Comment :
I will only recommend this course to people who don't slack. And I mean not a single slip. Sassy!Powell expects you to do all the homework, get 80s in the assignments, quizzes, tests, and he expects you to not have a social life or take any other courses. Seriously. He said that the first day. It's a course that will whip your ass, but you'll feel super satisfied when it's all over and you've walked out with a high 80. This course is either a pass or fail - people don't usually sit in the 50/60 range. Hardest english course - but rewarding.
