HIST1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very interesting, lectures and teaching style and understanding what he wants in his four exams can take a while. Is very enthusiastic about his subject and interesting to watch lecture. Really enjoyed his class, few got A's and B's from what I saw, keep up with the HW's and 4 Essays and you'll do good. And DON'T THROUGH ANYTHING AWAY TILL THE END!

Awesome teacher, he knows his stuff but has an unconventional method of teaching. He doesn't make you memorize a bunch of useless facts, because he knows that were only taking that class because we have to.

Miller is a little off but nice all the same. Easy class take him if you got other heavy classes in same semester - easy A. Take something else to do while in class though because he gets off subject alot and just wants to chit chat on off the wall stuff. If your really interested in History take another teacher.

HIST1302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I enjoyed his classes. His lectures rarely covered what would be on the test. Easy class. Funny professor. If you want to be challenged though, I suggest you choose another professor. I, however had him for history my first semester and I chose him again for my second semester.

HIST1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Miller is the kind of guy that doesn't really care whether or not his students learn anything relevant to the course. I am in HIST 2 now and compared to him my current teacher is phenomenal! Miller rants on and on about irrelevant things, and his appearance as a grown man should be wayyyy better.

This guy is gives an easy A. Go to class every once in a while and you will do great. Don't have to read any of the text book. Tests are cake! He can be really boring and repetitive sometimes but who cares, you will get the grade you want...

This guy is something else. Don't expect to come into his class and read out of the textbook and do a bunch of reports. Lots of lectures every day and easy tests.

HIST1302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I understand this is higher education and I don't expect my professor's to hold my hand, but this guy was the absolute worst teacher I have ever had. It's so obvious he dosen't care, and when the prof doesn't care the students don't care. If you want an easy B take this guy, if you want to be challenged and learn choose another.

HIST1302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

All the raters who said he had terrible lectures were right on. This guy just mails it in basically. He could care less, sometimes he'll go over the same exact content 2 classes in a row. His 'mailed in' teaching style is gave me the indication he just doesn't care. On the upside, this class is good for slackers, no attendance, and an easy A.

He drones on, making each lecture, not to mention his overall point just about incomprehensible. The funny thing is, on each essay he pushes one to "strive for more analysis." He dosen't have to strive for any uniformity,or comprehension during hishalf hearted lectures, yet tells us to for analysis...upside... No attendance...won't fail you.

Horrible lectures, only about 2 people would show up because they were so bad. Can pass if you plan to retake every test:)

US Hist 1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Terrible lectures, offers no reviews/notes, hard to take your own notes with his constant digression. His advice for tests "Read the book man" Basically, do distance learning instead to get more effort put forth by your professor.
