"Tests? Not many" "Hilarious" "Tests are tough"

Honestly, if you show up and listen, you'll pas if not get an A. You could read his book, since it is the same, word for word, as his lectures, but then you'd be missing out on hilarious lectures. There has not been a class period that the entire lecture hall has not burst into the laughter at least once. Love this class

SOP 2772 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

The reviews for him really scared me, but TAKE NEGY. He's very passionate about what he teaches and provides accurate information. He is very opinionated and vocal about it, but if you can't handle that, you shouldn't be in a college class. The textbook was a printout of the slides and the tests were straight from the notes and easy. Great teacher!

SOP 2772 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A
"Respected by students" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Very controversial. You will know his opinions on just about all of his material by the end of the class. Pretty funny. If you show up to his lectures and take notes, you'll be fine. His "textbook" is just a print out of his powerpoints. Just take notes on your laptop. Saves you $65. Tests are easy if you show up to his lectures.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough" "Tests? Not many"

The book was easy to read and the lectures were generally entertaining, but Negy gives atheist rants almost every lecture, and won't listen to any contradictory input his students try to give in class. He is a poor teacher, and tests on details that aren't important to psychology. He does a disservice to his students interested in psychology.

"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Tough Grader"

I took the class twice because I didn't pass the first time, but honestly I still enjoyed every lecture. He WILL tell you his opinion and if you are easily offended don't take this class. But if you're not easily offended and can take a joke, you will love (most) of his lectures. The tests are rough and you NEED to read the book and pay attention.

He is funny and it makes the class interesting. Overall, he was very offensive and he is NOT helpful at all and he doesn't really care about you! When he teaches he thinks he's always right and he wants you to think like him. The book is definitely necessary! His test are hard and and short, so study! I recommend NOT taking him if you can help it.

I would recommend the class if you're going to put the time into studying. As long as you read the book and go to class you will pass. Although his grading system is obnoxious, he only gives 4 tests and thats most of your grade, he is a great teacher. The class is very interesting and you will enjoy his lectures.

PSY 2012 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Strongly recommend not taking this course with negy. Yes he's funny and all but when it comes down to it, the only thing that matters is getting a good grade. He only has 4 tests and they are only 20 questions each, which screwed me over. Mainly because his tests were honestly 40% textbook content and 60% random stuff that was irrelevant. AVOID!!

He gets kind of preachy about atheism, but I agree with pretty much everything he says. He teaches well, textbook is pretty clear. Tests are short and difficult. Go to the classes, read the text book and study, you'll learn but it isnt easy.

As a prof. Negy is great. He knows what he is talking about and is specific about what he expects from his students. Read every word from his textbook and attend every lecture. Not attending is an easy way to fail this course. Try not to be too sensitive. I didn't like what he had to say about religion, but I can't deny that he's a great professor.

Super specific on his exams, but that's because you actually have to read the book AND attend lectures! But who wouldn't want to go to class?...he's amazing and hilarious. Took him for Sexual Behavior (received a B) and am currently in Cross-Cultural and will hopefully also get a B. I always study last minute though... :/ TAKE HIM. I LOVE HIM.

Lecture is mandatory to attend. You must read the book. He asks very specific questions on the test, so if you do not study you will not do well. I studied my butt off and managed to get a B. I had numerous friends who dropped the class because they were failing. You must work for your grade.

4 grades. I didn't do well on the first two because THE QUESTIONS AREN'T ABOUT ANYTHING WE TALK ABOUT OR IN THE BOOK. I am thinking of withdrawing. Ridiculous. Funny and all, just looks to screw your GPA over.

Professor Negy was a great professor who actually made learning enjoyable. He made the material appealing to the class and was very apt to intellectual conversations within the classroom.

I absolutely loved going to his lectures. He is a very intelligent man and he says things that are very interesting and make you think. He really is a great teacher. The only problem is that his exams are very hard, and I would spend up to 10 hours studying for one exam. Oh and he loves to talk about sex. Funny guy.

He is an AWESOME professor. Yes he can be offensive, but he's just voicing his opinion and he encourages us to voice ours. Some people just asks questions that upset him, so he sometimes doesn't respond as nicely as people want him too. Do well on your test and use the sons credits to your advantage. Study chapters ahead of time.

He is very offensive and if you are like me and have a set of morals, you are going to be dreading the class before you walk in the door. His tests are literally impossible. I am a straight A student except for his class. Managed a B with luck from Sona hours, even though those were inputted wrong and I should have got 12/10 not 11/12. Don't take.
