Winter 2016 - Professor Cole is a nice person, but not the best teacher. She assumes that the students know as much as she does. She says things like "obviously" or "everyone knows that this tribe...". The first half of the class is interesting, but then the second half of the class crams in a lot of useless information in an extremely unorganized manner. I would say continue to pursue the material because Ancient Egyptian History is interesting, but do so with a different teacher. You'll learn more.
