Culture and Power in Late Imperial China
Winter 2018 - Good class! Professor is very organized and experienced with the material. The tests are based on the lecture material, so it is important to attend the lectures. I would say the midterm and final questions are quite fair, you should do fine if you take good notes in class (he also provides study questions for the final). There are 2 essays based on the readings, which are not too difficult as well. He uploads all the required readings, and you could find the books in the reserve, so you don't need to purchase any books.
Fall 2021 - Doctor Wong's class involves attending lecture where he rambles off random topics that do not correlate to the class and then writing 500-750 word papers per week and a 7-10 page final. But he prompts for these papers are jumbles, do not make sense, and often you do not know what you are answering since the lecture was tangents and you do not know what is course content and what is not. I never missed a lecture and received a B which is frustrating. It isn't worth it
