"Hilarious" "Amazing lectures" "Would take again"

his quizzes are not the usual! He is an extremely hilarious professor, you will never be bored in his class i promise. no textbook needed, just paper for notes and Scranton for tests. however, his tests are based on life events, not definitions of of textbooks. make sure to take good notes, COPY EVERY WORD HE SAYS for how he says it.

"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This guy comes up with hilarious stories about his life, good examples to understand the material, and no homework or papers yet his tests (multiple choice) are ridiculously hard as hell. The way he words his exams are so confusing that you might end up choosing the wrong answer even though you thought it was right. Avoid this teacher at all costs.

"Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Would take again"

hes a cool guy , its just hes very moody and very strict , i love his teaching methods , making and giving examples for everything , i respect him alot for he is a good teacher , just his exams were very misleading. .. his wording was off on alot of things , he would expect us to understand his examples without clarity

psych 5 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

this teachers class can be fun, but when it comes to his tests they are very confusing. he sets his own examples he made up which can lead to different responses. basically, his tests werent clear, for he used his own words on the questions. if you want a fun class take him, but if you want to pass your tests dont take him.

PSYCH 8 2784 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is judgemental and tries to instil beliefs and stereotypes on everyone. His tests are extremely, EXTREMELY,confusing. There is a difference between challenging and just confusing. I even offered to write essays so that he would know that I actually do understand the subject. But he denied me saying that it would take time to read it...

Such a great teacher! He is a very funny guy. Very laid back and is extremely clear! He uses examples for each term he covers so you really understand it. He also uses Youtube explain things further which just makes the class that much more fun. Tests are a breeze! No Textbook! Take him!

He is such a great teacher. He uses helpful examples that really paint a picture for the definitions.. but make sure to study for the tests. Class seems easy until the test comes around.. the tests can be difficult. pay attention to detail in your notes before you go in for the test.

Psych5 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I loved this class. No textbook required and all exams are based off his lecture notes. His lectures are extremely entertaining & he almost always let us leave early. Yes, the wording on his exams can be extremely tricky, however I still earned an A because I studied (only a little). If you are interested in psychology, take his class!

Psy-5 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The lecture is fun and never boring! no need to buy textbook, the class goes by taking notes of his own definitions down. His tests are almost all scenarios with multiple choices. He substitutes definitions to different words, but if you don't know those words, ask him. He will answer them. Overall, I loved his class.

At first, this teacher seems extremely laid back. The class seems like a breeze. But when the time comes for a test.. You better of had studied!!! His tests are really difficult.. This teacher doesn't require a book and doesn't assign homework. He assigns classwork whenever he feels like it. If you really want to LEARN something... Don't take him.

Funny teacher, its one of the classes this semester that i enjoyed going to because I learned a lot. He gives examples of everything that he is teaching and will give more if you dont understand it. The tests are a little hard even though they are multiple choice. You have to really understand the concepts he teaches for the tests. Take him!(:

He makes class awesome, I loved it. He demonstrates GREAT examples that record with ease into your mind. Yes, his test are indeed a little tricky. Just make sure that when you study, that you know clearly what everything means so that you won't confuse yourself with his wording. This class is a must take, I enjoyed it, and NO need for buying books

His test are TRICKY, you need to pay attention to each word he mention in his ALL multiple choice tests. Will give an extra credit assignment and curves the exams. Not an easy A, you need to memorize and most importantly know and understand the material to get an A.

He is a very entertaining professor. Does not use textbook, lectures based on projection, very knowledgeable on the subject, and is very clear. It's just that his tests aren't so easy. At least there's no homework, though!

I took his class for Summer semester which was really hard for all the information the class has to give but Professor Mohammad made everything really easy by using his own experiences and examples to help is understand and made the class really enjoyable! Definitely one of the best professors I've ever taken!

Professor Mohammed is a great teacher. I can not think of another class where I learned so much and was always eager to go into class. His lectures are very clear and his stories help you better understand the material and are also hilarious. An amazing professor sign up for his class asap!

As a person,he comes off as anti-woman and his real life comparisons prove that he is super judgmental. As a teacher, it's an easy class but the tests are not so easy. Attendance is mandatory, no textbook, note-taking is easy, it's all on the projector. I would recommend if you're looking for an A, otherwise, you don't really learn anything.

PSYCH5 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Pros: No textbook required (saves money!), clear notes, interesting lectures with funny examples from his life, multiple choice exams, no homework. Cons: Tests are tricky in wording, so study your notes, and he gets mad if you're tardy so always come on time lest you get kicked out for the day. I would recommend this class. He's a great professor.
