Quizzes and exams are not proctored and are all on quizlet. Don't take the lab that is hard. Attendance grade is to fill out a slop of paper during lectures and turn in.

Extremely easy to do well with minimal effort
Content may be useful for water science majors, but it is an easy science elective. All that is required to do well is pay attention during his 50 minute lectures.
Con: very quiet prof Prof: very generous with due dates

For those going into soil science or plant science, this is a required course. I thoroughly enjoyed it - some of it was difficult (a bit of physics but my plant brain managed to survive). Mine was based out of the WFREC so I'm sure that this review won't apply for the masses.
Soil chemistry, composition, relationships between nutrient interactions, etc.,
Professor Daroub was extremely pleasant. It was sometimes difficult to get an email response back quickly (never quick enough regardless of the class haha).
Honestly, I wish I would have taken the time to really dig into the material. The book was online (Redshelf, cheaper than physical copy) and I still own it. It's a great reference material. You can definitely skate by in this class, but to anyone going into horticultural, natural resource, or soil sciences - pay attention because the information you gain in this class is applicable to any other class going forward in your academic career.
