I love love LOVE Goldman! His lectures are interesting and funny and I learned so much about Indian culture from him. Definitely the best professor I've had at Cal.

Good class for breadth. Sometimes lectures would be difficult to understand. Term paper was challenging.

Professor Goldman is a lovely man and his astounding knowledge of all things Hindu really blew me away. That being said, as someone with no prior knowledge I found his lectures extremely difficult to follow as well as his main points. He does give you most of the essay questions for the test but always throws something in you didn't expect.

Goldman is one of the world's foremost authorities on the Mahabharata and Ramayana. Lectures are very interesting, clear, and pretty funny too. The class is also pretty easy as the grade is based on two easy exams and a research paper. Goldman is also great guy to just sit and talk to so take advantage of office hours. An easy, fun A.

Goldman is an amazing professor - his lectures are crystal clear, extremely informative, and very fun to listen to. He is amazingly knowledgable about all aspects of Indian culture, and his lectures are not just great, but also funny as well. A very easy course, and you will get a lot out of his class. Definitely recommended!

Very friendly and knowledgeable guy. He is very passionate about his material. His class is very easy as he goes over the material in his review sessions so there are no surprises when you take the test. Very good class to take for breadth.
