Psych 41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. A is the best! His lectures are so thought provoking but fun at the same time. Many times we would be in the class cracking up. He doesn't play when it comes to getting work done. He is very helpful but expects you to apply yourself. I took him in the summer so had to take exam every week on 5 ch, very intense. I got an A but worked for it.

Psych 1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Apenahier is one of those teachers who only seriously helps those that are looking to be challenged. His upper psych levels involve difficult essay-structure answers, so be prepared. He gives bonus points and extra credit only IF he see's you trying for his psych 1 classes. Studying in this classes is mandatory if you wish to succeed.

Difficult teacher! His tests are all essays no scan-trons.You have to write your own summary of a newspaper article that pertains to what your learning. Nice, but sense of humor is corny.take someone else if you can.

Psych2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Biological Psych is very technical, and Apenahier was instrumental in breaking down the lingo into terms that we can understand. A challenging course, but was saturated with valuable information for all psych majors; especially for those who want to emphasize in neurology. If anyone needs help with psych 1 or 2, I tutor in the SSC-library 2nd floor

This is the worst class ever. He lectures page by page from the book, then says he doesn't like the book. Book has no flow. Since his previous class cheated, he refused to give a study guide (for an essay test that counts for 25% of total grade). He gets waaaay off topic and class gets out of control. He seems nice, but I WOULD NEVER TAKE HIM AGAIN

Psychology 1&41 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Apenahier is a very helpful man and is very understanding about personal issues. All you have to do is talk to the man and he will try his best to help you pass the class. I am not a Psychology major and managed to get a "C" in both classes that I had taken with Dr. Apenahier. He mentored me and gave a lot of insight on how to study and learn.

Knows what he is talking about. His tests are easy since they are straighforward with no tricks and he gives you clues within the test. Aside from his accent you should have no problem understanding and passing his class.

He loves what he's teaching, but he's preachy. His accent makes it difficult to follow him. If you have a study guide, and study it, you should have no problem passing.
