    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nice professor who makes the course interesting. Most of it seems like common sense while also introducing new ideas of thinking on how our government works.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned more about coronations and how certain factors relate to each other.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and take good notes. Make sure you know how things correlate with each other.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It can be an informative course in which students will learn more about how the government of Texas and individual counties work. The issue is that Professor Tucker doesn't really cut any slack. Expect exam questions to be taken from both the textbook and lectures and for some content to contradict each other. You are expected to distinguish between the two. Professor Tucker also lectures in a somewhat monotonous voice so be sure to keep yourself awake.

    Course highlights:

    It was interesting learning about how Texas switched between being a blue state and red state throughout its history. We also had information about the federal government that was not mentioned in POLS 206.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook carefully but also make sure to take good notes in lectures. Some exam questions say according to the book while others say according to the professor. Be sure you get a bit of a feel of the information from each source. Study groups are recommended.

    Course highlights:

    This professor made this course as interesting as it could be.

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook because the tests come directly from it.
