The best class! I went into this class thinking it was going to be all basic terms and knowledge, but it turns out Dr. Barahal is a legeond in his own right! The man has been everywhere and seen everything. Hurry up and take his class as he is 92 and won't be around too much longer... Though he still runs so who knows...

Teacher is over 90 and LOVES to teach. Class is great, such a joy to go to after a long day at work. Does get off track a bit but his stories are amazing. He is an asset to his profession and to teaching.

This man is one in a million! His real-life stories are priceless! His assistant Dr. Faust is a great addition for information. You will have a take-home exam & 30 1-page papers on influential psychologists. Be sure to to start on this EARLY in the course as it will sneak up on you. The videos are very interesting! TAKE THIS CLASS WHILE YOU CAN!

Great teacher. Take this class, its interesting (he tells is own life stories which at his age is awesome because he tells stories throughout the last 90 years), easy (a little bit of work, but very easy), and fun.

Dr. Barrahal is WONDERFUL! If you can pick any class to take, it's this one! He is relaxed, doesn't give out any homework and helps you with your final, there is no stress in this class, he tells lots of stories, but always keeps you interested. Great class, I wish he taught more. He makes you want to become a psyc major instantly!

Dr. Barahal is incredibly easy. He gives you a list of the most 100 influentual psychologists. You have to choose 30 of them and write a page (with a half of the page representing a picture) information. Kind a time consuming. Then you have a take home test and he gives you half the answers in class. No homework! Get out early. Easy..Easy!

George Barrahal is a great instructor. He brings the real world into the classroom and has a lot of experience with how people learn. Ms. Faust, his assistant professor, is very knowledgeable too. The exam material is covered throughout the couse, no surprises. One paper is due, start early and it will be easy. Great class, fun experience.
