I took him for 3 courses. He is a very good teacher but very demanding as well. He gives you the exam questions before hand. You can answer and show him what you wrote before the exam. But, he expects A LOOOOOT of details on the actual exam.

I had him for Intro to Politics, it's easy to tell he really cares about his class and making sure you learn and understand what he's saying, not just for school but for life. He tells a lot of personal stories and he's really friendly and approachable. Unfortunately he cancelled a lot of classes at the start of the semester so we hadn't covered some of the possible topics for our essay until after we'd handed them in. On tests - GIVE DETAILED ANSWERS. Really.

If you want to pass, your test answers MUST BE VERY DETAILED and I recommend you write down everything he says. Although strict, he knows his stuff and gives a lot of examples to help students understand better. He also likes to talk about his personal experiences (apparently, he once conversed with P.E. Trudeau on the street). He shows his students test questions beforehand (essay questions + term definitions). It's better to be on his good side. Overall a very good, wise teacher :)

Ganesh is an amazing teacher who know ALL about what he is teaching. I had him for Intro to Politics and I really liked him as a teacher. He gives a lot of notes during the calss and his exams are essay questions and you need to make sure you know what he wants to see on exam. He requires you to know only what he has taught you and not what you might be thinking about the question. Many students in my class got low grades because of this, and put as much details as possible! Recommend him!
