Dr John Renton, from West Virginia University, is another story, though: He is personable, knows his material extremely well, and presents it in a manner that engages the viewer. He seems quite comfortable in front of the camera and has virtually none of the annoying mannerisms that some other Great Courses presenters have. He seems to be the kind of instructor whose class one really would want to attend. WVU has a winner here!
The topics are covered well, the graphics are quite good, and the organization is quite good.
I plan to do some reading about some of the topics and then view the videos again--the course is that good.
I have not seen the printed text--only the DVD.
I don't know what grade Dr Renton would give me, but I give him an A+.
One of the benefits of the Great Courses is the ability to revisit the course, or just individual lectures, for a refresher on Geology. By getting the DVDs, and streaming, I can watch any of my courses on either my portable DVD player or on my iPad whenever I want to. I highly recommend the product to anyone with an interest in the Earth and how it works.

I have looked at this course with longing for several years, but at a price of $300.00 plus I could not afford it. I was thrilled to discover yours at such a great price.Published 18 months ago by cka
