As long as you show up to class and take notes during the lectures you should be fine. Didn't use the books a whole lot but he's always willing to answer questions. Mostly lecture/videos with a few "quizzes" which are open note. Lots of writing. Nice and respectable professor.

He's an intelligent man that is interested in history, but a hard grader on your essays. He asks for a specific structure on the essays so if you follow that you'll be fine. The exams are a lot to know so study hard and try not to miss class because the lectures help. He doesn't really use the book.

This class is overall not very hard, and Wolf is helpful and approachable. He likes papers written a certain way, if you cover what he says he wanted talked about in class you will do well. More than happy to meet with you if you need help. He actually cares and won't make you feel stupid. Easy quizzes, just show up to class.

Wolf is dope! He speaks in a mono-tone but tries to stay enthusiastic by raising his voice during the important parts of the lecture, so if you find your-self day dreaming you can still catch the important things.

Worst professor i've ever had. Didn't use the book once. No matter how much you try and fix your essays to meet his standards, you'll get the same low grade each time. Office hours are pointless, he wont help you at all. Overall doesn't care about his students.

By far the worst teacher I have ever had. He is an unfair grader and does not offer assistance when asking how to raise your grade, expect to receive the same grade on everything even if you make improvement. His lectures are boring and useless, and don't bother buying the book.

All around great professor. The class requires a lot of writing, but he's there to help you if you ever need it. Very helpful in office hours and sincerely wants the best for you. The class is basically all lectures/videos + worksheets...I'll admit I dozed off a few times. But he tries to make the material as interesting as possible.

Professor Wolf is great. The majority of your grade is based on a midterm, final and 2 papers. They are not easy but he's willing to help you because he does want you to succeed in his class. He is responsive to e-mails and is always there for his office hours. He makes a relatively boring subject fun since he is so enthusiastic about History.

Took his post 1965 US history class.95% of the grade is from 4 essays,a midterm and a final.The other 5% is from mini quizzes taken nearly every class.The midterm was 3 essays and the final was 6.I HATE essays.Classes were very interesting,just wish the grade wasn't basically entirely made up of essays.Nice guy.Got a B but had to work for it.

I took this class to fulfill my gen ed and it took more time out of my week than my 4 unit classes. He is a HARD grader and its difficult to pay attention in his class. If you want a challenge in history take his class, otherwise good luck.

He is a difficult grader on his essays. Even if you make the changes he tells you to make, you still receive the same grade on the next one. The exams are pretty easy, he gives you the essay questions ahead of time so you can study them.

Class is all based on essays that you write which is NOTHING from his lecture. HE IS A HARD GRADER! You have to go to class because he does random quizes which are super easy and you can use your notes. His class is hard to stay awake in, which is sad because he is SO SWEET and will be extremely helpful if you email him about your essays.
