Class was pretty easy, but it's very necessary to read the book. You can do the study guides but if you don't read your test grades will fall. 3 exams and a 5 page essay. Also, you're expected to learn all the countries of the world. This wasn't my favorite class, but I ended up doing better than I expected

Nash is a quite nice person and professor. That said, in order to succeed in her class, it's required that you put forth the effort to read all that is assigned, so if you hate reading, don't take. Although the book is more useful than class, she sometimes brings up stuff that will not be in the book, and will be on the test, so make sure to attend

Her lectures are usually pretty boring, but the class is relatively easily overall. Not too many assignments, but you definitely need a textbook to fully understand the lectures.

Ms. Nash was a good geography teacher. She was very passionate about what she was teaching. She does not take attendance but it is wise to go to class. You definitely have to study for her tests but she makes it somewhat easier by posting up study guides.

This is not a bad class at all. It doesn't require much work or studying. I got an A- and I only studied the night before each test and I did the paper the night before it was due. The class is kind of boring, but it's a pretty easy gen-ed. I definitely recommend it.

HATE geography!! I skipped a lot of her classes-they seemed pointless at the time, but REALLY wish I hadnt. She is SO passionate about what she teaches which makes geog so much more interesting. DEF TAKE HER, but study hard & don't blow off the class, its worth it in the end. 2 TESTS (HER STUDY GUIDES ARE ON BB) 1 PAPER/PROJECT + FINAL = not bad!

She's very enthusiastic about her job and is pretty nice. The exams aren't too hard as long as you do the reading. In this class we had to do a day of field work and the paper we had to write sucked!

She is so passionate about her work. She knows so much about what she teaches and makes a boring class interesting. She tries to help the students and really cares a lot.

quite possibly the most boring class to sit through. she is passionate about what she is teaching but it is almost impossible to listen to what she is saying because it is so boring. the tests aren't too bad. final not cumulative. i wouldn't say to stay clear but if you can get a better class or professor i would recommend it.

She teaches the Geography class like an anthropology class because shes an anthropology professor. That would be fine except I took the class becuase I wanted a Geography course, not Anthropology

you'll rarely find a teacher as passionate about what she teaches as Dr.N thats one amazing thing about her, she can't help but tell stories and engage the class. she expects a lot of you on the tests. her study guides are hell but they prepare you above and beyond for her exams. its that class you love&hate because its interesting but hard! STUDY!

She's a little strict, but just pay attention and you'll be fine. I absolutely loved her and highly recommend her since she's so passionate about what she teaches and genuinely tries to get to know all her students.

Nash is a great professor! She really enjoys teaching and encourages people to participate even though most of the class just sat there and stared into oblivion. Just do the study guides and you'll do fine on the tests. research paper was graded easily.

learned SO much from this class. nash is really into the subject and is passionate about teaching it. if you go to class, read the book and DO THE STUDY GUIDES for the test you will get a good grade. 10 page research paper is the only drawback. otherwise the class was amazing.

Really nice professor, she definitely knows what she's talking about and is very passionate about the subject. Not too hard, just go to class, take notes, and read along with the texts for some extra details. Study guides outline pretty much everything on the test.

nash is an awesome prof who loves what she's doing. totally interested in the topic so it def make is a lot easier to learn the material. lectures basically straight from the book so either go to class or just read the book. study guides are really good in preparing for her 100 question tests. one paper due at the end and extra credit ops

Good teacher. Do not need to buy book. But need to go to class and take notes on what she says that are not on the slides. There are work book asignments that are lengthy. Tests are fair. An A is possible if you take time for this class.

Really nice lady, GPS is not her best subject, though. Be nice and involved and she'll go out of her way to help you out. Try to avoid telling her she's wrong, she's not very good at admitting her mistakes. Offered re-take for midterm because noone did well. She expects alot out of students, don't take this class unless you are a hard worker.
