GOVT 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

as far as i remember all his tests are taken from the online homeworks for his government classes, i can imagine he gets them from the publisher. Just do the homework a day or two before the test until you get them all right. do this, you should pass.

Gov 2306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Took Dr. G for a summer 2306 course and enjoyed every minute of it. You were given a clear sense of the standard he expected from his students and with enough effort you will do well. Make sure you stay ahead in the reading and come to class and I promise you'll do well.

GOVT 2304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Tests were pretty hard... I was in his very first intro to pols. It went well. Because it was such a small class I appreciated the individual attention he was able to give each of his students when it came time to write our paper. Wish more instructors were like him.

GOV 2305 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Gottemoller is great! I have taken both him and Clark for my government units. Out of the two I prefer Gottemoller. He really cares about his students and is approachable. I was shocked how young he was too. No crusty, coffee-stained bearded man here. He very easy to relate to. Coursework is bearable and no more difficult than Clark.

I really enjoyed this teacher and the research paper was easy. do all the online homework and take notes. Yes, he goes off on side notes, but he keeps a boring class interesting. Great guy!

Texas Gov. Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I love this guy. He is funny, helpful and cares about getting people involved in politics. He only has one research paper for the whole semester and his tests can be easy, as long as you do your homework.

Gov 2302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Gottemoller is definitely the first professor to ever show me how to truly write a good research paper and he actually let's you email him every single rough draft you write and he checks it. I really appreciated that he was so anal about papers because I am now a more confident writer. He gives a lot of extra credit and he's a pretty cool dude.

GOVT2302 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. G's online course is self-explanatory; thoroughly read the chapters, take the tests online (careful; they are timed!) No extra credit, no makeups. Lowest test grade dropped. Discussion board participation mandatory. He's very intelligent. Take in summer online, NO ESSAYS! Be an adult, you'll make an A.

Govt 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr.G really cares about the student, as long as you try he will meet you halfway so you can do well. I had to miss a week during a summer semester and he was very understanding. There were funny youtube videos, keeping the class interesting, helping teach the material. The class is set up so if you aren't a good test-taker you can still do well.

govt 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Relatively easy. do the online assignment and read the book. prof. Gottemoller is funny in a sarcastic kinda way. the lectures are ok tries to make it fun and keep you interested with up to date events at beginning of class. there's a lot of "youtubes" which at first can be annoying. test are easy but he is strict on the paper. took both 2301/2302

Govt 2302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Although this was one of my better classes this semester. I retained most of the material form the online assignments. You will watch govt related youtube videos which makes time slither by. It's a more independent learing style you have to choose if its right for you.

GOV 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His class is NOT all about youtube vidoes. We don't see one everday and when we did they were government related. You actually have to work or you will not pass, it is not a blow off class. I almost learned the hard way, make sure you start the paper for 2301 early. He doesn't take attendance but I showed up every day I could, thats how good he is!

Govt 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Gottemoller is a great professor. He keeps things very real, and has a unique way of forcing students to think outside the box. As most have reported, he is very fond of youtube videos, but they are all related to current events and politics, but the commentary is priceless! Looking forward to having him for intro to political science!

GOV1-2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took him for gov 1 and 2 and all I can say is take him! All the Youtube videos and class discussion make it worth it. His views on attenedence is you spent the money you attend at your discretion but make sure you have a friend in class. He does not take attendence. Overall a good teacher and it's always Dr. Gottemoller:)

Govt 2301 and 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took Dr G. for both govt classes and got an A in both. All you have to do is show up for class, do your homework and the paper and you will have no problem with his class. Yes he is into you tubes and current events but thats what make the class and Dr. G interesting and unique. One of my two favorite profs at Del Mar!!!!!!!!
