Gov 2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Powerpoints come straight from book so dont get book. Class is boring but so easy. Only need to pay attention on review day b/c he goes over all ?s on test. On the 1st test we didnt do as good as he expected so he dropped that grade & made the next review & test easier. Only 2 test and a final (all non comprehensive)He wants everyone to make an A.

GOV2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

I took him for Texas Gov. and overall it was an easy class but very boring. He rambled about a lot of material that wasn't on the tests and then did a test review before a test. He even rambled during the test review. I studied all I could before his tests and managed to make an A. Would not recommend him unless you like to stressfully cram study.

GOV 2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. B is very informative and clear. He teaches exactly what is going to be on the test and he constantly lets you know what is going to be on the test. If you come to class and pay attention, you will do great. No need to get a text book in his Tx government survey course, he teaches from the powerpoint and lets you know what is exam material.

Dr. B is very nice and his class is super easy. Unfortunately I felt like I was taking an independent study class. I didn't learn anything other than what I researched on my own. Take his class if you need to bump up your GPA, but not if you want to learn a lot.

GOV 4613 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took his Gov of Western Europe class and learned nothing about Europe. He wanted to let the class decide how to weight the grades. I had to spend most of 4 class periods listening to people bicker over it. He spent most of a class shoving his anti gun control views down our throats. Repeats himself, never stays on topic, can't control the class.

GOVT2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

SUPER EASY CLASS!! EASY A+!!! Nice teacher, but he repeats things and the class is boring. Bonus points on final for perfect attendance and proof of voters registration card. Tests are off of PowerPoints posted on Blackboard. Attend review days, because he literally goes through the test in front of you. GA responds to emails quickly!

Dr. B is a great teacher! If you're taking TX gov take this class. Pretty easy. Gives very thorough reviews before each test and answers any questions. Just pay attention to the reviews and you will easily pass.

I abslouletly adore this professor, he is a retired colonel in the army, he is a great teacher, and further more his is great and respectful towards his students, I hope that I could become half the man that he is. He has opened my mind and my eyes about what is going on in this world and we could use more teachers like him. Good job Dr. Belfiglio

Dr. B, a leading authority on ancient Rome, is an excellent professor who employs the socratic method thereby cultivating engagement in the classroom and encouraging a higher level of thinking. Dr. B genuinely cares for each of his students success, but if you do poorly in his class, it's because of YOU. All exam reviews are quite thorough, indeed.

I work hard to prepare and teach students about the dynamics of American and Texas governments. I emphasize the importance of voting, jury duty and otherwise participating in the American democratic process. I enjoy advising students, watching their smiles and excitement during graduation ceremonies, and writing letters of recommendation for them.
