So this class' material was very subjective to the professor's opinion. First of all the book was his own work, which isn't the bad part. But our tests and quizzes could easily be argued for various answers. Even if an answer wasn't correct or didn't make sense, it was the correct answer because it was finalized in the book (which didn't make sense half of the time because of grammar and word errors). So like I said it was very subjective. We had a 20 page project due at the end of the quarter which was fine and I learned a lot from, but he gave it back to all 8 groups in a four day span. You can't tell me he actually read all of our projects. We got a B because we had low effort; if we would have gotten docked for another category I wouldn't have questioned it, but our group wrote 25 pages out of the 20 page minimum. It is a subjective class to the professor. Unfortunately, it is complicated to understand him but he would ramble on during lectures and would give us cases to read that we would have to return to act out over and over again in the next class session. He also graded us on participation, which wasn't fair because he surely didn't know more than maybe five peoples' names in the class. I just think class was a waste of time, and it was a fixed grade. I feel like I was a psychology experiment in this class. I can honestly say I have walked out of the class with zero retention of any information. There is a fat curve at the end because of how awful everyone does. Don't take him if you can.

This subject is very easy, but the test were ridiculously hard. The average was a 22/33 for one part of them. They had nothing to do with the slides and class work I actually don't know where some of the material even came from. Shani is a nice dude but the class is extremely boring and you have no idea what your grade is until the last class. The final is optional which was nice and he curves the class.

Unclear grading, but there is a heavy curve at the end. You don't really know what you have in the class until the very last week. The textbook is written by the Professor and it is quite dense in material which is really bad because the exams are only around 35 multiple choice questions with true/false. Best way to prepare for the exam is read the textbook and know everything because it is all fair game. Also, understand the purpose of each activity you do in class because you can expect questions like that on the exam. He grades the individual journals very specifically to the rubric provided in the syllabus so be sure to have that out when you're writing the journals. As a group, you have to do about 3 presentations. One of them was 20 minutes long, but it really wasn't that bad. In summary, curriculum is very unorthodox, exams are difficult and people tend to do poorly, curve at the end, have to do a good amount of work outside of the class but nothing too crazy, Rami will laugh at your stupid questions with his heavy accent, show up to class (he takes attendance) and put a good amount of effort into the assignments and you will get an A in this class, and some of the activities are pretty fun. Lectures incredibly boring, but pay attention to the bullet points because I saw a couple of questions on the exam that were related to the powerpoints, but the powerpoints is off of his textbook too.

Dr. Shani was very knowledgeable! I enjoyed many of the discussions we had throughout his course. I did not like the textbook at all, chapters were long as hell, it was hard to understand and, most of the time just confused me more. I did not like how the first midterm was structured. However, the 2nd midterm and optional final were much more manageable (power points) they really had you research and learn the concepts rather than reading a textbook and trying to figure out what you might be tested on. I did also like how he gave us our individual profiles before then optional final. (He gave the class a good curve) Overall a great class I would recommend it to future students.
