PSYC 150 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

ALL LECTURE, BUT TESTS ARE ABOUT BOTH LECTURE AND BOOK MATERIAL. SHOW UP TO CLASS AND YOU SHOULD DO WELL. OFFERS EXTRA CREDIT IF YOU PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF HIS STUDIES AND LETS YOU TAKE OPTIONAL FINAL TO REPLACE YOUR 2 LOWEST TEST SCORES. GRADE IS BASED ON 6 TESTS AND A BRIEF JOURNAL ASSIGNMENT. HE'S MORE THAN WILLING TO HELP IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE

PSYC 210 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B
"Skip class? You won't pass."

He cares a lot about his students and is pretty helpful. Tests are kind of hard. I had him for Stats so the actual work sucked but he made lecture somewhat interesting.

Dr. Redker does what he can to help students without giving them grades when they don't work. Attendance to class will help a lot. Reading the book is a good idea, but not completely mandatory on every subject covered. I very much liked his class.

Wow. This guy is a piece of work. Really pompous and pretentious. Talks way over your head. Attendance isn't mandatory under his guidelines, but if you miss one or two days in a week, you're screwed on his impossible quizzes. Hope you like reading!!

This course was not an easy one but I found his lectures to be very interesting. The comment below is not true about your grade only based on tests. There is also a journal assignment that is turned in at the end of the semester.

PSYCH 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed this class. I could tell how passionate he was with his work and that made me want to learn more. I was definitely expecting this class to be more difficult than it actually is. The quizzes are twenty questions and multiple choice. If you study the material, than you will do great. I would definitely take another of his classes.

I found this class extremely difficult. I studied for the quizzes and still did not do well. I also attended the group study sessions. The quizzes were extremely difficult.

Great Professor, quizzes can be difficult if you don't go to class and read the textbook. But they're 20 questions, multipule choice. His lectures are interesting. And he's always willing to help if you're motivated to get help.

PSYC325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is passionate about social psych. Dr. Redker is great, though. He answers any questions, either in or out of class. It is hard, but just read and ask questions and DO THE STUDY QUIZZES. They really help a lot. Overall, I would definitely recommend him.

PSYCH280 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is really hard. You have to have a great understanding of research methods in order to pass. Read the book and ask for help if you need it because he does not like to repeat himself.

Overall i would say that he is a good teacher. However you really have to pay attention and read the book. He does not like to go over material so read ahead of time and also ask for help.

A really great professor. He really makes the material understandable. It's a tough class, but he teaches it well. He's very helpful and will break things down until every single person understands it. Don't be afraid to ask questions; he enjoys that as he's very passionate. He knows what he's talking about & really does help makes things clear.

PSYCH150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

In my six semesters at Ferris I have never disliked a teacher. However, as a diligent text book reader and note taker Redker sincerely offended me in his class. He is rude, and sometimes insulting to students. And god forbid you have an old edition of the textbook.

I believe that Doctor Redker is the absolute best teacher ferris' psychology program has to offer as far as teaching is concerned. His grading scale could be a problem for some, but it is a hard class and you need to work for your grade. Great professor, but not an easy class.

Dr. Redker is one of the best teachers in the world. His class is all about studying and memorization. He goes over everything that will be on the test and if not, the prior stuff will help lead you to the right answer. Class is somewhat dry and he admits that too, but he examples, easy to follow instructions, will get you a good grade. TAKE HIM!

PSYH325 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Taking notes is the most important part of class. He's kind of a spazz about stuff in the book, but usually only uses one of two questions from the book on the tests. Tests are 50 multiple choice and are easy if you read over notes but some questions are worded weird. Overall a good teacher and easy to understand
