PSY 4306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Mr. Gouti is a great teacher, he has a great memory, excellent communicator, and great human to boot. A++++ Can't say enough good things about him! I took Theories of Personality with him and do not regret it!

PSYC 2310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This class was a total joke. He lectured for the first few weeks of class, but it was 100% terrible student presentations after that. I studied so hard for the midterm, because he didn't give back grades on presentations until the end, only to find out the test was incredibly easy. Take for an easy A, not if you actually want to learn the material.

Professor Gouti is the best professor I have ever had. He is an excellent professor. He is very well-prepared for each lecture. His lectures are very interesting and informative. If you want to learn about Sociology, or if you need to take a course in Sociology, I highly recommend Professor Gouti.

SOC 1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

It starts well, but then becomes too repetitive and uninteresting. For those in humanities, run away! You will not have sufficient basis for the advanced classes that will have later. For the others, take it! The presence isn't mandatory, the tests are easy, and the essay is in a topic of your interest. Got an A - I didn't learn anything!

SOC3304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Haha this professor is a joke. Showed up for class about 50% of the time, even then he was always 15-30 minutes late. This class was super easy, but I didn't learn anything new.

Soc1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is easy. If you want an A take him. We had 3 tests including the final and a paper. I passed with an A and all I did was come to class and take notes. I never read the book once. Don't buy it and don't buy his research manual. You do not need them.

SOC1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Boring lecture, basically straight out of the book with a few addition's. Very slow returning emails. If you want to take this class, find another teacher. If you must take him, don't expect much.

Soc1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I love this teacher. He was super easy. As long as you attend class and take notes, you will pass. He tells you what will be on the tests and what to study. We only had 3 tests including the final and one paper due which was pretty easy. I wish he taught all of my classes!

SocSc2304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

EASY! REPITITION all the way. Tests are straight from your notes & his handout book. I have to disagree with others about not learning in his class. He is boring & class is quiet, however, we're not here to have a party. We're here to learn & pass & that's guaranteed with him.

SOC1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

All I can say is BLAH. If you want an easy grade and don't give a flip about soc, then take him. If you actually want to learn something, do yourself a favor and find a real teacher. He is boring, has no zero personality and is ALWAYS rudely late (like 20 minutes!).

SOC1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Gouti is an amazing teacher. And it is not an easy of an "A" as the other student describes. Many students had trouble in my class, simply because they weren't doing the required readings. He is very clear on what he wants you to know for the test. I would definately take this teacher again!
