PLSC 350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Huffmon is a fair grader, and probably one of the smartest people I've ever come across. He expects the best from students, as this is college. I'm terrible at math, so this class was no walk in the park. Yet he still made the class interesting for me. Do well on the annotated bib and other projects, and study hard for test and you'll do okay

PLSC 390 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Just terrible. All tests are essays (two out of class, one in class). The topics for the essays are extremely broad but he is looking for specific things. Either be a master in political science or drop the course. Takes FOREVER to hand back tests (the only two we had). Nice guy, terrible professor & teaching methods (or lack there of).

Dr. Huffmon is AWESOME! He is super funny and always relates his lessons to his life experiences (which are really interesting, ex: protesting a KKK rally). He assigns readings almost every class and then lectures on them the next class. As long as you understand the readings the lectures are most of the tests. Do the study guides though!

I was in the "majors only" section, and this class was amazing. Dr. Huffmon is a great professor; his lectures are interesting and the tests and papers were graded fairly. Many extra credit opportunities and attendance was not taken.

I like Dr. Huffmon. You will do good on your test as long as you know EVERYTHING on your study guide. He made the class very interesting and was not too hard on us since most of us werent plsc majors.

He is really nice, and give study guides for every test, he tells interesting stories in class to relate to the topics he is covering, and he really knows what he is talking about. He also gives extra credit and doesn't take attendance, but he is EXTREMELY loud when he talks, don't sit near the front.

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

I took this man for every class offered because he is that incredible. He's a great mentor, friend, and professor. He challenges you, but understands that sometimes you just don't get stuff. He works with you if he knows that you are really trying, and encourages you not to give up. Now that I graduated from WU, I miss the good times I had.

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

There's like three tests with very good study guides... so know the study guide and you've got an A... plus there like one or two outside papers which even I (how I dont know...) made an A on. Take him, and get your constitutional requirement.

The guy doesn't know what he's talking about. That's all there is to it. His tests are confusing, his lectures are boring, and he needs to quit talking down to everybody like he's the Messiah or something. Horrible teacher.

TERRIBLE. very unclear. lectures have nothing to do with test material. you must read the book and it's very long and detailed. must memorize details in book if you want to pass. 3 tests, if you screw up on one, you might as well drop.tricky multiChoice. monotone voice!1
