    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She is very strict and has clear guidelines when it comes to her research essay and exams. She most likely won't tell you what will be in the exam exactly as it is a mix of her lecture *mainly* and also discussions from the textbook. She might throw in hard to find information in the exam as extra credit. Such as dates, people and sometimes figures. All in all if you look like someone that is trying she will most likely help. Also at the end of the quarter she is willing to write letter of recommendation which is a plus for someone who needs it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the american judicial system and also how presidential candidates get funded for doing campaigns. I did learn a lot about how the constitution became hold and also the way state and federal govt. system goes and also everything surrounding the government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are 3 exams mainly covering each section, but as each exam is taken the previous material you will be required to know for the final exam (3). Each exam is 100 points and the Research essay is 200 points. You should start by coming to class everyday as lectures are mainly used for the exams. Also, participate if she sees you engaging she may help you in the future *cough* (research essay which is so hard). Expect to ,memorize terms as that is a big factor in the exam. Also each week there will be one to two quizzes on the chapters so do good on that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jimenez is very lively. He brings spunk to a class I would have otherwise found boring. The essays are not to demanding, but they do force you to read your sources carefully and with a grain of salt.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight was when we impersonated congress and debated on whether passing the bill. He stressed how incredibly unlikely anything would pass, despite our best intentions. Also, Jimenez made sure to pick apart everything. Nothing was presented through a lens of patriotism for brainwashing. He told us what was happening and everything wrong with it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE TEXTBOOK! No one ever reads it, even though the multiple choice is always based off of the textbook. Just, read the textbook.
