Of the three semesters I've been at UWF, Dr. Zumbro is the best history professor I've had so far. Sometimes gets off topic, but he is insanely knowledgable on Nazi Germany. Pretty cool guy. I can see why his courses fill up the quickest during registration.

I LOVE DR. ZUMBRO. He is amazing, and knows his stuff! Tests come right from the lecture topics, and his papers are easy and count for little. You learn a lot, and the stores he has are awesome. I had WWI and Nazi Germany and this summer and fall will be having Maritime history and French revolution. I can't WAIT!!!

Amazing teacher! He knows his information, and he has neat stories which made it easier to remember. Gives a midterm and final, and a paper on the topic of your choice. LEARN THE LECTURE NOTES! That is the key to passing his class. define the lecture notes, study them, and you will pass his tests. Both tests have 1 essay question also. Easy though

Eesh, so may critical comments. Dr. Zumbro is a fantastic historian and instructor. It's not his job to entertain, it's to teach. He's a wealth of knowledge and very kind. So lay off, people - if you discipline yourself, you'll be successful in the class.

Instructor's tests teach nothing. The man knows his stuff, but he's too busy drilling for dates and names. Nothing is learned in this class. Another typical instructor with a PhD. I had such high hopes for this class too. Don't take his class. Do yourself a favor.

Not a tough class at all. Take good notes, make your own timeline, and look them over weekly. No research paper. An easy B.

I would say that Zumbro is the easiest history professor at UWF. Most history professors require a kidney and a research paper but he doesn't. We have a guy in our class that can imitate him perfectly which makes the class a little enjoyable. FT WALTON BEACH CAN YOU SEE THE PRESENTATION! If you take his class you will hear those words everyday.

Zumbro's classes are fairly easy. His exams come straight from the lecture topics he provides you with. He doesn't assign a research paper. You just have a mid-term and final exam that consist of fill in the blank questions and a essay question. But if go to class and pay attention you will have a good idea of what the essay question will be.
