HIST 264 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Wouldn't recommend this professor at all. Probably the most difficult grader ever seen in 16 years of schooling. Asks a lot of an online class and very picky. Maybe if you have a PhD in Asian history you can do well in this course otherwise avoid it like the black plague since it will discourage you from wanting to learn Asian history.

Hi264 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I haven't even gotten my grade in this class yet, but I know it's not going to be good. I'm only taking it because it's the only history I could fit into my schedule this semester. He expects so much from you, which is fine but I'm taking this to fulfill GED reqs, so I could care less. Definitely not an "easy A" course. Do not recommend.

HI 371 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was a Modern Japanese History class, and Ambaras is a very knowledgeable professor with personal experience in Japan. If you like Japan or history, you will enjoy his lectures! He only gives 4 projects as grades in this class, so be prepared to interpret films, primary sources, and more. He's a tough grader but gives good critique.
