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

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.

First thing you need to know about this class is to not bring your laptop/tablet and avoid talking or she'll scream LOUD. Besides that it's a fun and interesting class and she interacts a lot through Iclicker, which is calculated into your grade so attend class. Buy the book because homework comes from learnsmart assignments.

DO NOT USE ELECTRONICS OR HAVE SIDE CONVOS or else you will be called out in the middle of class. Other than that she is a great prof. do all the learnsmart assignments and follow the test review word for word and you should get an A! she gives lots of extra-credit opportunities!

This class is VERY easy, however, don't talk or use tablets/laptops in class. She will yell into a mic and make you change seats if you disturb her lecture. Textbook is mandatory to do homework assignments. There's lots of extra credit offered! I>clicker is used every class. Overall, she's pretty cool.

She is extremely mouthy and yells alot but the class is a really easy A if you do all the assignments and read what's assigned. She gives plenty of opportunities to bring your grade up so there really is no excuse for failing the course.

This class is REALLY easy. She drops the lowest test grade for the first 3 exams. The Final exam is mandatory,everyone must take it and is taken into account in your grade. She gives hw, review sheets, xtra credit, and lets you make corrections on your tests. iCklicker used and serves as class participation. Dont talk while she is lecturing...

This teacher gives you so many opportunities to get extra credit, there is no possible way anyone can fail her class unless they just don't do the work at all. The homework is easy and it actually helps you study. TAKE notes from the power points and you will get a good grade in her class.

This class is very difficult. The professor lectures very clearly off of her PowerPoint presentations, and she will most certainly answer any questions you may have. Many people complain because of the way she scolds her students. Basically, don't act like a fool in her class, and respect everyone by not disrupting. Then, you won't be scolded.

TAKE HER! She's awesome. She tries to make the lessons as simple and clear as possible. Makes the exams EXACTLY like the study guide. Gives extra credit. The only reason why I didn't get 100 in the class was because I never went to class so I missed points for the Iclicker questions.

She is by far one of the best professor at FIU, she is clear, fair, and yes you need to read and study, but this is a great class, very interesting , and she works very hard so students can understand the material. DO NOT TEXT IN CLASS, SHE GETS VERY UPSET.
