psychology 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

One of the worst online classes I have ever taken. All you did was read the text and take a short quiz. He gave two essays and never graded them. He gave discussion points and then never reviewed or totalled the discussion. Final was way harder than the whole class - no warming of 100 questions in 2 hours online! Never responds to emails.

Psyc 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Easy class to get an "A" every week: Read 1 chap,1 quiz and 1 DB. You can turn in DB's at any time. Quizzes have a short window, so make sure you pay attention to the dates he says they are available. He is nonexistent you can never get a hold of him. To be honest you really don't need to. Everything is cut and dry and to the point!

Psyc 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great class. Lectures were thought out, clear, and helpful. Concepts were related to our own life experiences. You absolutely must read the book to do well. Its a lot of reading, but it helps your understanding. The study guides given for the main exams are great. Also gives you study questions for each exam. Again, great class.

PSYCH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

McPherson does not deserve any kind of negative criticism because he is a gem. His class is informative and he really wants his students to do well. The guy is so genuine and loves what he teaches. I would definitely take him as a teacher over and over. The tests are simple and the class is relatively simple.

Psy 230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Loved this class! He's organized from the lecture to the test, speaks clearly, and has excellent hand writing. Also funny, patient, and his classroom is relaxed at all times. Treats you like an adult and doesn't care much about attendance nor does he hold you longer than necessary. If you do the vocab and read you'll easily pass the class.

PSYC101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's laid back and you only need to show up for test days if you really want, but I suggest taking notes. The grading is based on the tests only, which is horrible if you're a bad test taker. Overall, he's an easy going teacher and knows psychology like no other. But his tests are hard and you have to make sure you digest the book thoroughly.

LOVE LOVE LOVE HIS CLASS! He's super helpful. He provides study guides/questions to help you for upcoming tests. He lectures and sometimes shows videos but NEVER BORING. He's really kind and cares about his students. And he looks like Morgan Freeman!

I took his online class which was pretty terrible. He at first was very great at answering e-mails but after a while, completely disappeared. I honestly thought he died. I would avoid his class if possibly. Otherwise it's a pretty easy class but the final is a long one so be prepared for it!
