    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a passionate professor about history and truly cares for his students in succeeding! He is a great man who is full of personality and makes learning fun! His exams is fairly straightforward and no traps, but you have to study! No homework! He is a popular professor and fill up quickly!

    Course highlights:

    This class I learned about World History from beginning civilizations till 1400s (or somewhere around there). The continuation of the course HIST 100B is from 1400s to Civil War Era. Dr. Freeman also teaches this course. I absolutely love that one time when the professor sang the France national anthem.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend the review session. He will give out some test questions/ answers! Take notes on the study guide because his test is based on that. Even though he only lists topics on the study guide, there isn't too much to worry as long as the main concepts are understood from text. There are 3 essay questions which you just need to write and fill up a whole page on the exam sheet to the bottom. As long as the information written is pertinent to the topic and everything is filled up, you will get all the credit. Writing big helps! Lastly, make sure you read or glance at the book before the exam if you don't go to class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is about the beginning of world civilization, but we start off the class with the very beginning, The Big Bang and creation of Earth because that IS how world civilization began. Our professor provides Power points about his lectures and goes into great detail about his lectures. We have quizzes on our weekly reading and highly graded on our midterm and final.

    Course highlights:

    One the first days or weeks it may seem like a lot of pressure and you might want to drop out, but Professor Markley is a great professor. I think the class really gives the students to overall perspective of a history class. Instead of starting when human species arrived on the Earth, he starts at the Big Bang theory, the creation of stars and the planets, and the birth of the Earth. Also another thing that makes this class interesting is the professor's enthusiasm about the course and his explanation of the concepts and terms help his student understand the material. His stories and advice about the two exams really help prepare his students to. As a student, I don't like history and English course since I suck at them, but this class is really interesting and learning about the Big Bang and evolution of the universe really sparked my interest. I really recommend students to take this course and not to freak out. JUst listen to his directions about the class and exams.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    His grading system is where things kind of worry students. He has weekly quizzes and participation is required. He gives out "bits of paper" and they counts towards when a student asks or answers a question. Students must get 20 pieces of paper by the end of the semester. Also the only other two factors that make up the majority and I mean MAJORITY is the midterm exam and final exam. Now since these two test are pretty much makes up your grade for this class, this is where most students stress over this class. However, in his syllabus he gives you the midterm and final exam questions and throughout the whole semester he tells you EXACTLY what he wants on the exams. His phrase, " Make a point, get a point." He does not care about grammar or similar sentence structure. This is not an English course, this is history. Just make a point by stating a fact then using examples and things you've learned from his lectures to prove that fact. I think what makes students not pass or fail the two exams is over stressing over the exams. Just attend the lectures and take notes and you will definitely pass.
