PSYC 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Did not enjoy this class at all and I think it was only because of this prof. He giggles a lot and gets off topic all the time, and makes the material a lot more confusing than it should be. The final exam was an open book exam but don't be fooled, it was IMPOSSIBLE and took me so long to write. Avoid him if you can!

Great Prof! Having weekly quizzes was sooo much better than other psyc profs who give you two midterms. Also final exam was open book, laptop and whatever notes or anything you wanted to bring with you. Highly recommend if you can get past the cheesy jokes.

Amazing Professor, broke everything down for you and because stats is hard to a lot of people I was very impressed with how he taught this course. Hoping for my next stats class to be with him!!

Beware of an excruciating annoying laugh every 30 seconds from this prof. It is actually really hard to focus because literally at the end of every sentence he would blurt out that awkward chuckle. He "jokingly" impersonates students with serious questions in class. Overall an ignorant professor who gets paid far too much for what he does.

I actually really liked him to be honest! Material was dry, that's just stats. He goes off topic sometimes but not for long and I never found it annoying or anything! Quizzes had tricky questions, but exam wasn't hard.

PSYC 2002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Jolly little fellow that sees fit to burst into spontaneous laughter midway through explanation of a concept that is important to cohesion and understanding of the course material. Extremely disdainful towards students that require help beyond the shoe gazing lecturing approach. Appeared to be completely disinterested in teaching in general. Beware

PSYC 2002 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This professor is possibly one of the worst profs I've had so far in university. He starts off very easy, which was very misleading, because as the course went on, he made everything extremely overcomplicated and confusing. He is terrible at explaining things and showing things in his sample assignments. Totally don't recommend.

Professor Logan is really cute and funny. He makes stats enjoyable by making jokes and telling funny stories. He explains things well and tries to go slowly so everyone can understand. YOU HAVE TO READ THE TEXTBOOK THOUGH. I liked him as a professor and would recommend him. :)

Nice person, but not so good of a prof. Weekly quizzes are a pain to do but it does force you to read the textbook. Favourite thing is that he laughs spontaneously in class

Logan is adorable. Very entertaining to watch! Weekly quizzes of 2 hours for 15 questions! Open your textbook, have your notes ready and you'll get above a 75%. Make sure you study the weekly material though. Final was HARD. 100 mult. choice (open book) Make good notes!!! Do SONA expirements too! FREE 4% and got me from an 81 to an 85% final grade.

Logan was a pretty good professor. He tries to make jokes and be "hip" or relate to the students. He sometimes gets off topic. Notes are pretty long and not always clear. Attendance is very recommended. Final was 100 MC questions and open book but NOT EASY. He marks fairly though.

This prof tries to be funny but he is not funny at all. I did not attend class (only went to 4 classes) because he is so hard to understand and his notes are not the best. I used the textbook to learn everything (it is a must buy!). Allowed cheat sheets for exam, exam is kind of difficult, assignments are very fair and not too hard just do the work

Logan made everything clear and easy, carefully explaining (and re-explaining...) everything from basic excel usage, to complicated statistical analysis. no midterms, 3 excel assignments, weekly webCT quizzes and a final exam. open book everything. I'm not a mathematical person at all, but I got an A+ in this course.

Very cute :), adore the accent. Research methods were easily broken down with him. Explained things well generally and if you study you can do well.

Awesome prof with an excellent understanding of cognitive psychology. Yes, it's a stats course, but he uses his knowledge of cog psych to designed it so that we actually learned something, as opposed to the traditional course format of 2 mid-terms, final exam, possible assignment, etc. Work your schedule around this man and you won't regret it.

Does a good job on a dry subject. He's very well organized and prepared. I know his quirky style grates some people, but I found him to be amusing. Comes across a genuine good guy.
