This class is really really boring. Professor Balsam is a nice person but he is NOT a good lecturer. If you are someone who enjoys learning from lecture, this is definitely not a class to go to. You will have to learn all the materials alone, from the textbook. Tests are fair, but essay question can throw you off. I tried writing as much as I knew and it did NOT work. I am not sure if its because the TAs are different now, but they actually want an organized essay. So make sure you know what you are talking about in the essays.

Workload:

- three equally weighted exams, and occasional home works/ class assignments
