PoliSci1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

By far the greatest professor I have taken while at PCC. I could write a book on how great this man is. He cares for his students & encourages them to make a difference in the world. He's the perfect example of how all educators should be. This isnt just a job or a way to make money for him. He put polisci in a whole new light for me, TAKE HIM

POLS 001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

An old soul with a lot of passion and many stories to tell. To get an A, just take the online quizzes, they're not hard at all since you will have two chances to take them. Memorably notable teacher who makes an effort to engage everyone. He even took our class photo for memories keeps! Highly recommended

Professor Juarez has so many stories and experiences that his students should not overlook. He has a lot of experience in his field and knows a lot of people in City Hall, where he worked for years before becoming a teacher. Juarez values Education and tries to push students to not give up on their studies. Take him, you won't regret it.

he is a great teacher and really cares about his job and takes it very seriously but it is up to you to keep up and read along because your going to be lost during his lectures and he will pick on you if he notices or if you don't participate. He is awesome and really cares about what is going on in the world and he expects the same from you.

Poli1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Honestly, do not take this man. He doesn't clarify on the material that is going to be on the final, he spends half the class discussing current events which have absolutely nothing to do with the exams. Additionally, he never answers e-mails when students have legitimate concerns about the course. Oh, and he favors some students over others.

Participation is a must, you can't hide, you will be picked on. He spends the majority of the time talking, if you miss a chapter you will get left behind. He does not follow the syllabus at all, you have to do it on your own and figure it out on your own.

PolSc1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This professor gives A LOT of chances, so there's really no excuses to fail. He basically has open extra credit opportunities all semester long. He's really funny, and he very obviously has favorites. He'd let his favs get away with walking in at whatever time or not show up for days. very flexible prof over all.

This class was sometimes fun, make sure you speak up, it will make the class interesting & more tolerable. I failed the midterm but still got a decent grade, grades on curve? Not sure. His class was fun over time but it's not for everybody. I enjoyed his class sometimes but panicked not knowing what grade I would get. Make an effort & you will pass

Polisci1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His class is a complete waste of time. He spends the majority of the time talking about current events and telling students his life story. Doesnt follow the syllabus and his grading is skewed depending on how much he likes you. Unclear and forgets things all the time. If you want to learn about gov/politics, take someone else

POLSC5196 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall this professor didn't seem to care about the class. He was not clear on what the final was to consist of, nor did he follow the syllabus(regarding exams and essays). I guess that's what you should expect from an adjunct professor. Probably had other priorities.

He talked a lot in the 1st class. No break at all. But, like he said, he'd talks less and less as we move on the course. He is actually a very nice man! He likes to offend people, because that is politics. you will get offended at some point. But, if you are an easy going person, you will find him amusing. Take him.
