Psych 4350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Matherne is a very good teacher. I've taken three classes with him, and I've enjoyed everyone. He is knowledgable about what he teaches, and he tries to make class interesting. His tests can be a little tricky so make sure you read the book. He also gives bonus points to anyone who has only missed 3 classes or less so going to class helps alot.

Great professor! Had him 4 times. Gonna take him a 5th. Intelligent and funny guy. Go to class so you can get the bonus at the end of the semester. Try not to be late bc Matherne doesn't like tardiness! Ask questions, he is always helpful. He will probably like you more if you are knowledgable with old music references. Go team Matherne!

PSYC1310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The material he teaches isn't easy, but he does his best to make it understandable. Gives points for attendance. I've only used the book once, and that was because I was confused about something. The final isn't cumulative, and is only worth half as many points as a regular test! Take statistics with this man!

Looking for an easy A? Take this guy. Lectures directly and exclusively from powerpoint presentations, which is always boring to me but...nice guy. Only reason I got through without falling asleep was his phenomenal backside. Definitely an A- on the hottness scale, but his butt was a solid A+.

Very easy class. Don't buy the book. The notes you take in class are what is on the test. He's very funny and enthusiastic. It's not hard to pass with an A.

His tests and quizzes were very straight forward. He give you a study guide, if you take notes and read the book, you will do fine. He was very helpful. This class require alot of work because you are writing big research paper and then do the experiment at the end of the semester. However, he broke it into section so you won't be overwhelm.

Take him, take him, take him...couldn't have asked for better teacher in 2007. He helped me, after a huge accident in 2007, tremendously! Having been in college for 4 years already, he seemed to be one of the most genuine professors of my college experience. Take him, you won't regret the decision, that's a promise...

This class was the bomb.com - Pick ANYTHING to research- He will help you out - The research project paper was spread out over the entire semester (very helpful) Follows the book - Just STUDY - He is fair and very easy to get along with. Notes are easy as he is a PowerPoint Junky!! (Do we need an intervention here?)HIGHLY RECOMMEND AS A PROFESSOR!!

What can one say about Matherne...Straight-forward instructor, tries to keep up with the times but he still uses "beeper" on his syllabus-LOL Can relate his lectures to present time- Even when dealing with the OH SO BORING HISTORY of Psych. I would HIGHLY reccommend Psych Majors to take AS MANY classes as you can with him! Hes the male Gilda Reed!

Dr. Matherne made my 9:10am-10:15am M-F summer class worth rolling out of bed for. He's really entertaining, I enjoy history anyway but I'll admit..it can be boring if taught by a boring professor. Matherne is ANYTHING but boring. I want to take more of his classes but *sigh* I'm graduating soon!
