Intellectual History of U.S.
History 142A is an excellent class with an excellent professor. We had an in-class midterm consisting of 3 IDs and 1 essay and an in-class final consisting 5 IDs and 2 essays. Both were based on lectures and readings and the questions were given out a week in advance. There were no papers or quizzes. The lectures were compelling while the readings were light. The lecture notes were available at the bookstore! This class was GREAT (and easy) and I highly recommend Dr. SarDesai. His TAs change from quarter to quarter and they only grade the IDs so that should not be a consideration. SarDesai grades all the essays and is very generous. I love him and wish I could take more of his classes because he has such dedication and wisdom.
