Quarter Taken: Fall 2018 Submitted Nov. 19, 2019 Grade Received: B+

Despite my lack of effort in the class, ASIAN AM 40W truly is an "easy A" of a GE. I am not disappointed with myself because my grade reflected my attitude and approach towards the class. Professor Bascara is an incredible professor with an engaging teaching style that includes interesting content. The class was graded by weekly one-page responses, three essays, and a final (if I remember correctly).

I am selling the NCRR textbook for $10! Email me at sjpanado@ucla.edu for inquiries! Go Bruins!

Class is relatively an easy GE. As long as you do the readings and listen along the lectures (which are slightly boring :( ), you really don't have to prepare much for the midterm or final. Assignments are also pretty straightforward, so I would not worry too much about the essays. I definitely would recommend anyone to take this GE. I am also selling the all the course readings (including Amerasia Journal and "Native Speaker") for $15. Email me at donnatopia15@gmail.com if interested.

Pretty easy GE. A lot of reading, but mostly skimming is helpful enough to understand the class. Bascara lectures in a slow voice that makes taking notes easy, but staying attentive kind of hard. Needed to write three essays, but midterm was really easy (got 100%) if you looked at a test bank and studied the readings/paid attention in discussion. Final exam was cancelled because of the fire, so only did the group presentation, which required minimal effort as well.

The class overall is pretty boring, it really hard to stay awake. There is a lot of reading in this class but I found it to be doable, you really just need to scan them and you'll be ok. His midterm and final weighed very little because I failed both and was still able to get an A- in the class. If you want to do well in the class make sure you do the essays well, thats really where the majority of your grade comes from. Reading responses every week got a little annoying but it's ok if you just summarize what was said in lecture. Overall, this class is fairly easy if you just put a little effort into the writing, the topic for the essays aren't bad.

This class was okay. His lectures are boring, and his readings were really long. His discussions were required. You had to write reading responses on the readings and lecture every week for discussion. You also had to do a group week facilitation for a week, which is basically talking about the readings for that week. His 2 essays were okay. They were graded easily by the TA. His midterm consisted of multiple choice on the readings. His final also had that but also essay questions. If you read the readings, you're fine. There's just a lot to read.
