Pretty easy, overall.
This course fills up really quick like all of Professor Douglas' other courses. The main reason to take this course is for the professor. He is so passionate about the subject and teaching students. The course itself is fairly easy. If you need an easy GPA booster take this course or his Anthro 2A. It's really easy to take notes in this course as he himself writes the notes down for you to see. Professor Douglas also shows a lot of educational films that are really interesting. His tests come from everything learned in lecture and reading. There are no trick questions and if the majority of the students fail the question, he takes the question out. Also, he gives a lot of extra credit on the exams and throughout the course.
I think this course is especially important for people who are not unfamiliar with countries, ethnicities, and cultures outside of the US. It was very interesting to learn about South East Asian cultures. Their native stories and history is so fascinating. Also, you can get extra credit for going to cultural festivals, such as the Flower Festival in Little Saigon.

Advice for students:
Study your notes, don't sleep during the films, and you'll be fine.
