PoliSci 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took this class over a 4 week summer course, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it! Tellalian is an awesome professor and he just teaches the class, he presents the information and doesn't try to influence you but let you make up your mind for your self! Do the study guides they will help you pass the tests!!

Poli Sci 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Tellalian is the best instructor I have had at the Madera Center so far. Tellalian is structured and disciplined. He does a great job of keeping his opinions/comments neutral and unbiased. The class was difficult and challenging but I enjoy challenging. Do your work, study hard, participate when asked and you'll have no problem passing.

PolySci2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tellalian is one of the smartest and nicest professors at Fresno City. Yes, he likes to make jokes but it makes a political science class a little more enjoyable. The study guides are very helpful, but also pay attention and go to class. He incorporates the whole class with discussions and seems very happy to answer any questions during lecture.

POLI SCI2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Goes on tangents and uses excessive political jargon. Rarely gave direct answers. Its okay to say "I don't know". If you do the study guide you pass the test. Easy class but so boring. Study guide is chalk full of questions for a 50 point test, so excessive for a small test. You don't get participation points for laughing at his attempts at humor.

If you don't do the study guides, you'll most likely fail. The study guides are SUPER LONG (longest was 13 pgs) but if you do them CORRECTLY they will help tremendously on the exams. Also, do the extra credit! If you do these two things you should be able to pass the class. Not the most fun class but it's totally doable.

poli2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

One of the most boring teachers ever. Poli sci is already a boring subject so he makes it worse. I hated this class and him with a passion. I would not recommend this class at all. The study guides are way to long for the amount of questions on the test. he tries too hard to be funny also

Very well organized. It's very easy to get an A. Just study and turn in the subject reviews, and take advantage of the extra credit. I suspect the negative reviews are from lazy, unprepared students

study and turn in the subject reviews, and you won't have a problem. the negative comments must come from people who are lazy and don't study.

POLISCI 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This instructor is very well organized, and I learned quite a bit from this class. The study guides are pretty long, but are a valuable tool. Not only does he give extra credit for completing them, they are also great way to study. I can't understand all the negative comments. Hardest teacher on campus? I'm no genius, but have aced every test.

Polisci2 85649 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: F

Worst professor I've ever had. Does nothing with the book, the tests are based off 5 chapters but the study guide is 20 pages literally, which is suppose to be narrowed down to a 50 question test. Not possible. He doesn't like to answer your questions and doesn't explain the grading when you ask. Worst experience

Polsci 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C-

Non structured Professor who expects you to understand what he is talking about and retain his speaking but you cant possibly write down everything he says and he doesn't go off the book either so you cant use it either, terrible tests, he gives what seemed like a 100 question study guide with questions you or the book wont have answers to...

While I do have problems with this professor he is not all bad. Dont try to take notes without printing them online (I think its impossible) write down whatever he says. DO THE STUDY GUIDES! It is LITERALLY your test. And its worth 10 EC Points. He also writes his test with obvious answers. Honestly an easy A if you do the study guides.

Terrible teacher. He speaks down to students and when you ask him a question he seems to get irritated and doesn't want to answer it and makes you wait after class. His lectures don't follow the book. They bounce all through the book making it had to study.He expects everyone to understand everything he is talking even though it is a intro class.

POLSC8764 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I have this guy for Political Science 2. He is so boring; he knows lots about politics and tries to make lectures interesting by calling on random ppl to discuss subject. But he just ends up confusing you more. Really hard tests too; he expects you to make an outline or fill out a really long study guide to score well on test. DONT take his class!
