GEOL 1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B-

This class is harder than it seems. Online quizzes are extremely difficult, however the labs and scrapbooks should boost your grade. The final is open note, however I followed her study guide and my own notes and still received a C. It was not straightforward at all and she messed up my final average. She is very unorganized.

1001-10 PhyGeol Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you love your GPA, STAY AWAY FROM HER CLASS! She has been the worst class/teacher I have ever had at gwu. What teacher brings a baby to the exam room? Words cannot express how I feel about her. Even if you study, success if not guaranteed in her class! She is the Worst and you can tell she doesn't care about the students, even her TA is better.

GEOL 1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

LOVED this class, and I don't usually like science. Prof. Pauli is brilliant and lectures are always quite clear and interesting. The final is difficult but not unmanageable. There are LOTS of assignments, so if you fail a quiz, you'll have plenty of time to catch up. My TA was great. I heartily recommend this class!

GEOL1005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very passionate and reasonable professor. The lab can be really confusing but the concepts are not that hard. The final is open notes if you dont miss too many classes but what is on it is unclear. She suffers with organization, which can leave you confused and annoyed

GEOL1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I had this professor for the lab section of Geology 1001. I cannot recommend this professor. Although she knows her material, she grades the labs impossibly, and the final includes questions on material rarely discussed or clarified. Avoid.

I am taking her class currently while the online quizzes can be difficult you get two tries, attendnce is not mandatory but if you attend enough classes you get to use notes on the final. Elli knows the material and her powerpoints/videos help explain the material really well. Labs aren't too difficult, but don't let one person do all the work...

GEOL10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The online quizzes are hard, but if you work together on them you can figure out the answers. There are no exams or quizzes in class, but there is one final at the end. she also curves the grades at the end. Honestly really easy to get an A.

GEOL10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Pauli's lectures are interesting. Attendance is counted. Quizzes are impossible. Labs are annoying but do-able. Final is not hard but the format is a confusing joke. I do not recommend this class-take something else. It is not worth all the time, effort and stress.

All lectures are Powerpoints. There is only a final. What will kill you are the online quizzes that are incredibly hard as well as the lab final. Do not worry about taking notes in class, they have no bearing on the online quizzes or labs.
