Very nice guy who knows his stuff, but can be a bit hard to follow. Very poor penmanship. Seems to focus his lectures on the wrong things, such as individuals over actual theory. But hes retiring so this seems irrelevant. Good luck to him.

Dr. Whistler is a very kind man who knows a lot about his subject. I always find myself able to take a lot of notes during lecture. His tests are hard, but if you dedicate enough time to studying, you can get a good grade. Three tests and a 10 page paper make up your grade. If you love political theories, Marxism, Fascism, Nazism... Take it.

I took him for Theory 1 and 2. If you do the reading and understand it, the tests should be no problem. If you don't do the reading and don't pay attention, then you will have serious problems. Complete all reading assignments before class and you should do fine. His study guides are really helpful for the test too.

He would just ramble about nonsense all class period. I mean my mother had him (20 yrs ago) and she told me not to take him but he was the only class left. I hated it every day. His test are ridiculous and he doesn't even give you an effort for trying. I don't recommend anyone to take him!

This guy sucks. No teaching ability, his tests are nigh impossible, and he grades like he didn't even read the damn thing. Avoid at all costs.

Lots of lecture, notes, and reading. Takes roll every day. Keep up on reading. Tests multiple-choice and short answer from book, and one long essay from lecture and book. Not a bad teacher, but can go off on tangents at times.

hard class. you do not know what to study for tests. takes attendance where you have to go everyday. his lectures are very hard to understand and keep up with. he talks about everything at once, therefore it is hard to take efficient notes.

Great guy...I thought he was interesting! He could use some help with his note writing ability...if you look down for 2 seconds, and look back up, you are completely lost on what his doodles are supposed to mean.

It is very hard to follow his lectures and you can't read his writing. You never really know what will be on the test. I read the chapters and listened and took good notes in class and still could never make above a C. I would not recomend taking the class...

This class was extremely difficult. The lectures were of no help, there was no point in going to class, and the text didn't cover the material that was tested on. I wouldn't recommend Whistler or his classes.

Okay, I know that it seems like I thought he was hard and, yes he was but, all you really have to do is pay attention, take good notes and buy the book! If you devote the time needed to read and study you can do well in the class.

His writing looks like a two year old's scribbles. That's all I have to say.
