SA140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

SAC142 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

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.
