I wouldn't take this class again. It was an easy lower division class, but it wasn't very interesting. All the texts and movies he used were extremely outdated (when he could turn the VHS player on). Don't waste your time if you want to learn something valuable.

I was surprised with how much I learned from Hom after reading all these reviews. He's not a bad teacher at all; very informative, knowledgeable. He is pretty damn boring, especially during a 3 hour class, but the topic itself was interesting. Papers based off the reading, but he doesn't give a minimum or maximum page requirement. Hard quizzes.

Prof. Hom isn't too bad, but it's just his way of teaching doesn't seem to excite much students. He seems like a very nice professor but his methods of engaging students doesn't work as well. Asking for an 6-10 page paper and a presentation isn't too bad. You can just wing-it. Overall, he doesn't care about attendance till it's close to finals.

This teacher is really boring. he has a deep voice so it makes people want to fall asleep. the Class is 1 hour and 15 minutes long and it is overall easy. BUT there are not that much total assignments. so missing one is pretty crucial. You can get by not reading anything. the final project you might have to atleast skim through

Prof hom isnt as bad as everyone says.His personality is bizarre and has quite a bit of an attitude but his class wasnt hard.just a lot of reading you can get away with not reading everything and random presentations.that was pretty much the scary part,random calls to present especially if you didnt read the materials.speak alot for good grade.

Worst teacher I've ever had. Not helpful at all. Doesn't respond to emails. Harsh grader. Only lectures and bases all quizzes on them. Super boring puts you to sleep not matter how hard you try to pay attention. Overall fail. Don't take him.

This guy is an embarrassment to SFSU AAS professors. Were to begin? 1.He avoids to look you in eye at any cost(lack of confidence?)2.If you disagree with him he won't respect your opinion, he'll bash you during your final speech and give you a bad grade. I don't have enough room here to say how AWFUL this guy is. AVOID HIM AT ALL COST

You will learn nothing fr this class! I took this class b/c I wanted to learn about my ppl's history, instead, I learned absolutely nothing. He asks rhetorical questions and he doesn't explain anything when it comes to assignments. If you email him a question, he will not answer you and to top it off, he will call you a kissa@@ He needs to be fired

Avoid at all cost. You will waste your money and time. I wasted the whole semester sitting there for an 1 1/2 hrs. He is useless, doesn't help at all. When he asks the class if they have any questions, it's really a rhetorical one. If you want to learn about Chinese Americans, do not take him. You'll learn nothing.

Stay clear of this sinking ship that is this teacher. This has been my 2nd semester at SFSU and Marlon Hom is easily the worst, uninspiring teacher I've dealt with so far during my academic career. I took Chinese Literature with him JUST FOR FUN, which turned out to be completely ironic, cause he is a bad, boring teacher. Grading system is whack 2.

OK guy. Bad teacher. He will make you fall asleep even though he tries to be funny. Kind of mean.
