This class wasn't even a backup class for me when I was registering during orientation this fall, but somehow I signed up and it was the best decision I could have made for my continuously sinking GPA. Tests are the same as the study guide, labs take place during discussion which is basically free points, and the essay is 5 pages and not hard. Acabado forever.

Anthropology 8 is really a typical ge course.
Pros: u don't have to even look at the textbook. u don't have to go to class. u can even cheat if u dare. Exams will be easy if you prepare using the study guide. Taking notes may be useful, but quite irrelevant most of times. Papers take some time, but overall it's easy to get an A.

Cons: this is boring for people who only want to take a GE. He talks a lot about Philippines and few care to learn. Sometimes he himself is not concerned.

Took Acabado for Anthro 116S: Southeast Asian Archaeology. The class was pretty straightforward. He provided a practice midterm exam, which was almost exactly the same as the midterm. For our final, we had to write 3 four page essays. This took a bit of work to complete. During the quarter, we had to write weekly precis on the readings. This was pretty time-consuming since some of the articles were difficult to understand. There was also a group project where we presented on some of the weekly readings and led discussions on them. Although this class was a bit of work (mainly due to the weekly precis), I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in this topic or needs to fulfill the Archaeology requirement as an Anthro major! Acabado was a fun professor and was always available to answer student questions/concerns in office hours or over email. He offered extra credit to the class if we made 5 memes about the course material.
