Professor Span, or Sherry, as she likes to be called, is honestly a great professor. Pay attention, attend the lectures as she doesn't just recite the book. READ the book. Use the study guides. Simple class. 2 papers, 4 exams. There is a final. The only reason I got the grade I did was because I was lazy. TAKE SPAN, especially if you're a freshman.

LOVED this class! Sherry is an awesome teacher: great at explaining concepts and, even in a lecture hall with 150 students, you can tell she really wants each student to succeed and makes herself available for whatever help she can provide. I recommend this class 100%!

This class is a bit of a challenge to get a high grade. The exams are pretty difficult, everything else is simple because she thoroughly explains assignments and gives you a chance to rewrite papers. You did not need to bring the book to class but you will need it to pass. She is an amazing teacher and you will not regret taking her class.

Continued from below: besides having 4 exams (she drops the lowest out of the 4), there are 2 behavioral explanations worth 20 pts. each (super easy), 1 write up experiment worth 20 pts. (easy), and be a participant for a research (easy but required. You need to do 2 experimentations). Again, her test is what's going to kill your grade. STUDY!!!!

I admire Sherry since she is extremely knowlegeable. Always open for office hours and always willing to help you. However, this class was hard for me because of her test. You get 4 of them in the semester but she drops the lowest score. Her test are not what you think of. Simply do not memorize definitions. You need to make up examples to do well.

Cant stress it enough how great this woman is. Very energetic, hilarious, & really knows her stuff. Experiment and behavior explanation papers are pretty easy. MAKE SURE TO STUDY for the exams! 4 in total, drops the lowest score at the end of the semester. & you have to participate in these 2 psychological experiments. Take her! You wont regret it!

Dr. Span is incredibly funny and well informed, and while this class was extremely interesting, it was also very difficult. 4 exams all of which included symptoms,causes, and treatments of the various disorders you'll learn about. Pay very close attention to details and don't fall behind in the readings.

I loved Sherry! She is one of the best professors I've had at CSULB. She is very passionate and caring about what she does, and it shows. She always had fun stories and examples to illustrate her point. I was never bored in class. She is a little challenging, but it's worth it. Amazing prof!

VERY good professor. Great sense of humor. She has been teaching PSY 100 for over 15+ years, so she knows her stuff. RECOMMENDATION: record her lectures. Sit in the front. Textbook is different from what she lectures. Exams are based off her lectures. If you can rewrite everything from her lectures, I can guarantee you will get an A. 4exams+final

Span is a great professor. Very entertaining and interesting. I want to attend class even if it isn't mandatory. Exams are easy if you study! Just use the study guide she gives you. Overall, teaches you a lot of applicable knowledge. Take her if you can!

I absolutely love this class and I love Sherry! She presents the information in an interesting way with tons of examples including video clips. Her tests can be pretty hard but she is always available and willing to help. When my class requested more practice questions and time in class to review before exams, she didn't hesitate to do just that.

Love going to this class. There is a lot of information but she presents it in an interesting way. She cares about her students and always has the class laughing. Her exams are difficult! The first exam I studied briefly and got a 69%. Second exam I studied how she suggested and got a 91%. She drops lowest exam scores, STUDY and you will do well.

Professor Span is great! Her lectures are always funny and entertaining! She is quirky and super cool! Her tests are hard though. The first test will kick your butt, but after that, you'll know what to expect and she drops your lowest test grade anyway. Study the terms through out the entire unit for a little while each day! Good luck!

Sherry is a great professor. This class is for serious students. She does not hand out As, you have to work for them. But she gives you all of the information you need to succeed. She makes time for her students and she obviously loves Abnormal Psych. Her passion is contagious.

Nice teacher, but this Abnormal Psychology course was extremely difficult. Asked for too much on tests while providing students with poor PowerPoints. Struggled just to barely get a B-. This class made me feel lost. Did not know whether I studied the right information or not. PowerPoint was not always consistent with book.
