    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very challenging class. The professor is excellent! He knows exactly how to teach to get you to learn exactly what you need to learn. However, in order to get a good grade you have to study a lot. The studying is not hard just time consuming.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course I learned a lot, but the thing I learned most about was the federal and state governments. I thought I knew quite a bit about the government but it taught me so much more. For example, one thing it taught me was who has the power in different parts of government.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I wish I would have studied more than I did. I thought I had studied thoroughly but when I took the test I did not do as well as I had thought. Study groups are really helpful when studying for this class because you can get a lot of different input.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reccomend this class if you have a lot of free time. The class requires you to watch a lot of videos and read from multiple sources for homework so it is very time consuming. It is an easy class but there are not grades assignments, the only things that go on your grade are tests and quizzes. Luckily there is a super curve to balance everything out.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to apply politics and government to everyday life. I can now spit scenarios in life that we talked about in this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise getting into study groups and sharing notes. Often I would miss things because the professor moved through the lecture so quickly but I found that if I compared notes with other students that my notes would end up more complete.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because although the class is difficult, I have learned more from Professor Latimer than I have from any of my other professors.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is definitely all of the videos he uses in class because they really help me to remember little things that I wouldn't have otherwise.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class because that is where all of the test material will come from.
