    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is really nice and the class was interesting to me! We watched videos and the work wasn't too hard either.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights had to be the videos we watched and the images she showed us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your work. She gives weekly quizzes and if you miss one, it could hurt your grade.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    His Lectures are incoherent, and His Grade weighting was Lazy, there are only 4 assignments which are worth 25% each. His lectures are hard to keep up with, which does not come lightly from me as I normally learn better from lectures than anything else.

    Course highlights:

    Apparently Andrew Jackson, who is most known for brutally relocating the Cherokee people brutally in an event known as "The trail of tears", is a great man worthy of much respect. Seriously though, the highlight of the class was the end.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get on his good side, act as though you treat every word from his mouth as gospel. He curves grades more for students that stroke his ego.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because although the subject itself isn't ecstatically interesting, the professor is great!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was making connections and remembering intricate details of how one thing related to another.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Went to my professor for help a lot; via office hours and also email. Go to every class! Participation counts and also really helps! Extra credit also helps a lot! Take advantage of extra credit as much as you can!
