"Tests? Not many" "Lectures are long" "Hilarious"

He's very passionate about the subject, and interrupts himself a lot because he just has so much to say about the topic. Not a very interesting class, but not too hard to follow along with

HIST2220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

My aunt took this course 25 years ago with Dr. Potter and highly recommended it to me. I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone who is even considering taking this. Lecture material was extremely interesting, classes were only 2 hours a week, and you can get a high grade if you make an effort. Dr. Potter is the greatest professor at UWO. TAKE IT

HIST2220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Potter is a great teacher. Although the information is simple and easy, this is definitely not a 'bird' course because there is a ton of information to know. But, if you study effectively and frequently your almost guaranteed a good mark. Importantly, you do NOT need ANY background in history to do well in this course.

hist of med - hands down best course i've taken during undergrad. prof potter is amazing, he seriously knows EVERYTHING and is so enthusiastic about what he teaches. looked forward to every class! lots of memorizing - names + dates (which i'm usually not a fan of) but it is doable. can do VERY well if you put in the effort. definitely recommend :)

A very engaging and interesting lecturer! Course Manual is simply terrific. Wish Dr. Potter would write the text book for his Hist.Sci. 2200 course.

Great prof. Can tell he REALLY loves what he teaches which translates to enthusiasm from the students. The course was hard, there's a lot of memorization, but he did an amazing job teaching it and I'm glad I took it.

HistM222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Terrible class. I was excited about it beforehand, but it is the worst I have ever taken. Dr. Potter, though a very nice and I am sure knowledgeable man, lectured with a lot of incorrect facts, and only skimmed the surface. If you are actually interested in learning about the material, don't take this course.

This guy is awesome. Its too bad he is retiring in a few years, because I would want my kids to have him and learn everything he has to say. Maybe we can clone this guy and make all our professors at Western in the image of Potter, because then this would be the best school in the country.
