    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a good class to take when you first start out in your college class taking career. The professor gives lots of notes, and handouts that are very helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned just how important note-taking is. I also learned that missing a day of class is detrimental, because the next day that you do come to class you will more than likely be lost.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it!!!!!, The professor is quite a character, and I enjoyed learning the material with her, and i'm not that big of a history fan, so I believe that is saying something.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    History is not my strong suit, thus I have a tendency to struggle in this subject.

    Course highlights:

    My professor gave great lectures over the import information that needed to be covered by the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE BOOK!!! Keeping up with the chapters in the book make studying and following along during lectures that much simpler.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend it. Not because of the material in regards to what is supposed to be learned, because history is quite simply history, but because of the fashion in which my specific professor handled it. Though she did seem to know the material, she put very silly spins upon the material and often went offtrack. For example, she shared to us one theory concerning how Teddy Roosevelt and his ability to win the war through the intervention of extraterrestrials. It happened fairly often. She would also use our class time to rant about our grades, the grades of her other classes, etc. Take AP History in high school and you'll learn much more.

    Course highlights:

    As I said, the typical material wasn't bad; the history of the United States is very interesting. We did go into depth concerning presidents' personas, especially that of Andrew Jackson. Plenty of our essays requires us to take sides upon a matter and explain our side. For example, we analyzed the well-known masters of capitalism through two lenses--robber barons or captains of industry--and wrote how we though they were "bad" or "good".

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read the book. Honestly, you could ignore everything said by the professor and not take any notes (as long as you didn't mind listening to her lectures about lack of participation) and still pass if you read the book and knew your material. It's history, nothing new about it.
