Professor Wake is one of the most amazing professors at UCLA. I've taken all of his courses, and they were a bit difficult to handle at first. The professor, however, does an excellent job of helping you along the way. Since this is a selected topics course, there are no more than 15 people in the class. Therefore, the professor gets very involved with his students. This is a hands-on learning experience that beats any lecture. I have learned more from his selected topics courses than any other Anthropology lectures. His tests are a little difficult, but if you are attending all the lectures and keeping up with the readings then you are in solid shape of getting a good grade. Dr. Wake is a brilliant man, and a gem to the Anthropology/Cotsen Archaeology department!

Archaeology of Lower Central America

This class was fun and easy. Every week he gave a 10pt quiz, but often times the quiz was just signing in to make sure you were there.
You have to memorize a lot of geography and dates and things — tests are memorization based. But I found that pretty doable.
The grade is based on those quizzes, midterm, final and a final research paper on a topic of your choice.
Professor Wake has a sort of dry humor I enjoyed and he’s really great in his field, I liked hearing about his experiences in Central America.
Overall I recommend.
