This class was tough.
This course taught my a lot and although it was a lot of hard work I think it was worth it. Carrier showed me early on how to take detailed lecture notes while the professor is spewing a million words a minute. There are no chances to zone out in his class because he doesn't use detailed lecture slides and he tends to move through material quickly. Aside from that, I appreciate that he showed me what a typical upper year university course would be like because it has prepared me for many of the courses I have now taken.
Like I stated above, I gained a lot of knowledge about the course material as Carrier is a very intelligent professor and he knows what he's talking about. It also gave me a taste of what a typical class was like and helped me prepare for all the other professors who did not use notes.

Advice for students:
You need to show up to every class and take detailed notes. At times it may seem like things he is saying are not important, but trust me, they are. Be prepared to put a lot of time into studying as he has a 40% midterm and a 60% final which are very detailed and quite difficult.
