Class met 10:00 to 1:30 on fridays and was very hard to stay focused. He is not very knowledgable on the subject and gives out little work. However, most of the work he gives out is extensive and is graded hard. He is not ver specific about what he wants in his papers. I would advise to avoid if at …more all possible. Very boring. less

Pretty boring, but an averagely simple class. Extra credit if you get perfect attendance. Goes pretty fast during lectures so bring your laptop.

Makes it very interesting. My class is 8 am and he keeps me awake. Doing the reading really helps but he covers it really well in his lectures.

Very hard. He give few homework assignments but they are extremely extensive and are graded meticulously. It is one of those classes where everyone is expecting to fail but in the end he helps you out. I loves his subject and is easy to talk to after class.

Took him for Biofuels, class was alright. My work however did not reflect my grade, and most questions that were asked went unanswered. I do feel i learned alot, however had i simply looked over his powerpoints i would have learned the same amount of info.

His lectures are long and the PP's are wordy, I recommend taking pictures of the slides. He gives pop-quizzes sometimes but they can be predicted (gave 3 quizzes before each test). I HIGHLY recommend taking pictures of the quiz questions, his tests are made up of almost all quiz questions. Pay …more attention to what he writes down. Attendance is random. less

Dr. Houser is really great. His lectures can be boring at times, but most of the time they are interesting. You have "pop" quizzes over the lectures, but they aren't hard at all. All of the questions on the exams come from the quizzes (take pictures!) so you're guaranteed to get a high A on all the …more exams. Bring a laptop to take notes! less

Houser isn't all that bad, seems easy going for the most part. I think he loses momentum without an engaging class, so he may be bored if you're being boring and not discussing things. As for tests and exams, see the other comments, they're spot on. There is/was a group debate project before the …more final; he was very tough on grading it! less
