Students expressed great satisfaction with Professor Gervers as an instructor, and felt that his depth and breadth of knowledge was a great asset. They felt he made distant subject matter very approachable. Perhaps owing to the wide amount of material covered, a number of students said they were lacking in guidance to know what to study or focus on at times, and felt the lectures were unable to encompass everything to be learned in the time available. Nevertheless, almost everyone reports this as a valuable learning experience.
