PSYC 1300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I got an A in this class, only because of the massive curves he gives BECAUSE EVERYONE FAILS. I failed every test, but with the curves I got B's on everything. Then the final grades were curved again. Even though I got an A, I would NOT RECOMMEND this class to ANYONE. I would not wish the headaches this class gave me on my worst enemy...

1300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I showed up to literally 3 classes and pretty much slept through those too. I didn't study for any of the tests including the final. On the first 2 tests i got 25/45. I did the project the day it was due. For the online quizzes pull up the pdf of the textbook and use control f. I spent about 3 hours total on this class the entire semester,got an A.

PSYC 1300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Mandatory $100 textbook. 17 online quizzes w/ unlimited attempts (free 100s), quizzes are half of your grade! 3 tests 1 final, and 1 essay. Drops lowest test and has huge curves. Easily received an A but you need to read his textbook which has free audio too.

The worst class ever. He was in the hospital for quite a bit of the semester, and even his TAs didn't know what was going on. Due dates were not clear, and I taught myself based on his old lectures on youtube. Waste of my time. Thank god for the biggest curve on the face of the planet. You have to buy his book and syllabus. Stupid. Never take him.

PSYCH 1300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is the worst professor I've ever had. Never knew when anythings was due and his directions are unclear. I went to all but 2classes and I learned nothing, and didn't get the attendance credit that was promised. The online tests only give you 30 seconds per question, but you have unlimited attempts. The only upside is that he gives huge curves.

Psyc 1300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not really sure why everyone hates this guy. I thought his class was enjoyable and not too difficult, and he was nice. You must read the textbook; everything comes from it, including review questions helpful for study. The syllabus is in his written book, and it changes, so make sure to keep track of things he says in class. Grading is on a curve.

Do not take this class. The professor mumbles a lot and you can barely understand him. The quizzes are hard but there are PDFs online available. Luckily, there was a huge curve to the tests. There is an independent project but the class is really boring.

Decent professor if you pay attention and are not lazy. Class is super easy and almost guaranteed an A if you are some what dedicated to your studies. Although I would not recommend him, like I said it is super easy to get an A.

Attendance wasn’t mandatory. Didn't use blackboard or use his email. Bad communication regarding test dates or other due dates as the syllabus is always changing. For the last week or so of class he was out sick and didn’t teach us for the last test. You take the 3rd exam and final on the same day. Book is online. Quizzes are hard. Dont take him.

DO NOT TAKE. He is so so so terrible. I am not one to usually one to rag on teachers, but he was so terrible. So unorganized. He never informs or reminds you of deadlines. You don't learn anything. Never had such a terrible teacher.

He shows up at least 10 minutes late to class everyday. The only time you can actually hear him during his lectures is when he is yelling for students to be quiet. He does not stick to his syllabus and changes things without notifying anybody. He was rude when I went in to his office to ask for help. Just don't take him, please.

He is an AWFUL professor! He is hard to understand, extremely boring, and his lectures do not help one bit. He does not stay on topic during the lectures and class attendance is not mandatory. His "textbook"is some old computer software that really sucks. His quizzes are extremely difficult and there is way too much reading involved. DO NOT TAKE!!

Very boring teacher. No point in going to his class, the entire course is based off of the textbook, which is online and confusing at first. Changes deadlines and misses class frequently. If you do the quizzes, you'll do just fine in his class. I do not recommend him as a professor if you want a good lecture.

No doubt he is very disorganized but everybody complains when this is actually a class that you never have to show up tp but can still easily pass. He only give online quizzez that you can use pdf's for and get an easy A. He curves his test grades tremendously which makes it almost impossible to fail. And you have 1 independent project. NOT BAD

Worst teacher I've ever had. Mean, annoying, not helpful whatsoever. Ruined psychology for me. Do. Not. Take. Him.
