Religion is not Philosophy & Philosophy is not Religion is Gambetti's fundamental error. Religion Studies, like Philosophy, is its own academic department with its own standards and terms. CSI does not offer Religion programs and is not a place were any professors ideas on Religion can be indulged with any seriousness.

She is not helpful. She give a lot of reading. I actually dropped her class because she wasnt willing to work with me. I need cc on movies and wasnt willing to change anything.

I was so looking forward to her class and instead I wished I never took it. Her projects make no sense nor did the reading material. She somehow when I took her class made Greek mythology somehow be related to a jazz musician. Also when she gives projects shes very vague and gets flustered when you ask her questions.

Great teacher but don't park your brain at the door, she will expect you to work and participate

In the end I earned a very good grade but I still wished I never took the class. Alot of work: a two page paper every week, at least 250 pages of reading a week, a book review, a 10 page final paper and 2 incredibly hard tests. Save your sanity. She is crazy and hard to understand. The tests are impossible bc she wants you to remember everything

She was very interesting and she made you think. I thought i did so well but i did bad on the midterm and final. It was extremly hard at least 10 people left within 10 mins of the exam. no joke. I didnt get my grades back till the last day of class. I should have dropped her and never take Gambetti. She is nice but don't let that fool you.

One of my favorite professors, she doesn't give slackers any breaks. If you do your work and don't try to BS her you will do well. I learned more about research from her than any other teacher. I think I have a crush on her ;)

There's a lot of reading and a serious artifact project.Also, trip to MET.If you keep up with the reading you should be okay.She's smart and it's an interesting class if you are willing to put in the time.

Prof. Gambetti is a brilliant historian. Lazy students or people who just want to be high school teachers can't handle her. They are used to very easy teachers. I think she is one of the best professors I have ever had. She wrote my recommendation for grad school. She is sweet, smart and pretty.

She assigns way to much reading for one over night assignment. She is tyrannical and seriously thinks that she controls your life and that her class is the only one that you have/is important. She does not help you at all and makes you feel stupid if you ask a question. I loved mythology before this class, now almost never want to look at it again.

Prof.Gambetti will show compassion to those who participate and work hard on their reading. She has a different sense of humor and you have to really show that you are interested in learning- must pay attention to what she says. You need to think for this class and pay attention to details. Essay exams. Take notes. Read alot. Be on time.

Professor Gambetti is a very tough professor because she expects you to know what you are talking about. She wants you to become intellects and really understand what you are learning in class. I have learned a lot from her class so far, but I'm petrified of her exams. Mostly essays and maps. Do Your readings or else fail. Recommended for S.M.

take this teacher if you want a D. She is incomprehensible and horribly mean. Insulting when you ask for help or advice, completely unapproachable. Her class was difficult to sit through. she brought down my whole GPA single-handedly.

ProShe is a very good teacher. The reason many student sdo poorly is because she expects alot. If you are looking to goof off she is notfor you. For the serious history student she is good.
