He speaks well, so going to class is useful because it is easy to pay attention. Tests are fair, he gives hints during class too. Lots of opportunity for bonus marks. My only complaint is that I wish the instructions for the research assignment were more clear, the way it was outlined was confusing at first.

Great prof, the online lectures really helped. He focuses on the DSM V so make sure you don't skip that in your textbook. If you read the chapters and watch the lectures, you will do fine. Lots of work though, weekly assignments, one 5-6 page paper and 2 exams. I would love to take more courses taught by Peter.

The material is relatively easy, however, the tests were very difficult. There seemed to be a disconnect between the material taught and the material on the test. The class average was around 55% as a result. Don't fall behind on the course work. One of the very few courses in psychology that I had to struggle to get an A.

Probably my favourite prof so far in three years at York. I look forward to his lectures, he's funny, personable, helpful and gives you just the right amount of challenge. Just wish there were more like him at York!

Clearest professor ever. He explains things until even those undeserving of their acceptance into York can understand. VERY animated and lively, approachable and respectable. The material is well laid out and manageable. Weekly group work, 3 tests, and a 10-page research paper. A pretty busy course, but it makes you think - like a U-course should.

challenging to get an A but definitely possible with enough effort. Need to keep up with the material as there are weekly assignment, midterms were difficult - need to know many specific seemingly irrelevant details

Very organized, clear, detailed and what you would expect from a 3rd year course. He gives you many opportunities to prove your understanding of the material (1 midterm, 1 final, research essay, weekly assignments) yet it seemed difficult to get an A+, however relatively easy to get an A.

3 Tests (all MCQ, non accumulative) and 1 Essay that requires a lot of current study references. Gets to work in actual groups. Although groups are chosen by surname's alphabetical order, all successful group works are only bonus marks: you don't actually lose mark by having an unsupportive group members. Ends early & post online videos to fill it

He's a little intimidating but generally wants you to do well in the class. He definitely is one of the best profs at York. He is also really funny so going to class is quiet entertaining and his bonus marks help a lot too! Exams are based on his online lectures, the text and in class convos (he gives a lot of hints in class on what to focus on).

He is a good Professor, very passionate but his exams are very detailed. Exams are not based on concepts, bolded terms, or even lectures, it is all detailed stuff from the textbook

Peter can't stay on topic, he talks about completely irrelevant things which makes it hard to follow. He doesn't answer questions at all without talking about how important he is. I'm not taking this course at York but I couldn't find him under Guelph-Humber.

He himself is very nice but taking the course online with him is a bad idea, I wouldn't suggest it. A lot of students were frustrated with his online teaching as well as confusion during exams.

He's so passionate about psychology and he's so organized, that it's really hard not to want to do well in his courses! He's very precise in what he expects and always follows through. He does use a lot of "big" words (was a chllenge for me, since I'm not Canadian), but if you go over the slides, you don't even need to read the book for the tests!

His exams did not test knowledge. They tested who was able to figure out his games better with the tricky wording. The highest mark on the group paper assignment in our class was a 73. Our group got a 72-second highest. He thought these were phenomenal grades.. skip his class if you want to maintain your GPA or want to actually learn something

Peter is incredibly nice and very helpful--he wants all of his students to succeed and will give bonus marks to students for completing small assignments. The assignment was a little vague but the tests were fair. At times, he let the class control the lectures and wasted time on irrelevant discussions. He rarely let us out early.

The textbook is actually used, lectures are all over the place and feel pointless. Read the powerpoints at home for the exam. Exams are M/C and fair. Research assignment is unclear and the marking's unfair. Group work is annoying but expected in a class like this and you can get bonus points. I didn't like the class but it's not horrible.
