If you don't mind doing homework then you'll like Dr. Bein. He's very eccentric, but he's aware of it and he uses it appropriately so that it doesn't distract from learning.

I'm a former geog. major. Dr. Bein is the best mentor I've ever had in geography and I've had some good ones. He truly cares about the subject and especially about the students.

Dr. Bein has a unique perspective on things. He is very knowledgeable. The more proactive you are in his class, the better you willl do.

Overall this was an easy class. Some assignments here and there and quizzes pretty often, but nothing was difficult. I didn't even use a textbook for the class and still got an A. I would suggest taking the class to anyone for a GPA boost.

Had him for an intense 6 week summer course, and he did NOT make it bearable. Gave a ridiculous amount of homework without time off between 12 quizzes, and had an essay based final in which we couldn't really study for. Powerpoints weren't organized and outdated. Only thing I liked was that there …more were no real textbooks required. less

Very disorganized but nice guy. Really knows his stuff about Africa. Goes off on tangents and it takes some getting used to as what is needed for the tests/quizzes. Not the best but not the worst.

Dr. Bein is honestly one of the worst teachers I've had. I hate to say that because he is such a nice person but he is extremely disorganized, incompetent with technology, a poor speaker, and generally awkward. What's more, I feel that I learned almost nothing from this class. Unfortunately, I have …more to recommend that you pass on his courses. less

Dr. Bein is hands down the worst professor I have ever had. He has no sense of organization or class management. His lectures are unrelated to the quizzes and the assigned textbook is useless and unrelated to the class. I have to look up everything online. Do not take any class with Bein unless you …more have to. It is all busy work and you learn nothing less

He gave the same exact lecture twice with a month in between the occurrences. I think that says enough about his level of interest in teaching, his absent mindedness, lack of organization, and incompetency as a professor.

This professor was just awful. He's incredibly disorganized and gives the same lecture at least 2 times a month. If you want a college "story time" class, take this one; although, his lectures do not correlate with his quizzes. I can't tell you a single thing about Environmental Conservation, but …more I can tell you all his stories he tells. less
