He was pretty difficult; however, he made his requirements crystal clear. By the end of this class I had a tower of flashcards. Just pay attention to project requirements and you should be fine.

He left in the middle of the semester and moved to Washington D.C. He didnt leave anything for the new teacher at all and never responded to his emails. His last class was the class before the exam. He didnt tell us he was leaving until the class right before. If he starts teaching again, I wouldnt recommend taking him.

He's not a bad guy but his class isn't very interesting. Most of the beginning of his teaching doesn't have anything to do with government. On his homework you're more worried about capitalizing the wrong word than getting the answers right. He is very strict in grading.

He is very picky about the way things are done in his class and a very lazy teacher. He missed class ALL the time. he had to push the midterm back bc he missed so much & then didnt even show up on test day. This class is easy to pass bc of all the homework, extra credit, & in class assignments. go to class, do the work & youll pass

I barely passed his class and as soon as extra credit hit, he didnt show up for class to get it. I was confused, especially on the logical fallicies. He made them seem so similar and dry.

He is very strict about what he wants but makes it very clear. His class requires studying but overall it was interesting with a large part based on logical fallicies.

Mr. Quinnell is really a strict professor, but He just wants you to learn the material. He gives you so much extra credit that it is hard to not get some of it. I really enjoyed his class and learned. Print notes and highlight during class and show up to get most extra credit.

Mr. Quinnell is probably one of the worst teachers I have had at T.C.C. His ego is so inflated that even when he makes a VERY obvious mistake, he makes excuses. He has one project that you can re-submit for a higher grade, several tedious home work assignments, and in class activities. All he wants to focus on are logical fallacies.

He is very good when it comes to politics, all you have to do is attend class and pay attention and your guareented an A, project is a pain but midterm and final are easy as he gives all the questions he will use on it, also hands out 100 points of extra credit if you want it or need it.

Mr. Quinnnell is very strict when it comes to grading. He also cares about grammar(he should be a english teacher). He was late like 8 or 9 times out of the semester, and emailed us 4 times in advanced letting us know class was canceled. Dont need the book, however do both the papers. Print the notes prior to class, and highlight as he goes along.

Mr.Quinnell is very knowledgeable about his classes and is always open to answering questions. His tests are no joke, but they aren't impossible either. His class runs on a sort of point system, which makes it easy to keep up with your grade. Overall good teacher, i recommend him for sure.

If you pay attention to his explicit directions, for all that is required of you, and you can grasp the concept of flash cards for studying; his class was very easy. If you have problems with those directives, you will fail. Attendance is not mandatory, but extra credit is frequently earned by just being there.

Quinnell is straight up not a easy professor...he marks off alot of assignments that don't follow his directions exactly. What out for the policy comparison b/c everyone failed that assignment the first time it was turned in...so start on it early so u can get more points. Overall he knows his stuff, but the class is diffcult..so u must work hard.

Seems fairly knowledgeable, but he seems bitter. Would probably try another of his classes just in case I got him during a tough semester.

Quinnell is extremely anal about grammar, capitalization, and spacing in assignments...thats the only bad thing I can say. Outlines from the 1st day whats expected, grades come easily if you do the work. In class quizzes dont even count as long as you attend, theyre only to record who goes to class. I actually LEARNED a lot. Funny guy... Take him!

VERY HARD CLASS. If you have no interest in politics, especially other countries politics DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. Athough attendence is madatory of you, he is hardly in class. He gives chances for extra credit and to pull up your grade. Quizzes almost every class and you have to have atleast 3 correct answers to even get credit. he's nice though!

I would have to agree with the other comment on here, he is disrespectful of students time and is not in his office during posted office hours. He is strict with grammar and punt etc. but yet his notes have alot of typo's
