Lynn Sykes

May 2002

The class is very well organized. Everything is accessible online (lectures, hws, exams). The lectures are well paced and easy to understand. Proffesor Sykes is incredibly warm and is very willing to help (he actually checks his emails on weekends unlike some!). Work load is not heavy, very easy to do well. Very pleasant and laid back atmosphere. The class covers a lot of intersting topics (everythign form basics of earthquakes to international mitigation to terrorism). Usefull and interesting.
