Dr. Kim is a great teacher and he knows what he is talking about, it is just a little hard to understand him. There are only 3 tests and a couple short assignments you have to do. His tests are fairly easy, takes everything from the study guide and puts it on the test. But his lectures are boring but overall the class is really easy. He does attendance quizzes or some sort of participation in class almost every day, so make sure you go to class even though attendance isn't necessarily mandatory. Make sure you read powerpoints and your book, it will help you understand.
