    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Schaeffer is a very crude professor with a dark sense of humor. Students either tend to love him or hate him. He is especially biased against Running Start students so if you are one, definitely don't say so. He grades very harshly and the only reason you go into class is to listen to his lectures and get your questions answered. He tends to go on rambling tangents.

    Course highlights:

    I don't remember an extremely large amount of history from this class that I do from other classes. Expect to only use your textbook and read it at home, then sit in lecture for 2-3 hours.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't worry, Schaeffer's class is not impossible to pass. I think I passed myself with a C or B (which he considers "above average"). Just work hard and keep yourself motivated, manage your time well, and DON'T skip any of the assigned readings. You might be tested on it. Good luck.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While the course material is certainly interesting, the dry style of both the reading material and the professor makes it difficult for students to adequately learn and remember material.

    Course highlights:

    Basically the best part was receiving a hard-won A on my second exam after tons of studying.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes. Take TONS of notes. And do try to differentiate from when the professor is actually covering the class material and when he's giving background info you won't need to remember.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures were concise and easy to follow. Furthermore the book work itself was informative.

    Course highlights:

    Survey of the political, social, economic, and intellectual forces involved in the foundation and development of the U.S. from pre-Columbian America through the Civil War.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to take as many notes as possible as the smallest details my come up in exam.
