    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you, overall, on how to become a better writer. Once you finish the class, you will be an extravagant writer compared to what you were at the beginning of the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about using more rich vocabulary and figurative language while writing different types of writing; for example: narratives, and profiles.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, try your absolute best and always do your assignments.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was really though grading-wise, and didn't like most of the ideas that the class came up with when it came to writing a research paper. I spent probably thousands of hours working on revising papers, only to have to revise more stuff in a new revision that was fine and not noted as having to fix in the last revision that I turned in.

    Course highlights:

    I did become a better writer from it, but overall, it wasn't worth taking.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Please do yourself a favor, and make sure you don't get Geraldine Jacobs. I really wished I dropped the class, and she grades super hard...to get an 4.0 in her class, you have to have a 95%, so I missed out on having a 4.0 for English because of that, since I had a 92% overall.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it but be sure to actually gain interest in the material that he or she lectures towards you. If not, you will get lost and not wanna be dedicated to the material and will either fail, or be hanging on by a thread.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of writing on a specific assignment, is the background history you can learn and retain. It allows you to want to know more and research and incorporate your thoughts on the event, or even refute the assignment based on what you know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be organized as always and don't wander off and away from the topic. Try to gain interest and learn something from the lesson. You never know when you will need the knowledge that was handed to you from the course, into future reluctant undergraduates.
