Geography 110 is a great class to take. Clark is a great lecturer and focuses ALOT on statistics and graphs (make sure you know them because they will show up on the test). On the final he asked for 3 graphs that were NEVER represented to us and I will assume we had to "make sense" how the graphs would look. For the midterm most people got away without doing the readings but on the final SURPRISE SURPRISE!!! 3 out of 7 or 8 questions were based solely on the readings. The readings aren't that bad so you should do them and go to class!!!

The course itself is interesting, but you won't enjoy his class because there are lots of hard readings to do. Prof Clark loves numbers. So be prepared to reproduce tables and charts in exams.

He can be pretty dry; but his classes are very easy to take notes in. The reading was not excessive; and having us watch a movie outside of class to contextualize the material was cool. Maybe I'm just fond of the Geog profs w/ English accents.

The CA class with Clark is great for the first half, especially if you are a CA native. It's interesting to hear all the things you kind of knew about the state be reaffirmed by a bunch of academics (Clark has a lot of guests for the first few weeks). But once he starts lecturing himself, get ready for nonstop slides of graphs, charts, and data sets. His work focuses on immigration, so that's what you hear about the most. He often takes an hour or two to explain the same thing, over and over. Many other people in the class felt the same as I. There is a miterm, a final, and 3 page (single spaced) "research paper," in which you are supposed to get some data about CA and analyze some sort of problem (your choice). Not too hard. But don't take this class for the reeeeally easy A you were expecting, you will actually have to review and study a bit for the exams.
