Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This professor does an excellent job in connecting what is learned in class to the real world. Considering it's a political science course, this aspect is very important. Politics is a very heavy subject with abstract topics, however there was never a point in the semester where I felt overwhelmed with the content we were learning. The professor often simplified the topics to help students understand at a fair level. Aside from the book work, we often discussed past and present elections to apply the principles to real world politics.
I thoroughly enjoyed that we were constantly informed about what was going on with the current election. Our class had deep discussions about candidates and what they want to implement, while remaining party neutral and open to hearing opposing views.

Advice for students:
Pay attention in class! The professor does a great job of explaining the content and providing resources, so if you're able to take great lecture notes and participate in class discussions, you'll definitely have less reading to do. Although, yes there still is reading in this class! For any topics you did not understand in class, always refer to the textbook or find an educational resource online. The better your understanding on the basics. the easier the class will be.
