I really enjoyed this class. I didn't know what to expect going into it as it was one of my first upper division courses. I was pleasantly surprised with the result. She has good well organized lectures and she can draw from personal experiences in China. The tests are extremely fair both content and grading wise. The research paper is very open ended, choose something your interested in and you can get a lot out of it, plus it's graded relatively easily. I would highly recommend this class if you want to learn more about China.

This class was especially rewarding as I came out of it with a pretty solid understanding of modern Chinese history and how China emerged as the country it is today. Prof. Zackey has years of experience in China and it shows through his passion and insight in class.
The tests require you to know the material very thoroughly, with an eye for particular details, but this pays off in the end because you come out of the class with an impressive understanding of the country.
Grade is based on a map quiz and two scantron exams, although he explained that his exams are usually in exam form but opts for scantron if the class size is too large.
He posts slides online, however they have minimal text and the test will ask you details he mentions in lecture but not the slides. I learned my lesson after skipping several classes before the midterm, however went to every class after the midterm and managed an A in the class.
