Amazing teacher! I wish he taught more classes! Makes learning all of the information easy to remember. As long as you attend class and read the book, you'll get a good grade. If you have the chance to take any class with Tarnowski, then take it!

The best psychology teacher at FGCU by far! I wish that they offered more classes with him because I would definitely take them. The class can be intense at times and it does take a lot of work, but as long as you read the book and take plenty of notes during his lectures you will be fine. If you need extra help make sure you go to his office hours

Tarnowski is legit. He's the smartest professor I've had at FGCU. Abnormal Psych is a pretty easy class all you have to do is read the book and you'll be fine. I did that and got an A.

I graduated from FGCU with my BA in psych and by far Dr. Tarnowski was my favorite professor. Yes, he is intimidating because he expects a lot out of his students, but if you take every available class with him, I promise you that you will learn and succeed in your major. Hands down, my all time favorite professor!

I had him for abnormal psych, summer session. Lots of information to cover! Do your reading, and ask questions if you don't understand! Dr. T is a great prof and very friendly if you take the time to talk to him in his office. People think he is scary, but he is not. He gives interesting lectures, and is very clear on what he expects of you.

AbPsych; super awesome teacher, super hard. Very knowledgeable and isn't rude like everyone says. He's right, as crappy as that sounds. Read, read, read, read, read!! Know ALL Dx criteria for DSM, make sure you do the work and he'll reward you. BUT... don't try to high five him out of excitement. ><;

I had Dr. Tarnowski for Abnormal Psychology during the summer semester of 2010 and I have to say that he is one of the most knowledgable and funniest psychology teachers I ever had. Be warned, however, that you absolutely need to read the assigned readings in the textbook in order to pass the exams, even though they are not too difficult.

Best teacher I have had at FGCU! Dr.T can be intimidating at first but you will come to know that he is a nice guy who is willing to help you out if you don't understand something. He definitely knows what he is talking about. Must read the textbook if you plan on passing the class!

Dr. Tarnowski was by far the best professor I've had at FGCU! Attendance is a must in order to do well on the exam but classes are so interesting you will want to go. Extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of Psychology. I had him for Clinical Psych and Health Pysch and would take him again if he taught another class. Must-take for psych majors!

Mr. T was a great professor! He was knowledgeable and very professional at doing his job. The class was a fun and kept interesting throughout the semester. You HAVE to attend the classes and must read the book. I'll be taking him again. By the way, I thought he kinda looks like David Bowie a little bit.

BEST PSYCH TEACHER!! Dr. Tarnowski is a little intimidating but completely helpful. I had his 8am class over the summer and he made it so interesting i never got bored or tired. He also makes the course interesting by discussing his personal case studies. Loved his class <3

great teacher, gives great real world approach to concepts in health psychology. I recommend taking him. Health psychology was a boringish subject. But Dr.Tarnowski made it more enjoyable. tests are fairly easy.

Dr. Tarnowski is intelligent, funny, and helpful. Can be arrogant and intimidating, however. All his classes are interesting and you learn a lot. Have to study, no kidding there. Try to impress him early if you want his help (e.g. reference letters).

BEST. PROFESSOR. EVER. I've taken him for abnormal psych, health, and clinical. He is seriously great!! You leave his course a better student. He does everything he can to make sure you truly understand the subject. He expects a lot from you, but he will help you SO much! do whatever you can to get into his courses!

Although the subject can be a little challenging, Dr. Tarnowski does his best to make the information clear. For his exams be sure you study the notes from class as well as read the book. He is a wonderful professor that challenges you to strive.

Tarnowski is awesome! In his lectures it seems that he is talking down to you, but it's just that he really knows what he's talking about. One on one he will answer any questions you have for him. But beware that he takes NO excuses. You can't retake anything no matter what happened to you and he doesn't want to hear about your personal life.
