PE320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Vernacchia was by far the most motivational professor I experienced in college. If you actually listen and apply the information given in class to life beyond the classroom, you will never be the same. Dr. V changed my life. If you seek to constantly improve as an individual in all aspects, take this class and listen carefully.

PE230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He makes up equations out of WORDS (success= preparation*opportunity) and other ridiculous nonsense and actually TESTS you on them!! Grades on tests are also unfair, and he is NOT flexible on answers to questions about material that is completely MADE UP by him. Can't believe people buy into him and his lecture "material"! SO frustrating!!

PE320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class is fairly easy. Extreme bias towards athletes. Tests and projects are easy. Likes to tell stories and talk about himself a lot, which makes less stuff that you need to learn. Can be interesting if you believe what he is saying.

PE320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Easy class. Attendance is mandatory, which sucks. He only ever tests out of the book he wrote, I never even opened the other one. He was mildly entertaining, boring at times.

PE 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. V has lots of experience in the feild and tells lots of stories. For the test you just have to memorize the lecture slides. I really enjoyed the class but memorizing the 15 steps to goal attainment is tedious in irrelevent, however it was a good class.

yeah, he talks about things that he's done over the years, but you have to remember that he helped to CREATE the sport psych field. What else and who else do you talk about if you're the expert in the field? Great prof who really cares and has high expectations for his students.

Good stories, but needs to realize there is more to sport than track & field

Great teacher-very knowledgable with lots of experience with the Olympic Committe. Likes to talk about himself a little too much though! Easy class.
