pols002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Class is relatively easy. You MUST attend all lectures bc all the info for midterm which is straight memorization is given to you. Ace the midterm and you don't have to take the final. The only book that you need to purchase is the Research methodology book, and the chapter summaries are graded in depth. Turn them in ahead of time to get reviews!!!

Dr. B is one of the best professors at Howard. He knows a ton about politics, government and anything and everything else. His research techniques go a long way and he is a great resource for students looking for internships and whatnot.

POLS002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Bangura is funny, witty and super nice. However attendance is mandatory and he does take notice. Be sure to sit in one of the first two rows. The country projects are vital to your grade but fairly easy. Make sure to do the side assignments as well. TAKE NOTES I cannot stress this enough. The notes are exactly as the exams.

Extremely helpful. Does make attendance mandatory & notices who has attended and who hasn't. He makes an effort to get to know his students. Make sure you sit in the front row of the row behind it. Basically go 2 class, take notes. Everything that he writes on the board will be on test. He does in class assignments & the country projects are vital

Professor Bangura is a good professor, very funny and entertaining;his accent is hard to understand sometimes. He takes the final and midterm questions from class notes. At the end, he made all homework extra credit. Come to class and do the presentation and you will be fine. We finished presentations 2 weeks before finals so we didn't have class.

Hes an extremely interesting teacher, has very useful information and makes jokes, by the time the class period is over you'll have fun. Only 2 tests and about 10 assignments. Pass Midterm w/ A, final exempt. works with you.

He is a good teacher. You have to attend class and take notes because the midterm and final are taken word for word from the notes. But if you do all of the assignments (which are pretty easy) your grades on the midterm and final won't hurt you. Not hard to get a good grade.

Awesome professor. Its basically a lecture class.NO TEST just a midterm,paper,and a final. Come to class because he takes attendance daily.He gives you the chance to turn in your final paper early so he can look over it and tell you what to improve. DO IT don't wait until the last minute to do the paper.Rarely uses the book. I got a B in the class.

TAKE HIM! He' allows you to re-sumit all papers to get a higher grade. You spend $20.00 on the NCUR journal (which displays previous students papers). He lectures all the time, very nice man. EASY A!!! JUST DO THE PAPER AND COME TO CLASS!!! DO THE REDO'S!

He is great! You should come to class because he takes attendance. However all of the assignments he allows you to resubmit for a higher grade. No tests...he just has us do papers. He also prepares you to present your research in a Conference
