Avoid this guy at all costs. His lectures are sleep-inducing, and for 135A the material is so vague and abstract that you will never be able to give him what he wants on assignments...Plus, he doesn't even tell you what he's looking for! He has bizarre practices like calling a final paper a "take home exam" and distribution an insanely difficult topic 4 days before it's due. It's a paper...why does he have to add extra stress to student's lives by only giving them 4 days to work on it!!!! To top it off, his TAs were worthless. One had no personality what so ever and the other spoke like a 13 year old valley girl. Neither one was truly helpful when I approached with questions and one even admitted that she wasn't completely sure what the professor was looking for in a certain assignment, that she was grading! Overall, this was just one of those weird classes that I'm sorry I took. It is completely useless information and the professor, despite appearing approachable, is arrogant and odd. I left on the last day feeling like I never wanted to hear a world about psychological anthropology ever again. Way to go prof and TAs! They made me happy I'm graduating this year and never have to go through a class like this again.
