The best aspects of the course included the informative lectures on Asian history, as well as the engaging class discussions during the second half of the semester. The worst aspect of the course was the heavy and sometime dense readings. The course would improve if students had more essays and thought papers as it helped them to practice their writing. Also, the course would improve if the amount of assigned readings were reduced and if there were more discussion in the first section of the class. Prospective students should know that the course has a moderate workload and they should be prepared to do lot of reading and participating in class.

The best aspects of this course included a knowledgeable, fair, and challenging instructor as well as excellent in-class discussions. The lectures were engaging and informative. Some students felt that there was too much reading and that the requirement to print all of the readings was frustrating. Suggestions for improvement include assigning shorter, more accessible readings that the class can delve more deeply into. Prospective students should know that the instructor's ability and syllabus are outstanding. They should complete all the readings so as to participate in in-class discussions.
