Meh. He's a stereotypical history professor in a lot of respects. He's really into his research and its applications, he's awkward as hell with undergraduates, and he'd very much rather you be a Ph.D student so he can make it rain with information on you.

His papers are actually less frustrating than most people have said here - but most people that have posted here are used to the five-paragraph or one of its variations taught in CA high schools. He's brusque, frustrating, and infuriating if you're not a history major or if you want to pull a gentleman's C.

That said, don't take him for a GE. Take him because you don't know anything about Filipino history or how the US used to rule it - he's good for that.
