Mineralogy: Earth and Planetary Materials
Fall 2020 - I love Professor Kavner, she is the sweetest and really cares about her students! However, this was such an unclear and confusing class. She graded none of our work before she submitted our final grades, which was A LOT of work, and then arbitrarily assigned 95% of the class B's with 1 or 2 A's and C's. I did a lot of hard work for this class so I was very disappointed to never receive any feedback and then get a poor grade.
GE 70A Compared to Larkin, Mckeegan is more disorganized(as seen through his powerpoints)and less hardworking( he doesn't write supplement notes or go through the midterm review questions as thoroughly as Larkin does). However, on the whole, I think he also makes a decent lecturer. Some people might find his portion of the class a little more lackluster, but that's not really his fault. In my opinion, people find him less favorable because 1) his speciality is about rocks, and 2) everyone in the room knows Larkin is a genius( and a really nice one too) and so naturally, they would prefer him no matter how his competition does.
