This class is harder than I expected. Some of the questions on the tests are super vague things he mentions once, so you have to pay attention to every little thing he says. He's a funny/nice guy, but it kinda sucks that you only have two tests. By the time you see how his tests look, you've already screwed up half of your grade.

Most difficult class ever. No exaggeration. Do not take unless you're ok with a D. Got a 4.0? Not anymore. Impossible to get an A. Incredibly difficult to get a B. Study for 20 hours to get a low C on the test, if you're lucky and hit on the buzz words he finds fancy. His ego could feed Nigeria.

Dr. Connor is the man. I was dreading Political Science, because it's hard for me to understand, but he made everything really comprehensible and interesting. He is so fun to listen to. Study hard for the tests and go to class. Beware the common final. Dr. Connor rules.

This class was the worst idea I have ever had at MSU. DO NOT TAKE. He has a thing against grade inflation and proves. He purposely gave me a lower score on the paper to screw me out of an A. He is a smart guy. I wish he would wise up about his methods. I didn't learn anything, except how to cram useless information.

I spent approximately 18 full hours studying for the second exam in this class after getting a 60% on the first one, and managed a 68%. Department head: can you say egomaniac?

No matte what people say about him for PLS 101, if you're one of us unlucky ones that has to take PLS 103, it's a piece of cake if you watch the videos. He doesn't make the tests hard because I think he already feels sorry for you that you have to take that class.

This class is only bearable if you've had Political Science before, but if you're new to it, I would definitely get another teacher because this one makes you read an extra book, which is just stupid, and he is basically a mean sarcastic guy. NO THANKS! (Save yourself and get someone else!)

If you have this guy in PLS 101, you need to drop NOW!!! There are so many other good ones that DON'T add an extra book and actually teach you what's on the common final. I truly wish I would have dropped. This class was the worst choice I've made in college.

He is very nice and sarcastic…he tries to make the subject interesting. Overall he is not that difficult. He tells you in class exactly what he wants on the test. Just put on the test what he says in class and you are fine. So yes, you have to go to class. He isn’t boring and keeps you entertained.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR!!! If you notice the "smily face" comments, you will realize they all say "this is college, people," and that is because they have turned into one of Connor's clones. That is NOT how college should be. You should not have to dread going to every class because the teacher's an A**! NOT WORTH IT!

INSANELY hard class. I am no fool, studied very hard, talked to him repeatedly, barely passed. Tedious, sarcastic, and worst of all, a ton of time studying for a subject that had little or nothing to do with my major. GET OUT NOW!

He is a sucky teacher. Everything went right over my head. Don't expect a good grade unless you have 20 extra hours in your week to study because he will pick the tiniest example in the book and put it on a test. If you are in there, DROP!!! I wish I would have.

I enjoyed this class a lot, but don't take it if you're pretty soft skinned or get offended easily. Dr. Connor is extremely sarcastic, rude, and self-admittedly mean. He won't give you a break and you definitely have to work for your grade, but you will learn a lot.

This guy was horrible. He was great with understanding students but a very difficult teacher overall. Hard to understand and follow. I would take someone else.
