Hist640 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Egotistical, narcissistic, and basically useless. Very good at spouting off small detailed facts about topics that are irrelevant to the class. Hes not interested in engaging you, or teaching you anything. Use him for small details if you need filling for your paper, because trust me, he's definitely using you too

HIST 386 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hands down the worst professor at State. Incredibly boring and horrible lectures. He doesn't talk about the reading at all, but the class is east in and of itself. I didn't learn a thing, but I got a B+...

HIST389 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely outstanding! ADA teaches just a little bit over everyones head, but does so in a way that makes you want to understand all of the details that he is talking about. Amazing lectures. Assingments are light. You just have to be able to write a couple little papers that show you paid attention to the class. WELL WORTH TAKING!

hist390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Uh.. Disappointed actually. He is a very smart man. He is likeable. Having said this I must complain that he doesn't listen to students at all. He cuts even the brightest students off mid sentence. I regularly attended class and took very detailed notes, often 4 pages back and front in length, but when it came to the essays they were useless.

HIST390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. D'Agostino is one of the best Prof's at SFSU. Very passionate and extremely intellectual. Gives all kinds of perspectives in History and really challenges you to think. Head's up, though, he tends to ramble at will sometimes. But largely don't worry about it, it's him explaining some of his experiences in past events. Seriously, take his class.

Hist390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Good Prof. A little too easy on undergrads, a bit harder on grads. Also assigns text not used much in class. And can be rushed as term moves on but having said all that clearly keeps up on the current lit. and debate in his profession and entertains alternative opinions if they are well grounded. Overall: high recomendation only if you are serious

Hist01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great Prof. Impossible not to learn a lot from this prof. Very strong on entertaining alternate views and opinions. May not agree (probably won't) but treats serious alternate views if they are serious. Downside: a little to light on assignments espcially for undergrads. Needs to be little more demanding. Much harder on grad students.

If you're not learning in Dag's class it means you're not paying attention or doing the reading. He isn't everyone's cup of tea, as he won't hold your hand and you actually have to think in his class. He knows everything about his subject and is open to disagreements. However, you better know what you're talking about, he doesn't suffer fools.

HIST385 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. D'Agostino is one of the best History professors at SFSU and really knows his**** about European History. I would recommend him, he's very passionate. Heads up though, he tends to ramble. Other than that, take him. He's great.
