Brem is super enthusiastic and committed to helping students become critical thinkers and engaged citizens. His class is very free form, so if you like a very structured experience, you may struggle (I did at first.) DO NOT PUT OFF DOING THE PORTFOLIO. The tests are mostly from lecture notes and the textbook study guides are crucial. Fun class!

I took him for Psych 3 and Poli Sci 4. He doesn't teach in a standard fashion, and is unlike any other teacher that I've had. If you are able to learn in an abstract way and environment then you will be fine. Classes were always very interesting, and there were always great discussions. He is an awesome teacher and very funny, and I learned a lot

His class is super easy. When I took him in Spring 2013 he had it to wear you could fail all the exams as long as you did his binder. I failed both exams with a 50% (because it was on the book which he never uses except for the tests) and did the binder and received an A. He is a very interesting professor. Never a dull moment.

His lectures are great. He does not have a technical standpoint, so if you are a practical individual you need to turn away. Innovation and creative minds will only understand the viewpoints of Abnormal Psychology. Brem helps pinpoint the major issues of abnormal disorders. You will not go home without learning anything.

Easy test study guides for book; your notes are study guide for lecture test questions; great test curve. If you know how to write APA you're good; if not, you'll struggle. If you do your portfolio every week, you're OK; if you,re not good at discipline, you're gonna have a hard time. If you need structure, it's hard; if not, you're good.

If you want is someone who is crazy with ideas that makes you think beyond what you expect and who pushes you at the transfer level and beyond; Brem's your guy. If you need help he'll clarify whatever you ask him to - if you're willing to do what he asks you get a lot; as much as YOU give YOU get. He shapes class on what the students ask.

As just a introductory class it was good. He introduced different political viewpoints how they coincide with others and what their roll or effect is in our society. If you are the type of student who expects the teacher to manically do all the work for you Brem is not for you. The more you engage him the more you learn. He knows stuff just ask.

Brem is an incredible professor, easily one of the best at Peralta. He wants you to challenge yourself and to leave the class knowing more about yourself relative to the subject matter at hand than when you came in, but that takes work!

He is a nice guy but honestly not much of a teacher, he is totally unorganized and not ready for the class. His lesson usually consists of him talking beginning with a subject then spiraling off into space. And if you're someone who likes to take notes in class, it's impossible! Scribbles on the board and rambling is hard material to take notes on.

Professor Brem suprisingly made the class really fun. I had him over the summer and although the classes were 2 hours long, Brem kept them interesting. He related the topics in class to the outside world and joked around to make the class more fun, yet easy to follow. His tests were only hard if you didn't study. But overall, he was a fun class.

I took his class over the summer, and it was a piece of cake. Not only was the class easy, you take a lot from it. Professor Brem is hilarious and keeps lectures very interesting. I was not bored at all. Just keep taking notes and look over the study guide, and it'll be an easy A.

This is the best professor for politics (and he teaches psychology too!). He uses the book a great deal for tests (so read them -- but lectures on how to use the material). If you have questions he will custom tailor the lecture to your needs and if not, he will lecture about how to think about poltics in a way that is useful to you. Great guy!

Take notes... you will need them at the end of the semester. Get a book, I had a hard time without one because you need it for the exam study guides. Overall, good teacher. He knows his stuff.

His testing system is way too easy to be true, just be ready to dive into the book and look up the answers to the study guide. Questions are likely to be the same. However, the lecture plays an important part because at least 1/3 of the test are based on stuff he said IN CLASS-TAKE NOTES! And TYPE THEM UP, because you'll have no turn them in. Easy!

Mr. Brem is a nice and funny person, BUT his teaching style to me isn't great. THE WHOLE ENTIRE time, it is just him talking, talking, talking, talking, talking, about whatever he's talking about (nothing to do with the book). His exams are very hard, BUT if you have PERFECT attendance, and do the one paper, and still fail 3 exams, youcanstillgetaC

Bring a tape-recorder if you can't write fast. This guy is full of info and is VERy helpful. His test ... are a bit hard if you don't understand the materials. His classes are designed so that you can still pass if you get all Fs on your tests.

Brem knows a lot political science. His class is very easy and you get to learn a lot. He gives students a study guide and he expects his students to find the answers for the exam. Most of the exam questions are given in his study guides. The only way you can fail Brem's exam is by not finding the answers to his study guides. If you put some effort

Robert is awesome! I probobly have learned more in his class about the world then in any other class. I think his classes should be mandatory for living life. LOL! He makes you think wheather you want to think or not. His philisophical topics are very deep, especially his lecture on 'flat land.' his unique approach to politics is very real and points out the reality of the world today. Robert's Abnormal Psychology class is probobly the most facinating class I've taken.I recomend him for the heavy thinkers.

He makes you think. He shows you how everything is connected and how it makes sense. The book is great and not that expensive (cool). He is probably the most interesting teacher I have had in all of my classes. He doesn't bore you with just facts -- between his lectures and the book, I am learning a lot of great stuff! Take this class!

Mr. Brem is a very good teacher and he goes above and beyond with the explanations. He has no problem with repeating himself and is very confident with the topic. He is hands down one of the best teachers I have ever had and I would highly recommend him. He made me interested in the subject of history and political science.
