HIST 2713 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. V is history professor at NSU with the most mixed reviews. It seems people either love him or hate him. I liked his classes but I also a history major. Be sure to show up to every class and participate in the discussions.

HIST 1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

NO CELLPHONES in his class, show up everyday since he takes attendance. Keep all your notes for use on his tests because they are all "open notes". Also, he requires you to bring your book and use it in class. Very thick accent and somewhat difficult to understand at first but you get use to it.

HIST1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Dr. V is a fantastic teacher. He has a deep knowledge and love of his subject. Make sure you answer all the book questions, and write down every powerpoint slide. Show up to class. Turn your phone off. If you do these things, you'll make an A no sweat.Quizzes are easy, paper grades are lax, and he'll even critique it for you before it's due. 10/10

HIST1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Dr. Vovchenko is among one of my favorite teachers. He's very jovial and obviously loves his topic, and he's funny too. The quizzes are open note, so if you write down the powerpoints as well as take notes for the questions from the books, you should be fine. His accent isn't difficult to understand, but he does speak quickly.

HIST1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is by far my favorite teacher I ever had. He is incredibly nice and thoughtful while expressing intelligent and critical thinking through what is being studied. If you ever get him as a teacher all you have to really do to pass the class is to pay attention in class, take notes, and TRY!!!!

If your not a reader you will be. Expect 20 page reading assignments each class, some you may understand and some you may not. Each class you answer two questions, make sure you have answers, they make up the quizzes/midterm/and final. 10 paper is not bad, he doesn't grade too hard on papers. He is easy once you understand what he wants.

HIST2723 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love his classes. Compared to the other professors he is the nicest and funniest. You really have to read the book and answer all the questions so you can't blow the class off. Easy A if you're prepared and do the work.

HIST1113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a summary of this class: It is reading intensive,and if you don't read and can't answer Vovchenko's questions he will embarrass you in group and/or class discussion. Read, read, read. Take LOTS of notes on the individual text assigned question. Don't let your cell phone make a peep in class.

He's as nice as he can be. Answer EVERY question in the book and write down EVERY powerpoint slide.(If you don't you can't pass the class) Attendance is crucial to your grade and you won't learn much bc the book isn't a typical history textbook. If you devote time to the homework it's an easy class.
