Professor Reviews in PSY 211


  • Class rating 5/5
    Shawna is the best psychology teacher you can take. She breaks all the information necessary for exams down, making everything straight forward. Some book reading is required for the exams as well, but nothing that one hour of extra time won't take care of. Also, she's well organized. Nicest professor ever!!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    What an excellant professor! she takes FOREVER to cover one topic. tests are easy if can you can stand to sit through class. group paper is easy. she is a very nice lady and even has a good sense of humor. but this class overelaborates on Learning and is BORING. ...Continue reading

    omg this class is so easy but so boring. She's really cool and down to earth. She wants everyone to do well and gives you study guides for the test that cover everything. Definitely take her for PSY 211. ...Continue reading

    She's a great teacher. (I know why you are reading this rating, because you are a Psych student and ur searching for a easy professor because u need a high gpa to get into grad school&#63) HA! im so smart, well take this professor because shes an EASSY A, and she teaches u TONS of knowledge too that you can actually use in the future! ...Continue reading

    class was challenging, but she gave notes for lectures and study guides for exams on blackboard, one group presentation and paper, plus daily 3 pt quizes from the previous day's lecture where one is just for putting your name on the paper (at times she could be made to give the answers if asked in the right way) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Go to class with blackboard notes it will save you lots of time and paper. Pretty easy overall, I was a little disappointed with the lack of knowledge she had when it came to answering questions, but otherwise she is nice and funny. A good lower div. psych teacher for sure. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This class was only offered at 8am, but you aren't missing anything besides 1 point of extra credit if you dont go to class. Good at providing examples and excellent at answering questions. Unfortunately, the material and concepts were too boring to keep me awake. He provides study guides before exams, and exams are pretty easy, just defining terms and when they apply. No homework, independent reading. There are 3 exams, and one optional final that he uses to replace an exam you bombed. Office hours are limited. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    The class is interesting, but professor Tatum can be a bit bland, so lectures seem to go on forever. He would put me to sleep. He gives you practice questions which are helpful but the test is hard b/c the questions are badly written. The book isn't necessary just a supplement. You will get a B in the class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    He posts all lectures online along with practice questions for each section. Very organized lectures but they are boring. Gives about half of the questions for the test during lecture. No need to study much and you should do very well ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    His class is based of 3 exams and and optional cumulative final so there's really no room for error. at the end of the texts is the full class notes, make flashcards ans memorize those, thats it. i got an A haha If you can sit through the lectures and stay awake, you will get an easy A. Use his study guide book. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Tatum is really nice, but a little dry. unlike most professors, his jokes are actually funny. you dont really need the book but its always better to have it. theres 3 tests and he gives a study guide for all 3 in the begg of the semester. he also randomly gives out sample questions that are usually on the tests. the class is pretty kool. TAKE HIM !! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    He's a good teacher but not enough to motivate you to go to an 8am class. being that it was a 8am class i think he tried his best to keep us awake! the class has a reader so all the lectures are there for you if you miss class. the reader also has all the study guides which are EXTREMELY helpful! there is 3 non cumulative tests and an OPTIONAL final Easy A if you go to class!!!! I recommend you take him...he is very nice and helpful!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Lecture recordings and powerpoints are all online. Well he also gives u the answers to about 15 test questions before u take the test! Your grade depends on 3 test, don't take him if u don't do good on multiple choice test. Overall his an easy!!!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    This class is really hard to pay attention. I signed up for this class at 8 am (I had to wake up at 6 to catch the bus there). I ended up not going since attendance is optional. I got a C+. I studied the book really intensively but it's easy to pass without going to class. He just reads notes. I expected the class to be more interesting. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Interesting class, but hard to pay attention during this 8 AM lecture. Had a lot of different things to help learn material.because it was a hybrid,he did mention that it was going to be semi independent learning :) the sample q's are real test questions, so make sure to look at them!! he has his jokes, but at 8am everyone is too out of it to notice he's funny. Would definitely take again :D Most test q's come from practce quizes he has between lecture slides. Go to class to record the q&a's because they will be identical to the exam. Tatum tried his best to make things interesting but his humor is lame and the subject matter is boring. Class becomes unbearable a certain points but you can always sleep thru it ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He tried making jokes and showed cartoons to make the lectures more interesting. Bring a pillow and make sure to pick up the study guide at the beginning of each class. Good teacher, but don't take a 2 hour and 40 minute class with him. You won't last! ...Continue reading

