    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course simply because Professor Aliano is a great lecturer and really makes sure you understand the information he is going over. Aliano does just lecture, but it is not boring and he makes sure to keep his students engaged. The topic is difficult, there is a lot of reading, but Aliano breaks everything down step by step, by definition and significance, making sure you are not just memorizing but learning.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was that there weren't any assignments other than the exams. That was great because the course was very information heavy it was nice to have breaks in between exams to read and comprehend the chapters. It was historical and expressed how the society of years ago shaped how our government is today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only piece of advice I have that could make a difference in someones grade, beside going to class, is just do the readings. It's long and tedious, but that is the only way you will survive Aliano and his lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend because Aliano has a good teaching style, it's just lectures but the way he explains his thoughts and the interpretations of the books makes the topic so much more clear than some bullet points.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the class is that he scaled every exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and you should be okay.

    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.
