PSY 412 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

At the first appearance, Dr. France's Psych Lab course seems like it is going to be a long monotone semester. If you attend class regularly, he is actually a very funny guy who wants you to get your degree. Maybe not the most fun class to take but he does his best to help you understand what it takes to carry out psych research and write reports.

If you want to actually learn this class then I advise Dr. France. He is not easy but he is very fair and has so much you can learn from. He is interesting and funny. If you are having problems he goes out of his way to help.

PSY 412 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

HIGHLY recommend taking him for lab he is very clear of directions and is always willing to help The papers are long but he is always willing to read over drafts and give you extra feedback. if you go to class and pay attention there is no reason you shouldnt get an A! his lectures are pretty boring though so its difficult to pay attention at times

His class CAN be a little boring at times. He's a really laid back guy and he's approachable, but don't piss him off. Don't be late, it REALLY annoys him. Give him the attention and respect he deserves, AT LEAST read the notes that he posts for you and you should be ok

Horrible teacher, was not helpful at all, complained every morning about his life. Was very rude, grades unfairly. Do not take this class with him. You will regret it.

Yes he is very monotoned, but he's a good professor attendance isn't mandatory, but you should go to every class you can, and take notes. SI sessions are extremely helpful. For all those crying he wasn't a good professor 9/10 didn't put the effort in. First exam I kind of studied got a B- next exam I studied and understood the info got 100/100.

this guy was monotone but he did actually care. he's a good warmup to the monotone who wont care. as long as you study the notes/study guides he gives you should do fine. just dont be late and disrespectful in class is all. btw hope you get a good SI guy. ours was more monotoned than france :(

Most of class he just reads notes off board. Makes fun of students, and lots of TMI moments about his personal life. Good taste in music though.

VERY boring teacher went to SI sessions studied a lot knew my stuff and still did not do well. He makes fun of his students especially those late. He does not seem to care about students. Thought tests were easy, got a 78% on Midterm. Not at all happy with this class. He is boring, lots of studying

Great psych teacher. The class is extremely manageable. He does in class extra credit from time to time so it's definitely worth going to class!!

Prof France is for sure an interesting guy. He can be VERY monotone and boring at times, but he is funny. If you attend his class regularly and follow along on his study guides, the class will be an easy A. You don't need the book. He hates when people show up late. Overall good class.

Easiest class I've ever taken. Dr. France may have a monotone voice, but his dry and sarcastic humor definitely makes up for it. If you listen to lecture, and review his notes, then don't even bother buying the book.

Very easy class and solid professor. Posts all of his notes online and posts study guides for tests. Can be boring at times, but has a good sense of humor and can make the class interesting. Highly recommend!

He is a great professor, sometimes does drone, but really does know his information, but does not push it on you which is really nice. 90% of the time there is no homework. Plus he gives study guides for tests which is awesome!

Professor France is a good teacher however he tends to DRONE! This makes his class very boring at times. All of his notes are on the power points. We didn't really use the book. Tests were Multiple choice and there were two web assignments that counted for your grade.He offers extra credit. Pretty easy class.I just found him boring lol
