HIS 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm taking his class right now and it might have been the best decision I've made. Not only is his grading system EXTREMELY fair but his lectures are actually interesting, and no question this guy is a genius. Take this guy if you want an easy A, but make sure you know how to take notes on lectures and not just copying off the board

EXTREMELY BORING! I never slept in a class before but my god was it so hard to stay awake in his class! He is not like traditional professors, he hates the grading system and would give everybody A's if he could! He definitely has his own grading system, there is no way you can fail his class! He only gives two tests and one paper.

HIS 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Super easy to pass. Never study for his exam and passed all of them. If you want to go easy take his class. The guy can be a bit boring, but he knows a lot about history. Never did use his textbook. Just listen to what he says/what he talks about and you'll do fine.

Very easy class. Must take notes because his tests are based on his lessons. Subjects were somewhat entertaining. I would recommend if you did want an easy A.

I got a d on every quiz and he still gave me a b so what does that tell you. I hardly showed up in class. There are only 3 30 question, T/F quizzes. The lowest you can get in that class is a b. If you failed two quizzes and get an A on the last one, that A is your grade. TAKE HIM!! I beg you

The class is a guaranteed pass, but do not take it only for that reason. Professor R is a great teacher and he does a great job at teaching. If you do the readings and pay attention you will actually learn something.

Professor Rosenfield is awesome. U in 4 a treat. Can get a bit boring listing to his lecture but can b very interesting as well. Basically 1 true or false exam, 1 page (summary) paper n a final essay exam in class. He gives u the essay question the class before the final exam day. If u take him consider yourself lucky cause he don't fail anybody.

His204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took notes and studied and got an A-. But the final was nothing he said would be on the test. He was all over the place. He did have one book requested but I am a global history major and that book does not help me. Sure I got an A-, however I will have to audit the same class, different professor or self teach myself what I need to know.

An excellent teacher that shift your thinking ability to neurological and scientific idea. He is great in showing you how humans are made up and true evolutionary person. Darwin theory and how the brain, mind and humans function then he goes in stories that help you remember history. 3 test, no texting plz. His class is informative.

hes a very nice guy, and just wants his student to understand the subject. it is a bit boring, since he just talks the whole entire class. if you have him in the morning youll probably fall asleep. but he tries to make it interesting. he wants his student to have good grades. i recommend sitting at the front of class if you want to hear him.
