PS 2130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

LOVED HIM! His class was super interesting and I actually went everyday even though attendance wasn't mandatory. I loved how he devoted the beginning of each class to discussing current issues. He is super nice and funny and cares about his students. I will definitely take him again!

2130 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's so intelligent and witty. It's awesome once he warms up. He respects students who speak up and he's brilliant. I would love to take another course with him. Just make sure you know what readings to do out of class b/c it becomes confusing. Overall, he's nice, approachable, funny, honest, intelligent. I enjoy him and he's hilarious.

PS 2130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This class is not a simple one but is certainly worth the work. I took him knowing he was the more difficult professor but I learned so much while a friend of mine who took the other state and local professor learned nothing. Only 4 short papers all semester. Show up to class, be involved in discussions, and study for exams and you'll do fine.

PS 2130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Amazing professor. He knows exactly what he is talking about. Go to class and take notes, and you will ace the class. The tests are not hard at all. He will answer any questions. It doesn't hurt that he looks A LOT like Bradley Cooper also. Take him. You won't regret it.

Newmark is one of the best professors I've had, his lectures are really stimulating and he knows what he's talking about. He's really attractive too so I actually paid attention.

Dr. Newmark is a great friend and mentor, and he has offered me guidance not only in the class room but in life on numerous occasions. I would highly recommend his classes; he knows the material, his tests are hard, but predictable, and he makes class interesting.

Newmark is very challenging, but a great teacher. He does a great job of teaching the class from a neutral perspective. He makes even the most boring subjects seem interesting. Be sure to read the textbook and the NYT headlines. Attendance isn't mandatory except for recitation, but he notices who comes. Go to his office hours if you need help.

PS1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

No point to even going to his class. Tests are 100% from the book on minor details. Not a word he said in class is on the tests. Also, he barley puts up any grades making it near impossible to get your grade up after one bad test or exam

Okay, the tests and stuff are easy IF YOU STUDY. It is not word for word from the notes but he posts quizzes for you to take and he gets a lot of questions from those. Class is not mandatory BUT he does not post notes so you have to get it from a friend. His class is challenging but worth it if you need it. He is cool and witty.

Newmark is a witty professor, attendance is NOT mandatory but he will definitely keep an eye out for those who skip. However he is extremely cheerful and makes Poli Sci interesting for those who take it for gen ED. Definitely recommend, very helpful outside class. Read the newspapers, questions from big headline articles are on the tests!
