Millsap's tests are pretty easy IF you go to class everyday. He will tell you exactly what will be on the test and what not to study. If you do well on the first 3 exams then you don't have to take the final. Got an A in his class.

Millsap is nice & wants to help & get you an A & even tells you some Exam q's & a's in lecture but Not Recommended. His lectures lack serious structure & relevance which is why I dreaded attending his class. Exams r purely MCQs but Likely better choice professors for govt. Does give substantial Extra credit but it is Very time consuming. Easy B

Prof Millsap is a good hearted guy, he likes to talk about his life adventures and how the gov't applies to him, unfortunately he sucks at teaching it to us. He is nice and tries to be helpful but he's just not cut out to be a teacher. He hardly EVER gives a direct answer to a question and the lectures are useless, I don't recommend him at all.

Really easy. He's a very interesting individual. I literally just went to every lecture, purchased no book, check out his links, and ended up with an A.

Oh my goodness, this class was the worst thing. His course load is UNBELIEVABLE. He will give you 3 chapter reviews 60 questions each, 5+ online articles, 60+ powerpoint slides and you need to memorize ALL of this for the exams. Ridiculous. Do not take this class. You will regret it.

It's political science so it's an okay class. Millsap talks a lot but he only gives four test plus drops the lowest test grade. I say take the class do the packets take notes during lecture and the test will be a breeze.

Test questions are so specific and its hard to study for. He also makes you read tons of useless links for the exam and its a waste of time. Overall not that great of a teacher. If you have a choice, don't take him

First of all, Millsap has four tests, and he drops the lowest test grade. He has extra credit worth up to 25 points. I just finished this class; workload was tough but what do you expect of a college course, honestly? Not interested in Political Science, but I enjoyed learning my rights as a US citizen in his class. Overall a really decent teacher!

He is REALLY into his work for the gov't and the details of how the gov't works. I'm having to retake this class. His lectures are mostly him talking vaguely about gov't and often he goes off on a tangent, and he covers a slide or two. Test questions are DETAILED and hard. Take if you love political science. If not, find another professor.

Millsap's lectures are dry, but they help you on the tests because he will usually say what to study. But the website he uses is TERRIBLE. He types new announcements every day that you are supposed to read and get reviews from. The announcements are just a wall of black text and hyperlinks, 80% of which aren't important for the class material.

Oh my goodness, this class is so hard. I LOVE government, but this prof gives so much to study for tests. Unless you have a photographic memory, don't take his class.

I really liked his class i dont understand why people are complaining. Yeah, he gets off topic but his class was super easy. He gives extra credit was is fairly easy, in addition he drops a test. And his class is mandatory. I made an A in his class. To which I would always study the day prior so take him and you'll get an easy A.

He is a nice man, and he is willing to help you if you reach out to him. Class is not mandatory, but most of his tests are based on his lectures so it is best if you do attend. He gets sidetracked a lot, but other than that he's not a bad teacher.

This professor has had an incredibly interesting life, and he talks about it a lot. He teaches you nothing during lectures, but he doesn't need to. The tests are 50 questions and he gives you half of them to study before the exam. He drops the lowest test grade and offers tons of extra credit. The class is boring but take it if you want an easy A

HORRRRRRIBLE! DO NOT TAKE. HE ONLY GOES THOUGH 2 SLIDES THE WHOLE CLASS AND DOESN'T CLARIFY ANYTHING. HE TALKS MORE ABOUT HOW AWESOME HE IS AND TELLS USELESS STORIES. WARRING YOU, DO NOT TAKE.

Unnecessarily difficult and confusing. Even after studying tests are convoluted and overly detailed. Was an A+ student until this course, very much hurt my GPA. Unless you are capable of memorizing chapters of text about TX gov't, would find different prof. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Only for students who already love/understand government.

Millsap is a horrible professor.. Great person with interesting stories.. but really, REALLY, the worst professor I have ever had. Do not take this man. He is so boring in class, and the lectures are useless.

Has a lot of experience and knowledge with government. Sometimes he gets out of subject with his lectures but he does cover everything. He gives you test reviews which contain about 20-25 ACTUAL questions from the test. Each test I took was multiple choice and had 50 questions. There's extra credit opportunity. You will need the book.

He is a great teacher, very passionate with lots of real world experience. He is clear about what will be on his exams. That being said, study hard, he's a sneaky old man with his test questions. Really enjoyed the class.
