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.

This class is very demanding but if you are going to take it with anyone, take it with Mr. H. He is fair, very funny, and takes an interest in his students. Warning: There is A LOT of group work in this class, if you hate that sort of thing you need to avoid him. I feel like the group work helped me a lot though ... A++ recommended.

Hot! Very nice, understanding of students. Practically gives you the whole test before you take it. Lots of opportunity for extra credit. 6– 8 quizzes, 4 reaction papers(grades easily). Entertaining! Relates the material to stuff you can relate to. I laughed so hard in this class! Not much reading required! Great guy all around. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED

Class is really discussion and Mr. H expects class talking with each other. Not a just sit and take notes type class. Didn't always like that but some of my friends did. U have to be on ur toes or he will throw a foam ball at u and make u talk LOL now that its done! Group work too. If thats ur type of class go for it. If not stay away!

Mr. H is the best! He makes the class for us learning not like so many other profs. Very easy to get a hold of. But, I think most don't know the difference between easy and fair instructors. He's totally fair. I'll be getting a B in the course and no I'm not a total idiot like the other raters said. Methods is just hard like Stats. Thats reality.

Totally knows how to have a good time in the classroom. Maybe not for everyone though. You have to talk in class not just sit and take notes all the time. Made us comfortable to ask for help or questions. Really helpful and funny guy. Interesting lectures kind of like half-intellectual half-fratguy so easy to understand on many levels.
