"Hilarious" "Respected by students"

He was one of my favorite teachers at Fullerton college. His lectures are entertaining and funny. He tells you what to put in your noteswhat will be on the test. If you pay attention, show up, and read you will pass. I didn't think I would like gov but he made it interesting. But don't be late!

"Lectures are long" "Tough Grader"

Conforti looks like Dr. Phil. Don't take him unless you're actually into political science. He has a black book and its a must have! I usually studied a bit before tests & ended up getting Bs because of his curve. Other than that he is very sarcastic, & not funny at all he always ends up talking about off topic subjects for half the class.

"Tough Grader" "Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass."

When he says be on time... he means it! There's only 3 exams in the class, 1 extra credit essay and 2 or 3 take home mini assignments. The black book is the most important book because it contains all the materials for the class and he includes 2 study guides inside per exam. This is one of those classes where you can't cram at all.

"Get ready to read" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Conforti is an amazing professor. SUPER funny & very smart. Knows his subject well. You MUST pay attention to lectures and go over notes, because that is about 80% of his tests. Honestly, not a hard class if you keep up with reading and study his notes! Everything he says will be on the test, IS ON THE TEST. Not a boring class at all surprisingly!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Amazing lectures" "Tests are tough"

Funny and sarcastic professor. Old school expectations(will not let you in if you're late). Multiple choice tests, but it's A LOT to remember. STUDY is a must. Most if the test is on his lectures. Lectures are anything but boring(surprisingly) because I'm not very interested in poli. Sci.

"Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Respected by students"

Love this class! Look forward to coming at 7AM. Pros: No HW!! Great lectures, loves what he does, learning so much ! Cons: He tends to get off topic a tad too much. Lot's of reading (about 4 hours a week to keep up) but it's pretty interesting. I even enjoy reading the book Man of the House. Take him! Wish he taught other POSC courses!!

"Respected by students" "Tests are tough" "Get ready to read"

ANALOGY A child is hungry. Adult feeds the child a spoon full of food & keeps shoving the food in the child's mouth. The child is so FULL heshe regurgitates. The child is back to hungry. The student wants to learn. The teacher overkills on homework assignments. Student can't retain anything and regurgitates all lessons and learns nothing.

"Tests are tough" "Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

Excellent content. DO NOT do the course ONLINE. Minimal interaction. The amount of homework given is unrealistic. Outlines, factoids, etc. provided to study for the exams "as if" the majority of the material will be on the exam -- not accurate. 10% or less of the material provided will be on the exam questions. Not a class for working adults.

Mr. Conforti is an excellent professor. I highly recommend his class. You will learn a lot and you will never be bored. If you attend every class and do all the reading and study, you will get an A. Prior to his class I did not like political science, but I very much enjoyed the class. It's a must take. By the way, plan to be on time to his class.

This professor is hard as hell. He is a good teacher. you have to attend his class in order for you to get a good grade. he writes his test and expects you to know the material. he is educated and knows his stuff well. For those of you thats enrolling for his class I recommend that you have to start a study group because if you dont you will get it

From the other comments, it seems as if he is a great in-person teacher. However, online his instruction was definitely lacking. He does email out some study guides that are pretty close to the tests, but God forbid you have any QUESTIONS! He refuses to answer any of them. He also threatens that if you email fellow students, you will be dropped.

Really easy class I highly recommend. He is very funny and interesting. I never opened the book once he goes off of the blackbook and tells you before what you need to study for tests. He's very clear on what he wants you to do. Take his class

This class is interesting and I am not even a polsci major. He tells funny stories and gets distracted often. No homework just 3 tests pretty easy. Attendance is absolutely mandatory. I would take him again!

Dr. Conforti is one of the best Professors I've had a FC. He has a sarcastic, funny sense of humor that kept me awake even though it was an evening class and been in other classes since early that morning. I learned a lot, take him!

Pol Sci 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This class was not easy by any means, however, his lectures were incredibly interesting. I took him at 7am and honestly looked forward to going to his class. Make sure to do the extra credit essay at the end of the semester, especially if you have a borderline grade and want to bump it up. Bumped my grade up a whole letter grade.

Took his online PoliSci class. The ONLY thing required for the online class is the four exams, 100 points each. He gives you tons and tons of practice tests and work to study, so you have plenty to work with. He's very clear about what to do and what not to do. Study what he gives you and you'll get an easy A.
