Most Helpful Review

Aberbach is a nice enough guy, but he's probably the most boring lecturer ever. Very monotone and dull. His slides are also usually fairly irrelevant to what he's talking about, so if you want to look at the old lectures to study they're no help at all. The lectures are also so hard to pay attention too that you really don't learn anything either. I stopped going to the lectures that he gave because it really just wasn't worth the time to go. If you take this cluster you have to deal with him, but be warned that you're probably going to fall asleep in class if you even bother to go.

Most Helpful Review

Professor Decker (and a few others on his team) managed to turn one of the most interesting decades in American history into what I have no doubt will be the most boring class I will ever take. The content is fascinating, but I hated walking into lecture in the morning because I knew the professors would screw it up somehow. Decker's lectures are almost entirely auditory, so visual learners will walk out with very little. I find him irritating, a feeling also expressed by many of my classmates. I managed to get an A in the class because of one stellar paper I wrote, but even that paper I can't say I enjoyed. I highly recommend avoiding this class and any others taught by Decker.

This class is the main reason I was extremely stressed during the fall and winter quarters. Every Wednesday night I was staying up until 4-ish AM just to finish all the readings, which didn't even feel relevant to the lectures.

However, I felt that the class itself had very interesting material. Despite hurting both my mental health and my sleep schedule, I would take this class again because the lectures were genuinely interesting.
