Although he seems like a nice approachable guy, the whole course is based on some vague theory he came up with himself. Lectures are very boring and monotnous, there no real outline he lectures against, its all just rambling on and on. Even when you ask a question, he doesnt really answer it, hell just keep repeating what he initially said. I have not learned much from this course at all, and he has honestly put me off of geography, a subject I once loved. There is a reason his classes stay open til the last day...because no one would willingly want to subject themselves to this, the majority of the students in this class are taking it because they registered late and this is one of the few classes that were open. Oh yeah, and the whole class is based on just one midterm and one final, it kind of seems like this is due to his laziness and unwillingness to grade anything more than that, but this seriously screws students over, especially with the way he grades which is extremely hard. He gives you like 4 lines to write the answer while warning that anything more than that will not be graded, and then complains that you didnt fully answer the question. I dont know a single person in this class that has had a good experience, everyone walks out with a wth was that about kind of a feeling. *ends rant* sorry, just had to get this off my chest
