverse and attentive with 80-90% turnout every lecture, which is excellent for a class that doesn't have mandatory attendance. Honestly it was the only class I didn't ditch all semester.

    Course highlights:

    I went in to the course with a general knowledge of what the air is and how water is important and how dirt is good for the planet and all that good stuff. I came away with knowing how the atmosphere, water, land, and life all interconnect and occur in ways I'd never imagined before. I think the highlight of the course was finding out about Eolian processes. Eolian means wind-movement and has to do with how in arid places of the world such as deserts, are shaped in the absence of water. For example if you've ever seen sand dunes, there are actually 15 or so different types of dunes and they are all shaped through various changes and factors in the surrounding environment. But the best part is we also covered the whole 9 yards of factors and changes so instead of learning one cool thing and leaving the class thinking "damn that was cool, I wonder what would happen if X occurred... would it affect Y in a different way if Z happened?" but then you never find out and that thirst for knowledge you had is lost, you can ask that question and get the answer right there, which peaks the interest of other students, which in turn makes the class better all around. This is the class for you if you like nature and finding out about new, interesting REAL LIFE occurrences that you can walk outside and see as soon as you leave class every day. He literally answers why the sky is blue guys, come on. Take the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that you read the text, but supplement it with google image searches whenever a new thing comes up that you know little-to-nothing about. (Seriously, go look up how hydraulic fracturing of rock works in nature and tell me you don't think that's cool) He doesn't try to trick you on exams or quizzes, so just know your material. Its easier than you think, many people failed on account of not dong anything except tests (without studying), expecting them to be a breeze. Read. Enjoy yourself. Get an A.
