POLS 2314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: WD

Really nice teacher and conversations are really interesting, I actually looked forward to coming to class in the morning. But the quizzes were random questions and it was either you knew it or you didn't. Regretfully, I had to drop it or my GPA would have been ruined. Only take it if you can commit to studying everything.

POLS 2313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's a nice professor, no doubt about that. There usually was a quiz/test every week, & there was a study guide, that basically required you to summarize the ch. being tested on. She required 2 presentations, 1 in which you have to attend a public meeting & then present your essay. Take this class if you're not afraid of public speaking.

POLS 2313.19 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

Her tests are completely made up as she has admitted which wouldn't be a problem if they had something to do with the class. I learned only what I studied on my own, I learned nothing from her and possibly will mess up my GPA in the process due to her disregard for what she is teaching and tendency to avoid helping. I will have to drop this class.

She is a nice person, but a terrible professor. Her lectures are unorganized. There is not a clear idea of what will be on the tests. Her lectures consist of her writing "key terms" on the board and elaborating on them. She doesn't make the class fun, and is EXTREMELY subjective with the subject. Take this class with someone else.

POLS 2313-20 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

Teacher is very confusing. Teaches one thing and tests on another. Study guide provided at times but not aligned very well with exam. Teacher expectations are not clear, at all. Students are set up for failure. Beware this professor- she needs to be evaluated. Failure rate???

The test are hard because she mixes it up and has you guessing every time you take a test. Like the first test will be over just the notes. Second test might be over the book or both. The midterm was just a vocabulary test. Which would of been nice if she said that to start off with. Study guides are provided and there is a presentation at the end

Doesn't explain well on what will be on the test and pay very close attention to lecture because most of what is on the test comes from what she says. If you can take this class with someone else, DO IT!! Don't take a chance!
