Dr. Konar is by far my FAVORITE teacher I had at ISU! He is a very fair/easy grader & although he does not give a study guide for tests he makes it very clear what you need to pay attention to & presents the material in an interesting way w/ examples & videos pulse he GIVES A TON OF EXTRA CREDIT especially in 460! I took 335 because I loved his 460

very interesting course. however, when i took it, he read right off his lecture slides except for maybe 2 or 3 classes...so it was hard to be attentive. (it was someone monotone since he was reading-- that voice/rhythmic tone you get into when you read out loud.)

One of my favorite professors at Iowa State! If you are going into the field of Counseling or Clinical Psych, you will love this course. He is so knowledgeable and wise. Attendance is not mandatory, but he does have surprise quizzes. My favorite part of lecture was when he told about previous clients of his own.

It is important to go to class because he has 5 surprise quizzes throughout the semester. The quizzes can be hard. Very important to study for his exams.

Dr. Konar has the most monotone voice at Iowa State, so if you need to be entertained during lecture, this is not your guy. The textbook will be your best instructor as Konar takes his powerpoints directly from the book. If you read, you'll do great, if you don't then best of luck.

Would not reccommend taking this class if you are not a psych major and are not interested in the material. Very tough class, Professor is good lecturer but rude outside of class if you seek help

For being a licensed psychologist in his off time, he isn't very tactful. I met with him during his office hours once to ask about graduate school in clinical psychology. He made a really offensive comment about where I went to school, and then basically told me he was surprised I'm able to function in college. I went to graduate school anyway.

Attending class is not necessary but he does give quizzes which he doesn't always announce or hint at beforehand. Having the book and skimming the chapters before a quiz will get you a few more points unless you are good at guessing. He reads from the slides and shows videos, so you can easily fall asleep in lecture.

Goes through slides very quickly, print them out beforehand, or you'll probably get behind. Dr. Konar is very knowledgeable, but can ramble from time to time. Not much homework outside of textbook reading and one paper.

He makes it interesting to learn. Class attendance isn't mandatory, but it helps with the tests. Grade is based upon A) 5 random in-class tests over the day's assigned reading B) A research paper (5-6 pages) C) Three exams and a final. You can get a decent grade if you go to class and read the book.
