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.

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!

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

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.

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.

I can honestly say that this is the worst professor I have ever had. Her quizzes are unfair, you have to pay tons of money for the lab book that she wrote, and she is disorganized. I do not just dislike her, I hate her. Please for the love of god do not take this class

Nice, well intentioned person. Her quizzes were unfairly crafted so that if you get one wrong you get them all wrong. she tells you what will be on the final just study that hard. she can get a little screechy in lectures too but if you need help dont be afraid to ask.

Prof. Pauli is a very funny, likeable person. Her lectures where interesting and informative. No midterm, and final was easy. However, we never got the graded quizzes back, and grades were posted too late to improve later quizzes.

The lectures are interesting, and you really do get a feel for a material during class time. Or so yo think. When you work on the quizzes at home a lot of the questions come from seemingly nowhere, and suddenly you don't feel like you know any of the material. Labs are a killer as well. No tests, though, which is nice.

Worst prof I've had at GW. She doesn't know how to teach and is a very unfair grader. She honestly doesn't care about her students and enjoys giving failing grades. Also, she is very intimidating and seems to get easily frustrated at any questions.

After comments here I was really nervous about the class, but they're wrong. Class was so easy. I never opened the book and didn't study for anything and got an A-. You have to be retarded to not get at least a B in this class. All the people complaining probably did poorly because they skipped lecture and failed quizzes.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET AN A IN THIS CLASS. I truly wish that I'd listened to the other comments about this professor and dropped the class when I had time- my GPA is f-ed because of this class. Do not take this class.
