    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Aliano is a great teacher with lots of experience teaching about American government. He's very old school and wrote on the board any time he had information to give us, rather than using powerpoint presentations or other online mediums. If that bothers you, don't take the class, but I promise it's not more difficult. He draws lots of diagrams to properly explain concepts. He is interesting to listen to, definitely not a dry lecturer. If you are interested in politics and US government you'll be engaged the whole way through.

    Course highlights:

    His extensive experience teaching this topic resulted in him knowing lots of fun facts about politicians and different time periods he teaches about. He didn't stick to dry lecturing that related exactly to the book, but told us anecdotes and stories that helped frame the conversation.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes on what he lectures on in class. The topics he explains in class are what he expects you to know for the tests. I rarely read the chapters before class, just took in-depth notes on what he talked about, and then studied those when preparing for the tests. Doing that gave me three A's and one B, which were higher than the average grades by my classmates. So reading everything in the text isn't required, just pay attention specifically to the topics he lectures on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course as a starter course for someone beginning their way into a focus of politics or for a general knowledge course. You learn names, theories, and concepts that one should know prior to studying politics. Class is important because Professor Aliano ensures to review the more important parts of the readings and will go over things in class that is not in the books and will test you on them.

    Course highlights:

    The book assigned is very straight forward and despite the long readings, if you are focused in class it is easy to expect what is on the test. There are no real surprises and the professor is more than fair as he scales test grades depending on the classes' scores.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the class, go to it, and take a few hours in the library to do the reading and highlight main concepts and you should succeed.
