Had the Raven.
Any advice on the guy? Seems to have a very dry sense of humor
The Raven is pretty funny (although you're right that he's got a dry sense of humor), and he will do a good job of teaching you Civ Pro (at least I think so). He will focus on the rules themselves, not the policy. So I wouldn't worry about the why as much as the what. He's a tough grader, but he's pretty fair.
If you have an aversion to looking foolish, make sure you do the reading well enough to get through cold-calls. He doesn't have much of a pattern to his cold-calling, so you can't really see it coming, and he's one of those professors that will just straight up say, "No, you're completely wrong. What's wrong with you?" So you've been warned.
He's not bad, though. I think you'll enjoy him.
