Hes a very good professor. Class is based on two highest grades there is an optional research paper, midterm, and final. Theres a lot of readings but they aren't necessary. He tests off the powerpoints from lecture which he puts up online. The only bad thing is he goes through the slides pretty fast so you have to take notes on just what he says and go back and look at the slides whole studying.Overall hes very good and keeps its somewhat entertaining considereing hes lecturing about pretty boring stuff.

the entire class in based on powerpoint lectures. he posts the slides the night before, so you can print it out and write notes on it. i made the mistake of studying the textbook for the final and failed the midterm. the paper is 8-10 pages and the final was optional. i took it because i failed the MT. the good thing is, there are only two things to do in class, both 50% of your grade and if you mess up, you can take the final to make it up (i got a C+ in the class)

i thought the class was really boring and ended up not going at all. he's a brilliant guy, but i can only do powerpoint for so long before going ADD. an advice from me: memorize the slides and get the main points from the online readings and you'll ace his multiple choice tests.

Amazing professor.
He is very organized and is always available when you have questions. I got a lot out of the course and got a an A. You'll enjoy it regardless if you are interested in the subject. Definitely consider taking this course!

Amazing teacher! I would definitely recommend him to anyone! Just have to work really hard upfront and it will pay off later in the course.
