I must disagree with the review below. I thought the class and the professor were very straightforward. It's not intense statistics. After all, the class is called statistics for POLITICAL SCIENCE MAJORS, not statistics for math majors. There's definitely a learning curve for the statistical program R, but once you get the hang of it, it's really simple. The professor and TAs are always willing and able to help you with R. That being said, it would probably be helpful to make friends in the class to do your coding together.

The midterm and final were multiple choice. Jesse doesn't really try to trick you with the questions. Maybe one or two questions that you need to read carefully, but they're all very, very doable.

Overall, I'd recommend this class and professor. Not time consuming at all. One of the easiest classes I've taken at UCLA so far.

Professor Acevedo is by far one of the best poli sci professors I had at UCLA. He is very friendly, eager to teach, always prepared for lectures, always willing to answer any questions and is very helpful during office hours. He made lectures interesting by incorporating current events in Latin America, relevant videos, graphs and interesting/funny stories from his trips to Latin America. He assigned us many Economist articles so that most of the readings would not be dense.
He is also a fair professor and really wants students to do well in his class, so he provided a reading guide, which consisted of a list of questions for each reading/topic covered in the course. The reading guide was VERY helpful because he only tested us on material included in the reading guide and he made sure to answer the reading guide questions during lectures.
I highly recommend taking Poli Sci 124C with Professor Acevedo!!

Professor Acevedo is a very fair grader and is very knowledgeable on the topics that he teaches. He is very easy to understand and always connects topics back to his personal experiences which make lecture interesting. I would definitely recommend taking a class with him!
