    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor provides amazing and insightful lectures. He has a narrative style that is similar to his history book. Don't miss class because you will miss a boatload of information you can use for the essay exams. Highly recommended

    Course highlights:

    wow there was a lot of writing in this class, which I am better for now. The essay exams were scary at first but now I feel accomplished. Stoff is very thorough on history, wars, and politics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over notes prior to exam and try to make the si sessions and reviews if possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures are very interesting and Dr. Ernst is a really funny and cool guy. He's understanding and wants what's best for his students, but he isn't a pushover. His insight into history is profound and he really knows his stuff.

    Course highlights:

    I am taking this class as a freshman, and I have learned how to study from a textbook and how to write en essay for history. It has taught me the value of keeping up with classwork and not procrastinating (mostly because I don't keep up with the reading and suffer accordingly).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE STUFF. Seriously. Read it. Before the class. Listen to me. Read. In all honesty, you'll get a lot more out of the lectures if you do the reading before class, and the tests are over the reading as well as the lectures, so don't leave all the reading to the last minute. There are only two tests, so it's easy to fall behind in that. Also, there is an essay due a couple weeks after the midterm. This year, it's on The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan, but I don't know if it's the same every year. Start reading that before the midterm, if you find time. If not, it will be a very stressful few weeks and you'll end up forgetting about it and making yourself read the whole book the day before and pulling an all-nighter to turn it in on time (not that I'm speaking from experience here) (I totally am.) Overall, you can do well in this class if you put in the time. I recommend going to your TA's office hours, because they're the ones grading the tests and essay.
