Comment:
I was taking more units than I could handle, so I failed this class. There are a lot of assignments and the tests are tough because he puts in a lot or trick questions. His lectures are long and boring, but the information and experience he provides is helpful. His syllabus did not help, it was not in correct order, and the dates were all wrong.

Professor Martinez is a cool teacher. He is retiring this year, but I was glad I had his class. His class can be boring if you aren't interested in the subject, otherwise his knowledge of many topics are very interesting. He will help you if you ask for help. For his tests you get to make a cheat sheet. You get many extra credit opportunities.

Mr. Martinez is a great professor. He is very passionate about what he teaches. For his final he lets you use a sheet of notes and gives you all the answers to the quizzes he gave in class and puts those same questions in the final. His class is easy. Do all the assignments and you will get a passing grade, it doesn't matter if you fail the quizzes

Comment:
Mr. Martinez provides most of the answers to his exams in his lectures so take good notes. His exams are a little tricky - he is not giving the grade away. He allows time to do film reviews and papers, he even accepts work via e-mail but get it in. Do not skimp on your answers - he is looking for detail. I typed most of my work. Good teacher.

He will set you up for FAILURE even if you are an "A" student. His study guides and class lectures DO NOT match up with his assessments. I'd rather read the whole textbook than listen to him give lectures. I wouldn't waste my time taking him. Very frustrating.

Warning: I don't recommend this teacher. He doesn't give you the credit you deserve on assignments (he doesn't follow his own syllabus). He is very unclear, especially in his quizzes. Topics discussed in class are unrelated, and he often fails to give a direct answer to questions asked by students. He hasn't responded to any of my emails.

Professor martinez is not vested in how you do. This man does not lay out a study plan at all and instead just sits at his desk and talks about stories of his past or pops in a movie. After handing in major reports via email he still has not even looked at them and that was last semester. Even after he confirmed reading the emails.

Comment:
One of the most interesting courses and professors I have had. I can honestly say that I learned a lot from him. The work is also not that hard, you just have to keep up. He tells great stories and has such an insightful perspective. Another great thing about his class is the history he teaches is not one-sided.

Prof Martinez is packed-full of history & interesting stories. He is 110% vested in the success of his students. He is very nice, thorough and FAIR. You are allowed to use notes on quizzes. In class assignments include film reviews (4). There are also 4 papers on 8-10 Questions/ Prompts he provides. All due dates are outlined in syllabus! Take him!

He is extremely smart and sweet,but his class can be hard to sit through. He gets off track easily and you'll have to rely on the book for most of the course information. But he will go out of his way to help you out.If you have time go say hi during his office hours,I did for a test, afterwords he asked about my major and gave me some good advice
