He's awesome. You can choose not to take the final if you do well on the midterm and on the research paper. This means that (assuming you do) after week 7, it's just sweet cruisin'!

What's cool about him:
-always has the right popular culture reference to back up a concept
-looks EXACTLY like the singer Michael McDonald

On second thought...I think it WAS McDonald all along.

This class is one of the best I have ever taken at UCLA. Lana genuinely cares about her students and loves teaching, it shows through the way the material is presented. the class is set up with continuous work to make sure you are keeping up. For the summer course, there were 4 writing assignments where the best 3 were taken for your grade. there were 5 online labs which were fun and engaging. then the midterm and final were both take home. This course is engaging and fun.

One of the best professors I've had at UCLA. He's very articulate and does a good job of presenting technical, somewhat abstract concepts in ways that are easy to understand. You won't be able to slack off, but it's definitely not the hardest class I've taken. I took Anthro 8 and 110P.

Readings: Readings aren't super necessary, especially in Anthro 8. A bit more so in 110P, but I skimmed the chapters and got an A.

Tests: I had to make up my midterm and final due to scheduling conflicts in Anthro 8 and he was very understanding and flexible. Tests in Anthro 8 are multiple choice, in 110P they are essay based and very fair. He gives you a list of review questions, and the ones on the actual tests are very similar, if not the same. He'll give you a list of 6-7 and you have to pick 4 or so to write, so you do have some choice. He's more concerned with general concepts rather than specifics, so you don't need to waste time memorizing sites.

Other assignments: He gives a few short (ie. 1 page) papers in 110P and drops the lowest grade. You definitely have to think about the material, but it's not too hard to get to the main idea.
