The best aspects of this course included the instructor being passionate about what he taught, his ability to explain concepts well, and the interesting material he covered. However, many students felt that the absentee policy was harsh. The instructor rushed through the material and there was a huge workload. Suggestions for improvement were for the instructor to distribute his notes to students and for him to slow down while teaching. Perspective students should be aware that missing one class may be detrimental and that memorization is important. As challenging as the class was, students interested in history will still enjoy this class.
