HONR48 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Zimmerman is absolutely great, one of the best professors I've had. Really chill guy, has a good sense of humor and is very helpful if you come to him. Despite having a 2.5hr class discussion was always interesting and engaging, and he is always open to new ideas. Great text choice too. Definitely take his class if you can.

AMAZING PROFESSOR! So interesting and knowledgeable. He is really helpful and gives interesting assignments. I was actually inspired to pick up a new language from how interested I got in European history from his class. Definitely one of the best professors here. Take a class with him.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class was well-taught. Professor Zimmerman managed to get students engaged in discussions even in a class of 70 people. The midterms and finals were easy, as long as one attended the lectures and did the readings. The prof. is very open-minded and is willing to talk to students in his office hours. I learned a lot from the class.

HIST132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overall a great professor, very knowledgeable and passionate about German history. Attendance was mandatory and he created a seating chart for a 70+ person class, which I thought was absurd. His grading scale is also a bit off, 94.5 is an A minus in his book.

HIST132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Attendance, even in 80 plus person lecture classes, is mandatory. He also can be a stickler about using laptops. Other than that, he is extremely passionate about the subjects he teaches and is very willing to see students at office hours. Sometimes he gets off track but he is a very fair grader and will talk to any student about their grade.

HIST040 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

While it's true that this class involved a lot of Philosophy, it was still an extremely interesting course. Professor Zimmerman is so nice and really knowledgeable. You'll learn a lot from him. My only complaint was that the course covers a lot of material, which made the cumulative exams somewhat difficult. I would still recommend it though!

One of the best professors at GW. He is passionate about the subject and always eager to help. Because he does not use a textbook, it is imperative that you attend every class (though the lecture are on iTunes). The way in which he frames history is ingenius. You won't realize how great of prof he is until after the class.

The lectures were well-organized and clear. However, the discussion classes were extremely useless, though attendance was mandatory. Prof. Zimmerman is very nice to talk to, and he has some refreshing generalization of the subjects. I think the Professor should have better TAs who know the subject well next time.

Hist40 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

i was pretty disappointed in the subject matter, the philosophy was not my cup of tea. there are also a lot of assigned readings, you can get away with not doing them but it helps on the exam if you did. zimmerman is extremely nice and helpful and i think he would do better in a discussion class rather than the huge lectures.
