    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it as a starting point for studies of political science. It describes a lot of the entry level political science knowledge and explains terms of significance for comparing political and governmental structures. The writing in this course was simply and the instructions were clear. The key to the course were multiple choice tests where each question was worth one percent of the student's cumulative grade.

    Course highlights:

    The course was most useful for preparing me for future comparative politics courses since it explained different electoral systems, parliamentary systems, as well as presidential systems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should be sure to do the readings as the tests were based directly off of them. In addition students should pay close attention to the differences between systems as that will be important for later classes as they analyze how different regions of the world developed politically.
