    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject matter is honestly just not that interesting while you're in it. The key is only read what you need to. I've never been someone to promote anything less than over-achieving. But in this CORE credit that's probably taking up time from your major-specific classes, over achieving isn't necessary. Read excerpts of what you're assigned from each recitation to give you ideas to contribute to the discussion, but no more than a few pages-- compared to the 100 pages you're assigned. Study your butt off for the tests. It's all memorization, so pull out all your tactics-- flashcards, writing in green, etc. When it comes to the papers, utilize your writing skills. I found it easiest to schedule four hours on a freer night, skim the book you're writing about, create an outline, and then crank out the paper. Each paper took me maybe two nights and I always got high grades on them. Even without feeling like I was doing all I was asked to do in the class, I passed with an A!

    Course highlights:

    As I said before, while you're in the class, it's difficult to get invested in. But now that I've finished the course, I actually have a much broader knowledge of the classics-- including the Bible, the Illiad, Antigone, and many more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't trick yourself into thinking you can get away without writing well for this class. The better your writing is, the better grade you'll get.
