Psy 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She knows her stuff well. Very fun and bubbly professor. 4 quizes, 1 essay, 1 final and must do 3 hours of volunteer work (for psy research) She is nice, but not that approachable. OVERALL I WOULD RECOMMEND HER. :)

PSY 362 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is excellent at teaching, but I have mixed feelings about my experience in the class. She is very smart and entertaining, but it's true, she's disorganized (gave me the wrong grade on my paper) and also can have an attitude when calling her out on mistakes. Take her, but keep track of your grades and watch out for her alpha female attitude!

DONT TAKE HER! shes a horrible professor, you cant rely on her, she replies to emails a day later IF THAT! shes rude and unconsiderate. She posts everything on moddle LAST MINUTE if you miss one day of class you're totally lost because shes always making last minute changes because she cant keep up with her own syllabus.

psy 310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you're looking for an easy A, TAKE GARCIA. If you're looking to be inspired, or to further you knowledge of psychology, look else where. She's nice, but unorganized. She won't respond to emails. Is only in her office hours some of the time. Always makes excuses for missing class. Something always comes up, excuses excuses excuses. Easy A though.

Garcia's class was EASY. 3 quizzes (30 ?s), and 1 final (60 ?s), 2 projects (25 pts). She allowed us to work in groups for one of the projects, we choose the project we want from a list. She posts powerpoint slides on moodle, so missing class isn't a biggie. Provided several extra credits! She's an easy grader! Textbook was $5 on amazon!

THIS PROFESSOR HAD LOST ONE OF MY EXAM SCORE. IT WAS HER FAULT. SHE GAVE ME A ZERO FOR THAT EXAM SCORE.HOW RIDICULOUS! WHEN I ASKED HER WHY I RECEIVED A ZERO, THEN SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE LOST IT. SHE ASKED ME HOW MUCH I GOT. I COULD HAVE LIED TO HER, BUT I TOLD HER HOW MUCH I BECAUSE I AM AN HONEST PERSON

Great professor. Very energetic and keeps the class awake especially at 8am. One on one with student is horrible.. does not respond to emails & comes off a bit rude. Other than that.. her tests are okay just look over powerpoint slides and attend all class meetings

She's almost never punctual but makes up for it by giving extra credit. Her tests are just a tad hard, just make sure to go over the slides. You're better off taking your laptop because she's not punctual about posting them up in time for you to print. She can be super chill or down right mean. It boils down to doing your assignments and studying.

Fairly easy, 3 quizes, 2pg paper, 1 exam, mostly from slides. Not great with one-on-one, as mentioned from the previous comment. Overall cool class. Pay attention and youll pass. Dont expect office hrs or fast replys to your emails..shes bad with that. Easiness is 4 but professor-to-student relationship is 2.

Answered everyone's questions in class, but was not very friendly one on one. Class was very clear and her test questions came directly from her lecture slides.

Wow! This teacher takes the cake. She doesn't deserve the Title of professor. She is always late, and makes excuses for everything. Yet she expects you to perfect. uses the publisher's power point slides... and tests..can she be any lazier..? good thing its an easy class!

I took this class in spring. Super easy. She had her midterm and final all on WebCT (multiple choices) but she'll ask you to come on the day of finals to finish the essay portion. Will be 3 papers about 3-4 pages each and she's an easy grader on them if you have your references cited correctly. she even offer a lot of learning/extra credits too.
