Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
I was always interested in Japanese history, so I wanted to take a class on it if possible. Stalker's a pretty good professor, I think, as long as you do your work and pay attention in class. I go to her office hours sometimes just to talk to her about things not directly related to the course material. If you ask, she will help you with job search and things along those lines if you're interested in working in Japan.
It is essentially a history course, so expect history: religion, politics, economy, society, etc.

Advice for students:
Go to class. Attendance isn't mandatory but she does pop quizzes in the beginning of class, and these count towards your final grade. For the exams, she'll only give you a list of terms to study. Don't just define them; know their significance and the role they play in that particular time period. On the exams, there are always two bonus questions, and let me tell you: they are minute details she drops during lectures, so you either know it or you don't. The final paper isn't that bad, only two pages.
