Lectures were super boring and the books we had to read weren't all that great. Don't take her class

Stay away. If you are in her class right now, get out. Her panties hang out of her jeans, she is boring, her tests are not based off of her lectures or book, so you are basically screwed for the tests unless you are a complete and absolute genious at history. Attendance is not mandatory, but it's completely pointless at the same time. Good luck.

She is not the best teacher. I would recommend looking for someone else. All she does is stand and talk about stuff that is often not even on the tests. Now granted I'm an engineer and took this class only because I have to, she really made me dislike going to history. She's also somewhat of a feminist and it really shows in her lectures. Bad prof.

Her lecture follows pretty much straight from the book. So if you attend class regularly and write down a lot of what she says, there is really no need to buy the book. Her tests are around 60 multiple choice and not challenging if you pay attention. Overall, kind of a boring class but not difficult if you attend lecture.

She lectured from minimal PowerPoint and the rest straight up lecture which got extremely boring. She was no help when I tried to talk with her in office hours and after I did poorly on my first test she basically told me there was nothing I could do quite rudely.

80% essay tests, 20% objective. the book follows her lectures almost exactly. Passionate about history but kind of a B*tch..
