    Jake is VERY laid back, and that will be evident the moment you meet him. the test questions came exactly from the notes and he would gladly help you with the worksheet questions. the only problem would be that some of the topics he talks about might be a little 'uncomfortable' for some people. but i would recommend this class ...Continue reading

    Jake is such an easy professor, he always tells you what is on the test and what you should write down. Lets you know his republican opinions & it cracks people up. Loses it during some lectures & drops a lot of curse words. Really understanding & easy to approach. Said in the syllabus we aren't allowed to make up tests, but he let me. Test all based on his powerpoint notes. Grade is based on 3 tests & book assignments. TAKE HIM! ...Continue reading

    Jake is a very crazy professor. He just wants students to not bug him too much and pester him for a better grade. As an older student returning to school, I know that I would not want him teaching his values to my children. Thank goodness I am not a geography major! Highly recommend ...Continue reading

    Very easy class. However, do not take this class if you are offended easily, have AIDS, or are a prostitute. and I wasn't to happy at first, but this class turned out to be my favorite. He is offensive yes, but I still thought he was funny. Class is always entertaining and the tests are straightforward, he doesn't trick you. Just review the notes and your cool. He's a really nice guy in person. I LOVED this class. ...Continue reading

    I honestly don't think he cares if you learn anything about geography in his class. He makes class super interesting and is hilarious. The tests are fair but you still need to study. You don't have to go to class if you don't want to, but you should make sure that you get the notes. He rocks! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    super easy class. Only had to show up to copy power points. Told you exactly what would be on each exam, and gave the exams online with no time limit. Can be rude since he doesnt filter what he says, but as long as you dont take offense to it, it can be funny. Usually cuts class short. If you want an easy A take this class. ...Continue reading

    Jake is hilarious and the most helpful professor i have EVER had. He lectures notes for 3-4 weeks and opens the exam up on D2L for about four days. Usually cancels class the day of the exam because the exam is online. No homework or use of textbook. Very easy and funny guy, but attendance is mandatory (all notes are given out via lecture) ...Continue reading

    Pretty easy teacher. You don't have to go to class, but make sure you have someone to get notes from if you don't go. Tests are pretty easy. You only use the textbook for the worksheets he gives out just before the tests. ...Continue reading

    amazing teacher with amazing lectures. They're also online which, if you have ADHD like me, makes them even worse.

Take him! ...Continue reading

    Jake is AWESOME. Very open minded and loves to talk! It's really refreshing to see a teacher not put on the teacher act, and he does it very well. Class is redic easy, even if you don't show up, you'll still prolly get an A+. Couldn't be a more awesome dude teaching an easy as hell class. TAKE IT! Hes straight forward with you too. He doesn't require a textbook. He gives you the tests and quizzes online and his notes are straightforward. You must get the notes if you don't attend or you will fail. If you have the notes there is no chance of failing his class. recommend if your looking for easy A ...Continue reading

    Jake's a cool guy - he has a lot of stupid guy comments, but you eventually see past that and see that he's a good teacher. He is super laid back and he is absolutely hilarious. The tests are beyond easy and straight from the notes. No textbook and basically no work necessary. Definitely take this class if need it. There is no textbook for the class, and nor does he take attendance. If you're a needy learner, Jake is NOT the professor for you. Every class is revolved around taking notes, and lots of jokes in between. Highly recommend typing the notes and not hand-writing them. ...Continue reading

    Jake is straightforward from the very beginning. He literally gives you the answers to every question on the test. Such a funny guy! He provides his students with all of the material that will appear on his tests and gives clues on what information to study. Although the subject of geography can be tedious at times, his witty comments make the class bearable. As long as you are prepared for the tests, you will do well. ...Continue reading

    AWESOME PROF. take him for a super easy A. Go to class and take his notes. He has some on hold in the library if you really need to use it. He is the most random person ever.

    totally offensive and obnoxious. He knows a lot about geography, but the only grades all semester were test grades. He tries to be funny, but comes off as rude sometimes.

    SHE IS A TERRIBLE TEACHER!!!! Incomprehensible, rambles about geologer and volcaners cannot teach...SHOULDN'T BE TEACHING ANYMORE!

More updates to come.... ...Continue reading

    I recommend taking this class to anyone looking for a super easy science gen ed credit. He's extremely into his field and his passion shines through his teaching. He does that thing that the newer professors tend to do--grade really tough. His HW's are worth 3 points and if you don't write some schloarly work, you'll get a 1 or 2. Test's aren't too bad. I'd recommend. I would recommend this professor to anyone looking to take Geology 101. ...Continue reading

    I really liked him in the first few weeks but then I thought he was an ok prof. He lets you take the test 2 times and you can do the homework until you get 100%. he really tries to help you if you have a question. The classes really aren't that bad and he posts every lecture online. The labs aren't that bad either Even if you aren't interested in geology, Helmke makes it less painful. He's super lenient and actually wants his students to succeed. He's such a nice guy, it's worth taking the class. ...Continue reading
