  • Class rating 5/5
    Best of the three lecturers, by far. No concrete notes. Lots of out of class reading that he does not even mention in class. His teaching style is awesome and i really wish he taught the whole semester. The tests are easy if you go to lecture. ...Continue reading

    He was really fun to listen to talk because he was so laid back. Really great teaching style, very interesting to listen to. ...Continue reading

    Overall interesting topics...but vague in lecture. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    HORRIBLE TEACHER. talks about himself all class. his text book is a self-help book and you are expected to memorize every detail of his pointless life. i went to class and read his book and still did bad on his test. DO NOT take him if you dont have to, unless you want to hear 100 times about how he met the dali lama. (and yes that is on the test) ...Continue reading

    Very cool guy. gives good examples and is pretty thorough with subject matter. He's also cited in every psych textbook I've seen which is pretty cool ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He is quite a character. He makes the material really interesting, and the lecture notes are online. So going to class is pretty optional. I only went because he was so darn cute. A very easy class. It's a shame he doesn't teach the whole course. ...Continue reading

    Lectures are a must if you wanna do well on exams. He is a good lecturer and presents interesting material. Only criticism: he once gave his opinion on a debated topic and talked about it as if the other view was, well, stupid. I held the same opinion as him, but I just don't like it when professors do that. I don't know, maybe others won't mind. ...Continue reading

    AMAZING Prof! Really funny and made going to lecture fun. His tests were not bad-straight from lecture notes. One of my favorite classes! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Really great teacher. Kept lectures interesting and used engaging material. As long and you go to lecture and read a decent amount you'll be fine. He's also super willing to meet and answer questions. Too bad he doesn't teach the entire semester! Really interested in what he's saying, made class enjoyable. One of the best professors I've had. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Very clear lecturer, and very fair and clearly written tests. This class isn't an easy A, but if you study, an A is definitely possible. Her tests consist of application questions, so make sure you know the information on the study guide. I thought lectures were boring, but she provides all of the information for the exams. ...Continue reading

    If you skip, you will surely miss things that are on the exam. She's hilarious without really trying. She knows exactly what she is talking about and is SO educated in her field. Easy to listen to because she is very personable. The class is a bit on the tougher side but super interesting, definitely take this class! I personally didn't find her sense of humor all that great, but she was a generally a very knowledgeable professor and good lecturer. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    A really great lecturer. Posts slides online, but GO TO LECTURE because there's material she discusses not in the slides that will be on the exam. Exams are tricky, so use the study guides she gives. I got As and Bs with a decent amount of studying, so it's not too tough. Just not an easy A. Fun class! ...Continue reading

    Great lecturer, nice/funny person, makes the material interesting. Makes an hour and 20 minute class go by pretty fast, always left feeling I had learned something that day. ...Continue reading

    Near to unintelligble. She is not very receptive to questions and will not listen if you try to question about a test score. Your best bet is to teach yourself the material based off her slides. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    She has a very thick accent and is very difficult to understand. Very difficult to follow and the course materials were not very well organized. Never before have I had a class where every time I went I had the strong urge to get up walk out. Many, many others actually did so every single class. I did not enjoy her section at all, and hope the next section of this class will be better. ...Continue reading

    She's very organized and punctual. She is extremely helpful, caring and nice, writes study guides that are like the test. Interesting topics, and is always enthusiastic to come to class! Also wants all her students to do the best, and always willing to help. I found her much better than the first professor that teaches this class. ...Continue reading

    I love this professor! She cares whether you understand or not and is always willing to help. Sometimes she does sort of spoon-feed but I like that I guess. She's very enthusiastic and uses great examples. Her section of the course seems to move a bit slower compared to the first half, but everyone's grades go up so that's a plus. Read her lecture slides and you're fine for the test! ...Continue reading

    Great class! Tests not too bad as long as you go to lectures and take notes. Really fun and interesting! Lectures are great, and as long as you attend/take notes you don't need to read the book. As long as you do semi-decent on the exams the class will be an easy A because there is a TON of in-class extra credit. ...Continue reading

    Great Lecturer very entertaining very helpful SHE IS HOT TOO you should go to class, she knows her stuff, and is so adorable!

The class is not difficult, but the other professors are not interesting. And yeah, I gave her a pepper, she's pretty cute. ...Continue reading

    This class was taught by 2 professors. Briley taught the last half. His lectures are funny and he uses a lot of studies in order to get the points across. He's really knowledgeable about what he teaches! I thought his test-writing skills could have been better, but it was his first semester. Overall, I'd recommend him. ...Continue reading
