Attendance isn't mandatory, make sure you meticulously review his study guides, those are basically his tests. Shame he's retiring after this year.

You definitely have to read the textbook because that is what his tests are all about. He will pull a few questions from his lectures too. Prof. Walcott is extremely knowledgeable and I liked his style of teaching

Walcott is an extremely generous professor. He gives out 4-5 extra credit assignments that can boost your grades. His humor is cute and worth a few chuckles. Class attendance is definitely not required because his tests are straight-forward from material in the textbook. I definitely recommend this class especially if you like politics!

Professor Walcott is the best professor I've ever had here at Tech. This semester he gave us 4 extra credit assignments to help boost peoples' grades. If you want an A in his class, you will get an A if you put in an average amount of work. His lectures are interesting and he constantly keeps the class laughing. Also, Walcott always lets out class

HOW IS THIS A 1000 LEVEL CLASS? I failed the first two exams even though I studied for days. I stopped going to class, taught myself, and got a B on the third exam. Class notes on Blackboard are really helpful. The prof is really nice, but his style of teaching just didn't work for me. He does a few extra credit papers though, which are great.

His lectures are clear and funny as well. His notes are extremely helpful as well, so study them well. It also helps if u read the text because some of his test questions also refer to it, but his tests are not hard. As long as u study the notes and read the text u should be fine. He also gives koofers on his website.

Fantastic teacher and class. Covers political science very broadly, and not very hard at all. Test are simple, just go to the lectures and you wont have to read.

even though the class is way too long, this professor keeps the attention of his class. you can tell he really loves what he is teaching and it just makes the rest of the class interested. i love that he makes gov't & politics fun and he can joke around with the class while teaching such a large group (600 kids)

i love his class, even tho there is like 500 kids inthere, i just love poitics. i do wish tho he would take a stance on some issues and play the devil's advocate to evoke some discussion and make the classthink. i have only had him for 2 classes.

Comment:
Walcott is probably the most interesting teacher at VT...he takes a relatively boring subject and turns it in to something worth listening to. I actually felt bad when I missed class (which was only once)...On another note...I didn't really find him intimidating at all...depends on your definition of intimidating though I guess

I'll second the 'intimidating as a freshman' but also interesting. I had him for classes in my minor as a freshman and a senior. Even better in the smaller senior class, great discussion groups.
