    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The exams are writing intensive so there is a lot of studying but Proffesor Duffy gives all of the resources to make an A in the class. Readings are required but she deliberately chooses readings that are interesting and thoughtful rather than dull and boring. There was an online quiz every week. It was ten questions with a time limit of thirty minutes but you could take it as many times as you wanted until it closed.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the textbook. Proffesor Duffy chose a text book with a very "left" opinion integrated into it because her lectures have a very "right" opinion so students were able to see multiple perspectives and the book was much more interesting than just informational text alone. The reviews were long but they were a major help. There was nothing on the exam that wasn't in the review except for the bonus questions. I was able to learn mush more that was I did in high school. I actually took away knowledge from the class. I especially learned better study techniques since studying for the class is a must if you want to pass.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read everything, even the text that isn't required. Make a PowerPoint out of the review to help yourself study. What I did was have one slide be the event and the next slide be the information so I could print the slides at six slides per page and cut them into strips that I would fold in half and either staple or tape it. That way I had instant flash cards because the event name would be on one side and the information would be on the other side. She puts the reviews in alphabetical order so it is best of you reorganize the events chronologically. That way you can remember an event based on the ones that came before and after it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you a lot about the presidents that you most likely did not know, it is surprising and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were definitely the personalities of each president and their beliefs and customs. I learned that President Lincoln did not intend to free the slaves, he just wanted to better the union and if that meant freeing them or not then he would do whatever it took.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to go over the notes, lecture powerpoints, and review over the textbook each week after lectures. Making an outline for each essay topic also helps. GO TO OFFICE HOURS!!!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Johnson is a wonderful teacher with very engaging lectures and overall great information in every session in his class. I loved the atmosphere and his teaching style.

    Course highlights:

    The entire year was a highlight. I've never spent so much time entertained by a teacher and engaged in a history lesson.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly suggest getting a study group together for this test and opening a google documents page to the entire class for information for the tests
