HIST100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Be prepared to do work. Professor O'Brien clearly knows his history, but there is a lot of information. Make sure you read the text sources and cite them in your essays. (You have three in-class exams: 10 paragraph-long identifications and 1-2 essays.) He offers help, but I felt he was too intimidating to approach.

HIST201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Took 2 classes with him in the 80s. He is the reason I changed major and studied history (and then economics -- but that's another story). To me he represents what's best in teaching. Thank you Professor O'Brien... Haris Daskalothanassis

HIST713 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His lecture is very interesting and you can do most of the work without reading if you attend class regularly. However, is test was SOO MUCH information and the 20 page paper at the end was slightly overwhelming. Good class, great professor, but GLAD ITS OVER!

HIST703 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Was interesting hearing him read, however, there was no give and take just him talking which I feel does not give him a chance to know the student. I am unsure if final paper was read or test marked. It seemed that final grade depended on 5 min. class presentation. If you are not a good speaker, you will not do well.
