Don't take this class if it's not going to be a priority. You have to go to class and pay attention and reading the book is a definite plus. No study guides for the tests so you have to know everything. He's really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the topic, but he's hardcore. He expects you to be just as interested.

He is really intimidating! but helpful if you can haul up the courage. I failed the class and left him disappointed but I would still take b.seto again, he really is the best TA for this class. he grades hard but makes the class interesting. going to his sections was my favorite part of the day and leaving always made me happier for some reason.

Great TA, he's funny, and helpfull, but is a tough grader. Make sure you're always at section cause he's big on attendance. This guy loves to party, and loves ketchup as well!

Most amazing TA EVER. Love B-Seto! He has a great sense of humor and I actually enjoyed attending his sections. I went out of my way to get him for 4C after I had 4B. Fair grader and he lets you know what the teacher is looking for. I'd give him an A+

Brandon was a great TA, he made the readings very clear and easy to understand. Even though the class was half midterm, half final, Brandon gives students the opportunity to raise their grade depending on section participation. Would definately request as TA again.

He uses humor to make up for the lack of substance in his sections. Sections do not discuss material that will appear on the midterm or final, only the papers/readings. If you must take his section, try to participate in section, and try to be a girl, for both will help your grade.

Brandon Seto is amazing. Although he is a tough grader on his one page assignments, he is also fair. You get what you put in. His sense of humor helps to propel his sections along. Quote: "They see my sandals and they fear them."

Although he did know the subject very well and kept section interesting, he was never specific or consistent about what he wanted in assignments. I made appointments to see him about 2 or 3 times, all of which he didn't show up for. He made it very difficult to get a good grade. I worked extremely hard to barely get a C!!!

i thought he was a very good ta. he is very enthusiastic and makes history interesting. i am thinking about changing my major becuase of him. he is a tough but fair grader. you get what you put into it. so for all of those complainers, you all need to work a little harder, or learn how to do it.

I felt that his grading was VERY unfair. He was not open to hear the students interpretations of history.

Best TA ever. He cares about his students, and is always available during office hours. He is also willing to make appointments. Very clear with what he wants from his students. Hope to have him again in history. Totally recommend. (^o^)

terrible ta. very unfair grader who simply wants all students to grovel to him. the only way to get a good grade in his class is sitting at his office that he never seems to come to and waiting to talk to him. aviod him if you can.

Awesome TA. He is always willing to see his students, even on days that he does not have office hours. He is a fair grader, and puts good explanations on the tests and papers. Although he requires homework every week it helps with discussion, papers, and the tests. So be sure to follow along, and you will not have a problem on the final.
