"Respected by students" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests? Not many"

Great professor! Really knows her stuff and takes time to help students. Not a TON of reading or tests, but just show up and take good notes! Tests pretty much come straight from the reading and notes. Kind of a tough grader but is straight forward with what she expects. Will be taking again.

Her class is out of 100 points, the points that you lose gets subtracted and the number that is left is your grade. She was very helpful to me, esp when i thought I was failing, I didn't do good on all the exams. If you work hard for your grade then you should do fine.

INR2002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really good teacher in terms of enthusiasm and knowledge, but her approaches to both grading and, well, just being human are horrible. She has her own dinky little book that is used for class. Not enough of them existed for the number of kids in the course. The ones who paid for the book, but never got it failed the class and she didn't care.

INR2002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very tough grader, tests are made up mostly of short answer Qs and she wants very specific answers! She'll give you an F on a paper if she doesn't like your thesis statement. Real big on participation points and attendance! Made me feel like I was in a 9th grade class. Don't take her unless you LOVE the subject.

A pretty good prof. but she grades really hard. Questions on tests, quizzes and final are vague but she grades for VERY specific answers. Be prepared to read a lot.

Great professor very clear about what she expects from you. She is tough on citations but this is stuff that u should know by now, and if u don't then feel lucky that she's making you learn it because you'll use it through out college. Make sure to keep up with readings and take notes during discussions. Pam is a fun lecturer def engages the class.

Do NOT take Zeiser unless you have to. Tough, requires too much reading yet the exam asks for irrelevant information. OBSESSED with MLA/APA format. If you don't do it correctly or have a thesis statement, you receive a 0 for all work. Definitely favors certain students and unless you're participating all the time, you won't do well.

Difficult class, favors certain students over others. Extremely difficult with citations (MLA handbook won't even help you). Intelligent and engaging, but some people aren't meant to teach.

do the work and get an A. She is willing to help as long as you are willing to work. Not very hard know what's on the PPT, attend/participate, & you can get a B in the class w/out reading the text. Best professor ever!

Summing up Zeiser is simple-- Tough but fair. She clearly outlines everything and is very precise. The tests are pretty hard, and she expected a lot (too much) from the movie essay. I would avoid her if you do not have a Political Science or International Studies major.

Excellent teacher. Teaches using PPT, but not reading from directly and makes the class interesting. Attending the class and doing the req'd reading made the test easy. The textbook was helpful. I recommend her and would take her again.

Great Professor. Interesting lecturer, always willing to help. Multiple choice/true false exams are not easy, but not overly difficult either. One paper to write which was an easy grader. Dr. Zeiser is the best prof in the Political Science Department. I highly recommend her.

I took her international law class and had so much fun! she actually makes the topic interesting! Most of the time we were talking about genocide, and i learned a lot in her class.I'm a quiet type of person in class so i managed to speak up more but couldn't..But as long as you put efforts in her class (especially the papers) you will do good.

Pol. and Society in Brit & UK. Interesting class, clear teacher. She is a hard grader on the paper, but the tests are easy if you read and come to class. The debate was fun. I recommend taking this class with her.

She is pro-student. She loves student input during class, so speaking up is a must. She has a great sense of humor and loves to incorporate the subjects with current events. Learning the theories is crucial!! You will learn from her AND you will like her.

Great Class! I'm not a Polictical Science major so I thought it would be really hard but it wasn't. She makes the material so interesting I just remembered most of it. As long as you attend class and participate you will do well.

She is my favorite professor at UNF. You have to do the reading to do well but even if you dont do all of the readings you can still do well if you pay attention to the lectures. This was my third class taught by her. She knows her stuff and makes the class really interesting. Comparative Brit politics and Politics of Russia are really good too.

GREAT CLASS!!!! She is exciting, funny, and truly loves teaching this subject! I am going out of my way to take more classes with her this coming semester. YOU MUST READ in order to do well. And your position paper is an essential tool for your debate. Come to class with an open mind and ready for some fun and you'll LOVE the real DR.Z!!!!!!!!!
