This course was challenging in many respects, the majority of which were unrelated to the difficulty of the material itself. The professor was difficult to follow in lecture due to the quiet, mumbled, and monotone voice he consistently used to describe the material. The powerpoints were poorly organized, such that one could not follow the order of topics from main idea into detail; the main ideas were unclear and lost among hundreds of slides containing extremely detailed points about the examples, theories, readings and authors. Although the class was broken down into topic subsections that were outlined at the beginning of the quarter, the professor did an extremely poor job with relating new information to those main topics such that they were lost among the sea of information presented. This class seemed extremely interesting prior to stepping foot in the lecture hall and regrettably has fallen short of every expectation I had for it. The only saving grace was that the final was not cumulative and the exams are curved, but I don't feel like I learned anything in this class.

I would never take a class with Sears again. He is extremely nice and offers help to anyone seeking it out, but the class is extremely difficult to the point that you lose motivation half-way through the quarter. Both his midterm and final have an insane curve, and thats because his exams are ridiculous. I feel like this professor has high expectations of his students, but these expectations are quite absurd. The only reason I chose this class was because it sounded interesting. Since this is my first quarter at UCLA, I had no idea about BruinWalk before choosing this class. Now I know to never let something like this happen again. This class has ruined my quarter and I feel like I am walking out of the class not learning anything.
