FOR HONORS 63W (Nabokov):

As a person, Mr. Stone has a stellar personality. He engages the class well and does a great job with keeping you interested!

The only thing negative to say is his grading. If you are looking for an A or an easy class, then stay away. Mr. Stone is completely subjective when it comes to grading and he barely gives you any guide on how to how to obtain a certain grade. For a Writing II course, he barely provides any feedback on how to improve as a writer and gives you one chance on each paper to improve. Even if you make every little change he suggests, he will continue to subjectively grade the paper and find other things to bash that he chose not to tell you on the first draft.

The material was interesting itself but the class would have been more enjoyable if his grading was not so random and subjective.

This is one of the best classes I've ever taken at UCLA. Take this class if you really want to improve your writing skills, research skills, and critical thinking abilities, and if you're willing to dedicate your time and energy to it.

There are small assignments, not very hard, but you have to treat them very seriously and show through your assignments that you've really worked on it. Always reread your writing to check grammars, word choice, etc. You will be given detailed grading criteria, so make sure to check each one of them.

Professor Stone is humorous, very considerate and willing to help students. He gave valuable comments on each and every assignment, which helped me to improve. Also, for the final paper, you will have chances to meet with Professor Stone one-on-one to discuss your draft. I found the one-on-one appointment most helpful, since he would give you a lot of great suggestions. Do prepare well for each appointment, and ask any questions or concerns you have.

I guarantee that you will learn so much from this class if you are dedicated.
