Literally awful. You will learn nothing about government and hate going to class.

POL2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

If you get offended easily don't take his class. He has a harsh sense of humor that affects every race and religion. He doesn't discriminate, he tells it how it is in a very clear way for all of his students to understand. I personally really enjoyed his class and learned a lot. However, the amount of readings that will be on the exam is outrageous

POLS3334 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He does not like questions. Pay attention the first day of class. He made an assignment that day that was 10% of grade but not calculated in the syllabus grade compilation or mentioned in syllabus. Then he asked for assignment a week before class ended. He is rude. You should make a lot of friends in his class. And exam questions come from review.

POLS2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

You use two books that you never really use. the only useful book is the texas politics not his book. He loses papers so either make a copy of what you're turning in or don't take him. The test are exactly like his review that he gives. If you don't pass his class you're just that lazy it's really easy to pass his class

POLS2312 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He really makes you get involved with the political process. He is also hilarious and has the guts to say things he feels we should here. He is a little unorganized though, sometimes just his assistant showed up to class.

He was easy. He only talked about mexicans though and got off topic a lot of the time.

The class was interesting but he did not really talk about government. He gave study guides for the exams so as long as you studied for the exams you would do well.

He has such a strong Mexican agenda it's not even funny. He will shove the Chicano activist movement down your throat as if nothing else in Texas politics matters. Also, he requires you to buy 2 text books HE helped write/wrote. Also there are only a few chances to make grades so you better ace the 2 chances he gives you.

POLS2313 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I don't recommend to take him at all. He's a nice guy but very unstructured, he'll give you huge amounts of reading between 2 textbooks and the test anything from both without any direction on what you should focus on. Also there's only two tests which make up your ENTIRE semester grade so you better do well on both.

Class was pretty easy however lots of work involved. You will learn but it is fairly small compared to the work load. Gears too far to the Mexican American side of every argument however the points are valid 95% of the time. Tests are straight off the reviews but the reviews are 5 times the size of the test. An "A" is attainable with some effort.
