Comment: He was definitely a really monotone lecturer. The tests were fair in terms of material-- often he gave us essay questions that were super similar to the ones on the exams, but it depends on which GSI you have- that willreally determine your overall grade. I did ok in this class, but for people looking to fulfill a breadth (like me) I would pass on this. It was too time consuming for a 4 unit breadth.

Comment: I really didn't think this class is as not as bad as people make it seemed to be. I really didn't try much or study hard and I got a B+. She's definitely into the material though; it's subtle but you do know it. The exams are fair if you go to lecture and do your readings you'll surely ace it. You see however I skipped a few readings which is why I got a B

Comment: The only horrible thing about him is that he doesn't always lecture chronologically. So get a timeline and things will start to make sense. He is however, very enthusiastic about Japan and he greatly emphasizes Japan's religions: shinto and buddhism with a touch of Christianity (It was his Master Thesis, ask him about it).

Comment: I wasn't expecting such change of professor on HIS 14 at the beginning of this semester, and she's the worst I could imagine. The lectures were very boring without any highlights.

Comment: Horrible. Her lectures and slides are no more than repeating the textbook.
