Okay. I would definitely recommend this class for a GE. Honestly. I suck at Geography. I had absolutely no background knowledge on it (believe it or not) but I ended up with a B. So let me tell you. I got a D on the midterm and a C on the final and I got a B! Yes. It’s true. Honestly, the lab counts way more than the actual tests. It’s a lot of busy work but it’s worth it. You just have to post hw’s Every week, attend labs, and do class assignments. The midterm and final weren’t even hard, I’m being serious, I just suck at Geography and I was lazy. Anyways, I’m sure it’s super easy to get an A if I was able to get a B when I’m dumb. TAKE THIS. Just go to the labs. ALSO he gives you 1% to your overall grade if you answer a question or ask a question during class. You can get up to 2% extra credit. SUPER GENEROUS.

The class is good only for those who are native and able to memorize those tree names by haearing the name. But for those who dont know how to spell many terms you gonna struggle with this class. The material is not that interesting for me as well.

I took this class first quarter of my Freshman year to fulfill a physical science GE requirement. BEST CLASS EVER. I looked forward to going to lecture because Prof. Gillespie was so entertaining and funny. I've never had so much fun in a class and I've never had such a genuinely interesting Professor. He is so enthusiastic about the material that my attention never wandered. The content is extremely easy and there is almost no outside work required other than reviewing for the midterm and final and one group project. Despite this, you're still learning a ton! I cannot stress it enough, TAKE THIS CLASS. You won't regret it and you'll have such a fun time learning about some interesting environmental concepts.

I loved this class. She was super knowledgeable about the topics and used some of her personal experiences to explain the concepts. This class is basically an introduction to environmental studies or environmental science. The tests were MC, easy if you studied. Lab section was more of a discussion than a lab, with a lab report at the end (with a partner) on an environmental issue. Overall, a great class with fair tests. If you're interested in this subject or want a relatively easy GE, she's great to take it with!

Not an easy A. The midterm and final will surprise you with specific material that you don't remember learning about. That being said, she's an alright professor. Lectures were mildly interesting and she seems pretty nice/funny.

Prof Leddy has been, by far, one of the most interesting professors I've had at UCLA. He knows his stuff. He always presents (or has you read) ALL sides of an argument despite what his opinion may actually be (you can probably pick out his opinion by the witty remarks he makes here and there that usually only make 2 or 3 people laugh, me being one of them!). Prof Leddy is also really good about not shooting down students' opinions so fast. He values what every student had to say, no matter how brainless a comment is made. Tests are pretty straight forward, with some questions being semi-tricky at worst.

PS- For the person who was complaining about Prof Leddy not posting notes on time... GET OVER IT!!! And for portraying him as a 'liar'? That is definitely not fair.
