Spring 2022 - This class is overall pretty easy given that you receive an extra credit opportunity for every paper you turn in. Ex: the first exam may involve 3 mini-essays with 50 points each, and there's an extra credit question worth 50 points. So. you can see how just doing the extra credit can put you way ahead of the curve. I only went to 2 lectures in person, but Professor Macias records his lectures. But to be honest, you only really need to look at his slides then read to get an A on an essay. Your TA grades your papers and they were all pretty accommodating. The class gets easier as time goes by: the first exam had 3 mandatory questions, the second one had 2, and the third had 1 (all still having the 50-point extra credit question).
