Rolston is BY FAR the worst professor i have taken at UCLA. His lectures are disorganized and confusing more than they are helpful. He doesnt emphasize key points and his powerpoints are full of irrelevant pictures rather than helpful notes. He basically reads an essay for an hr and 15 min every lecture and burns through it at the speed of light. To illustrate the pace of his lectures, I type about 80 words per minute but I can still only type less than half of what he says.

In addition, he lectures about every single irrelevant detail and goes off on unimportant tangents rather than explaining the harder to understand concepts and it makes it very easy to miss the important information. Did I mention his powerpoint slides are garbage?

On the syllabus it says the midterm might be take home and not essay but he decided to give us an in class essay instead. Talk about false hopes and dreams.

Seriously, if you care about your gpa and you like learning, stay away from this guy because he will kill both of those things for you.
