 this class DOES suck, dont get me wrong. However, it is so easy. He is such a pushover with grading that you WILL pass the class if you make even the slightest effort. there is a midterm (essay), final (essay) and one bullshit paper. Thats it folks, take him hes boring but cake

 lets see here: 1)a class had to file a formal complaint with the department head before he decided to show up on time - even after being late most of the previous semester. 2)he cant handle teaching history in chronological order, although it would make sense 3)his lectures should be IGNORED, they confuse the crap out of you, and often contradict the textbook and other history classes 4)he wastes an incredible amount of class time, time that could be better used shaving with a rusty razor 5)2 tests, all short and long essays, and a [dumb] paper = better do good on all of 'em, which is impossible

 Man, where to begin. Count on him to be late every class, from anywhere from five to ten minutes. Keep your mouth shut and your opinions to yourself if you want a good grade; he's extremely biased. His chicken scratch is impossible to read, both when he writes notes on the board or when he grades an essay. Personality wise, he is extremely [] unpleasant, especially at 8:00 in the morning. If you somehow wind up taking his class, here are my survival tips: Don't listen to the lectures, they are irrelevant. He will give you a list of terms to identify on the Midterm and Final. I just studied those few topics from the book, aced the tests with ease, and saved myself hours and hours of time to spend on other classes or yourself.

Subject: what a waste...  (Nov 06 2003, 02:50PM)

 This class is an absolute waste of your time. Unfortunatly for me, this is my 3rd, that's right, 3rd time taking world history I, man, do I ever wish I passed it now. Prof. Diamond insists that he wants you to know and learn more than just "the facts", but he stands in front of the class... spitting off just the facts, dates, and names. He is extremly hard to understand, LATE, and rude. One day I went to class with a running nose and every time I sneezed he had some crude comment to make -- why even BOTHER coming to class? He has a million excuses for everything - he had a conference, he had to drive from far away, he was out of town. He is a waste. If you want a good prof. for World History I take Larry Orton or Prof. Senecle (my first 2) -- they are both amazing.

 diamond stands up there and mumbles. He's unorgainzed, doesn't give a c*** about his job, and bascially just makes me mad. He flirts with some girl in the front row constantly which skeeves me out a little and is basically too smart to teach ...like, seriously do not take him if you don't want every ounce of energy squeezed out of you by the end of each class. He makes up the course as he goes, and his teaching methods are boring and non-effective. I really do not like teachers who have no interest in their own job. This guy is a joke and a really bad excuse for a teacher.

 ok if u want to get an A...forget it. if u want a B. good luck. i had him at 8 am and it took alot for me to get up for this class. the teacher is hard to understand when he mumbles and he just writes random notes on the board that u can't even read. attendance is required or he takes points off, he has to be the least organized prof ever. he comes into class with a bookbag with papers everywhere. he makes u go online and print out packets for class which are like 12 pages long. if u dont' bring it to class he will make the entire class do a presentation on it in groups. the tests are bareable but his grading is terrible on tests..tests are all essays and short answers..and to go along with it all the class is so boring..all he does is lecture all class and he goes through a chapter a class. so my advice is to not get him as a teacher or if ur stuck with him...GO AND GET A NEW PROF! or have a fun semester

 I started this class with an open mind, hoping to appreciate history. After the first few days with Professor Diamond, I wanted to hit my head with a huge rock every time I had to go to his class. Even though he made an effort part way through the semester to put notes on the overhead (instead of all over the blackboard), his lectures still suck. They are boring, and uninteresting. I didn't learn or understand anything that man said. Even if you do the reading he assigns, you still dont understand anything. Don't get me wrong, hes a nice guy, but he shouldn't be a professor. He should be one of those historians you see on the History Channel. Also, his midterm was HARD - he gives you 20 terms to know (for the identification section), and 4 possible topics for an essay. He expects you to be able to write tons of paragraphs on each concept on the midterm. I highly suggest that you avoid this guy at all costs, especially if you don't have a good history past.

 I can't hear him, I can't see him, for all I know he's not even there. I teach myself the material which sucks because it is lousy in the first place. He needs to learn how to enunciate.

 Dr. Diamond is way too smart to be a teacher, because he is horrible at it. His notes are all over the board, you cannot hear a damn thing he says, and he makes you study things he SAYS are going to be on the exams and then are not. Do not take him if you want to pass he is horrible!

 He needs to learn to enunciate. If you don't sit in the front you will never understand a word he says. Group discussions are like pulling teeth because he isn't clear on what he wants. He puts you into groups and lists 4 or so things he wants you to talk about and then just expects you to begin this in depth conversation about buddhists with 4 other people you don't know. He is very unorganized- his notes that he writes are all over the black board, it is impossible to tell which scribbled mess is the latest chicken scratch that you are supposed to be deciphering to write down in your notes. I'm sure he is a nice guy, it is just that education isn't the best profession for him. It is his first year, maybe he will get better.
