Not one single word said in class is on the tests. He makes students calculate their own test grade. The WORST prof. I have ever had. I am not sure he knows what subject he is teaching. Do not take this prof. if you want a good grade and you want to learn something about state and local gov.

Horrible professor. First grade in the class is given in early November. Took the test right after return from Fall break. Talks in class about absolutely nothing relevant to state and local government. Aside from "pig farms." Do not take if you want to learn how state and local …more government work less

He is a complete jackass. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS. There is no attendance policy but there is no point in going. The people who actually do who up either eat or SLEEP the whole time. It is all about how he was Town Manager of Boone, and the fire cheif and the 30 million other jobs he has had.

Do NOT take Dr. Hoffman. His class covers such illustrious topics as pig farms and earthen dams. If you want to learn absolutely nothing about State and Local Government, please feel free to take him. If learning is your thing, run far far away.

Easiness (3) - minimal work; textbook (aka - our teacher) had too many terms to remember; Helpfulness (1) - showed little interest in teaching material; study guides did not pertain to tests; Clarity (1) - tests come from remote areas of book; lectures (his lifestory) did not do any good

Going to class is pointless, but if I were you I would. If he likes you he grades you easier. Tests are off the wall, but don't stress - like I said if he likes you, then your grade gets a boost. He's kind of looney, but a nice guy. I wouldn't STRONGLY reccomend him, but you could do a lot worse.
