    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Knox is an old school professor who loves the weather and his students. This class is worth taking simply because he is a great person to know. That said the tests are crazy hard for no real reason. It took until the final test for me to learn to be successful on them. Study the review sheets and read the textbook.

    Course highlights:

    Getting to know Dr. Knox was a huge perk of this class. He is an amazing person with varied interests. He is also very nice. He teaches you way more than most would ever care to know about weather but he also includes practical info on weather related safety which is useful for everyone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, Dr Knox tries to make it fun. Also study. He wrote the textbook so its a great place to start. You will do well on the tests if you know every single thing on the study guide and can explain the concepts. Don't skim it once. STUDY IT FOR HOURS AND QUIZ YOURSELF

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Supposed to be an easy A for business majors to get science credit out of the way. Box is so old and goes way too fast through slides. He thinks everyone just understands everything immediately. So much information to memorize it is insane. I would study for a week straight and barely make Cs. Ended up with a B somehow, but it was a really hard class that didn't need to be a hard one. Wish I had known to take the other teacher instead of Box. The application of clouds was I swear on every tests even when it had nothing to do with clouds, yet the info about clouds was extremely hard to find so i always just missed those questions. He is a nice guy and a cute old man, but dang, don't put yourself through all this work if you don't care about weather and climate.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were that attendance wasn't mandatory. However, sometimes he made you turn in a paper with your name on it and he would count you present. At end of semester if you had attended more than half of the attendance checks (which were few) and had an average higher than an 80, you were exempt from the final. So luckily, I did not have to go through what would have been an extremely difficult final. I learned really nothing because it all went in one ear and out the other. I would memorize some stuff and barf it out onto a test and forget it all 20 minutes later.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it with Mr. Box. If you do take it with Box, honestly I don't know what you should do. The third test is only on one chapter and that was the one test I did well on, so look forward to that third test and take it seriously because it is your chance to do well for once.
