NEUR461 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He offered little guidance in terms of assignments. The class never got any feedback on assignments. Participation in class was required, but often there was little to discuss. This would lead to him asking the class for basic definitions.

He is realy nice but his lectures are pretty boring and a little hard to follow. He offers extra credit and there's a paper plus 3 exams. You have to read the book to really understand.

PSY317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are pretty boring. He's a nice enough guy, but I wouldn't recommend him. If you study the book and take notes on it, you'll do fine. He's just a so-so teacher.

I would not be surprised if he wrote some of the previous comments himself...he is rude..does not have common sense...and is very selfish...

He's cute and interesting. What more can you ask for in a professor? The class is cake is you read the book and attend lecture. Highly recommended.

Dr. Thompson was very nice, very helpful and very organized. Maybe a little nervous for his 1st semester here? Likes it when people interact in class! Ask questions!! Attendance is checked every class so show up - it will help if you didn't do as well as you wanted to on a test. Aussie accent does not make him difficult to understand.

Teacher never goes over tests and assumes you know the right answers to questions you got wrong on exams..who cares if he is attractive or not? He needs to put his students first. Take another teacher if you can.

True he is a little misleading with his grades b/c he doesnt write the number on there but he is a pretty chill guy and its not his fault that the material is dry. Plus, he is extremely attractive and has an Australian accent which in the end....that's all that really matters.
