Sorry, no enrollment data is available.
The worst decision I have made at UCLA. Maybe I'm just a d----ss (along with everyone else I've talked to), but no matter how hard I try in this g----mn class (and I try VERY hard), I don't get anything better than a B- (which was ONCE). Although I love Shideler as a teacher, I feel that his grading system (or perhaps his TAs') is WAY too difficult considering the help that is provided in lecture, discussions, and office hours. For those of you who have average writing skills (for UCLA), STEER CLEAR (unless he changes his grading-which I hope will happen after reading this). If you're a spectacular writer, by all means take it. Maybe you'll get a B+! Who knows? I personally got an A in EngComp 3, if that means anything. If I end up with a C in this class I'll pee my pants with delight and relief.
On the plus side, the readings themselves weren't very difficult or extensive. Professor Shideler himself is a wonderful teacher who loves what he teaches and has great insight.
