Fall 2015 - This class really was easy but the tests are so short and worth SO much of your grade. The exams focus on such a small amount of information, so you end up overstudying but usually not the right information which really can damage your grade. Good class but just tricky and frustrating when it comes to tests.
Fall 2017 - Overall I really enjoyed this freshman cluster, which was taught by a combination of professors including Nordby. I found the class engaging and a great experience for freshman (on the Hill, field trips and other activities over a year long period). I found some of the assignments busywork but the grading seemed fair to get an A. The structure is three classes over three quarters, the final spring quarter being a seminar, which I really enjoyed as it was experience with seminars and research.
