Although I was happy to have a GPA boost, I was saddened by the lack of effort Professor Manson put into this class. I wish he posted lecture recordings where we could see his face rather than just posting powerpoints because, especially during COVID-19, studying from the uploaded slides alone made this class feel like a waste. Also, don't buy the textbook because even though he says it's fair game for the tests, he uses different wording from the textbook and can deduct points from your tests sometimes if you word something in a way that is too far removed from the slides.

He was an awesome professor. It was a small class so he knew everyone pretty well. He is extremely approachable. The reading were dense, and he knew this, but he did his best in leading the discussions in the class as smoothly as possible. He likes when you participate and give your opinion, in no way does he make you feel bad for stating something that is irrelevant. He encourages student participation as much as possible. Pop-quizes throughout course, but definitely not difficult. One research paper that he allows you to choose your own topic, not difficult at all. Got an A in the class. I recommend taking him!

The class was not too hard. However you cannot just get by without doing anything. The midterm and final were extremely fair because he gives you a study guide to prepare for it. The lectures can be a little dry and boring, but he always posts them online which helps a lot. The professor is fairly good, however the topic "Animal Communication" was somewhat misleading. I guess I was expecting another method of the theories, but it mainly invovled evolutionary principles and lots of examples, but yeah I guess it is about communication. I have to final Tuesday and I would recommend this class, you do learn a lot.
