    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very informational class and shows the not so good things that America has done throughout the years.

    Course highlights:

    This course really dives into the aspects of past American life that most classes will not even touch.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to always go over the power points more than once, and do not skip the class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Cook is a great professor! The power points are online and the lectures are very fun to listen too! The course really opens your eyes on the past United States problems! It gives you a different prospective on the United States!

    Course highlights:

    In this course we learned about the past mistakes U.S. has made. You learn subjects such as environmental history, 1960s assassinations, the atomic bomb, and slavery. Dr. Cook goes into more detail on these lectures and shows many interesting documentaries.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to always do the reading for the everyday Friday quizzes. The lectures are the test, so pay attention to the lectures! Make sure you buy the book! You will need it for the reading.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Randall is hilarious! But try not to distract him, he goes off on a lot of tangents and if you zone out, you might wake up at a different point in American history. He's a great professor that knows what he's talking about, you can tell he's been teaching for a while because he has no problem throwing out the plan for the day and discussing the news. Be warned if you have him during the election.

    Course highlights:

    I can't say I learned much from this course. US History is a personal favorite of mine and so I started class with a lot of background information that helped me through the class. I can say that Randall explains things in a unique way so you have a well-rounded understanding of the events that happened in our past, such as providing perspective from the "other's" point of view, not just from the "winner of history."

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down all his notes. All of them. Including the stars because, yes, those are verbatim questions that are on the exam. There is no way whatsoever you can fail this course so long as you show up, copy and review the notes.
