I can't say this about all of my professor, but I actually did learn something. Attendance is mandatory... unless you're the one teaching the class. He tends to ramble about off-topic subjects, but he makes up for it by being "easy on the eyes."

Basic fundamentals course, no prior experience with politics necessary. Gives ample time for reading, little homework, some easy group work. Grade depends primarily on midterm & final. Read, engage, take notes on lecture. You will get an A rather easily if you do this.

His class is easy. Your grade depends mainly on your test which are not hard as long as you pay attention in class. He is fun. Hates the military but will talk about it a lot

This guy is a grouch and he'd be the first to admit it. He's not much for class participation, he'll often ignore raised hands. All that aside, I left his class with a much better understanding of politics and an excellent class reader that lays it all out very smartly. Estrada grades generously and despite his attitude is personally very attentive

He is good but he needs to make sure he knows what to teach and keep his students focused.

I hated this class. FIrst of all I hate Political Sciences and after taking his class I hate it even more! "You know what I'm saying?" Even though he knows a lot about the subject, half of the time I can't understand anything of what he's saying cuz he mumbles.

I half to admit he is an ok professor. Boring at times, yes, did I say boring! Well, he really is passionate regarding his desire to help his students but he I see a lot of the times, sees lazy students who just want a grade and thats it, hence, he loses interests and goes on off the wall tangents. Overall an "Ok" teacher. Nothing amazing!

LOVED this class! I didn't have much interest in Political Science before, but Estrada makes it fascinating. I learned so much more than I thought I would. The class starts off kind of slow with history of the U.S but gets REALLY interesting once he gets into the modern world we live in now. Take him, you won't regret it.

As a proud soldier, I'm probably the last person you'd think would like Estrada, but I REALLY did. Yes, we disagreed on many fundamental positions (and still do), but, as others have pointed out, he never made it personal when grading me. I have to say, that man's as fair as they come. I wish other progressive profs @CCSF would follow his example.

It is a boring class but an easy a. As long as your read your assignment you will be fine. He does not explain topics clearly and jumps around the bus. Hes an okay guy but not a great teacher,

At first, I was not fond of this class at all. However, I grew to like it. Participate in class and ask questions, or just stop complaining on how boring it is. Read assigned readings and understand them, because his quizzes/tests are based on them.

This class isnt structured well.He jumps around & doesn't discuss the readings entirely from week to week.He'll go over readings after we are already quized!?? Very Frustrating! The midterm is based on his readings & what he talks about in class. He will be testing you on things that he purely discusses in class.Be sure2take notes on everything.

Class is boring as hell, I agree with the people who said he rambles on and on to infinity and beyond about his personal life, such as how glad he is to have broken up with his exes. Nonetheless, the flaming hot chili paper by his numerical ratings says it all. Take his class if you want an easy A and are in need/want of some serious eye-candy ;)

His class is easy if you do the reading. End of story. However, be prepared to listen to him ramble for half an hour before actually starting his lecture. He likes to share about his personal life...so much so, he might as well give us his social security number.

He's hella lazy. He does not do anything, but he talks about his personal life. The only thing u can do to pass his class that u must read and remember the readings, because he never explains the readings in class. His class is so boring. I have learn nothing. If u are planing to take his boring class, so u have to ready to learn by yourself.

Pretty laid-back proff, he cusses alot. No homework but got to keep up with readings or your gonna fail his quiz's since its based on the readings. When the class is not engaging with him it's super boring. This guy will never wear the same shirt twice, he tends to lean on the chalkboard and grind his back onto it.

Learned so much from his Intl. Relations course. If you pay attention what he talks about is very relevant and important to what goes on in the world. He's very smart and knows the subject; unbiased. If you actually read the book and take notes and listen you will do well.

This class is super easy. The reading can be difficult at times but he talks about them in class. That being said, this class was horrible. He spends the first half of the lecture talking about nothing. Dont be late or later than he is he will call you out in front of everyone. But it's okay if he's 15 min late. Super easy, but super boring.

Awful! Could not keep up with this guy! He jumps back and fourth from different subjects making it impossible to keep up. I would not recommend him for pol sci 1, take another teacher!!!
