Wow could Weiss be any more boring? His lectures were extremely dull and he focused on the most mundane topics of history. He assigns a lot of reading for the class, but don't think it will help you. I did most of the reading until I realized it was absolutely pointless, so I started skimming the books instead. The class was based soley on the final exam. That's right. No papers, no midterms, no projects. Which for some people might be ok, but it had me freaking out about the final. A week before the final, he gave us 10 prompts that could appear on the final. He chose 4 and we had to write on 2. The prompts weren't very good so I felt like it was kind of hard to write a really good essay, but I ended up with an A- in the class. I didn't learn anything, so if you want to learn, take a different professor!