    You learn a ton in this class. All notes all printed for you. Go to class to get the practice quizzes, all the questions are on the tests. 3 tests, not tricky. He's pretty boring, tries to be funny. Cool guy, so have fun with his humor. Sample questions really helped, gave me an idea on how he tests. I went to class everyday, read all the assigned readings, studied hard only to get a B-. Would have aced the first test (only missed 3 multiple choice) but thought he put exact T/F questions so missed 7 & a total of 10 which is a B-. 50 quests. Some Tricky ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    He really is a nice guy. If you ever have a question he'll take all the time you need to make sure you understand it. He dedicates a whole class period to a review the day before the test. Go to class and write down the sample questions he gives because they'll show up word for word on the test. No need for the book. ...Continue reading

    GREAT professor !! Do them! A lot of them are exactly the same on the tests or very similar. There's 3 exams and a final that is cumulative. Optional final. If you take the final, he drops your lowest test out of the 4. This class was hard , so really put in a lot of time and study. ...Continue reading

    This teacher is the nicest, most caring teacher ever. You can buy his lectures, from which 95% of questions are from. 3 exams multiple choice, T/F. No paper. Gives practice question during class, which are from the test, despite what he says. Easy class but painfully boring, what can you really expect though. I almost never went to class since he posts the lectures online. I also read his book, which is a MUST HAVE. If you view his lectures and read his book in a timely manner, you're good for exams. ...Continue reading

    I loved this prof. He is very helpful, explains anything you don't understand, and loves his students. Knows subject very well.

I would recommend him to anyone. ...Continue reading

    He is such a nice teacher and tries hard to make the material relevant. And you should buy it, it will help. I did not read the book for this class. Just study the notebook and take some notes in class and you should be fine. Just remember to get the test questions that he gives out during clas it will HELP you a lot He is very organized but redundant. Instead I kept up with the readings and got a B. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Very nice teacher. He is a little dry and boring so sitting in class and trying to stay awake at 8am is very difficult. Your final grade is based off 3 exams. The exams are a little difficult to understand. You can not just memorize material but actually be able to make the connections. i.e. abstract ideas Hes pretty dry and his jokes are the worst. There is no benefit or incentive to go to class as he records all of his lectures too and posts them online. Sleep in and watch the weekly lecture at your leisure, you aren't missing anything if you dont go to class. ...Continue reading

    Nice guy but not very interesting. but he is very helpful and sincere. very open and willing to help out his students. the class is easy so long as you go to most of the classes. the lec notes are pretty much all the info for the test.

Textbook is exactly like his lectures since he wrote the book ha ...Continue reading

    easy class, he really knows his stuff, not necessary to purchase textbook, he does give sample &#63's which help on the exams, watch videos but aren't tested on, everything is also on blkboard for you, only hard part was that it was a 8am class but i always went late Grades composed of 3 tests (1/2 lecture, 1/2 book. A very nice man, knowledgable, and kind of funny, too! He gives test questions at the end of each section- write them doen and study them and you'll do good on tests. He also has a sense of humor which helps at 8am. 3 tests, but if you study everything on the study guide you'll do fine. An easy class ...Continue reading

    how can anyone possibly think this class is difficult! The lecture is at 8 AM, but all of them are prerecorded online so you don't need to go to class, but you definitely need to listen to the lecture. Your grade is based off of only three midterms and an optional cumulative final to replace your worst grade. Not a bad class at all, but definitely not my favorite ...Continue reading

    Tatum class was pretty boring but his lectures come directly from notebook he recommendes you to buy. Although pretty easy. I never went to class & got a B He tries hard to make class fun, and he can say some funny things sometimes. Buy the book for sure, everything you'll need to know is in it. Do the readings too and you'll be good. Missing a class here and there won't hurt you at all though. ...Continue reading

    I really liked this professor...tests are very easy...all of the study questions will be on the test...and the last test had like 30 of the study questions (which he will give you the answers to)!!! I went to class almost everyday, typed up outlines for each test which he has the skeleton for each in his course packet (3 tests determine your grade), studied hard and got a solid A. If you don't get at least a B in this class, you aren't trying hard enough. Only 3 tests, no homework, no attendance. Study lecture handouts for tests and you'll do fine. You'll want to poke your eyes out if you go to class, its so long and boring. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    An incredibly easy class. I had a messed up schedule, so I rarely attended his 8AM lecture. Never bought the book, but it might've been helpful. Attend his lectures for the sample test questions because they help A LOT. I was lucky that my classmates were nice enough to email sample test questions to everyone. Subject is really boring, and moderately hard He gives you fill-in-the-blank slides, so you will have everything that you need for the test. The study guides cover exactly what is on the tests, so there are no surprises. You don't need to book to do well in this class. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Highly recommend for this course. &#63 ALL the questions on the tests were EXACTLY the same as the samples during lectures. all you have to do is study the sample questions. DUH! he gives you the answers! Lectures can be a bit dry early in the morning, but he has a cute sense of humor and is very knowledgable. Everything in his lecture is in the course documents you buy at the bookstore. Study this, the vocab words in the book, and put everything into your own words. If you go to lecture, get sample q's. ...Continue reading

    Super nice prof. Don't need the text book, just buy the handout packet. Don't really have to go to class as long as you have a friends that can get the test questions for you. NOT a hard class.

