Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted April 15, 2019 Grade Received: A+

**Review for An N E 14W**
Dr. Wingert was one of the most engaging professors I have had at UCLA. His sense of humor made the class very enjoyable and all of his assignments we're fairly paced and graded. Professor Wingert was always available to meet in person or email anytime I needed corrections on my essays. As a pre med student I found learning about ancient medicine fascinating. As Dr. Wingert says on the first day of class he wants this to be "your best class at UCLA" and he definitely delivered on his claim! 10/10 would recommend again especially of you need to fulfil the year of writing medical school requirement.

Quarter Taken: Summer 2016 Submitted Aug. 8, 2016 Grade Received: A

This class is easy, but not straightforward. At first, I thought I would dislike the class since Wingert has his fair share of dry lectures. It didn't help that if you take it in the summer, lectures are 3 hours each. At the start of the quarter, Wingert asserts that he mostly gives out B's and C's. The grade distributions on Bruinwalk say otherwise, but it doesn't really matter. Just do the work, memorize a timeline of like ~30 dates, and make sure to actually revise your papers. It's a pretty chill class so don't stress as long as you follow the syllabus. However, Wingert does randomly switch up things, like doing a surprise pop quiz or giving you a study guide that is completely different than what the midterm/final will be. As for the book, it helps to read it but its not necessary. It's like 7 dollars anyways if you want to learn some neat stuff about Jerusalem.
