He lectures really well and is pretty funny. He gave us the final questions before hand, but they were pretty tough questions overall. If you have to take a history class, take his. Its not dry, as most history classes can be and you know whats going to be on the exams.

Gantner's probably the easiest professor in the history department but also the least concerned about student learning. His speciality is American history, and in his lectures he takes up the persona of a grumpy old man. He has an incredibly sarcastic, angry sense of humor, and his comments about modern society are quite a sight to behold. To put it simply, his lectures are never boring. As for the way he sets up his class, he usually gives ALL the questions in advance for his exams, and they're pretty easy and self explanatory. This is the class for an easy A. But if you expect to get to know Gantner, become buddies with him in office hours, or have him answer your questions, he's the wrong guy. Gantner often ditched his office hours, which may be understandable considering his two jobs, two young kids, and hurried schedule. But he does have the commitment to fulfill as a professor. That detail aside, anyone should want to take him, for his dry as sandpaper sense of humor, and his easy A friendly exam setup.
