"Tests are tough"

Grade is made up of quizzes and test. That's it. All material is online but not up to date. Super boring. You have to understand the material on a deeper level. Way to hard for a gen ed.

AN 210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Yes, this is an "on-campus class," but EVERYTHING is graded online. All of his tests are graded for him from Blackboard, so...nice effort Professor. Don't miss an online test every Friday, or you're screwed with his "make-up" tests in his office.

AN210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Useless. Didn't really lecture. Told us we could learn more from Wikipedia and Google than him. Probably true. Had questions on the final relating to material we never covered. Getting my first B since I started college.

All of the "hard" comments are probably from first-semester freshmen who expected to be able to sleep through school and get passed along like high school. He enunciates and repeats things to the point where he is basically holding your hand.

AN210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is a very cool class.He's a good teacher and the tests/quizzes aren't hard as long as you read the assigned reading for that week.Sometimes he does get a little off topic if he starts on about Native Americans,but that's not so bad.

AN336 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy, fun class... once you realize what it is he wants... as a warning, he does seem to prattle on about Native Americans quite a bit, and with little provocation, so be prepaired. Also he doesn't use the +/- scale, which is a bonus, i think.

I found the subject matter to be interesting. Dr. Obermeyer himself was pretty interesting as well, and knew his stuff. He's also not bad looking ;)

Anth122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I was in his anthropology class. Very easy. Just show up to class. Exams are tough but he allows makeups. If you have common sense you should be able to pass this class with flying colors.

Cultural Anthro Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Obermeyer is very well versed in this subject. He has a passion for anthropology and it shows in his lectures and preparation for class. He is very organized and while his tests are difficult, they are fair. When you earn a grade in this class, be it pass or fail, you know that you earned it.

I think maybe it was just me, but his class was hard and i didn't understand what he was talking about and what I should have been taking notes over.

Dr. Obermeyer has flaws in his teaching method, but is overall a good teacher. He gives you a solid idea of what you should be learning. The material in the class is not difficult AT ALL, and in my opinion should be easily grasped by students if they can pay attention for 3 hours a week.

AN 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher ever. Not helpful at all and does not try to help you to succeed in the class. Plus very boring teacher so makes it hard to keep attention in class.
