Introduction to Southeast Asian Studies
I took Hist. 9E with this prof after looking at the grade distributions on bruinwalk. I expected somewhat of an easy A, but I had to work my ass off just to get an A- in the class. If you get Steve Rodriguez as your TA, you are fucked- he's the worst TA ever. During discussion he talks about things irrelevant to the class, and only started talking about our readings beginning week 8 -_-. The professor and TA's scam you on the midterm; for the identification terms you will need to have at least a half page of information on each term to get full credit on the term (they tell you you only need 2-3 sentences describing the term's location, significance, and definition). I would've got a B, but luckily for me I got some guidance from the OTHER TAs' review sessions. Overall, my TA gave maybe 4 A's and the other TA's gave about 20+ A's. Don't take this class, i'm not even kidding.
