BORING and weird dude. Class is really easy, although the 10 page paper for a class like this is ridiculous. Wouldn't recommend.

yes, he my be very boring in lecture, and attendance is taken through clickers. However, he gives the TAs a study guide of EXACTLY what is going to be in the test. class is based off of 2 non cumulative tests on terms from the book and study guide, and a 10-page paper due before break that is based on any topic in history. boring but easy class!

Extremely boring. When I say extremely, I mean it. He went on tangents and never covered the material; his TAs ended up doing it for him during recitation. He treats lecture like he's a prison guard - if you talk, you get called out, immediately. He commands his TAs to also be on the look out for people doing other work...like really? STAY AWAY!

Okay guy, very hard to understand. Course had very little content, mostly just talk about the world situation

It is extremely hard to hear Dr. Barbour in the lecture. No need to take notes. Just go to the recitation and his TA will teach you everything you need to know. His tests are easy as long as you go to the recitation. Good professor.

Dr. Barbour is a great person. Very nice and funny at times. Lectures can be boring and seem random, and attendance is mandatory (taken with clickers). Our only grades were two tests, a 10 page paper which was very free and flexible, attendance, and recitation. Tests were about two thirds lecture (study guide) and one third text vocab. Decent prof.

He was very nice and interesting but he went off topic a lot and he gets distracted easily. He was kind of hard to hear and understand too. Make sure you really pay attention in class because the exams are mostly on his lectures. Be prepared to write a 10 page paper but the good thing is that you can choose your topic.

He is boring many times.But,his class is not based off of a text book.It is based off of the slideshows(posted online) which are usually 10 times more interesting.Easy tests and quizzes.One presentation which is really not difficult to do in a group of 4-5.One research paper in which you can choose/make up your own topic.He brings artifacts in too.

Such a BORING class. But! I must say, Warren Barbour is super intelligent and there were some points when his lectures were not worth sleeping through. Come to class (they do attendance randomly which can really help your grade). If you have a good TA, the study guide is practically GIVEN to you. Textbook is not needed. Simple A.

Very informative class especially for those with an interest/looking to work in Mesomerican archaeology, virtually a life time of experiences in the field covered. Very nice professor, very accommodating though a bit hard to follow at times.

This class was wonderful. Not only did we learn the material from a first hand recollection of seeing the actual places, but we learned about the methods and problems that they faced during the digs. The paper was freeform where we able to write about what we were interested within the topic with typical guidelines. Great professor. Brilliant even.

Not hard class at all only if you do well in recitation class. Midterm and final are totally up to the study guide given from TAs and the vocabs from textbook. Its sort of annoying to write 10 page termpaper; but you can get an A with such little effort.

Do not take his anthropology classes. First he started the semester with no syllabus.. then he did not assign a midterm, or he forgot to.. Then he assigned a final 15-25 page paper with ZERO guidelines/expectations. I seriously do not not how he is still teaching. I learned nothing. He threw a party at his house with underage drinking. That was fun

DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO WRITE A TEN PAGE ESSAY. This teacher is the only world civ teacher that assigns a term paper. It is torture. If you get him its an easy A but who wants to write ten pages during thanksgiving break?

This was one the easiest and stress-free classes I had all semester. His lectures are torturous but his class is an easy A. TA's are awesome and are very helpful. Make sure you do well in recitation. His tests are easy. Don't procrastinate on the term paper though...I learned that the hard way. But anyway, it's really an easy A.

Lectures are absolutely pointless. 10 page paper, I don't like him and his voice is so high I hardly understand what he's saying/talking about.

One of the only World Civ teachers that assigns a 10 page paper. Steer clear honestly.
