COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
Dec. 16, 2020

This professor is really nice, but the material is kind of confusing. I took this class during COVID so it was online. We had zoom meetings where he would lecture with powerpoints (however the powerpoints basically were just photos so you had to listen carefully) and they were not recorded. The information is broad but the class is 50% midterm and 50% final. The midterm and final were short answer style with 48 hours to complete them. They were not bad and he graded fair (most people got A's-B's). I would take this class but be prepared to listen carefully to each lecture.

Ease depends on your background of the material and if you attend lecture. Prior to the course, If you have an idea of what went down from 1400-1700 across Europe, attend and pay attention to all lectures with notes, you can mostly skip the readings and you'll get an A. Still the reading's important to increase your historical knowledge in general.
If you have no clue about this period, I'd read the main textbook, though I don't think the documents he provides are necessary.
Exams were straight forward; in the midterm and final, the professor gave 4 essay questions and let you choose 2. The final was a take home version of the midterm, where we're given 48 hours to complete the exam and send it in email.

Sanjay's lectures were straightforward, easy to follow, and interesting. He adds quips and jokes every once in a while which animate the lectures somewhat. It's basically an info dump though so it can get boring.
