    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is essentially a "how to use google" course you spend the entire semester forced to work in groups that may or may not be helpful. He forces you to use EndNote whether you like it or not. In addition the teacher is extremely disorganized and tends to change things at the last minute. We were forced to attend the recitations by quizes over things covered in them, only 3 points but still it was a lot of bother for a 20 minute recitation where all the TA did was go over upcoming due dates and explain the most trivial processes of the class. In the end however, it was a very easy course and the teacher is super lenient with grades.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how important having a good group is when working on group projects. We collaborated on almost everything throughout the semester and were able to verify due-dates with each other. We even would proof-read each other's papers by sharing them through Google Drive. Probably the most important thing I learned in this class and maybe even the whole semester is how much easier a class is if you connect with your group members and take advantage of each other's strengths and weaknesses.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The exams are literally word-for-word questions from the quizzes. Plus you get both sides of a (hand-written) sheet of paper for the exam. Just copy down all of the quiz questions, and you will ace the exams for sure. Also don't stress too much over the written assignments, as long as you meet the major requirements from the rubric he is very lenient with grades. If you are studying for the exam as long as its a week or so before the exam and you ask the teacher he will open up the quizzes again for review for the exam, great time to copy the questions down. I didn't read the material, and could usually thumb through the chapter quick enough to find the answers for the quizzes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Sympson is an overall kind and robust man, he definitely makes the class worth attending. I strongly recommend this class to fellow freshman because it teaches you how to properly research and build strong arguments to write a paper as well as giving you the confidence to present and work in a team.

    Course highlights:

    The best part is working in the groups and I personally have learned the different research strategies and that good team members will help you out if you fall behind or if you get confused.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always finish within the deadlines and do not leave your group hanging.
