Have you taken Gender Womens Studies or Film Studies?

<p>Any advice? How did you like it and what's a good way to succeed with an A?</p>

<p>Do you mean as a major or take a course? I took film 25A -- wouldn't call it an easy A at all, but not difficult either. You have to have an interest in the subject; it's not just watching films and critiquing them. But very, very interesting, at least to me.</p>

<p>I mean as courses. What makes it difficult? I had a class in English where we did exactly that, watch movies and critique. lol but what's different about this class? If I enjoy cinematic related topics, will it be doable for me? I don't want to take something that'll bring down my gpa for the first semester at berkeley but I also can't really switch my schedule around unless I dont want to fulfill that breadth requirement. </p>

<p>Do you have to read or take scantron tests or is it all writing?</p>

<p>You'll find that in college, professors tend to stay away from scantron tests and move into the "essay" type of tests.</p>

<p>Yessss I love those. : ] I do horrible on scantrons but I'm really good at essays. At the college near us, they use scantrons sometimes and that lowered my grade in 2 classes : /</p>
