PSB3002 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

If you study for one week for the timed online exam and expect to do well you will not. Most questions have more than one answer and taking pages of notes and doing the assessments will not help. Do not recommend take another psych class if possible.

PSB3002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took the online version of PSB3002 with him, the wrote the book is hard to read, i rather read an orgo book than reading this book! he seems very arrogant, he likes to show off through his text..the chapter exam is VERY unreasonable..25mins for 35 question, I love psych but not with him. He needs to improve his book, definitely not recommended.

PSB3002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was one of my favorite professors here so far! I loved his class even though I never had any experience with biology. You will have to work hard though if this is the case; I got an A minus but it is possible to get an A if you work hard. Go to TA office hours and the study sessions. Do the extra credit, read the book, and go to class!

David Smith is by far one of my favorite professors I've had at this University. The course is challenging but his lectures are interesting and entertaining. Outside of class he is very friendly. 2 years later he still recognizes me gives me a wave when I see him on campus. Read the book carefully and study the Powerpoints well and you'll get an A.

Def should've listened to the reviews about this class. Prof is really arrogant. Never went to class- it's all about reading the book. Tests are very specific and straight from the text, lectures were useless. Got an A- with hard work, and I'm a bio major. Wouldn't recommend if you're a non-science oriented psych major. This class is science HEAVY.

I really liked Dr. Smith and the way he taught this class. The articles we had to read were difficult to understand, but he extracted and taught the salient points. The exams were also difficult, but they were take-home. He was kind and helpful. It was a great class. I would take another course with Dr. Smith.

His exams are really hard and very specific. some sections he would barely cover and still test us on. he barely taught a lot of the subjects. i do not recommend taking him.

After reading previous reviews at the beginning of the semester I was nervous but I thought he was a great teacher. Loved listening to lectures, very interesting. Gave review sheets and held review sessions. Tests were fair. Offered 15 points extra credit and a make up exam.
