He curves a lot, so you don't have to stress if you get a high C or a B on the midterm. The class is supposed to be 2 hours and 50 minutes, but he will let you go after 1 hour. Sounds great, but I disagree with that! Although he's a great speaker, he rushes and he expects us to complete small readings within the chapters (almost 50 readings in total). Reading is not the problem, but I think he could spend at least 30 more minutes of class going over them. Always read the slides ahead of time, record the class, and skim through the readings (he will include maybe 4 or 5 questions from those extra readings). Skim through the chapters because he included a couple of questions from the book material that wasn't on the slides. I learned a lot from the material, but I didn't like his teaching style.

I'm honestly surprised that there's hardly any reviews for Professor Hill. This class was probably one of the most interesting and easiest classes I've taken. Professor is straightforward with what he wants in the two projects, and he basically gives you a study guide with what's going to be on the 2 midterms (He calls the final a "second midterm"). Some questions are often tricky, since it requires detailed reading from the book, but just make sure to stay on top of it, or split the readings with friends. Try to take this class if you can!! Thanks for a great quarter Professor!!!

For this class, focus on the slides and read (from the book) only concepts that are discussed on the slides. Don't try to memorize every single thing or read every single page. You just need to get the idea from the book and understand the slides from lecture to get an A-. There are a couple of projects that are interesting and not hard to do. They might take you a few hours here and there. Good luck Bruins! The book was pretty relaxing except when it came to reading the Right to Die at least for me but overall I enjoyed reading it considering I don't like reading .

As far as the professor goes. He is a good guy and shows respect for the older population. In our class, we talked about stereotypes on aging, elderly and the social factors affecting them. Pretty good class to know about our own future selves :)

I don't recommend this class unless you have plenty of time to read the whole book and take notes on every detail and memorizing them. There are two tests ( each 60 MC) which are not hard, but the problem is you have to know every detail in the book because 60% of the questions are from the book and they are never discussed in the lectures. Two tests each 42.5% and two projects consist of 5% and 10%.
