Very good professor and an easy class, all you have to do is show up and you'll be good. If you don't show up you'll be in a world of hurt

PSY 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Dr. Nakai was a wonderful professor! The material is very easy if you read the book and study. I used flashcards and the online textbook tool. She kept the material interesting and made jokes often. Her Japanese accent only Interfered a few times. OverallI, I recommend Dr. Nakai in this course!

PSY 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Dr. Nakai made this course a lot harder than it should have been. You have pop quizzes every week and a unit test during dead week (which is just ridiculous). This class was exhausting because of how often you are tested. Any other PSY professor is easier!

She makes this class a lot harder than it needs to be!! I suggest taking Kelly Gorbett for introduction to psychology instead of Yoshie. The tests are a lot harder than they should be and nothing that's on the study guide is on the test.

Dr. Nakai was one of my favorite professors to take this semester. She is very helpful and helps to integrate the topic of groups and teams very well. We have a Website due for our final, and a few papers but no exams or tests. Attendance isn't mandatory but we do many class/groups assignments. Take her she is wonderful!!!

She is a great professor! Her exams come right off her power points and she even gives you a study guide for important things to focus on. She gives out a ton of easy extra credit throughout the course and there is only one short paper which takes about 20 minutes to write. It's a super easy A as long as you go to class and do your work.

Overall, a great teacher, especially for her first year at EKU. She provides study guides, so just make sure you know everything if you want a good grade. Uses powerpoints, which can get a little boring. Took attendence everyday, which it is very important for notes. Only required us to write one 2-3 page paper. Provides a lot of extra credit.
