    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would personally recommend the course... with a different professor if there is another one that also teaches the course, or if it's with that professor try and see if the class is available face-to-face rather than online. The professor is a very tough grader and did not give advice on how to improve. Also, the tests were on several chapters at once and they asked about really minor, unimportant details.

    Course highlights:

    The subject itself was fairly interesting and the textbook was also pretty easy to understand. The course is on US contemporary film. We got to read about the history and concepts used in films. We were also assigned pretty good films to watch and write about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the chapters assigned and do everything you can to understand and memorize as much as you can. Write on the book's margins summarizing the paragraph's main ideas. Also, take notes and write down definitions. Try and make it relatable if you can, maybe try and do this by relating the concepts to ways you've seen them being displayed in films you've already watched.
