121C is an amazing class for Anthro majors or anyone interested in Evolution. Professor Kennedy is amazingly kind in office hours and willing to help everyone grasp concepts. She held two study sessions, one for the midterm and one for the final. I recommend that when taking this class you create a schedule of when to tackle the readings (there are a lot) and keep up with it on your own. Professor Kennedy goes through the slides during class, but she doesn't give deadlines or a timeline for when to get readings done, so that will have to be managed on your own. Otherwise, a really great class with engaging material!

Rashidi is the worst professor ever. I would never ever recommend this class to someone. It is unfortunate because the material is super interesting. She goes through a lot of material very quickly and does not explain her slides very well. The class is paper only and she does not allow laptops for note taking, but honestly her lectures are not much supplement to the slides. She expects you to remember every little detail for her exams and she does not even give a study guide. She also is not very responsive to emails, I emailed her three times in the quarter and never got a response back. She seems to have a lot of going on in her personal life and even cancelled a week's worth of class, which meant that she went through the material really fast so it could be on the final still. Her grading for the exams are not consistent and she was not clear about what exactly she was looking for. Some people were not docked down for only putting one word answers, while others were. She also assigns a lot of reading on top of the class lectures slides. It is like she expects people to be a paleopathologist. I would never take a class with her again.
