PSY 2011 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A
"Hilarious" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough"

Ok teacher, but very biased. Classes are less on psychology and more on his views. He is slightly arrogant and loves to pick fights. The textbook is easy to read and interesting. The tests are VERY specific. You must attend class and take good notes, especially on the videos. The tests have a lot of info from the videos that don't seem relevent.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read" "Tests are tough"

Your grade consists of FOUR TESTS (4), he requires you to purchase his published text and a book (Sun Chief). It was a lot to read and if you want to pass this class you MUST READ THE BOOKS. The material covered in class is 50% of what is on his test & 50% from the 2 books. If you want to pass read everything and take notes on the videos!!

"Tough Grader" "Get ready to read" "Skip class? You won't pass."

The irony is Professor Negy likes to emphasize upon the bigots of the world especially people who are religious (mainly Christians) yet he is a huge bigot himself. I have witnessed him embarrass students for their spoken opinions. If he doesn't like what have to you say he will minimize you.

"Hilarious" "Amazing lectures" "Get ready to read"

Dr. Negy's class is very interesting. He is hilarious. He only has 4 tests including the final, but the final is not cumulative. Half of his questions come from his lectures and the other half come from his textbook that he wrote. Don't worry, the book is very cheap. Just study your in-class notes and read the book for the tests, and you will pass.

"Get ready to read" "Hilarious" "Amazing lectures"

Dr. Negy makes the course very interesting. He is hilarious and his lectures won't have you bored. Half of his test questions come from his lectures and the other half come from his book (he wrote it and it is very cheap). Just review your lecture notes and read the book, maybe make some note cards and you shouldn't have a problem passing.

I think Negy is a really good teacher and he's really passionate about what he teaches. He incorporates his own opinion a lot and tries to make jokes. You'll watch videos and the power points are straightforward. The book is just a printout of all the slides w some fill in the blank so if you always come to class you don't need to buy it

Highly recommend him to anyone. He's very funny and makes lectures so entertaining. Just show up and read his textbook and you will pass no problem. He has me interested on making psychology my major.

"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

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!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Respected by students" "Amazing lectures"

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