I definitely recommend him! ...Continue reading

    The class is easy b/c all you have to do is go to class and 3 tests but he is so BORING. Tests are 3 easy multiple choice and T/F tests that make up your entire grade. Provides a lot of explanations in class. Like the others said though, it's pretty boring. Attendance is not necessary if you dedicate time into learning the material on your own time. Watch the lectures online and read the book, DEFINITELY do the sample question because they are on the tests! careful though,wording might vary on the test ...Continue reading

    easy class, he really knows his stuff, not necessary to purchase textbook, he does give sample &#63's which help on the exams, watch videos but aren't tested on, everything is also on blkboard for you, only hard part was that it was a 8am class but i always went late Grades composed of 3 tests (1/2 lecture, 1/2 book. A very nice man, knowledgable, and kind of funny, too! He gives test questions at the end of each section- write them doen and study them and you'll do good on tests. He also has a sense of humor which helps at 8am. 3 tests, but if you study everything on the study guide you'll do fine. An easy class ...Continue reading

    how can anyone possibly think this class is difficult! The lecture is at 8 AM, but all of them are prerecorded online so you don't need to go to class, but you definitely need to listen to the lecture. Your grade is based off of only three midterms and an optional cumulative final to replace your worst grade. Not a bad class at all, but definitely not my favorite ...Continue reading

    Tatum class was pretty boring but his lectures come directly from notebook he recommendes you to buy. Although pretty easy. I never went to class & got a B He tries hard to make class fun, and he can say some funny things sometimes. Buy the book for sure, everything you'll need to know is in it. Do the readings too and you'll be good. Missing a class here and there won't hurt you at all though. ...Continue reading

    I really liked this professor...tests are very easy...all of the study questions will be on the test...and the last test had like 30 of the study questions (which he will give you the answers to)!!! I went to class almost everyday, typed up outlines for each test which he has the skeleton for each in his course packet (3 tests determine your grade), studied hard and got a solid A. If you don't get at least a B in this class, you aren't trying hard enough. Only 3 tests, no homework, no attendance. Study lecture handouts for tests and you'll do fine. You'll want to poke your eyes out if you go to class, its so long and boring. ...Continue reading

    An incredibly easy class. I had a messed up schedule, so I rarely attended his 8AM lecture. Never bought the book, but it might've been helpful. Attend his lectures for the sample test questions because they help A LOT. I was lucky that my classmates were nice enough to email sample test questions to everyone. Subject is really boring, and moderately hard He gives you fill-in-the-blank slides, so you will have everything that you need for the test. The study guides cover exactly what is on the tests, so there are no surprises. You don't need to book to do well in this class. ...Continue reading

    Highly recommend for this course. &#63 ALL the questions on the tests were EXACTLY the same as the samples during lectures. all you have to do is study the sample questions. DUH! he gives you the answers! Lectures can be a bit dry early in the morning, but he has a cute sense of humor and is very knowledgable. Everything in his lecture is in the course documents you buy at the bookstore. Study this, the vocab words in the book, and put everything into your own words. If you go to lecture, get sample q's. ...Continue reading

    Super nice prof. Don't need the text book, just buy the handout packet. Don't really have to go to class as long as you have a friends that can get the test questions for you. NOT a hard class. Plus he's super nice. For the final he gave us 31 of the 50 questions. If you still got a C or D in the class you're pathetic. ...Continue reading

    Very Easy! The class was pretty much straightforward. He would sometimes curve the grades (not on all the tests though). 3 exam scores out of 4 for your final grade. I walked out with an A- by completing the study guides and studying the night before. I never once saw him frustrated or stressed with anyone, and if you go talk to him, he's super sweet. I definitely recommend him! ...Continue reading

    The class is easy b/c all you have to do is go to class and 3 tests but he is so BORING. Tests are 3 easy multiple choice and T/F tests that make up your entire grade. Provides a lot of explanations in class. Like the others said though, it's pretty boring. Attendance is not necessary if you dedicate time into learning the material on your own time. Watch the lectures online and read the book, DEFINITELY do the sample question because they are on the tests! careful though,wording might vary on the test ...Continue reading
