"Inspirational" "Clear grading criteria" "Amazing lectures"

Professor Millstone has a unique way of teaching that may intimidate some. He will know if you didn't read the chapters before you came to class. There are 3 tests and an optional final if you didn't do well on one of the tests, as well as a mandatory written paper. I learned a lot from him and would definitely take his class again, I got a high A.

"Gives good feedback" "Participation matters" "Get ready to read"

4 test, 2 required discussion boards and 2 extra credit. One research paper and an optional final exam. He does respond to emails, even though not very helpful. BUT read, read, read and you will pass. I found it easy compared to my Algebra class lol. I would take him again in a heart beat! Also, grades are points added up, not average :)

Let me tell you. This class put a lot of stress on me. Please read every little bit of the chapters given because he tends to use the stuff you read past on the tests. Outline the chapters. Do the extra credit discussion boards. Write your paper and you will pass. But this is not an easy grade!!! He is very responsive too so thats a plus.

Millstone is a no-BS prof, but he knows his stuff and is super clear with his expectations. if you want an easy A, don't take his classes. he is always willing to meet with students who need extra help, and he is FUNNY - he seriously missed his calling as a VO actor! i learned so much in this class, but he does expect students to be prepared.

Attempts to teach but simultaneously makes you feel incapable. Almost like a good cop / bad cop tactic, but mostly relies on the bad cop part. Pompous. Tries to foster class discussion, but shuts you down when you try to answer his questions. Don't take his class.

Great teacher. He will intimidate you during the first half of the class. This is to show the students what it will be like working under a lawyer. All tests are take home but expect to use 10 hours of your time to take them. If you apply yourself and show up to class, easy A. Millstone is wonderful! If you have questions he will help you.

Dr. Millstone is such a helpful, patient and knowledgeable professor. He likes to help student, and gives them confidence. I personally get a lot help from him. I took the online class, but I met him periodically. He even lend one book for me reading. Every time he smiles and patiently answers my questions. he is the best one. take it!

One of the best professors at ACC. LITERALLY cares about students and is super passionate about his teaching. Anyone with that significant of a career deserves to tell his story and me listen. Former A. Attorney General of Tx, need I say more? If your a lazy kid you will be weeded out so move along. If you want an education, take him.

Millstone is probably one of the most interesting professors I have had. I highly recommend that you take his class during the fall/spring semester because he gives you A LOT of information and expects you to know it for the exam.Use all of the study guides online as well as your notes. He also require a term paper.

Do not take this guy if you are doing distance learning. You will be left out there alone with no help from this instructor. He is rude and does not return emails.

Okay, don't be freaked out by Professor Millstone. He can seem rather intimating at first, but look him in the eye when you answer questions and you're good to go. I'm going to make a HP reference here, but hear me out. Millstone is like McGonagall; he's strict but in a way that you can tell he truly cares. My best professor yet.

The first day of class I was terrified. He scared the crap out of me. But once the class picks up momentum you really start to appreciate the way he challenges your thinking! He is one of my favorites! Take him if you can.

Excellent professor! Really tells it as it is and makes it interesting. He interacts with everyone, he gets excited about the material. Focuses on political thinking, as does the textbook. I'm involved in several grassroots organizations and learn a lot of relevant information.

He seems like a tough teacher and he can be scary, but he makes you think, and I appreciate that in a teacher. Tests are 50/50 textbook/lecture material. Keep up with the reading or you'll lose points on the tests, guaranteed. He likes students who speak up in his class.

I was nervous at first when I took his class. The lectures was very intense but every helpful for tests. Prof. Millstone might be very 'scary' during his lectures, but he is very nice and helpful after class. We had to write current events for every week, but he grades them every easy. Take him if you want to learn!!! I got an A in the class

Good Prof! Make outlines of the chapters & of course take good lecture notes. Doesn't make his tests 50/50 lecture/text. Sometimes he'll do more of one than the other and also throws in current events. Gotta be on your A-Game to get an A. Also, I made consistent eye contact & he never called on me once, I think I made HIM nervous haha <3
