Tufts University: Jeffrey Berry - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
This class is a great choice for american politics junkies. That's almost a direct quote of Professor Berry and it is a good reflection of what the course is like. The course was really interesting although Berry is a self-admitting terrible lecturer. I still haven't really decided whether going to class was worthwhile. Participation is 10% of the grade, but going to class probably wouldn't have made much of a difference on the final (the only test). I recommend this course for poli sci majors interested in american politics. Berry is a guy you need to get to know...

The grading in the class is completely whack. completely. There is a paper that is 50% of your grade and it has nothing to do with the class except that it must be about public policy. There is a final that is 40% of your grade and consists of all the material from the semester. I felt pretty screwed at the end of the semester because I worked hard in the class and did not feel rewarded by the final. The final consisted of two broad essay questions that I answered well and aced, but my friend who I studied with (who rarely went to class and did very little of the reading) also aced it quite easily. Work hard on the paper, because it is basically your final grade.
