Olsen, Paul
Dinosaurs and the History of Life

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This was one of the most exciting classes I have had in my life. Prof Olsen not only knows his stuff well but also helps students understand the material. The material is fascinating for anyone who thinks that evolution and dinosaurs are interesting. The work load might seem difficult to non- science majors, with all the names of epochs, dinosaurs etc. But its worth taking if you want to get a diet version of the history of life. A plus to Prof Olsen and A plus to the course.

Workload:

if one reviews the material regularly and does not leave it to the last minute, it is not as difficult as it may seem. One term paper and one final- both do-able when not left for the last minute.
