  • An engaging, compact course that relates the study of geology to basic chemistry and physics knowledge and discusses plate techtonics. I watched most of the course at 1.5X speed, which was comfortable for me.

    This was an excellent course and the presenter is very good but I would advise speeding up the video 1.5X. If you do that, he is absolutely incredible and is a great presenter. I couldn't be more satisfied with what I learned. You have to stay with to the end when it all comes together, then you'll understand the whole world a lot better.
