ANTH 3440
Herbs, Spices, and Medicinal Plants
5*****
Take his class!!! He's such a nice guy and a good professor. 2 exams and a final. 2 easy assignments were you have to go look at plants at 2 gardens. One big project, but it's really fun to do. He takes attendance occasionally. Easy A.

Pros: He was a really fun teacher and made the class really interesting. Herbfest was the major project of the year and it was actually really fun. I highly recommend this class.
Cons: His random attendance is inconvenient. I actually attended class but would miss about one class every 2 weeks. His random attendances were always scheduled for the day i missed... However, i'm not even sure if attendance is calculated into your final grade.
Take this class! His tests aren't too hard; they're all multiple choice and he gives a study guide (which i WAY harder to fill out than the actual test). You'll learn a lot of really interesting and useful information that you can actually use in life.

ANTH 3440
Herbs, Spices, and Medicinal Plants
5*****
Pros: He's been teaching this class for about 12 years now so he knows everything about the subject. He uploads all of his powerpoints online, but he mainly handwrites them during class on a Tablet, so you need to be in class to be able to understand his writing. The projects are easy and the class is fun, though it can get a bit boring after awhile.
Cons: There a lot of memorization, if you can't memorize things well, don't take this class. You are basically given all of the features of about 100 herbs and spices and are expected to know everything about them on the test.

This class can vary--some days it's really interesting and some days it's really boring! But Affolter is a nice guy, and he isn't "out to get" you or any of that. I would recommend the class!

Pros: -tests are long, but follow the study guide he gives you

-nothing hard to learn; simple memorization

-great teacher, very nice
Cons: -you will take a crap-ton of notes

-takes random attendance

Great class. The professor really knows what he's talking about, and the memorization aspect isn't too bad. You do a few out of class assignments, which are way easy. There is an end of semester project you have to do, but it can be fun if you make something you're interested in.

Pros: he's really easy to talk too and a really nice guy. he gives you all you need for the tests through the notes, and has a study guide. plus the class is just really fun.
Cons: there are some things on the tests you have to be in class for and listen carefully...like a joke he tells or a little fact that you wont think is important enough to write down, then it turns up on the test and you can't remember what was said about it.

5*****
Pros: The class is really easy and the subject is interesting, but the class itself it really boring. Easy A, and don't really have to attend class, but if you're looking to learn about this subject, it will be a great disappointment. It's all stuff you could read on the internet.
Cons: Quite boring.
