His online class was fine but I dont like that his test gives you only 50 minutes for 50 multiple choices question and then you have to write a essay, so that not enough time for me, so differently wont be taking him again

I don't know what that "awful" rating is about, especially since the person hasn't even taken his class! Kline is AWESOME!

The reason why I have to drop his class is that I learned how ridiculous his exams are. His exams are 50 minutes long and you have to answer 50 MC questions each and you have to write an essay in it as well! There ain't enough time to write an essay! I didn't want to risk failure for this class which is why I dropped. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASSES EVER!

Comment:
Currently a student at Berkeley and back when I took Kline, I somehow learned a lot more less level of difficulty than I do from a lot of my Berkeley courses. He's better than a lot of my professors here. I miss him very much, his jokes, his stories, his raspy voice, his great understanding of broad historical topics. Kline made me a great student.

Comment:
As much a stand-up comedian as a history teacher, Professor Kline is extremely funny, but also very passionate and knowledgeable about his subject. Very honest with his feedback, which I personally find helpful. If you're a faint hearted, liberal-minded millenial who gets offended easily then this professor is not for you. I highly recommend Kline!

Kline if you ever read this... You the man. For once, I actually REMEMBER stuff I learned in a history class months after it's been finished. His lectures were very engaging, he made me appreciate learning history a lot more.

He is so funny and energetic, I like his class! Make sure show up to the class everyday, cause he doesn't require any textbook and he doesn't use textbook to teach, so you have to be there everyday for notes! Work for the exam and you will get an A!

Amazing teacher, the best history teacher I've had. Hardly any homework. Show up to lecture and take a bunch of notes. Watches movies/ documentaries fairly often. Tests are a little hard, just make sure you study.

Kline is funny but for 6A he did not use a textbook, canvas, or even a powerpoint pres. in class for lectures. He talks for 50 mins and you take notes (which is all you have to study for tests so if you miss something, good luck) and he talks FAST in lectures. Aside from the 3 tests throughout the quarter points are from notes you take on movies

He is THE MAN! Started off as a psychology major, but changed it to history because of him! Only wish I could be as great of an instructor as he is! Better take him while you have the chance because he said he's retiring. :( He will be the legendary history teacher at De Anza College. He's so relatable and down-to-earth, not a snobby academic.

Best history professor at De Anza. Kline is a lecture-HEAVY professor. If you don't show up and take notes then you will not pass. BUT that's all you have to do. Just show up everyday, take a page or two of notes and be on your way. That's most of the exam, he does have you read 10 or so pages each exam on your own. He manages to make the class fun

Ben Kline is an amazing history professor like no other. He incorporates humor into his lectures to keep all students awake and focused. He is super passionate about history and he will make you love history as well. The lectures do cover a lot of information, but as long as you are present every day and study, you'll be fine.

I already had his HIST 6A before going to 6B. He is one of my favorite professors at school. If you work hard for his class, you will not regret taking his class. I enjoyed every single minute of his class.

Kline has to be my favorite professor at De Anza thus far. His lectures are amazing and keep you interested whether you enjoyed history before or hated it. He has a special ability to make his students WANT to go to his class and learn more. I have taken 3 of his classes just for the sake of hearing more lectures. Hes an easy A, take the class!
