"Would take again" "Big time extra credit"

Lillian Spencer is a great professor! She really enjoys her field of study and that comes through in her lectures. Lectures are kind of long, but this is an interesting class. Make friends with someone sitting next to you, so you can work on labs together. Chance for extra credit. It's basically all tests, so take good notes. NO BOOK REQUIRED

Dr. Spencer is one of the best teachers I have ever had. It is true that the lectures are rather long, but when you sign up for a two and a half hour class, what do you expect. There is a ton of information to learn in this class so note taking is extremely important. Dr. Spencer is incredibly patient and helpful to her students. Take her class!!!

One of my best classes I've taken at GCC. Dr. Spencer is amazing and knows what she is talking about. The class is interesting and you will learn a lot. The labs are fairly easy if you take all the notes. And the lecture notes are all online at your convenience. The test were tough, and a lot to study, but if you take good notes. You will be fine

This class wasn't horrible, but I really didn't care for it. The lectures were ridiculously long and the tests are difficult. Now, the professor is super nice, but I definitely found myself not wanting to show up because of the long lectures and boring PowerPoint slides. If you're actually interested in this kind of stuff, take this class, but if you're not interested, don't bother.

This is one of my favorite teachers at GCC. Very smart and interesting. The class teaches you a lot about human evolution, and she makes the class interesting and clear. You really need to study the material because its a lot. Try flashcards and you should be fine. Her laps are easy and help you on the test. Definitely recommend her.

Has long lectures but they are easy to take notes on and available online. Labs don't take too long and they are pretty easy. The class usually ends early so that's really nice. Provides study guides for tests. The tests are the only difficult part of this class because you need to tediously memorize facts but otherwise good class.

Very thorough of the material. Sometimes it seemed there was a lot to study before an exam, but if you study all the power points and assigned reading, an A is very easy to achieve. Sweet and patient personality.

Lillian Spencer is brilliant. Honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. The class was fun, she was a blast to have and taught amazingly! Sometimes it'd seem it was too much info and I was lost, but then I'd review and it turns out everything she said stuck. I would recommend her to anyone without a doubt!

Fantastic teacher! The class is so easy to pass and she really puts passion into what she is teaching. Labs are weighted very heavy but if you just ask her for help it is nearly impossible to not get an A on every lab. Tests are little more difficult, but not hard if you study. Oh yea, NO FINAL!

GREAT TEACHER. Her class is so interesting and all of her material is easy to understand. Labs can be confusing but she helps you every step of the way; she truly wants you to comprehend the material. She is so passionate about this subject that you will be too! This class will change your perspective on the world, in a good way!

I adored Professor Spencer and her class. She really puts complicated subjects in a simple, understandable light without glossing over what makes it all so amazing and interesting. She's a lot of fun, there's a lot of cute baby primates, and she's easy to talk to if you have more questions on anything. She even asked a geneticist a question I had!

Very helpful teacher. She expects you to work at a level higher than most teachers, but she works with you. She definitely knows what she's talking about and she clearly has a lot of passion for the material that she's teaching. STUDY and you are sure to pass.

ASM104: Bones, Stones and Human Evolution. THought it would be boring, but it was fun, interesting, challenging, and now I can answer more Jeopardy game show questions. She found cool youtube videos on anthropology, let us handle artifacts, and provided EXCELLENT STUDY GUIDES for the exams, making it easy to know what to study to pass. Excellent.
