Loved abnormal psychology! I'm not a psych major, but found his class to be very interesting. Great professor, uses lots of examples from his previous experience. If you take PSYC 455, I recommend taking it with Barry!

Dr. Ries is an entertaining and informative professor. He uses personal case studies and experiences to illustrate points made in class. His grading methods are very fair. He lets you take 4 tests & the final, and you drop the lowest one. However, he had us complete 5 article reviews that could only hurt your grade, not help. I loved his class.

He is a good professor I give him that. However he teaches psychology, not theoretical physics at Harvard. His ego is huge and he often shot out political jokes revealing his personal opinions; it was unprofessional distasteful.

The class was interesting and he makes it fun...though he is a little into himself. There are four tests and are off of his notes. Class isn't mandatory but you'll need the notes for the tests.

I read the first four chapters thinking that it would be a requirement for a good grade, but all you really need are his notes. He makes lectures fun. This class requires little studying so long as you are capable of paying attention in class - which isn't hard to do.

I loved this class and he kept it interesting. As long as you study the lecture notes, you will be fine on the tests. I never read the book, just looked over the study guide book and I did fine on the tests! I would highly recommend this class!

This class is a lot of fun to go to and informative, but his tests are hard and I do not know where he got some of his questions from, some were on things we never went over in class.

Dr. Reis is an entertaining professor, and his class is very interesting. I realize his class is a 400 level course, but I think he makes the tests a tiny bit harder than they need to be for the information that is covered. The part that scared me the most the first time I took his test was the essay question. Not many professors do that anymore
