Psych15 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is very inspirational. He himself I think carries part of history of psychology. He also is very easy to understand and to talk with. He also is enthusiastic when he answers students' questions and gives very helpful guides. I think he is very well experienced in teaching as well as enjoys exploring even more than he already knows.

The first class I took @ Harvard and I was contented. This Professor is good natured, honest, humble and compassionate. Father like, very approachable, and a good model. He has influenced me to pursue a master's degree in Psychology. Influenced me to change my perspective, interpretation and attitude in life into a brighter perspective. Thank you S

PSYCH101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's really funny and not boring at all during lecture. He tries to keep things interesting. Homework was maybe once a week for a few minutes only and two two page papers. Super easy. Tests are not confusing

Possibly the best professor I've ever had... and I've taken many undergraduate and graduate courses (now have PhD and 2 Masters degrees). Very clear, organized and well prepared.

Prof. Fernald is an AWESOME professor! He teaches on a conceptual level, and I have left the class with a deep appreciation for psychology. Go to his lectures -- they are very enjoyable! Easy class to get an "A", too.

All readings for the class were pertinent. Fernald was more than willing to discuss difficult concepts. But above all, he instilled a passion in me for psych
