    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course to prospective students. The material in the course was not presented in a manner that helped me achieve a greater understanding of Texas government. The professor seemed unprepared before class, and tended to go off on tangents during lecture. Additionally, the course did not provide many opportunities to help the students that were struggling. There were no on-campus resources, and the professor did not provide any helpful websites on Blackboard or via e-mail. Thirdly, it was hard to create a relationship with the professor, so I did not feel confident asking for assistance.

    Course highlights:

    I achieved a slightly better understanding of Texas politics. Although the objectives of the course were not successfully achieved, the occasional guest speakers were interesting and allowed me to get to know some of my local representatives. The only highlight of the course was the reaction paper, in which a short essay was written about the topic discussed by a guest speaker of choice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a student that is looking for a thorough and clear understanding of Texas government, then I would consider another section of this course. However, regardless of which section of this course you take, you should read all of the necessary textbook chapters. The vocabulary terms presented in the textbook are a very integral part of the curriculum. Also, attend every lecture. Even if the lecture is not helpful to your learning, attendance is counted towards your course grade.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Very strait forward and helpful professor. She gave you all the information you need to pass, you just need to be able to remember it and you're set.

    Course highlights:

    Very in depth about the state level government and it was easy to understand. She also includes up to date assignments like a paper over current elections.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep a very clean and neat journal, a bunch of notes so you need to be able to read them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a mandatory course for all college freshman, but in the case where one would have the option, I would highly recommend it because the professors teaching methods, are in my eye superb.

    Course highlights:

    I could take a highlight from every lecture he has ever given me, because I found that I not only learned something new about politics in every class, but the way he taught fully engaged my interest, which will make me have that desire to dig deeper in this specific subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're a freshman taking this course with Professor Dillard, then I highly suggest listening very attentively in every lecture, taking cohesive notes, and showing up to class when you have it, because surprisingly people won't show up for the classes that they paid for.
