Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
For all those interested in themselves - not in the "Selfie" kind of way but more fundamental - this is the course! It gave a lot of answers, even when solely one question was being asked. How come so? Well, Professor Beck spun out his thread about a multiple cultures and their cosmogonies, myths and rituals and thus we were presented a great deal of new perspectives coming from all over the world. In summary: this is the course for those eager to learn about man, his role in the context of the world and how their own role as men and women in the West became defined.
What I found very valuable of this course is that it clearly showed that we are not alone in this world and other cultures carry a lot of richness with them too. This is of course a truth that we are told and that we repeat from a very young age, but, taking this course when I was 15, this was probably the first time that I personally realized it too.

Advice for students:
Do the reading! They always say so and a lot of us never do it, but I would really recommend to stay strict with it while take this course. Not because you can't pass it when you don't, but because your colleges will gain a lot of value and so will your experience!
