Student reviews of Gary Freeman

Review from a student who took GOV 365N
Dr. Freeman was a good professor with extremely fair grading policies. His lectures were a little slow at times, but he often opened the class up for discussion which made the time fly by. He gave three fairly straightforward exams(can be totally multiple choice) with all topics coming straight off a review sheet and an eight page research paper. If you attend lecture, study with the review sheet, and try on the research paper there is no reason you can't do well.
Review from a student who took Gov 312L
Gary Freeman is a good professor, he cares about you doing well in his class. I learned a lot in his class and it interesting and I am not that interested in government. His lectures are straight forward and easy to follow. It is definately to your advantage to go to class and at least listen because he tells you the important information you need to know from the reading. It helps if you do the reading too, which by the way is not very much at all. His tests are very straight forward, if you know the information you will do very well.
Review from a student who took GOV 365N
I took Freeman for immigration and again for welfare state and I think his class on immigration was awesome and welfare state was just okay. I just wasn't interested in the political economy that dominated the welfare state class. Dr. Freeman is an expert in immigration and you will learn a lot from the class and the readings are very straightforward and easy to comprehend. Freeman's tests are all multiple choice if you want and one research paper. You will not find a fairer grader in Upper Division Government than Dr. Freeman.
Review from a student who took GOV 365N
Dr. Freeman is one of the nicest and fair professors I've had for class in 4 years. His is very interested in his students' progress and makes his exams very straightforward and the questions come almost directly from his review sheets, which he distributes at least a week before each exam. I formed a study group with some people from class and we divided up the questions on the review sheets to minimize study time. We then exchanged the answers a couple of days before the exams. We all got A's. The course break down: 3 exams for 25% each, a 10-page research paper for 20%, and lecture attendance 5%. The only bad thing was the attendance; he would deduct 1 point off your final grade for every day you missed unexcused for up to the full 5 points.
Review from a student who took Gov 312L
I will preface this with the fact that Freeman is a real nice guy. He does care about the progess of his students and trys to foster open communiciation. However, this may have been the most boring class I have taken in the last 4 years at the University. His lectures are long-winded with absolutely no opportunity for classroom discussion. He essentially reads off of the overhead; hardly teaching if you ask me. Tests are very straight forward. If you ask me, it was not all that necessary to go to class if you keep up with the reading supplements and lecture outlines he posts online. Overall, extremely boring, but a good guy.
