"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "There for you"

Make sure you have the book and basically have the chapter memorized before you go into the tests which are all open note though and if you take good notes you get extra credit! Great stories very fascinating life.

I would NOT recommend this teacher. He is VERY unorganized and you basically have to teach yourself the material. You have to read the textbook in order to pass this class. He doesn't teach, he'll just basically tell you stories. If there is anyway to take a different teacher I would do so.

I have had Ollerman for psych 101 before, and it seems that he is becoming more forgetful. His lectures are not consistent with the material. The tests are completely out of the book. He is VERY disorganized. He tested us on the same chapter FOUR TIMES. He does have some interesting stories, I was just hoping for a more cohesive learning experience

Love professor Ollerman's class!! I did not realize how fascinating the brain really is. I look forward to attending his classes. He always has great stories to tell and I feel as if I am beginning to understand myself as a person through taking this course.

Very interesting teacher. Does NOT teach the material. Learning = 100% out of the book. If you want to pass the tests, read the chapters and take notes.

My favorite psychology teacher at MCC by far. He makes everything interesting and his lectures are informative and entertaining. Tests are easy if you take good notes and read the book. Highly recommended professor if you take any PSY classes he teaches.

Mr. O is an awesome psych professor...extremely interesting and intelligent person. His lectures are incredible...you learn so much from him. He is very helpful no matter what you need help with and truly cares about his students succeeding in their careers whether or not they continue to study psychology. He is the most inspirational person!

Hes an awesome teacher. Had him for non-honors 266. He can stray off topic & has his own opinions. He welcomes yours tho. Book has EVERYTHING to do w/this class. Can use notes on test WRITE EVERYTHING. He'll test on anything to make sure you pay attention. Curves tests. ALWAYS willing to help w/anything! Very fair & funny as a plus!

He was a great guy, really fun, keeps class entertaining. All his material is out of the book and is somewhat difficult, but he grades on a curve and gives extra credit for turning in notes which you can use on the test. Little is used from lecture, but attendance is mandatory, 4 absences=withdraw. I would recommend him regardless though!

Outstanding teacher! You get to use notes from class on test also some handouts are provided. I liked the class so much I changed my major. It's an active class and easy to stay engaged. He is able to break down the psycho bable into understandable lamen terms. If you want to retain the basics of psychology then you realy need to take his class.

He is probably the most intelligent and cultured man I have ever met. Although you get to use your notes on the tests, the tests are very challenging. Make sure you take thorough notes and you'll do fine...you pretty much teach yourself by the way. Easy going, nice, cooky guy!

Really cool guy. I took his class spring 08. All you have to do is attend class and take notes on the chapters (He lets you use them on the test). Do that and you will get an A. He is also very interesting.

If you are an ESL student, then do not take him. I had a difficult time understanding everything, and his exams were like 100 questions each! and each question was made of 10 lines!.

One of the most interesting professors I've ever had. It seems like the tests are on the book only because he's required to. Basically, the class is reading the book and sponging up his knowledge. spunj

Vey cool guy!! But he did have a tendency to ramble on. His tests are almost right out of the book and not from the lectures. He is very understanding of scheduals and will let you make up tests if you are absent. And is just a cool guy. He knows o ton about his feild and is a great person toalk to if you want it as a career.
