    Take her! She gives the questions and answers during class, but you have to realize that's what she's doing. Go to class to get those easy clicker points. Read test the questions carefully because she words it difficult. She's super funny and nice!! You will thank me later! ...Continue reading

    She is an amazing teacher. She gives tons of extra credit. She also drops the lowest of the 5 tests and one of the lowest quizzes.

    He makes lectures enjoyable. Class isn't mandatory but it definitely helps and it is totally worth it. He makes lectures really interesting and he's really easy to follow. Fill out the Major Concept Sheets a few days before the tests and you should be good. Go to class for the extra credit!!! He usually won't tell you when his EC quizzes are. He's really good at making difficult material easily understandable with great examples and explanations. By far one of my favorite professors at the University. If you wanthave to take psych, you should take his lecture! ...Continue reading

    I've never taken a psychology course so I took a chance on this one. Gives lots of extra credit, lectures are sooo interesting, tests are just like the review materials and teaches you how to be a better student when studying!! Everyone should take him if you can! I couldn't be happier I did. He is very intelligent in his field and makes class interesting by being funny and relating to real world topics. He cares about his students grades and genuinely enjoys what he does. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Super funny and easy. Don't skip class because the weekly quizzes are lecture based. Weekly quizzes and a final are all that is graded. Opportunity for 30 points extra credit. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    I loved this class! I made a good grade, and I improved my French. Mr. Miller makes you speak in French a lot but it's not a big deal if you mess up! He also is very helpful, don't be afraid to ask him any question. He loves it when you ask questions! The tests are the same structure each time so you know what to expect. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Good professor, knows what she is talking about but the structure of the class makes it very difficult to get an A. Went to almost every class and studied for all the test and still got a B. There are certainly easier professors out there. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Lectures are quite good. Tests can be kind of hard. They are essay tests, so know your stuff. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Only way to pass this class is if you love reading the book, doing homework assignments, and quizzes every week. The homework assignments do not help you at all because she tells you not to study them so you won't get confused on the test. Overall miserable class and would not recommend for anyone to take her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    I had Professor Abu-Safe for astronomy and he was amazing. Sweetest man ever and he goes out of his way to make sure you get a good grade. Amazing GPA booster and a good science credit when your major does not require Chem or Anatomy! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    I had little interest in philosophy before taking this course, but Dr. McMullin soon changed that. Her lucid and passionate accounts of the different thinkers we covered were electrifying! She's the Platonic ideal of a good professor--that means she's perfect! Her class was one of the high points of my college career. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    She is an awesome teacher, she is so well-educated and loves what she does. She's also a lawyer so she has field experience with the government which makes her lectures and teaching that much more interesting. She is very clear and happy to answer any questions. If you attend class to get participation points and hear the lecture, you're golden. She's a wonderful teacher, and gives easy extra credit opportunities. Studying from the book isn't completely necessary, but does help. She also gives points for attendance, so make sure you go!! Overall, if I could take her class again, I would!!! ...Continue reading

    I love love love Dr. Naylor!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    If you are a Philosophy major, I still wouldn't think you would enjoy this class. He's covers the material EXTREMELY fast and is very arrogant about his knowledge. He grades tests EXTREMELY tough. If you are taking this class just because you need the hours, you better pick someone else. This class is miserable. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    I asked him a question once and his only reply was it's in the book. Makes you feel like an idiot when you ask a question or comment in class. Has multiple essay questions on each test. He spent a whole class period slamming his hands on a table asking but is this table real? Maybe its just the class but I wouldn't take this class again. ...Continue reading

    Wonderful Spanish teacher. Spanish has always been a tough subject for me, but she has made it a fun experience. She expects you to do the homework (online and in class) and participation and attendance are big factors in the grading scale. She is extremely helpful and a sweet and personable teacher. Wish she was teaching the next level of Spanish! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    A lot of reading. Almost no test information comes from her lectures. She is not helpful and not a nice person. She literally said to my class, I don't care if you pass. I get paid either way. Gave me a bad first impression of UofA professors. Avoid her there are plenty of other political science professors. ...Continue reading

    Tried to take his class over summer but had to drop. I am an A student and failed his quizzes and tests. Very hard teacher! Spoke totally in Spanish and did not understand 90% of the lectures. Took Elementary I and II at NWACC and felt like I had never learned any Spanish after being in his class. Horrible amounts of homework and quizzes everyday. ...Continue reading

    Has a total of 3 tests and one paper, but for each test you are tested over 3 different books so you have a lot of reading to do for this class.

She is a really nice teacher and tries her best to make those boring topic fun. ...Continue reading

    He is a really really cool guy, you can tell he loves what he does and as a student it's nice to have a teacher with a little enthusiasm about what they do. He is helpful and always willing to clear things up that aren't crystal clear. It's a pretty easy A as long as you show up, listen, read every now and then and try to participate a little. ...Continue reading

    Super easy class. No Homework. Just three tests that he gives you the exact answers that are on it. Very good professor that brings personal experience in the picture. Lets you out early everyday. At least 10 minutes everyday. Do not need textbook. I got an A+ and almost a 100 on every test. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    This class was beyond me. I never skipped one class, but never understood what he was saying because he tries to sound as sophisticated as possible all the time. The tests are hard and he grades your thoughts, or what he call journals. Plus, he's a student. Do a different professor. He also emails the chapters the night before you need to read it. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Jong is a pretty good teacher. Pay attention to problems worked in class because they are likely to show up again. GO TO DRILL!!! There are two drills that are both optional.
