    If u need a gened in social science take Soc 100, its easy and with pintar u should have no problem getting an easy A. All you have to do is go to lecture, and make sure U DONT BUY THE BOOK cuz u dont need it and u'll save yourself $80. Favorite class that I have taken at UIUC. Make sure you get a TA that you understand, Ezekiel Flannery was awesome, also. You can tell she knows what she's talking about, definitely take SOC 100, as long as you moderately study for the midterm and final, its an easy A. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    lecture is hard to pay attention to because she doesn't use slides or overheads. All you have to do is print off the study guide and listen in lecture, read like 20 pages a week, and watch a movie and you will get an A in the class. She obviously loves the subject she teaches. ...Continue reading

    The most amazing prof i ever had, shes funny, energetic and teaches the material better than anyone else will ever be able to. She never gives the views of conservatives. You will leave the class a democrat. She tells awesome stories. Don't do the reading ...Continue reading

    Great Professor! She gives all the possible questions on the test. Don't bother doing the readings except for your discussion section. Very interesting class. Interesting class and way of going over material. You never even have to open the book if you go to lecture.... and there's a movie about once a week.... very nice four hour class! ...Continue reading

    Lectures are extremely clear with testable material to follow along with. She does express her views, but she wouldn't grade you on your views if they are different from hers. (get an easy t.a.) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Testable questions make studying for exams incredibly easy. Very traight forward and knows her stuff. Interesting and fun person. Go to class and she tells you exactly what you need to know for exams (which aren't worth much). My TA was awful but it didn't affect my grade. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This was a great class! If it were just her class you had to go to, I'd recommend it to everyone strongly however, you have to attend a discussion section, and my section leader was abysmal. Take the class, suffer through discussion, and be better for it. ...Continue reading

    If you need a gen ed, this is one of the best ones to take with this professor. I got a 101 on both the midterm and final. She gives (or did give) testable questions that if you fill out during lecture end up being a great study guide for the big tests. Also her commentary on the material was so helpful. She supplements the material with experiences from her own life. Great teacher! ...Continue reading

    Pretty easy class as long as you are willing to attend lectures, post on the class messageboard, and read 3 articles every week fairly entertaining lectures with good stories. however, pintar tends to make whites feel awkward and out of place and caters to the minorities in the class and how bad they have things. got sick of it ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Just know the testable material and you're good to go. I recommend it to everyone! If you need hours or if you are taking hard classes, this is a great one to add to your schedule. There is only about an hour of work a week (if you do the discussion reading) and she gives you the answers to the tests in class. She's funny and class goes by really fast. ...Continue reading

    Not as easy as everyone says. Although the class was ridiculously easy, I found her to be extremely irritating. Her made up stories, many about past boyfriends, as well as her Caucasian-aimed guilt trips, got really old, r Movies every Friday about race and racism. If you're white, she's a nightmare. If not, have fun. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    I felt that she just went over too many things that were very difficult to place in a test. You do need to go to class for the films because there are usually 15 hard questions about the movies on exams. Also, my TA could barely speak English so that was a big part of the problem. I still got an A in the class but I worked hard, especially for a so-called easy 100 level class. She also needs to give more grades because your grade will either be really great or poor! I went to almost every lecture and I think I have a very suffering grade! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    I've never seen a professor push their personal views on their students more than Judith Pintar, and I think that is quite unprofessional. Nevertheless, a very easy class if you have half a brain. ...Continue reading
