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

She's nice and very serious about her lectures. She will randomly through out pop quizzes based on recent events and also about her lectures. She'll also randomly treat the classes with Chinese treats. She is definitely friendly but she'll show her true side during office hours depending what kind of student you are she can be mean.

History 7B 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

I really enjoyed this class. I thought the lectures were always interesting and I always enjoyed coming to class because of them. The tests are somewhat easy as long as you pay attention in class, and read the book. Also, make sure to do the extra credit offered, it will make a difference. Had a great time in class and I learned a lot.

HIST 7B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is the best Hist prof, she is funny, honest, and kind. She provides so much helpful material like entire outlines to her lectures. She tries hard to be as transparent as possible so there are no surprises. Her test can be hard but with all the help she provides they are bearable. She is a must to take!

HIST 8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class was very emphasized on race and did not really cover anything I expected to learn about California. Only learned about Latino, Black and Asian dicrmination and their roles in society. The community project is a hassle if you are a busy person. She is very nice though. Her lectures are purely verbal. She never shows any power point notes.

HIST 8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm happy I took Professor Ling's course this semester. She's a great lecturer. It was always a pleasure to attend her class as lectures were always intelligent and thorough. Take Susie Ling if you like History, but even more if you enjoy learning the history of your state, CA and your city!,LA ; a history that many Angelenos choose to ignore.

His 8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I am rating her right now for all of yall looking for classes. It is the right thing to do, because I know a lot of PCC students uses this website. Ms.Ling is an excellent teacher at giving lectures. Just focus and listen to all her lectures and you'll know the materials for quizzes and exams. You'll need text books, and reading them is beneficial.

Susie is very dedicated to her job. Assignments and exams are always quickly graded. Her lectures are easy to understand. While her exams are tricky, they are fairly graded. Reading the textbook is a must if you want an A. She uses quizes to make sure everybody attends class.

hist2b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Class was interesting & fun. You will find the class easier if you have taken other Hist classes but an A is within reach for everyone. As for Susie she has a great sense of humor (lively lectures) but goes extra mile to make sure you learn (history, social issues etc). Offers great independent study programs. Not difficult or easy. She's fair.

GREAT GREAT GREAT! Her class is so interesting! You learn a lot, it is very demanding, but If you are responsible and pay attention to her class you will get a good grade. She teaches history and wants you to have an opinion about it! I took her class Spring2012 and It was awesome!

hist8a Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

very nice teacher, and the class is very interesting. she definitely gives you the kind of info you don't normally learn about. The tests are hard because "which statement is false" is pretty much the hardest questions to answer, and that's all there is + an essay. But overall it was a fun class and I'd def recommend it!

HIST8 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Textbook is a black and white novel that will put everyone to sleep; lecture notes are incomplete and consist of phrases that don't have any meaning; her tests consist of "which statement is false" which are nearly impossible to answer Stay away from her class and take Dr. Dodge instead since his class consists of field trips to interesting places.

The best teacher at PCC, EVAR!! with and A!! thats how epicly awesome she is. Her class is very hard though, but i mean its history what do you expect? Still she makes it fun, exiting, and helps show the truth behind what is in our textbooks. I loved her the entire class and wished i could take more of her classes. If i wasn't transferring i would.

Take down notes & u should be good. TAKE HER CLASS!!!

she does not necessarily follow the order in the book,and her tests are little tricky especially m/c questions.but gives u the topic of essay question 1-2 wks before exams,so u have time to prepare.Read the book is a must if u want an A.but a pretty easy B because her grading is like 86 and above is A, 85-66 is B. Recommended for who want to learn

Good professor.Has lots of opinions.Read the book and study hard because her tests are NOT easy,kind of tricky actually.Getting an A requires work,you have to read the chapters thouroughly.She could be a little easier,but she makes history so interesting.Exams are 50% essay,gives you essay prompt a week before tests,so outline your response well.

her class is pretty easy if you read but i had my focus on other classes so i never read and winged all her tests. i mainly put my weight on the essay part of the tests because she gives you the prompt ahead of time and allows you to write a draft and have her check it. tests are hard. all m/c part is which one of these are FALSE. a b c d e
