Horrible. Boring voice, difficult not to dose ( we talked about this while elvuating him in class). I don't understand how he grades papers. Got A's on outlines, but a D and a C on longer papers. I have never gotten a D on a paper in my life. Run away! Don't take his class!

Only positive I will say- he's very smart in his field. Oh & attendance isn't mandatory so you can skip whenever. Otherwise, he talks way too much, always goes over class time, is a very slow grader, and is not helpful or available. Gives too much info at once in the most boring lectures ever. Longest 55 minutes of my life.

This professor cannot stay on topic to save his life. If something is due, say, on the 10th, it may be the 25th before you actually turn it in because he spends so much time talking about other things that we never get to the assignment. There are two weeks left in class and I've received two grades back. I'd have dropped it if I had known.

Take notes on the discussions, even if he doesnâ??t say â??Write this down.â?? He gives you all the essays beforehand, but you must answer them based off facts discussed IN CLASS. Beyond that, know the location of everything he talks about in class on a blank map (rivers, cities, countries, monuments, etc.), and do all outlines. An â??Aâ?? is very doable.

Dr. Halabi is very knowledgable on Middle-eastern history and culture. It is also not a dry lecture as half the class period is dedicated to discussion about the readings which makes the class more interesting. He also avoids obvious bias about the Middle-East and is objective.

This instructor is a total tool. I took this class expecting to be intrigued but he never stays on topic and switches on to other things, i.e putting in movies during a lecture and what not. He also tends to interrupt students during the presentations and interrupt people when a question needs asked.Attendance is mandatory for a decent grade.

I enjoyed the way he guided our thinking from the traditional to modern ME. Supplemented the text, which was definately lacking, with some excellent articles and videos illustrating topics in class. Take good notes, tests involve writing on topics disclosed beforehand but arent necessarily in the text. He's a smart man I enjoyed the course.

He gives good information, but you have to decipher what he's saying- not b/c he has a strong accent but b/c he has no clear speaking skills. Bad with communication- don't expect an email back EVER. Showed good videos in class, but unfortunately that's the best thing I can say. Hmk isn't bad but again, don't expect help if ur confused.

Absolutly the worst professor i have had since i have been in college, he just rambles on incoherently and does not have an all encompassing theme that he is trying to get at. He doesnt care about his students, and treats you like an idiot if you need to ask a question. plus he requires you to read entire books about every two or three days he bad

Undergraduates: if you can get away with avoiding Halabi, save yourself the headache. No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER be good enough for him. To the person who said that those of us who don't like him are "babies": you took RST; you don't know what you're talking about. Take him as a grad student and tell me who is "just whining."

Halabi is an intersting prof. A great amount of what we went over in class was interesting and I learned a great deal about the Middle East. The only thing is that Halabi expects a lot from you and wants you to know almost everything. Overall the class is not the easiest but if you go to class take notes and study you can get an A. I did.

If you are very interested in the subject, go ahead and take the class but be prepared to really work for a decent grade. Make sure to do the reading. For your exam you will have to memorize a map of the Middle East, take the map section seriously. Halabi almost never gives an A, and half the students either drop or flunk.

For being a gen ed. he expects too much.The material is hard to follow not necessarily him because most of the words are unfamiliar.However, he treats this class more like a major specific class rather than a gen ed.If you need a non-western pick something else unless you desperately needed the honors class like me. Unless you are interested in MEH

Gee, where do I begin? He contradicts his own class policies. He rudely interrupts students in mid-sentence. He is a unreasonable in his grading. He is very unapproachable. He is standoffish and makes you feel two inches tall. Very unclear about what he wants. You'll work yourself to death for only a B or C. Save yourself the stress-- don't bother.

Course was informative yet incredibly dry. Islam has the ability to be incredibly interesting and he dropped the ball with mundane details and extensive coursework. I will avoid taking him as a religion professor in the future, and would advise to stick with more lively ones to do the subject justice.

Poorly organized teaching structure. Very little congruity between lessons. He seems to expect doctoral level work than undergrad. Academic masochists need only enroll.

I've had Halabi for several classes now, he can be dry but very informative to. The problem is that he expects you to want to know about the subject, not just expect to get an "A" stamped on your hand at the end of the quarter. Forget the haters, if you are truthfully interested in the Middle East Halabi is your man.

this guy didn't show up the first day of class. When a girl went to his office to see what was wrong, he told her he thought the class started on another day. Then told her to tell the other students that were waiting in the classroom for him that class would begin on Wednesday. Didn't even bother to come down and tell the us hisself.

His class was alright, you do learn a lot but he shows NO mercy on grading. I went to class, took EXTENSIVE notes, studied, and still only scraped a B. He DOES NOT curve so you get what you get. I took this class for intersession and he treated it like full-term. You're expected to know a LOT of information. NOT an easy class. Be warned.
