PSYC100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This professor is very clear on his expectations. He truly wants his students to succeed and learn, which is why he makes it a COLLEGE course, a little more difficult than high school. When the class did bad on the first exam, he even offered extra credit points through pop quizzes.

PSY3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The professor was clear on all expectations and really a very good instructor. The lab requirements are what I had a problem with. Due to illness in my home I missed two labs, this automatically removed points from my grade. It went downhill from there. Avoid the class if you have kids...or maybe make them take vitamin C all semester ;)

He is very helpful and clear about what he expects from us. Very quick in responding to our emails. Class is not completely test base in order to get a good grade. Awesome teacher!

This teacher is one of the best teachers that I've ever had. Show up to class. It's not required (only lab required) but it REALLY helps out on the tests. Anyone who does not do well in the class it's because they don't show up. He is always willing to help and explains things well. If you don't show up you don't get to experience his teaching.

Great professor! Highly recommend him for this course. Funny guy and does his best to keep the lectures interesting and is always willing to help. Lectures aren't mandatory but once a week lab is. Recommend doing the exam guides and studying lecture notes.

PSY3213 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Phil is like sooooo HOT! OMG! Yeah, enough already. He has a woman. I don't know what crack one of the reviewers was smoking but the 70 points for attendance were NOT extra credit. Lots of work, be prepared. Use the online aids, the instruction of APA was very weak. This was his first time teaching this course, he'll be better next time.

AWESOME TEACHER! Always makes his classes laugh! Huge Steelers fan! If you attend every lecture and lab you will get 70 extra credit points at the end of the semester! Labs are easy, and TA's are helpful! Use the textbook website and lecture slides to study for exams and you will be fine! Easy and alot of fun! TAKE THIS CLASS WITH PHIL!!!!

I am in love with zoladz. this class is a pain in the ass but he really cares a lot about his students, and will make sure that you understand the material. oh yeah, he's really really HOT so that should definitely help you pay attention in a 3 hour monday night class. if you're failing, chances are, you haven't opened the book.

He is really good Professor. If you're complaining he is too hard, your not reading the book and sleeping in class and not doing the review. If you do the test review fully you should be able to pull at least a B on the test. He is pretty hot too.

This class blows.Lab techs suck.Know about SPSS before you bother with this class.It should be called Statistics. Labs are essentially pointless. Buy an APA guide book, SPSS student edition, and buy Psychology methods from the bookstore before wasting time here. Class web access is all over the place. Links upon links Disorganized and crammed

Mr.Zoladz is a decent lecturer;however,ineffective at defining exactly what is essential to know from the book.Leading the class in 2 directions:lecture material vs book material. Some chapters incorporate material not yet known to "intro student". Study time becomes a game of cat and mouse.

EXP4004 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took both Physio and Psych of Learning from Phil, and enjoyed both classes. He's a great instructor - he actually wants his students to learn and really understand the material. You have to write a research proposal in this class, but it wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. He is super helpful if you have any questions. Def take his class!

EXP4404 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I just took this class for the summer. I must say it was pretty interesting, but ALOT of work! You have to constantly keep up with his lectures because of all the information. His tests are based on lecture material and include essay questions which can be tricky. Attendance isn't mandatory but it SHOULD BE because of his tests.

Great teacher, humorous. Explains a lot during lectures. Tests are fair, read the material/book, it helps to read before the lecture and review afterwards. He gives a study guide which is very helpful as well. Responds to e-mails, answers any questions you may have. Expect to learn and apply it in class! I would def. rec. this guy!
