As long as you are able to pay attention you'll get a lot out of it. If you have a hard time paying attention avoid his classes. Don't worry about missing a class, he'll spend half of the next class repeating material.

Comment:
The class is kind of boring, he repeats a lot of material from the class before but tests are pretty easy and if you take good notes and go to class you don't have to read the text. Overall not a bad class and TeBrake seems very smart.

Comment:
He is very knowledgable but tends to just go off on tangents and you never really know what to right down. He also tends to spend half of the class "recaping" what he taught last class. This is convient if you missed class, but a little annoying if you didn't. He is a very pasionate instructor and deffinatly enjoys what he is teaching.

Comment:
Tebrake is not the best lecturer I have had. Much better to sit up front to stay alert and catch everything he is saying. It is suggested that you read the book, long chapters so prepare for some hard core reading! TA graded everything easily.Go to class and take notes, it will save you from some of that reading!

Class was pretty boring. Teacher is very smart but when i had his class he just read off his slideshow all class..ZZZZZ. He'll answer all questions, but like mentioned before, dont expect this class to be very interactive.

Very informative class, very smart professor. Not an interactive class though, so if you're looking for one don't take it. Lots of material covered, and if you're interested in the medieval period (and lots about agriculture) 403 and 404 are great classes.

Comment:
He is verbose and incredibly articulate. He is a genius and I think he wrote a book over Medieval Agriculture, which explains a lot. The TA grades everything...He simply lectures for an hour and a half. I brought my laptop everyday and took notes like that, made it a lot easier. The class is not interactive at all. Sit up front to stay awake!

This is one of the most boring classes I have ever taken. It could be interesting, but it's killed history for me.

BORING!!!! Don't take this class first thing in the morning unless you want to sleeo through it. Has no respect for other students opinions and disgreeing with him will cost you at grade time. The tests and papers were generally easy as long as you went to class. However one of the most boring classes I ever took.

Dry lectures, very boring. He's clear in presenting his material, if you can pay attention long enough to absorb it. Two essays, two tests, all easy. TA offered use of her class notes as well.

He's a good teacher in class and his lectures are easy to understand. He's very vague with grading though..and very picky. When writing essays about books he assigns, make sure you give a huge summary.

This guy is kinda boring, be he is nice and his class is easy. His two required essays are easy, just book reviews. All you need for his tests are the notes, the books are basically useless so dont waste your money. Very easy course.

Uses every minute allotted. Moves very quickly and the exams cover too much material. Thousands of years of history covered in one exam. You must enjoy memorizing. I like this professor and he likes his subject.

Like others have said, tends to be long-winded but he does have some interesting things to say. He outlines the most important things on powerpoint.. easy class.

Classes are hard to stay awake in, but just show up and follow the slides and you're golden. Exams are tricky if you don't read the assigned readings, but if you read and go to class it's an easy A.

Comment:
Long-winded and hard to follow throughout lectures. He tends to get too bogged down in agriculture and related topics since it was his doctorate research, which can be painfully dull. All you need to know for exams and essays comes from course texts.
