"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass."

I've taken two other Psychology classes taught by different people but Dr. Doug has been the best Psychology teacher that I've had. His lectures go by really fast. He has a sense of humor. He sends out tweets on his Twitter account a couple days before a test and tells you what you should be studying, which is really helpful

"Hilarious" "Get ready to read"

Overall, a great professor. His lectures are easy to sit through because he likes to inject humor into the conversation; also, he's very clear when he talks.

"Participation matters" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Okay, this guy is great. His lectures keep you focused for the full 50 minutes and he has a great, if not a bit dry, sense of humor. Take advantage of the SI sessions for a week before the test, study a little, and read the assigned pages and you should do great. I loved taking a class from him and would do so again.

PSYC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

He required access to MyPsychLab, and we had to take online quizzes over each chapter. His lectures were very thorough and clear, but the class is large so arrive early if you want a good spot. You do need to read the book to get an A. It was actually a fairly interesting text that explained the material well.

Great professor. Very helpful if you go to his office hours. One thing that kind of annoyed me was that we'd have to do quizzes online for chapters we haven't started in class. Other than that, great class, great professor.

He definitely knows a lot about the subject and does a lot of example teaching in class. You pretty much have to read the book outside of class if you want an A, but he does a good job of going over each chapter.

Definitely knew his stuff for this 101 course and related material really well. He IS a challenging professor and really pushes you and his tests require you to really know the material to get an A.

Really great class, keeps everything fun and interesting. Teaches the class like it's a small class, not a lecture.

His lectures are interesting and light-hearted at times. With the quality outlines and lectures, you might not even need a book!
