I think it’s a great class, and Dr. Rashidi is incredibly knowledgeable. She’s very engaging, but don’t expect her to handhold you throughout the course. The slides are not always clear, and she’s a fast talker. But if you supplement lecture notes with the book, you’ll be fine. Electronics are not allowed in her class, which I think is great.
She doesn’t always come across as the most organized. At the end of the quarter we had to hand in a 8-10 page research paper- you have to come up with your own topic and it must be related to class.

I definitely enjoyed her class, and would recommend her- unless you don’t like to put in the work.

Rashidi is the worst professor ever. I would never ever recommend this class to someone. It is unfortunate because the material is super interesting. She goes through a lot of material very quickly and does not explain her slides very well. The class is paper only and she does not allow laptops for note taking, but honestly her lectures are not much supplement to the slides. She expects you to remember every little detail for her exams and she does not even give a study guide. She also is not very responsive to emails, I emailed her three times in the quarter and never got a response back. She seems to have a lot of going on in her personal life and even cancelled a week's worth of class, which meant that she went through the material really fast so it could be on the final still. Her grading for the exams are not consistent and she was not clear about what exactly she was looking for. Some people were not docked down for only putting one word answers, while others were. She also assigns a lot of reading on top of the class lectures slides. It is like she expects people to be a paleopathologist. I would never take a class with her again.
