Fall 2018 - DON'T TAKE THIS CLASS. 2 hour lecture that is mandatory. He makes you sign in. His lectures are USELESS because the class consists of only the midterm and the final that are based off READINGS, not lecture. Midterm is two 5 page essays. Final is the same but he asks SOOOO MANY QUESTIONS that are everywhere and need to be addressed into a FIVE PAGE ESSAY. Also, after every lecture, he gives like 3 different 50-80 page readings :) . so in a week, you have at least 8 readings that are super long. Oh and also, he wants you to incorporate 80% of the readings into a 5 page essay :) (Impossible but ok). Depending on your TA, see how lenient they will be. Mine was a bitch. You only have ONE week to write two essays. Seems doable until you have 3 other classes to study for (midterms) or 2 other projects due that same week + finals week. This class stressed me TF out. I deserved an A but whatever. Don't take it. I'm not even one to ever complain about classes, but this one... just don't.
