    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to someone looking for a challenge. Dr. Wang is funny, but he really doesn't teach in depth. He only takes 3 grades all semester, and they're all test grades. Attendance is important because although he doesn't take roll, he asks questions about things discussed in class on the tests. In order to succeed in this class, you have to listen in class AND read your book. He grades very fairly. I feel like this course challenged me, and I ended the semester with an A.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were Dr. Wang's positive attitude and the challenge of having to actually read my textbook. This class taught me how to study and study well. I learned how the government is made up, how it operates, and how US citizens can contribute.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you must attend class and you must read your book. Taking notes in class is helpful as well. His notes on the board don't always make sense, so you have to write them in a way you can understand. To study for tests, reading the chapters and making flash cards really helped me.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Dr. Wang is truly a great professor that every college student needs to experience. He loves his students, but he will not make the class easy for them. He encourages discussions and opinions. He explains the US government for what it truly is.

    Course highlights:

    The powers of the president, current affairs in government, the important court cases of the past century.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay more attention to his lectures than studying the book. He will let you know what is important. Go to class!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class, especially with this instructor, because it was a blast. It will also give the student a pretty good overview of how the USA's political system works.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was in the way that the instructor taught it. After taking this course, I better understand the way America's political system works. I understand that a bipartisan system is a system that has two main parties. Also, thanks to this course, I learned that for a petition to work, the signatures on the petition need to be from people who voted in the most recent gubernatorial election.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, also take some notes, and last but not least, be sure to take notes. Taking notes in this course is the key to passing it with an A. As long as the student takes notes and studies those notes for the tests, they will pass. If they take notes and also participate in class discussion, they will have an A in the class at the end of the term.
