    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it is very simple. Most of the work is reading short 10 page stories and answering questions about the protagonist, antagonist, and plot. It is a very introductory class and an easy A

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was how thorough Professor Reckling was. She really understands the stories and can break down the plot into terms that students can understand. I would recommend this class. There is no easier class to take in college!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The tests are not multiple choice; they are all fill in the blank. Make sure to study vocab and reread the stories before taking the tests. Although the questions aren't that hard and she isn't that hard of a grader, without knowing the stories thoroughly, it is hard to put anything down. Take notes during discussions!
