Material you should know for any geotechniques class

Old Classes (taught within the last 5 years or so):


  • Email Etiquette: Guidelines for writing to your professors
  • About college, some info for students
  • Oh gods. All of us need to take this bullshit class.
  • Some notes on plagarism. More at wikipedia.
  • How to cite papers, websites, etc. All the major styles are covered here. If you're not sure which to use, I suggest APA.
  • If you don't know how to touch-type, you will be in for a very long quarter (and career) spending way too much time trying to type.  The time you spend learning will pay for itself in one semester.  Typing tutors are avialable online, or you can buy one for around $20.
  • Also, for those of you who have never read a guide to netiquette and cell phone etiquette (the do's and don'ts of communicating electronically), please visit wikipedia's site - which includes links to many other pages.
  • Radical Cartography. Cool maps and stuff (goto "Yummy"). Worth a browse.
