Psych 3154 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

She's really nice and helpful! If you take good notes and go to class you'll do well. The readings are short so do them if you can. The grades are based on 6 quizzes and 3 short papers. One of the best professors I've had at GWU so far!

Very knowledgable professor who seems genuinely interested in what she teaches. Her quizzes are really easy if you look at the slides and go to class. She even drops the lowest quiz grade. Pretty easy grader as well. Very interesting class overall.

I thought she made lectures really interesting even funny at times. Tough grading at times but I learned a lot from the class and still got a decent grade.

Psych012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

the notes she presents in class are way too general to study from. definitely go over the material in the books. Quizzes are typically difficult. Papers seem that they are graded randomly, I think she barely reads them. Final exam was suprisingly easy. I was barely passing the quizzes and got a 95 on the final.

she was impossible!! good prof. but why do you have to be so tough on people?!! I know that everyone in my class worked endless amounts and ended up filing report against her.. that must say something. for those who haven't met her yet.. you are lucky that she is gone..

This woman must have a split personality disorder because in my opinion she can not be concidered a quality teacher in any sense of the word. She is an impossible grader and will never negotiate. Most of your papers will be handed back with low grades for no apparent reason. stay away.

Social Psyc Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Considering how much BS this subject is, she really does a good job making it interesting and fun. The class is definitely easy if you just put in a night or two of work before the exams and go to lectures. Do the readings before the lecture just to be nice so she doesn't get pissed. She's a nice teacher.

Psyc 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Made class much harder than it should have been. Two research papers are difficult and harshly graded, as are tests. Material is not that bad in and of itself, but the class is difficult. Take another professor unless you want to work hard.

Even though the material in this class is pretty easy, Abbe is a tough (and subjective) grader. If you are a good writer, youll probably do well on her tests. Participation is key in this class, make sure you go to her office hours. Even though I learned alot in her class, I really wish I wouldve taken another professor.

Group Dynamics Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

You either hate her or love her. I thought the class was well organized, she was very nice and occasionally funny in a very dry sorta way. Class was boring at it's worse, engaging at it's best. You can really learn a lot from her, and the exams are really not that bad.

psych 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class was much harder than it shouldve been. I worked really hard and I ended up getting a B. Grades come from 4 exams and 2 papers. The papers suck and she tears them apart. In other 101 classes, professors give two really easy exams. I would definitely recommend taking the other professor.

psych 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

going to office hours and every class was the reason I could pull an A in this class. She will respond to email quickly and help so much, you just have to know to ask. I learned sooo much, and if you want to be prepared for 106, you should really take her, and this is coming from someone who always looks for the easy way out.

Social Pysch Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her class was pretty easy and well organized but I hated it. It seemed like it was designed to teach 8th graders, there are frequent quizes to make sure you're reading and little essays that seem more like busy work than a legitimate use of my time. Her grading is also pretty subjective, you must phrase things the way she does or it will be worng.

PSYC 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Learned a lot in her class. She was always willing to help one whether it is through e-mail or office hours. Tests were hard, final was easiest one of all of them. Would definately recommend her if you want to learn and work hard. Loved the class

Not very friendly or understanding at all. Quizzes are unnecessarily difficult and she is an extremely picky grader when it comes to papers and quizzes. Only one exam which is the final and that kinda nails you. Wayyy to strict on attendence, and is overall just annoying.

her expectaitons/grading is clear, and you have a lot of grading opportunities (i.e., your grade isn't based only on 2 big tests, etc). she even gives extra credit, and all her powerpoints are on blackboard. very straightforward - but be warned, you must really go to every class to get an A. but an A is definitely attainable, don't worry!

PSYCH 12 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

For a lower level psych class this class is extremely challenging. Your grade in the class is dependent upon three essay assignments and 5 quizzes and one final exam. Going to class is essential. Do the extra credit and you should do fine. Do not expect an easy A.
