Pregill is one of those professors who you either love or hate. He made dumb jokes in class and he thought he was funnier than he was. However, this guy is a great teacher. If you pay attention and take notes, this class is easy. The problem is you have to do this for 75 minutes straight because he goes through a lot. There wasn't much outside reading but listen to what he says and what the TAs say and you should be fine. It's not an easy A but if you want to get an A it is very possible.
Dr. Pregill is by far the best lecturer I've ever had at this school. He comes to class very organized and is extremely knowledgable about what he teaches! He does make silly jokes and does not like it when people are late to class, but he doesn't take attendance (even though I 100% recommend going to class). He's very friendly and approachable and can eve speak & read Arabic! He also didn't want people to share his slides or exams but they were very easy if you paid attention to his lectures. (He even posted review slides before exams which were super helpful!!) I skimmed some the readings a day before the exams and memorized the dates, it also helps to be interested in the topic to begin with! He is a great professor and I would highly recommend Megan as the TA! She was super helpful with essays and she's funny! 10/10 would take this class again if I could, incredible opportunity to learn about the origins of religions and I'm pretty sure those were the best essays I've ever written in my life.
