PSY 2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's not an awful person, but in class she can get really annoying and childish. It can be quite funny though, especially if you're talking and she calls on you. She says "YO WASSUP" on occasion. As for the class, it's simple and easy. Read the book/do the learnsmart assignments and at least pay some attention in class. Don't forget your iClicker

PSY 2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is immature and rude. Despite that, the class is pretty easy and simple to follow. You just need to go to class, takes some notes, and study a bit before the exams. Attendance isn't technically mandatory but she does count iClicker participation and include information on the exams spoken about in class that isn't on the textbook.

PSY 2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Such an easy class! She is rude, no doubt about that but she gives so many opprotunities to get no less than a B in the class. Her study guides are directly related to the tests, I managed to get an A on all of them. She explains everything really well you just have to pay attention to the fill in the blanks&do the iclicker questions :)

PSY 2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Shpurik is a mediocre professor. She posts the notes online but doesn't fill in the blanks which is no help. The homework is easy but the tests require lots of studying. She often stop class just to try and quiet down an auditorium full of people who don't care. I failed all of her tests, did the homework and still managed to get a B+.

Easy class, highly suggest her. Attendance isn't mandatory but iClicker is 10% of grade. She gives a lot of extra credit that will eventually by half your grade and the other half will be the exams. I barely studied and I passed with an A. Take her!

Shpurik is what you call an average college professor.She seems interested in the subject, teaches big classes, tries to keep students motivated.If you do everything she asks including the extra credit you are bound to have an A. Study guides are a definite plus!Pet peeve of mine is when the teacher punishes everyone for one student, she does that.

Easy class. Gives a lot of extra credit including test corrections. Although attendance is not mandatory, iClicker is 10% of your grade. She is clear about how she expects her students to behave.

PSY2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

What's easy about this class, is that the she gives a lot of extra credit opportunity and allows corrections for the exams. I personally don't like her and found her yelling in the middle of the lecture extremely annoying, but as a professor she's really good and clear. Easy A but you do need to put some effort.
