    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    All of his lectures are direct questions on the test. He gives you the answers all you have to do is show up to class and pay attention! It is a quite easy class that tests your political skills.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the debates. Seeing different perspectives to the same topic not only increases our knowledge of the topic, but encourages us to defend our opinions in a respectful manor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down everything he says in class!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a tough course and some assignments are not clearly stated on what needs to be completed for them. However, he does offer a lot of extra credit opportunities so that can be helpful if you do poorly on quizzes. Write down due dates or else you will forget things. Lectures are posted as online videos. Quizzes are difficult if you don't read the text.

    Course highlights:

    I did like the simulation of passing a bill, however the assignments expected of each position were not entirely clear. I learned the process in which a bill can be made into a law through the simulation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do not like or have an interest in US government or political science in general then you may have a tough time in this class to start with. As long as the reading gets done and assignment dates are paid attention to then you will pass just fine. If you put the time in then your work will show for it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this class! One of the greatest things I have learned from this class is to take advantage of the vast amount of resources available at college, especially a community college like Saddleback. Professor Webber offered free 1-on-1 counseling, writing assistance, career questions, and more even though she was not even technically a counselor. She made sacrifices to accomodate students' every needs. This semester showed me how much taking advantage of these free resources can help me achieve my fullest potential.

    Course highlights:

    I learned critical thinking skills as we studied American government. Politics is highly controversial, naturally, so I certainly developed my ability to stay true to my own convictions while fairly considering the reasons for others'.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of resources. Work hard: you get out of classes what you put into them, even when you get a less-than-stellar teacher. When college hands you a stellar teacher like Professor Webber, jump at the opportunity because it does not come along every time. Be willing to participate. You will enjoy the class much more and you will learn much more.
