If you don't like doing essays do not take this class, he's a very tough grader according to himself, and he asks extremely long study questions on his exams

He's a tough marker, so study hard for the tests. But his lectures were always entertaining and he reviews most everything in class. Start your essay early

He is very energetic and loves politics. If you onlytake the notes he writes on the board, it won't be enough to pass his exams. But if write down most of what he says and you are able to explain it clearly in your essays, you will pass. But make sure you understand what he is teaching, if you don't, ask him for further explainations and he will answer you questions. If you take his class seriously you will do just fine. But be ready to work hard.
