Quarter Taken: Winter 2018 Submitted April 18, 2018 Grade Received: A

History 101 with Professor Cahn is the best class I have taken at UCLA thus far. Our class consisted of 2 take home papers (Midterm, 3-4 Pages + Final, 5-6 Pages) and 5 short weekly online discussions. Professor Cahn genuinely wants you to succeed and is very approachable.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2017 Submitted Nov. 19, 2017 Grade Received: A+

This is a review for hist 101- history of transportation. Professor Cahn is very entertaining, often not on purpose which makes it even better. His lectures can be all over the place and the overall course trajectory and expectations are not clearly laid out BUT just hang in there and enjoy his lectures. His one goal that determines your grade is wether or not you show critical thinking capabilities. If you show any sort of coherent independent ideas you will get an easy A
