    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Bridget Gonzalez is a new professor to UCLA. She has a background in Geomorphology and makes our Soil and Water Conservation class very entertaining and meaningful. Although the subject and textbook can get dry (pun intended), I recommend following her lectures and attending all lectures. Her tests cover what she mentions in class and are fairly easy. The tests are multiple choice questions mixed with short answer.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the soil profile and how to conserve soil and water, keeping in mind of practices that prevent/slow down erosion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you to memorize the main points of her lecture slides, which she posts each lecture
