Gvt243 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Class is easy, he does go off topic but it makes the class more entertaining. He is a good teacher and knows what he is talking about. Not much homework, just a paper and a final. Would definitely recommend him.

GVT243 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I love him! What the other rater said was right, he'll take the time to help you until you understand and like a dad to most students. No homework beside maybe a few quiz or paper. Reading isn't really mandatory but you should.. you're paying for the class so take the time to read and know the material. Not hard when you literally only have to read

Gov 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good guy and all but sometimes he is a little too clear where he'll go off in 30 minute tangents that go off topic. However he is concsciensus prof. and will help you out.

GOV 352 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Boring, goes on. BUT he teaches the book and tells you if he is not. Gives you the questions and the answers beforehand. His tangents are amazing and he knows a lot. If you are thinking of law school, take him.

Con Law GVT 642 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Don't bother taking anything from him if you're a grad student. He teaches to the under grad level, goes off on too many tangents, and basically is a big waste of time and money. Easy A, but I'm ready to gnaw my own leg off before the break. He may know his stuff, but he doesn't teach it.

Too good of a professor to have just once. He loves to talk, but well worth taking at least once.

I've taken about four classes with him. He's a good guy who cares about his students and knows his stuff. He is easy going too, so you won't get overwhelmed.

GVT 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ive had him for three classes. He is always late and doesnt take attendance. Somewhat boring, but he doesnt care if you dont pay attention. There is a midterm and final. One class also had a paper. The exam questions are given out beforehand. Easy going and nice.

He knows his stuff as far as Constitutional Law goes. It is a lecture class, so make sure you have coffee, but he teaches it well.
