ANTRO186 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Russ is a great guy and wonderful professor. I had him at Santa Clara University more than 20 years ago for a variety of anthropology classes and we're still friends. He's also a specialist in underwater archeology -- if you want to learn from one of the best professors in the country, take his class. If you just want an easy "A," move along ...

ANTH4307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One of my favorite professors. He knows his stuff. It's hard to take notes with him, though. Exams aren't that bad (taking notes is actually harder, since the powerpoint slides he uses only contain pictures) and he reviews before the day of the test. I think he cares about students and class is very interesting.

ANTH3304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's really awesome, but his class is challenging. He doesn't take attendance but if you don't show up YOU WILL NOT DO WELL ON HIS TESTS! You have to take extensive notes because his PP are just pictures and he gives incredibly vague reviews! BUT if you're a good student you should be fine!

ANTH4308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took this professor for both Indians of North America & Comparative Colonialism for both classes I got As. Indians of North America is the BEST course but Comparative was awesome too. HINT: He watches who comes to class and who doesn't and knows who is willing to learn. READ READ READ, and takes notes and U'll get that A u looking for. Good Luck!

Dr Skowronek knows his subject, he's energetic & funny which makes class fun (It helps 2 go 2 class, he knows who is willing 2 learn). He makes class work as a team, making every1 read a chapter or story...makes every1 write a summary, then every1 exchanges notes which makes it easy to pass class. He even explain what will b on test from summaries

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

If U like Energetic, & enthusiastic professors take him. Indians of North America class was a piece of cake. He repeats the same things over and over again. He sometimes offer Xtra crdt, take advantage of that.(Write down what's on the board & what's on his Power Points) EASY A & no need of reading the text book, only the 2 small inexpensive books.
