HIST289C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof. H. is a fun guy, and the lectures are interesting and about one of my historical periods, but I dread this class. We never talk about the main point of the course, and it only ever comes up in the test and essay questions. I honestly have no idea what his expectations are.

HIST289C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

As long as you do the reading or at least use SparkNotes, you will receive a good grade in this class. Prof. Holum doesn't want his students to fail. The test questions are given in advanced. Yes, there is a lot of reading, but this is college. Expect that. The TA gives quizzes each discussion which are fairly easy. All lectures are posted online.

He is pompous, petty, and his classes are painful... Avoid working with him at ALL costs!
