    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Professor Wiseman is very passionate about his course and loves what he teaches. His lectures are very interesting and he keeps the humor light and happy. This course did not have a lot of work mostly a lot of reading and a few writing assignments. If you complete the readings and stay on task this class is very easy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the rise of American world power and the growth of industrial America civilization. This course is is based on 1877 to the present years. I had a great experience in this lecture, it was only 50 minutes but truly learned a lot each class period.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you need to do all of the readings. The midterm and final are easy as long as you know the material. He gives key terms and you have to write short answers for them, this is easy if you know the key terms, if not its pretty hard to bs it. The essays are on questions that can be easily answered if you know the material as well.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is difficult, but manageable. To pass this class a lot of studying is required. Do all of the essays (only one is required, but the highest grade will be the one submitted), reading, and quizzes. While taking lecture notes, try to keep them organized, since that will be the only information you have for the tests (there are no slides, textbooks, or study guides for exams). The only assignments that are graded are exams, quizzes, and one essay.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of information about slavery, independence, civil war, and much more. The content amount is incredible, which requires a lot of studying.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reread your lecture notes, read the small chapter books required, and STUDY STUDY STUDY! Do not wait until the last minute for anything.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Passionate professor when she lectures the class. Not difficult class to take you do learn a lot of informational facts you might not have learned in high school.

    Course highlights:

    Learning informational facts that I might have never heard in high school.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the pages she assigns if you wouldn't attend the professors lectures. But either way if you didn't understand her lecture or missed something you didn't understand read the following pages she has assigned to read.
