A bit intimidating at first, but worth it. I had always wanted to learn mroe about Mexican Politics in a more systematic way. This course was great. Made me revise a lot of what I thought I knew about Mexico.
Grading was fair. Not too hard. Some of the movies were really great.
Pretty straightfoward class. A couple of quizzes (which are simple, if you do the readings), powerpoint lectures with relevant information on tests. One midterm and final, multiple choice and lowest quiz score is dropped. Overall, good class. Highly recommend.
Great professor, extremely concern with student learning. The only thing you have to do is do the readings by the assign date and you are set. Lecture basically breaks down the readings and the quizzes keep you on top of your game. The midterm and final are not overwhelming if you done the reading.
Very interesting course. I had wanted to learn more about Mexican Politics for a long time! Glad I could get into this course. His slides were good, even tho he didn't post them online. Not too hard exams, although the readings were challenging.
Well I have to say that he is dull using the banking method in such a small class! I wish there was more insight on the readings, but he never offered any! Overall yea got to agree that his quizzes are easy. If you keep up with the readings, understand the concepts and go to office hours will help a great deal on the exam. He is alright overall.
The course is excellent. The quizzes are real easy, but keep you sharp and up to date with the readings. Class does require to read regularly, but I think it's worth it. I had wanted to learn more about Mexican Politics for a long time, but never saw any PS courses on the topic. Some of the readings were pretty complicated, but he distilled them in lecture and made them easier to grasp. Some of my favorite stuff were the two movies we saw. Readings dealing with economics were kind of boring and complicated, but lectures were pretty clear. And he was super responsive to emails. All in all, a good course on a great topic that I really wanted to learn more about.
