    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's definitely not an easy class, but mostly because Prof Tetlow tends to trail off in her lectures, and the class is set to meet twice a week/lecture-discussion hybrid style. She does however give out outlines online prior to the class day so you can see what you're going to be hearing. It also gives a fundamental outline to what reading you should focus in your textbook.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the fact that there were no e-reserves or outside article readings like the other intro poli sci classes. It cut off alot of stress and time, but she does however require you to get two textbooks. One book is basically all old documents and constitutions, and since it's a US govt class, you'll need to know them and their primary functions. She is extremely engaging and gives ample opporutnity for everyone to discuss their feelings and thoughts, which is nice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you regularly go to class. She takes attendance, and if you go to class and actually listen, you won't really need the readings. I did really well in the class and never really even touched the textbook aside from skimming them in class to complete discussion question short answers with my group of like 4 other people. She reviews the materials well before the exam, so just make sure to always go to class!!
