POL200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Jordan is very knowledgable and extremely smart. If you read and listen to his lectures you should do well in the class. Do NOT bs his papers and have your highlighter ready for the passages he reads in class. Tough class but incredibly rewarding. If you're interested in really learning, take Jordan.

Jordan is great for GBK. He regulates discussion better than a lot of GBK profs, and he's very reasonable with assignments. He makes discussion fun, and he's a really nice guy. He grades papers fairly and he's very helpful.

His classes are not easy, but they are extremely rewarding. Lectures are entertaining. His quizzes are challenging. His essays require actual thought--few people make As on them. You work for your grade in this class.

POL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Participation is key. You need to read the assigned text in order to get anything out of the class. It isn't a bad lecture class, but I would advise taking someone else if you are not a strong writer. I have yet to figure out how he grades essays because the responses I get on my content are not what he asks for in the prompt. Hard to appease him.

POL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is really nice guy. This class is pretty easy. Just take really good notes in class and that will make the quizzes a breeze. He is a really hard paper grader, but go to him and let him read it before you turn it in for advice it helps. He is super cute too!

pol200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Will Jordan earnestly attempts to connect the text with any and all interpretations possible. Personally, I enjoyed the class but beware a paper written for him requires more than the run-of-the-mill last minute typing.

READ and Participate in class! Papers are easy as long as you are good at writing, i.e. if you do well in FYS, you will do well with Dr. Jordan.

his class was harder than what i expected for a 100 level course. quizzes were not difficult but dumb and also was a hard essay grader. the final was very easy if you memorized and reviewed your notes many times.

Dr. Jordan is not an easy professor. But he is smart and always comes to class imacculately prepared. He's just a really nice guy.

Even though you can't avoid any of the poli-sci teachers at Mercer I would suggest to try to find some way around Jordan. 3 six page papers for every class and he is a pretty hard grader.

POL everything Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I have been with Jordan for a few years now and I just don't get him. He is a nice enough guy, but he seems to be lacking something--maybe it is just experience. He is taking on classes that he has never taught before and failing miserably (despite what his peers will tell him to his face). Take him for theory, but otherwise, stay away!!!!!!!!!!

POL 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this class. His lectures aren't too terribly boring and he will tell lame jokes to keep it more interesting. The readings can be boring, but take good notes and study them well and you'll do fine on the test. I am thinking about minoring in pol sci after this class to have more classes with him

POL 372 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very interesting class. If you don't write good papers, don't take this class. In addition you need to enjoy class discussion. If you don't talk you're probably not going to get a good grade. An A/B+/B is easily obtainable.

pol. theory Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

His class is exciting if you like discussion. Talk in class to get a good grade. His tests re hard: if he reads a passage in class, it will likely be on the test, which is paragraph id and explanation. A lot of reading. Great for phi and pol students. Jordan knows his stuff and is enthusiastic. I highly recommend him. And a hottie!

Dr. Jordan is a really nice guy. He could be a little more assertive. Don't let his demeanor fool you, however. Getting an A in his class is not easy. My class was most impressed with his extremely neat appearance. His tie is always almost distractingly straight.

Dr. Jordan is a new guy, but he is good at teaching the material on our level. He isn't the most interesting. But he does sound sexy when he has a cold though...

Dr. Jordan is a very nice guy, but his class is hard. We read A LOT and basically he lectures all the time. =( He is a VERY hard grader on papers...

He is a new and he is very nice. His grading can be hard at times...he is stingy with giving you points. There wasn't many A's in the class.

He is new and not too difficult. He covers the material in the text and does not grade papers too harshly as long as it connects to material. Take him if its your first 300 level class.
