Fall 2017 - Professor Goldberg is in my opinion, one of the easier history professors at UCLA. You will definitely learn a fair bit, though the lectures themselves are ok to good at best. She's not the most energetic when it comes to her lectures, but they are not terrible either. Every so often there's something interesting to be learned. Textbooks are a must for this class, as you'll need them to finish the major online assignments. Other than that, the course consisted of 2 weekly responses to readings that were either posted online or in our textbooks, plus a midterm, a 5-8 page paper, and then a final. All were pretty straightforward and did not require too much effort. (She has a couple of online assignments that require reading a whole book but she offers short-cuts to the parts that are most important). Also, she gives out a study guide for both the midterm and the final, which is helpful (they were a lot more daunting than the actual exams, but its best to err on the side of caution just to be safe). If you're fine with ok lectures and a moderate amount of homework, you can get an A without being overwhelmed.
