I took his "History of Africa" class and it was HORRIBLE. I am warning you people... DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. I don't know how his other classes are but this class was dreadful. It was NOT interesting, exciting, educational, or anything else remotely pleasant! He is a nice guy but his lectures are extremely dry and confusing. There is a LOT of memorization and the midterm and final were pretty hard (3 essays each). My T.A. was a nice guy too but he sucked. EVERYTHING about this class was painful. I didn't even think it was that easy of G.E.

AVOID THIS CLASS AT ALL COSTS.

Had Professor Matsumoto for AAS10. I thought she was a fairly good lecturer and articulated her thoughts and ideas well. The lectures on plantations and agriculture got a little dry but overall I enjoyed the class. My TA Jane was pretty awesome and I actually decided to become an Asian American Studies Minor after taking the class.

The class isn't too difficult as long as you go to lectures and discussions. The readings aren't extremely difficult and are usually narratives so it's not too dull. There is a midterm and a final. Professor Matsumoto gives you a study guide with about 6 or so questions and she chooses 2 or 3 of them to put on the test so you get to prepare before hand. There's no reason you shouldn't get an A!
