Take this class in summer. He can get distracted, but he's a great teacher. This class is not hard if you do the work. He is very clear about his expectations: read the textbook, answer the workbook, and pay attention in class. You also watch a documentary every day. The quiz and test questions are straight out of the book; the final is difficult.

Pretentious arrogant jerk that will belittle you. He is not a historian and roundly disliked by his peers. Avoid this professor at all costs.

This class is not hard. The routine is to read the textbook and then answer workbook questions (usually you can Google the questions and find the answers). The quiz and exam questions are exactly the same as the workbook questions. You are expected to read 3 books to write the essay (30% of grade). Come to class prepared and get on his good side.

I agree with some of the comments that he is rude and likes to pick on students. I will never take another class from him. He is a very rude professor. Do not take his class, unless you want to be humiliated.

Dr. Vasquez took me under his wing because he knew I was a serious person. If you don't fit that bill then don't attend his courses because it will probably lower your grade point average. If you do fit that bill than take as many courses as you can from him. It will make you an even better student.

This instructor was horrible. He walked out of his office while I was talking to him. He spends class time sitting down telling story's that don't pertain to the course. He put a film on in Spanish and attempted to translate for 1.5 hours. Good example of bad ten-year teaching.

Great professor. Incredible sense of humor made class go quickly, even though it was almost 3 hrs. Makes you work for the grade, no free points. No notes on exams, lots of reading, short quizzes, in-class discussion daily. I enjoyed this class very much, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn something about history.

Do NOT take his classes, unless you enjoy being harrassed and like dealing with a pompous, rude teacher. I agree that teachers should not pamper students and let them slide by, but you don't have to act the way Vasquez does. It was one of the longest semesters of my life. I learned a lot and a received a very-hard earned " B."

This guy is exactly what I wanted from the History department. A real old school **** who commands respect and puts fear into the hearts of wishy washy coasters who want As but don't have the passion for work, for responsibility, for research, for accountability. He's the Vito Corleone of DMH. If George is too tough for you, I advise you to bite the bullet. He's only extreme to counter the weight of all the easy teachers with high ratings because they're sheeple producing more sheeple.

I have to agree with the person who wrote: Tough, tough class... THE WAY UNIVERSITY IS SUPPOSED TO BE!!!! Makes you work, makes you think, so when you get out, you know you've accomplished something. No fuzzy PC crap. Our degree needs to mean something. HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS - WE NEED THAT! I'm a better student for that. TAKE A CLASS WITH HIM!

Tough, tough class... THE WAY UNIVERSITY IS SUPPOSED TO BE!!!! Makes you work, makes you think, so when you get out, you know you've accomplished something, not just jumped through PC "warm fuzzy" hoops with a meaningless, easy A. Love him.

Extremely disrespectful. Ironically, demands respect from students. Needs to review the definition of "Socratic method."
