    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was easy to understand and the professor was understanding when issues came up with our tests ad would allow us to take it again if the website was messed up. It also forced us to post our opinions on different debates and ideas with information to back it up so that we fully understood what it was we were siding for.

    Course highlights:

    One of the discussions boards w had to write was about, whether voting should be reserved those with a college degree only, for it to stay the same, or raise the age. Everyone had different opinions on who should vote and why, Many made great points like even people who didn't g to college could understand the government better than a college graduate or people who are younger are able to be swayed more with other's opinion. It was a fun discussion and we continued to discuss the pros and cons long after turning it in after class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always back up any idea with relevant information to support in on the discussion board and turn it in as early as possible, since it is something you can finish in ten minutes. Read the chapters for the test, or at least skim it cause some questions are often verbatim from the book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Mack was an amazing professor who always encouraged questions and loved class discussions that pertained to the material of the course. He used PowerPoint for his visual aid in teaching the class and waited for every person to have the chance to write down every word from the slides. However, he covered a lot of material in just one class period (an hour and twenty minutes), but never strayed from his notes when it came to the tests. His tests are 20% from the book and 80% from his notes, and always 50 questions of multiple choice with only two essays the entire semester.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the federal government system that I never even knew existed! I was able to understand and cite each process of a bill being passed, vetoed, signed, overturned, etc. I was taught the many duties and responsibilities of the most important government positions (President, judge, senator, etc.), as well as the majority of the reasons that led to the most influential laws used today. My favorite section was when we were learning about how the senate and house of representatives worked with each other and what all their responsibilities pertained to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS copy down his PowerPoint notes WORD FOR WORD; it will save you so much time studying, especially if he stresses how important it is or hints that it will be on the test. Dr. Mack's class is an easy A or B if you take down his notes word for word and read the chapters he assigns. However, you can still make a B if you don't read the book, but 20% of his tests include information from the assigned chapters. No midterm, 4 tests total, always multiple choice, 50 questions, 2 short answer essays throughout the entire semester, and "final" is the 4th test but not cumulative, no extra credit unless told.
