Houska was by far the best teacher I've had at UNLV. He was funny and made psychology so interesting that I would actually read the book. His test were easy; they were online and he didn't mind if you used the book either. We often got out of his lectures early but I felt like I learned so much. I'm not sure if he's teaching at UNLV though

This class was tough for me. It was hard to comprehend bc he wanted us to use the class material in real life situations. His test are online,but they are extremely difficult.He does allow you to use an index card as a test helper tho. He gives extra credit, and he grades pretty fairly on his hw assignments,so just turn something in!

Avoided stats for a long time, and thank God for that. Houska is a great instructor, and I don't think hes teaching at UNLV next semester, which is unfortunate, because he makes a very intimidating class bearable and fun (very corny jokes, but funny)

Teaches with swagger. Never a dull moment in his classes. Even for Stats! The Republic of Houska can be an acquired taste for some but he definitely grows on you. Great teacher and awesome person all around.

Uses YouTube, lots of music, and humor in class. Usually expects discussion and reading from students. People get put on the spot if they don't read, so be sure to skim at least and print out the journal articles he requires. Very fair and reasonable teacher. There's easier teachers out there but I recommend.

I took him a while ago. He gave out study guides, so you had the answers to all of the test questions!
