Dr. Maurer is one of my favorite professors at Georgia Southern. He is very passionate about what he teaches and will make sure you learn. His clicker questions come straight from the notes so go to class to get easy 100's. His tests are straight from the notes as well, and he also posts study guides. Great teacher and great class!

Dr. Maurer is a great professor. He is so interested in not only the material but making sure you are prepared for real life. Tests are easy if you study and he gives partial credit. Quizzes and assignments are EXTREMELY easy. (Seriously 100s on everything without even trying.) Go to class, take notes, and you're golden.

He is a great teacher and his tests come directly from his notes! He uses power point so it is not strictly lecture. He also does many different activities with the class. I would highly recommend taking his class!

CHFD2134 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I absolutely LOVED this class! One of the most interesting classes I've ever taken. He lectures every day but I looked forward to them because he makes them so interesting. Easy participation points, just bring your clicker! Notes are straight forward but his tests are difficult. Be sure to use the book to study. I got a B! Definitely Recommend.

Dr. Maurer LOVES this class, and is very enthusiastic. Clicker quizzes are an every day thing along with online quizzes. It is a lot of information that you basically have to teach yourself but as long as you read and do the reading guides you'll be fine! Tests are easier than you think. I got an A! He truly cares about his students.

Interesting class! Dr. Maurer is very into what he teaches and is open to ALL comments and questions. He's very clear on the material. I would go to class for the notes, because they are not provided. Exams are scratch-offs (like lottery tickets) and they increase your average test score tremendously. Great class, great professor. i recommend.

Dr. Maurer is very precise. You will start class on time and not 30 seconds later. If you're late, you are either tardy or absent, no exceptions. Also, if you miss more than one or two classes, you will fail. He's very strict on attendance. Also, you must be able to follow directions extremely well. If not, you will still fail. Good luck!

Great Teacher. Child Development (CHFD 2135) was a difficult class but I learned a lot. Go to class everyday. Do Reading Guides and study. The toughest class I've had at GSU but with work & his help it is manageable. I got a B. I would recommend the class & him! I also had him for Family Development(CHFD 2134)Easy, lots of extra Credit. Made an A.

Great Teacher. Gives very clear notes, provides detailed study guides for exams, makes class interesting, and attendance is optional (but i recommend going to class bc pwr points are not provided) Do the extra credit quizzes!! I didnt take the final and I came out of the class with an A and I really learned a lot! AWESOME TEACHER!

If you do all the reading guides and go to class every day then it's easy to get an A. He is overall a good professor and has your best interest in mind. Just be prepared to be bored.

His outlines only help sometimes, he assumed I don't know how to study. We don't agree on anything, and I am considered a bigest because I am a Christian. Sorry, but I am not going to stop saying bless you. Homeschooling is a legitiment form of education and its a baby not a fetus. You have your views I have mine, why cant I voice mine too?

class is pretty hard but if you go to class everyday and take good notes and REVIEW THE NOTES EVERY NIGHT you'll be fine. Try to do the quizzes online right after class since its fresh in your mind. He is really easy to talk to and he makes learning economics really fun. He's a pretty cool professor overall I enjoyed him thoroughly!

FEE-I usually only get B's and A's but I am so proud of the C in his class.Yes the class is hard but guess what so is life. He really does spend a lot of time coming up with ways to help us students and he really wants you to pass but you wont if you dont go (duh)!! POGIL is awesome and really makes you understand, and it makes class go fast

I had him for Child Development and ended up dropping the class. I am an A student. I have had 4.0s for the past 4 semester. I strongly disliked his class. I made a 74 on the first exam and went to go talk to him and he said compared to the rest of the class I did great. I'm not a C student. I wouldn't recommend him as a teacher.

Hated his class! He is so rude. If you don't agree with him, don't say anything because he will make you feel so stupid in front of everybody. I recommend not taking him for anything!!!! I worked so hard in his class and still got a D. I was in his office all the time trying to get help with the material. I was a straight A student until him!

The class itself was really interesting, I actually looked forward to going. He doesn't take attendance, but you HAVE to go to class if you want to pass. You take soo many notes and they're very in depth, and you have to study for the tests because there pretty difficult. He comes off kind of arrogant, but you just have to get used to him.
