Professor Manson really knows what he is talking about, although it is hard for him to convey the material in an interesting manner.

Manson really knows his stuff...but it's easy to fall asleep in the class. Lots of reading, but tests are straightforward.

Professor Manson seemed like a nice guy, but his lectures were incredibly boring. It may have just been the material but I struggled to stay awake during every lecture. I took Anthro 7 with him and I thought human evolution would be a cool subject but it actually turned out to be pretty dull.

I hated this class. The TA was a jerk, so maybe that was the problem, but part of it was the rote memorization of stupid facts nobody cares about. I mean, so what if highland gorillas have an occiptal lobe that's 10mm deep?

Easiest A I had at UCLA. Just stay awake and that A is assured. Also, his lecture notes were word-for-word what he said in class. This is a class to take.

Professor Manson has lectured Anthro 7 so many times that he recites the lecture notes word for word. Lecture is really boring a pointless since it is all ready in typing. GET THE LECTURE NOTES AND YOU ARE SET!! The difference between an A and a B in this class is up to your effort and the quality of your TA. Bottom line...easy GE class.

If you can stay up in his lectures, I will give you a Nobel prize....

Professor Manson really makes an effor to get to know each student. When I took his Anthro 7 class, every friday he would randomly chose students to invite to eat lunch with him! He is VERY knowledgeable of the material. Tests aren't too hard. You just have to really know the material.
