Comment:
Three tests and a paper determine your grade. Tests are somewhat hard but if you study the night prior and really take his study guides seriously, you will do fine. Very laid back professor and always willing to help. Trivia questions are part of grades and you will only get them if you attend class.

Comment:
A brilliant proffessor, makes the topic interesting through class discussions. Although powerpoints would help in preparation for exams. His trivia questions are not hard if you pay attention in class. He is a very nice and understaning professor. The study guides he provides for exams are very helpful so long as you study well! Take him.

Comment:
The class was alright. He's a passionate professor for L.A. politics and works in the L.A. City Hall. There is a 12 page paper, 3 exams, and a field trip to L.A. City Hall. Attendance not mandatory but recommended. His exams are somewhat difficult I also recommend reading or at least skimming the books he assigned.

Very good teacher, knows what he is talking about but can be a bit one-sided at times. I really enjoyed the class but the tests were very challenging for me (also very long!) with tricky trivia questions which should be considered extra credit. Overall, interesting class but must attend class and do some reading to get an A

Professor Raphe Sonenshein is the man who sparked my interest in Politics. His experience in California and National politics is extensive. He was at the '68 Democratic convention. He worked with Tom Bradley and Maxine Waters. His understanding of the inner workings of the political game and his annecdotes made his class a must attend affair.

Really cool and funny prof, he knows his material well along with whats going on today. Lectures are clear and the stories he tells really help make the class seem a lot more interesting then it is. What I didn't like was how much emphasis was on the study sessions which took time outside of the class, well I never went to any and still did great.

AWESOME professor, very informative, hilarious (stand up comedian funny), and keeps it fun. If you listen in class, you will be interested and learn at the same time. Be well prepared for exams, as they make up 80% of your grade. Final noncomprehensive. Had an 84%, curved grades and I got an A. Book is fairly easy to read, must be done to pass.

Hilarious Professor, sitting in class and listening to his lectures was a blast. Tests are a bit on the difficult side. 4 Short Answers, 40 Multiple Choice, 4 exams total. Read the book, attend class [class material is on exams], and go to a few study sessions and you'll get a B or higher.

This professor is not easy. You must read the book, and take good notes. Study your butt off and go to the study session their helpful. But make sure you read the book before the week starts so you can understand what the professor is taking about. He is so funny, and he has a heart he cares about his students and he curves the first test because i

Great lecturer/speaker! He makes it interesting. The hardest thing to do in his class are his tests. Overall, he's really funny.

I took his class in the Spring of 1990. I hated Political Science before his class, and while it's still not my favorite subject, the professor made it entertaining, exciting, and very memorable. I highly reccommend him as a teacher.
