Professor Arnold is a great lady. You can tell that she really cares about her students and about her work. However, she is one of the most monotonous lecturers I have ever listened to.

Luckily, over half of her class is taught by guest lecturers- those who were experts on the topics we were discussing. This really saved the class, and helped people to remain focused on the presentations.

Her grading is based on a midterm, a paper (she gives lots of choices for paper topics), and a final.

I thought that her midterm was fairly difficult- and I have a 3.96 at UCLA. I got a B- on the midterm.

However, I got an A+ on the paper, and I knew what to expect for the final. You can basically predict the essay topics based on overlaps significantly with the powerpoints and readings.

The midterm and final were both a combination of MC and short essay/ answer. I thought that the questions on the midterm were a lot more specific and tricky than those on the final.

In the end I got an A in her class. Although it hasn't been my favorite class at UCLA, I thought California Archaeology was very interesting as a person who has lived in California my entire life. Overall, its a good class. The lecturers can be boring- same with the reading (but there isn't a lot), but overall its doable.
