PY101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

He was an overall chill prof. and his class is not hard to pass. As long as you come to class, pay attention, take notes, & read the textbook you should pass with no issues. His quizzes and tests are online and he does not assign homework/classwork. He does go a little fast sometimes during lecture but all his notes are online with study Qs

PY 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Such a chill guy. No attendance, online quizzes and tests, very understanding and lenient. Took Psych for distribution so I wasn't paying much in class, yet easily passed with an A. No regrets

PY102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great professor! If you actually pay attention in class you'll learn a lot and he makes the class interesting and fun. I took this course in the winter, very fast pace and don't recommend it to anyone who has a bad study habit. Take his class in the fall or spring. He offers a lot of extra credit for those who need it.

PY102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Really nice guy. Class can be challenging, but that's why the textbook is there to clarify the concepts he teaches. A very agreeable person and is enthusiastic about his lectures. Took it in the winter so it was very fast paced, quizzes everyday and a paper, but LOTS of extra credit available its almost hard to not pass. Great professor overall.

PSY 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Best teacher ever. Really understanding, knowledgeable, tests are easy. He really wants you to succeed. He is a really good professor, someone that you would like to have. I have learned a lot from him. He is kind of a quiet person but really funny. Take him if you want to enjoy Psychology.

PY 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class is so boring. He uses powerpoint slides which he never gives you enough time to copy. He is monotonous. Don't take his class if you really want to enjoy PY.

Professor Herst is awesome and hilarious! His class was easy as long as you use the online sample tests from the book you will pass his tests. He is super nice and helpful and yes I think he's attractive. Plus he told us he's not against marijuana legalization which is awesome!

PY 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I don't understand some of these comments from others. Yes, Prof. Herst uses PowerPoint, and does not give you a copy... but that's an unfair complaint against him since the notes are available via MyMC course page, which are word-for-word, just in Word format. If you need additional help you go to his office hours. He's a prof, not a babysitter.

PY 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I heard PY 102 should be one of the most interesting subjects. However, Prof Herst makes it one of the most boring classes. Anyone can tell that he is a knowledgeable prof; but if he doesn't interact wt the students in class, the class becomes so so so boring! Take him if you don't have any other options. The best prof in PY dep is Pr John Wright!
