One of the best professors you'll ever have. She's an expert in her field and lectures are fascinating and very clear. Attendance is mandatory but she makes expectations very clear on day one. Exams are hard but fair. Easy to get an A if you attend class, participate and study for exams using her notes.

I am a graduating senior and she is one of the worst teachers I've had at Penn State. Very unclear as to how attendance will be graded (told us the day of the final how much each class was worth)

She expects you to come to class and engage in the material. If you read prior to class, her notes are very straight forward. You get a point a day just for showing up. Make sure you answer some of her questions and know every minor detail about the notes. I got an A but it definitely takes work. Overall great professor and enjoyable class.

She's an interesting character. She definitely has very high expectations that you attend class and give her your full attention, but if you do so shes warms up and becomes more receptive. Haven't actually taken the final yet, but from what we have been told it will not be cumulative.

Really interesting material and very cool professor. Lectures are very clear. Tests are straightforward if you study. You must attend class. Her tests are from her lectures. Weekly movies. Fair grader. You have to work hard but the class is great.

she uploads powerpoints with missing words so you ahve to go to class or get the notes. There are videos on fridays so you have to go to those classes to write an easy analysis but its so annoying because they are due on monday. the final was 1/3 new stuff and 2/3 everything, but not as hard as everyone is saying. on average the tests are tricky

Love this prof! She is so helpful and teaches a great course. Abnormal psych is a great course to take it's so interesting. The notes are very thorough and her lectures aren't boring at all. Tests are pretty easy if you study and do her study guides.

Dr Dawood is one of the best professors at PSU! She is so helpful and encourages her students to think. Her study guides are very detailed right down to the pg.in the book you should be reading. She makes her lectures interesting and fun. Her tests are straight forward not trying to trick you. Outside of class its like talking to a friend TAKE HER!
