    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor, interesting lectures, small workload. He gives out course outlines and slides that include information on everything that will be discussed in lectures.

    Course highlights:

    Learned that soils lead to the rise and fall of entire civilizations. Featured many real world scenarios on why soil quality should be maintained.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to lectures and print out the course outlines. It would also be helpful to look at the slides before class and have them in class just in case you miss something.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dirt is not a topic which many people would consider interesting at a glance. Turns out it IS interesting. Fascinating, really. Furthermore, it's fairly useful. A rather large portion of the world is made out of dirt. We use it for an awful lot of things, and have to deal with it frequently in our day-to-day lives. Ever wonder how it got there? What it's made out of? What you can do with it? What you CAN'T do with it? If any of these questions have ever crossed your mind, you may want to take this class. If none of these questions have ever crossed your mind, you NEED to take this class. Seriously. Dirt. Think about it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what comprises dirt, how it's made, what the difference is between the types of soils, what uses they have, and how they change over time and under certain circumstances. Through the lab, my partner and I learned what kinds of data it is important to gather about a soil, how to gather that data, and how to relate it back to overall soil quality. pH, microbial respiration, sand/silt/clay content, NPK, carbon levels; It wasn't just a bunch of meaningless sets of numbers. Everything tied back in to what we learned in lecture. Everything had a purpose.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find a great study partner. Use the study guides and other resources they give you. Make sure that you save ALL of your data and keep it handy and organized, as you WILL NEED IT for the final lab report. Above all: attend lecture. All the material is covered there, and Randy is a hoot. You'll enjoy it.
