"Lectures are long"

She teaches at an agonizingly slow pace. Other than that, the class is an easy A. She also assigns a fun project due near the end of the semester, which I enjoyed.

"Tests are tough" "Tests? Not many"

Taking her for Intro to Psych will put you to sleep. She spends 40 minutes on one slide and does not give good notes at all. The book is necessary because she makes you do online labs. She drags out her lectures as long as possible which is irritating. For those of you who want to get in, get your work done, and get out, this class is not for you.

"Inspirational" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Don't understand how anyone could rate her poorly. The class is ridiculously easy if you out in just a little bit. You MUST go to lectures and fill in the lecture guide. Make flashcards from the review sheet using the study guide, and that's all you have to do for the test. There are no surprises. Do all extra credits, and complete research credits

"Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

She nice and sweet. However, she's a terribly lecturer. Her power point slides aren't clearly labelled and she often comes up with her own headers that really only make sense to her. She often rambles aimlessly about one topic, and then barely covers the next. She gets distracted and off topic easily. Short answer: go to her TA's office hours.

"Amazing lectures" "Inspirational" "Skip class? You won't pass."

In my opinion, Lynda Mae is certainly one of the BEST professors in ASU. Her lectures are fantastic, she lectures with heart and passion. Aims to actually educate her students and supply them with knowledge that they could benefit from. I actually WANTED to go to class. Which isn't the case with many of the other classes I've taken here. A++ Prof.

"Lectures are long" "Tests are tough" "Get ready to read"

Stopped going to class halfway through the semester. She just restates everything in the textbook (she helped write it). Does not need to be a 3 hour class. On tests, she does throw in random facts about the theorists and sometimes words questions confusingly.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read" "Lectures are long"

Dr. Mae is one of my favorite psych professors. This was the second course I took with her, and I still really like her. Her tests are based mostly off the book and notes and she gives you a study guide so you know what to look for. Though attendance is not checked, it is impossible to pass the class without going to pretty much every lecture.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This should be an easy class, but she makes it way harder than it should be by refusing to put her lecture slides online. So if you miss a day for any reason, your midterm grade's probably shot. If you do show up, you have to scramble to take notes all class which divides your attention. All you get is a (worthless) study guide. Just don't take it.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Lectures are long"

There are 4 exams (50 points each), and 1 project (10 points). You get a study guide for the exams, but about 10 questions on the test are from the book. Multiple choice. Attendance is only required on the first day, however I would absolutely recommend attending every class. Just pull up the study guide in class and take notes directly from that.

Rarely attended class. Just do the research credits and the super easy labs. I got two D's on the exams and still ended with C without knowing a lot of information. B is not hard at all and an A is possible.

PSY 394 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The exams are online but are very difficult because it is based on menial facts about authors rather than concepts. Dr. Mae is nice and with a little prompting she is helpful but there is no opportunity to discuss things in class because she only makes time for her own lecture content. There are better psych electives available, take those.

Rarely went to class and squeaked by with a B (she only gives whole letter grades). If you take good notes, and make flash cards you'll do just fine. Go to class and pay attention and its an easy A.

Absolutely loved this class, found it to be very interesting. Dr. Mae made this class very easy to understand. Her tests are strictly from the study guide, so make sure you take great notes and complete the study guide. This class is a easy A, as long as you apply yourself.

Mae REALLY loves Psychology, as you can tell through her lectures. As long as you show up to class, take notes on the slides, and study them, you can easily get an A in the class.

take her class. its annoying but easy. you need 6 research credits so that gets in the way of studying for other classes but once you do it the class is simple. she says to read book but as long as you show up to class and copy down the slides you don't need to. the exams are easy four 50 question multiple choice. as long as you study youll pass

Overall good teacher. She kinda treats you like a 7 year old but she's honestly really nice & helpful. Her tests are super straightforward so if you do the study guides and go to class you'll be fine! At first the course is boring but it gets interesting after the first couple of chapters. Easy A if you do the work required.

Good info, interesting! Teacher was a little slow on delivery of information, class seemed longer than actually was. Class was not too difficult, and enjoyable. 1 assignment, 4 tests. Dr. Mae was nice 1-on-1 but made womanly-"assertive" comments in class. Offensive. Tests were easy if completed study guide, & study! Would take her class again tho

She absolutely loves psychology and it's easy to tell. However, the class does get a little tough at times. But if you attend lectures and study the notes that she gives you, you should be just fine.
