    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was difficult but Professor Bower is extremely thorough. His tests are long and challenging but he gives descriptive study guides that give an exact outline of what will appear on the test. The study guides force you to prepare and apply the readings and information you've learned in class in order to succeed. For me, this caused a lot of the course information to stick.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Bower spends a lot of time on each portion of the course. This was enjoyable and helpful when we were in that section but it did not allow time for us to reach modern history. He spends a good amount of time on Pearl Harbor and does a helpful review on reconstruction for those students that did not take US History to reconstruction. He does a great review of the Roosevelt presidencies and often references different period of time even those before reconstruction to explain how certain events come about. For example, he describes all history as being a cyclical process in which every event in time will impact and influence future events. This was a helpful was to view the timeline of our history as it can occasionally be difficult to keep track of the exact order of events.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this course if you are anxious to learn and willing to work hard for a good grade. Getting an A is possible but you have to put in the time and do the readings as well as keep up with the smaller homework assignments. Getting a good grade on a test demands extensive studying and dedication. However, you will get out what you put in and in the end leave a more well rounded and intelligent student.
