POL 103W SP310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This guy needs to retire. Seriously, all he does is repeat himself over and over with the same speeches. Also this class should only be an hour long. He spends way to much time talking about drinking and his past. I only took the class because it was easy. Id rather take a harder class and stay awake than this .

POL-103W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class is very easy and he only grades you on a mid-term, research paper, and final exam. Never read the book, he will give all terms you need to know. Will not let you take mid/final if you are late. He calls you out in front of class and will make you feel an inch tall. Hard to believe Delta would employ someone like him.

POL103W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Take him if you want an easy A. I'm shocked the school lets someone like him teach. He is extremely easy and extremely lazy. 3 grades, 2 exams and a midterm( because he's too lazy to grade). He thinks little of women and acts like a stereotypical police officer. Very narrow minded and just an unkind person in general. Thinks the very worst of peopl

I dont think there is much he could do to make the class easier except take the test for you. As long as you come to class, be respectful of his minimal rules, you will be fine and pass. Lectures can be a little boring, but if you have even the slightest interest in the politics of our world today, you won't be too bored.

Mr. O'brien was an interesting man. He is grouchy but a good teacher. However, his class is pretty boring. He just talks at you the entire time you are in class. there is no homework and i hardly ever studied except for mid-term and our final. i still got an A. i would recommend this teacher to anyone who wants an easy A.

Mr. O'Brien was fantastic! I looked forward to his class every week. Only 3 graded assignments. Outspoken and passionate about government issues. Recommend him highly!

Ron O'Brien was a great teacher. Straight forward guy and pretty outspoken about his beliefs but overall an easy teacher and if you do your work, listen in class, and study a little bit you should be able to do great.

Best teacher at delta. not boring in any way! makes 3 hours seem like 1. only grades on 3 things, the mid the final and a paper. he likes participation and discussion. I learned more useful applicable information in this class than any other class i have taken. Beware the bell shaped curve! Ron is GREAT!

Ron is awesome. He's a politically incorrect guy teaching about politics. He makes American government really interesting, he doesn't drone on in a monotone, he provides his real life experience in politics, and shares some hilarious stories. Excellent instructor.

Mr.O'Brien is a great professor!!!He's got great sense of humor and keeps the class awake with his funny jokes.He swears sometimes but it's not a big deal.I like it!Who doesn't swear in now days.lol.He pretty much gives you the whole mid-term exam and expect you to get an A or atleast B.Very easy to understand and follow his directions.TAKE HIM!!!
