Hist121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Least favorite class. He goes on, even when class ends. 3 tests (open note) which means a lot of stuff is covered (keep organized). Bring a laptop/record. Write as much of what he says down. The only thing we used the book for was to help start research for our one paper. What the book says is different from what he tells us in class.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Probably the most boring class I have ever taken. I suggest using a laptop to take notes or you won't have a hand left after writing all of his notes. His tests are open notes, but that didn't make things easy at all because of the amount of info he gives you. Good luck...

This professor turned my interest in history on to full speed ahead. I now research and write surveys for National Register of Historic Places for the US National Parks

HIst200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class has the most boring lecture, he laughs at his own jokes which no one else gets. He talks a mile a minute and jumps around so much your notes are so confusing. I'm a good note taker but it makes open note tests hard when you have information in five different spots.

HIST 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Wachtel knows his stuff, but his classes are pretty boring. They are 100% lecture and the tests are open note - if you can take notes you will get an A. The subjects could be made to be much more interesting if there was some give and take or just some excitement on his part. But if you don't need/expect that, then you will be fine.

For a weekend class it was worth getting up at 6 a.m. to go listen to him and explore the st. louis area. I have taken two of his classes and plan on taking more!!!
