"Pop quiz master" "Would take again" "Big time extra credit"

Lockerbie gets a bad rep for being tough but it's really just all about doing the assignments and reviewing the notes outside of class. He makes it very clear what is going to be on the tests. Reading is important as he gives pop quizzes. I would recommend if you are actually trying to learn.

POLS 1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Attendance is not mandatory but gives pop quizzes which add up to 20% of your grade. Test are all cumulative and he does't give a study guide. The class is challenging for non- political junkies. He is very helpful if you go to his office hours. Deff buy the WSJ and do the summaries, up to 10 points add to each exam.

POLS 1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is tough. He is a nice professor, but doesn't really use his $$$ textbook. He uses the site though. Most of his test questions come from power points that he does not make available outside of class.

POLS1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice man and class usually isn't that boring. He gives quizzes often so don't miss too many classes. The book isn't used hardly at all. However, you do need to use the website he gives you to study for the tests. He really knows his material so he's easy to understand. His jokes aren't really funny but he knows it. I would take his class.

If you are willing to accept that you are in college and willing to do the work he is a great professor. He know his stuff. Go to class and take good notes. Has Pop Quizzes so you need to keep up with material. Study the online quzzes and power points and you will do fine.

VERY HARD CLASS. Usually you feel like you can miss a class or two before the semester ends, but not in his class. Attendance is not mandatory however if you don't come to class you miss a lot and possible a quiz. His test are ver difficult. Do ALL the online quizes (roughly 50 each). Very nice guy. Tries to make jokes but there not funny.

I really enjoyed his teaching style and I felt like he made the material very interesting. He really knows his stuff. You MUST read the book, and study the material he covers in class. A lot of people in my class failed the first test bc they didn't study the right stuff. I took another class w/him bc I enjoyed his teaching so much.

pols3330 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

he barely covers material in class on the test, requires many reading but never specifies to you what reading to read for a class unless you ask then he generally isnt sure, seems to not care about how his students do, very cocky and likes his reputation i guess. tests are hard, must read book and memorize material. stay awy for upper level classes
