Human Impact on Biophysical Environment: What Science Has Learned
Winter 2020 - Professor Xue was the only professor I went to OH for because he genuinely wants students to succeed and he's one of the only professors that actually tries to get to know you (he memorizes everyone's names). The workload of the class is pretty light and if you study the study guide he gives then you will be fine (he gives it a week in advance so you have time). Also, the study guide is longer than the actual exams so as long as you study that you'll be fine. All the info you need to do well in the class is in the handouts. The exams are short answers which I was initially scared for because I've never taken a blue book exam before but he's mainly just looking for keywords and even said bullet points are fine for some questions. I don't get why the other reviews are so harsh. Professor Xue doesn't try to trick you on exams and he repeats/stresses the important concepts a lot so you can guess what will be on the exam. Just because he has an accent doesn't mean he's a bad professor, you guys are just racist.
