HIST399 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. knows everything, but strayed from the point alot. He was boring and the text was difficult to read. HOWEVER, the exams were extremely easy. He basically gives the answers in class. Papers were fine. If you're looking for an easy upperlevel class, take IHHIST 399 with Prof. Whitcomb and you might just learn some history along the way.

Hist01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I love history, but man this guy is the classic boring history professor. Took this class for fun but had to drop because it was unbearable. He talks softly, was often irritable, and although I hate to say it, is too old to be teaching. He is very knowledgeable but has a hard time reaching to the students. His lectures always contradicted the book.

hist200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took a special topics class with him at 8 am. He's a nice man, and knows just about everything because he's lived it. He does ramble, and laugh to himself, and have a hard time hearing... etc. If you like history, and can learn on your own and focus he's a great professor.

HIST290 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

God is this man boring... but he knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING. I've never met a person with more knowledge than him. If you can bear the boring atmosphere of his class, you will definitely learn a lot. If you have wicked bad ADD, switch out quick.

hist161 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

By far the worst class that i had every took. He talks very quite, @ time spaces out and it seems like he is having a conversation with himself on a topic. tends to laugh to himself as well, then when no one else is laughing he snaps out of it and goes back to lecturing. Horrible class, boring, grade is based on 3 tests.

Hist111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a horrible teacher. He just stands up there and lectures and goes off onto things which don't make any sense and don't really seem important, but who knows if they will be on the test because his tests are crazy hard. If you can avoid taking a class with him, AVOID IT!!!

I had him for 8am classes my entire Junior year cause he only offers them at 8 and 9am. He was terrible. He put on movies that had absolutely no relevance to the course and then complained when we wanted our class time to be spent learning things we need to know for the course. He feel asleep one class. I got an 89 in the class and it was only a B

HIST 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very boring professor. Doesn't know how to teach his class and cannot answer any of his students questions. He wonders off topic for the complete class and when the exam time comes he rushes through the review questions so he can give the exam.

US HIST Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very smart, but does not know how to hold an interesting lecture. Goes over exactly what will be on the test the class before, so it's easy enough to study for. One hint: write everything you remember about a topic and you'll get full credit.
