Psy217 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

Worst teacher I've had at HCC. I didn't miss a class read the book, took notes, and signed up for the books online stuff so I could use their recourses to study. I usually am an a/b student and was failing his class, yet whenever I took one of the books online quizzes I got an A. Over half my class dropped before the end of the semester.

Take notes,what he talks about in class is what is important on a test. You have to put the effort in and you will do fine. But effort is what college is about.

Professor Dube is a very nice man. He tries to be helpful when you ask, but I hated his class! He's a very hard teacher. Doesnt go by the book at all. Barely reviews for tests and ONLY grades you on four tests. Also, he doesnt try to connect with the students. Goes off topic a lot. I would not recommend him.

Wow, I am surprised to read all of these negative comments! I thought he was a great teacher. His classes consisted of lectures but he made everything easy to understand. His tests were difficult at times bu they were never unfair. I would reccommend to take a class taught by Rod Dube.

This class was though. A lot of people that were in my class complained how he was tough. Honestly its all based on how YOU apply yourself. Take notes, pay attention, and you will be fine!

He is very intelligent and is great at relaying the material. Make sure you pay attention in his lectures and study hard. The grade you finish this course with will depend on how much effort and interest you decide to demonstrate in the course.

Make sure you write down what ever he talk about. Don't mind looking at the book. NEVER miss his class! All his exams are from lectures and he tends to go off topic. He will mark your answer wrong if you don't word it the way he words it (even if you are giving the right answer) Just study to what he says write down his EXACT WORDS !!!

Didn't understand him. He was unclear. Tried to be funny. Got off topic all the time and is really unorganized. He skipped class multiple times without warning. His final exam had nothing to do with the outline given to us.

I loved what i learned in his classes, and left his class every time smarter. He is lecture style but take a lot of notes! And read! If you tkae no notes thinking you will reme,ber everything, and dont read (since he covers most of the book in class) you will fail the tests. But other than that, i did like the way he teached. He is very smart.

Great Teacher. You need to work to earn your grade. those that want to just sit back and coast have no chance. Take great notes, READ THE BOOK (he likes to add a few questions to see if you did), and dont be rude and talk at the back of the room or text and You'll do just fine...

Dube is a tough teacher. He just sits and lectures and is unclear on his material. He also wore the SAME clothes to every single class. On the upside, he knows his material and is funny.

Dube was a tough teacher. He would go off subject a lot. He let you kno what was expected of you and held you to it. Many kids had trouble with the final essay because of simple things that were clear in the directions. He doesnt give out any breaks, unlike many other teachers. I enjoyed his class and i am not interested in psy.

Horrible human being. His study guides are useless for studying for exams. Exam questions dont really test knowledge, they test how well you remember his quaint stories from lecture. Final exam was not cumulative,based of of 2 points not even discussed in class. I can see why he is no longer practices privately & had to leave Westfield State.
