Jom is the man, he's an awesome professor and is always there to help students. Except his exams are very difficult, you have to know everything that he has lectured on and they make you think in a different way.

Jom is one of my favorite professors at UVM. His tests are not difficult if you put in a lot of time studying for them. His lectures are captivating and easy to follow. His good looks make you want to go to class.

Jom is an expert in the field of anxiety research. His class isn't easy, and you have to put in alot of work yourself. But he makes everything clear in the lecture and interesting. He also shares alot of quips and details of his personal life. He makes a really good study guide and is honest about how he will grade you.

Jom is a good teacher who tries in earnest to teach the material. He is always willing to clarify information outside of class. The material can be a lot to swallow but he keeps it as succinct as possible. don't buy the textbook. he is hot.

Probably the best teacher I've ever had. The class is kind of boring, and tests get more difficult as the semester goes on. He is very helpful, and just a GREAT professor!!!!

Pretty much just a bio class. Memorize a bunch of vocab for tests and thats it! Cumulative final which is pretty rough. Only qualm is he makes you memorize a lot of unimportant details for the exams, but then takes off those questions for the final. Review guides so no big deal. Barely takes attendance but when he does it counts.

Great teacher. REALLY interesting and involved in Biopsych. A lot of the subjects are pretty heavy and exams difficult, be he sets a deal that if you do best on final exam, he exchanges the score with your lowest. Really helpful and awesome class.

JOM IS THE MAN! take any class with him. Biopsych is his field and he seems to love teaching it. the exams are tough but fair if you study from the study guides he gives. he's always willing to help in anyway he can and is very accommodating. overall a great professor. probably one of the best at uvm. seriously take his class.

Jom is a great teacher and advisor. His classes were 50 mins and usually managed to be interesting and keep my focus. Additionally with ample studying (of the study guide)you should be successful on his tests.

He is very nice Professor with good sense of humor. He loves discussions in the class, but gives hard exams. This is his first year at UVM. I will recomend him.
