"Tests? Not many" "Tough Grader"

Worst professor I've ever had. He is rude to students & only talks about himself & Mexicans. I got stuck taking his class twice because the first time I was unable to sit through a lecture without having to leave because I was so offended. I DONT RECOMMEND this professor. The class should be called "Black & white people ruined the mexicans world"

"Get ready to read"

DO NOT TAKE HIM. I made A's on both my tests and completed all his assignments with 100's. However, I was unable to answer one of his questions during his "Question time" in class and he gave me an "x". I should have made an A but I passed with a C. He's unfair. Don't take him.

"Tests? Not many"

Gutierrez is not a good lecturer or fair grader. He is extremely opinionated and allows his opinions to influence his grading of students. I highly suggest not taking one of his classes. However, if you must take his class prepare to study on your own because he rarely, if ever, lectures about anything that is on the reviewexam.

"Lectures are long" "Tough Grader" "Papers? More like novels"

Horrible professor, he loves to hear his own voice. He also likes to try and force his beliefs on his students. If you do not believe the same way he does, he will try to embarrass you. He doesn't answer emails. He doesn't use Blackboard. I did not know what my grade was the entire semester. He just didn't show up for class for like 4 days.

Awful teacher. Do NOT take him. Tells you your test will be over your review and then you take the test and half the questions you have never seen before. Rude and not helpful at all. Do not bother emailing him, he will not reply. Worst professor I have ever had. I will probably end up with a C and this class. He is ridiculous.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Don't take! I took this guy for political science and all he talks about is Mexican people and how they have been discriminated. You can **** through the papers tho and the tests are straight off review that is 150 questions for a like 30 question test. Won't even need the books that he wrote himself.

I took this class during the Maymester, and it was incredibly easy. Dr. Gutierrez is a nice enough guy who wants you to pass. Yes, there is a lot of work, but what should you expect from a 4000 level course. There was lots of reading, a 10 page paper and one presentation over a book. Overall, a nice prof. and rather simple class

If you want to learn absolutely nothing about actual government and everything about why "the man" has been keeping this prof. down, this is the class for you. He also does a great job of making his students buy a book he wrote that has zero to do with government.
