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.

This was a great class and I really enjoyed it. Actually, this was my third time taking professor Acabado and he never disappoints. This class consisted of 10 weekly quizzes, a group project, four biweekly's and of course; a midterm and final. The quizzes, midterm and final were all multiple choice questions based on the readings and some lecture material. The readings were not too bad, ranging from 30 to 100 pages a week (give or take). The latter was easy since it was assigned from a book, which by the way was very interesting and not too expensive ($30). Although all of the logistics I just mentioned were taken during the remote learning period, I was able to take him in-person in another class and it was pretty much the same: quizzes, group project, and midterm and final. I would definitely recommend this class, he's a great professor and you'll learn a lot.
