Great professor that is passionate about the subject and shows great enthusiasm. Really cares about his students and is more than willing to help out in any way possible. However, this class was hard as a GE. 90% of your grade is based off of essays, and the TA's are relatively harsh graders. However, do ask for help and you will succeed!

Easiest class you will even take at davis. He also seems to really love teaching and the subject, which is really refreshing.

Easy easy easy easy class. You just need the PowerPoints and go to lecture. He said from the beginning that his exams are made straight from the PowerPoints. He loves the subject as well. Amazing

Definitely one of the easiest class at Davis. Don't go to lecture or buy the textbook. Powerpoints are posted online and all the test questions are taken from there. If you memorize this content, you will ace the tests. Take this class! It's fun too.

Wonderful Professor! Taken a couple of his classes and he is a real joy to learn from. He has high expectations, but if you pay attention, study, and work hard, it will be to your benefit.

Brelinski has high expectations and he can be a very harsh grader. He is fair though and he is very helpful if you ask questions. He assigns a ridiculous amount of reading and he always gets behind in his lectures, but he makes up for it through the quality of them and his clear passion for the subject. The class was great and I will take him again

Very enthusiastic,tells the stories in a very interesting way rather than just regurgitating what the textbook says. Do the reading and pay some attention and you will get an A. Exams are MC, very straightforward. One of my favorite classes of all time, HIGHLY recommend taking CLA 10 with him.

Brelinski is an amazing lecturer with great clarity. There's quite a bit of reading, but you can get by with just his lecture slides. Tests are really easy if you memorized the material. Both midterms + the final were 80 multiple choice each, all basic recall questions. Highly recommend this guy as he does a good job teaching something worthwhile.
