GEOG425 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

I LOVE her. I took an upper level geog class with her right after switching majors to geography. She understood when I struggled bc I sat down & talked to her about the change & how it was only my 2nd geog class. A LOT of work, treated the class as a seminar. LOTS of discussion, be prepared to talk bc everyone is req'd. Some childish busy work.

GEO145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

TERRIBLE! Be prepared for childish group work, insanely long study guides, and assignments worth too many points that she grades too hard. She is one of those professors who will call you out for going to the bathroom, DO NOT TAKE!

GEOG 145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

We also needed ID# 9780061580376. She is REALLY into her work. Her study guides are useful if you take the time to do them correctly. They're just off your notes and mini assignments. She does give a lot of reading. She also gives easy follow-up reading quizzes where you can use the book. I haven't read either book and aced her class.

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

She gives alot of work, and homework. Grades differently than normal, which sucks because you do alot of work and the points dont add up. You take 4 test and there is a whole page of fill in the blank on every test.. and alot of open-ended questions that you have to answer.

GEOG145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class is terrible! As you see, it is a 100 level course, and she honestly does treat it as though it were a 500 level course! Be prepared for 6 page long study guides and "reflection assignments" that are 4 pages long and only 20 POINTS! Seems nice but amount of work for a class I don't "need" is too much!

I've had Dr. Parendes for 4 different classes because I learned so darn much from her. She isn't the easiest, expect a fair amount of work and give it a good effort, you will be rewarded. I only wish I could take her for some other course! Very knowledgeable, very kind (don't take advantage of her meek and mild manners!)

Geo145 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very clear professor, she explains everything very well(to the point where you really don't need a textbook). Class can get boring, homework is given. But overall, she is good, she does care about your grade, and she will take her own time off to help you; even without you asking for it.

Very caring. Class can be less interesting at times if your not that into the class i.e. if your taking it for a core class. Is very understanding and is always available for help. If you need an ethics course or taking this class for your major I recommend Dr.Parendes.
