Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
If you do not feel that you can do well in History like me, this class will make you think otherwise. Although it's just an hour (or hour and a half) lecture every class and the reading is long, if you are present every class and pay attention to the book, you will definitely succeed. I've always enjoyed history teachers telling the past through story, and I've been lucky enough to have Professor Buzzanco as my first history teacher.
Everything there is to know about history after the Civil War to the present. Professor Buzzanco covers all areas of history like the significance of an event and how something occurred and affected us. When he talks about an event during the early 1900s, it's was very detailed and he made sure everyone in the class (all 250 of us) understood what he was teaching.

Advice for students:
Listen to his lectures and do the reading. In my opinion, I wouldn't take notes during the lecture, but just listen because since he wrote the textbook he assigned to us, taking notes from the book is very similar. Also, he only gives you three tests: 2 regular tests and a final. The 2 regular tests require the definition and significance of 3 out of 6 terms given, a short answer, and an essay. The final requires two essays. (He gives you a study guide so you know what to study and what the format of the test will be).
