PSY203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: F

He's very nice and fun to have as a professor. His tests don't really have much to do with what he talks about in class and he can make it very confusing at times. He encourages active conversation within the classroom and A LOT of psychological stories WILL come up throughout the classroom.

PSY203 PSY209 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

So much fun in class. Likes to tell stories from his own practice. Fun and easy going class environment. Helps you all the time. Quizzes and tests are from the book so take your own notes from the book. Final is so easy. Its mostly just diagnosing and treating each case.

PSY101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Hobbs was totally awesome, and anyone who says different doesn't know what they were talking about. The class was challenging enough to keep me interested but easy enough that it didn't take up all my time just trying to get an A. Take him if you get the chance!!!

Out of all of the professors I've ever had, Hobbs is by far one of the best. He is always up for discussion and is extremely helpful outside of class. You will miss out if you don't take a class with this guy!

PSY201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Definately take ALL classes he teaches! (taken PSY 101, 201, and 203) Hobbs always keeps class interesting.. One of the few teachers who really care for students. Always has great visuals and discussions to make the info really stick. He's the reason I'm a psych major now! I really wish teachers at my 4 yr. University were like him! I miss Hobbs :(

Jim Hobbs is one of the best professors I have ever had. He has a lot of experince in his feild and brings that into the classroom. His exams are usually easy, howver, you actually learn something from them as well. The classes are very hands-on rather than just from the book. All of his classes are extremely useful and informative--I took all my p
