    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think it is very cool and interesting to learn about the Earth. I love nature and the beauty of the sculpted mountains, rocks, minerals... I find it all so beautiful and fascinating. And yes, I want to put the rocks in my mouth.

    Course highlights:

    I am currently in the course, and so far I have learned about the big bang, that it doesn't need to contradict theology. I've learned about Pangea, plate tectonics, and we're starting to dive into minerals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would do the required reading. The professor goes over the main ideas in class, but because I've been reading the Geology textbook (which isn't too hard to do after chapter 2), it is very easy during class. What he tells us sounds familiar, and since what he's talking about is already in the back of my mind, I can come to him with questions or generate new ideas, etc. Also I am taking notes on all of the foreign or important vocabulary from the textbook to familiarize myself with it so that when it's said I can fluidly follow the discussion.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Well it is a basic class.... But the teachet treats it like a higher level class. This makes it hard to study for when you are being asked to memeorize many terms and dates while trying to gain a basic knowledge of the course. I would not recommend it for a students first semester.

    Course highlights:

    I didnt really learn that much from hin. It was all too confusing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get good at flash cards and read everything in the sylubus five times so nothing is unclear.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a pretty good class and my favorite part was having to do some field work. I did take a once a week/3 hr. class and that was tedious at times.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the field work, which mainly was a list of field trips and I had to pick one to do than report back. I chose the Park City Silver Mines, when it was still open.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only do it if you're really into that kind of stuff. If you are just trying to fill an elective or science category, it might not interest you that much.
