ANTH270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B-

This guy is a joke. I have no idea how he is employed at a University. Only textbook m/c questions that contained many mistakes. He doesn't answer emails, he appears generally sick, has difficulty speaking properly. Really a waste of time 4 a Uni level class. Grade 9 high school was more useful! No idea how he remains employed!!

SOCI230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This was my second time taking with Dr. Dewan. Although attendance was not mandatory, his documentaries shown during each lecture were comparing to watch. Also, prior to each exam, he gave us study topics for each chapter. But, since his exam format was multiple choice questions, it was somewhat hard to get a high grade. I got an A- in the end!

SOCI230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took with Dr. Dewan twice this year. I found that he had high expectations to his students. Although attendance was optional, reading each chapter and taking good notes according to the study topics given played a key role in the entire semester. Don't be lazy; take study notes as many as you can! And, try to do his 3 bonus questions in the end!

SOCI230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is my second time to take with Dr. Dewan. However, I found that his teaching approach became more vague than before. Also, his three exams were getting tougher and tougher, especially his second exam which was 10%. Moreover, he gave us 100 multiple choice questions for the final exam. However, his study topics were pretty unclear and confused!

ANTH202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Although Dr. Dewan's mother tongue is not English, he works very hard and loves teaching so much! If you really want to learn rough knowledge about the field of anthropology, you may take with him because you can learn a lot from his lectures. As to his exams, he will give you relevant study topics. But exam questions are somewhat tricky and random

ANTH202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

True, he has a thick accent and his lecture style leaves something to be desired but he is a genuinely nice guy. You can bring as many hand written notes to the exams as you want. You could copy the entire textbook word for word if so inclined, but you don't have to because he gives you a checklist on what will be on the exam! You don't even have to take notes in class because he puts them all online, you just have to print them out! You can't get any easier than that! The easiest A+ EVER!

ANTH202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is the easiest A+ on the planet! He's not the greatest proff but could not possibly make it any easier 4 u...yet ppl still complain... YOU MUST go to class to watch the movies as they are on the midterm and final but that's the only reason to go to class. Anyone who complains about this proff obviously thought the classes were irrelavant...

ANTH202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The first rating of this prof & class are right on! This course is easy, interesting and it will lighten up your course load during the semester. As for the prof, well he's not great at lecturing, but watching the short videos presented in class do help. You can bring your notes to the mid-term and final too. A GPA booster for sure B+ or higher!!

ANTH202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

All we really did in this class was watch films. Attendance was not compulsory...or even necessary really. Overall a boring class. He is a nice guy but a terrible lecturer. Very easy class..no essay..3 exams..all multiple choice and true/false.
