Web class taken over both summer sessions. Grade based on four exams only. It didn't matter how hard I studied I still did poorly,the exams were difficult. This class did not use oncourse so you couldn't contact others taking the class.

I don't think that the material was really difficult, but he was not entirely clear in presenting it. Additionally, the exams are given in the testing center (online) which doesn't suit some people's tastes. They were sorta difficult/confusing at some points. Would suggest an alternative class, …more if you have a choice. less

Great Professor. AWESOME stories. Read the book and you'll do fine. Tests are decently hard, but he gives you a practice test from which he ususally pulls a few questions and there is generally a couple point curve after the tests close. You can learn a good amount from this guy.

I thought it would be an interesting class but he made it so boring. The tests were okay sometimes confusing. He was pretty fair though.

Amazing teacher, very interesting stories and ideas. Motivates well, but I found the book used quite confusing and roundabout. Tests seemed very difficult to ace without exhaustive knowledge. Perhaps it's just one of those things to keep you focused and studying hard. So knowledgeable about …more subject. Has a nice smile. less

I went into this class with a lot of knowledge already in abnormal psych. I wanted to do it with honors credit but he discouraged me from doing it that way. I found him to be stuffy and preoccupied with his research instead of teaching. One of those teachers that you can tell that his teaching is …more required instead of him wanting to do it. less

I thought this class would be fun and interesting to take...but its not when you have him as a professor. period. he doesnt tell you when/what to read, never tells you when things are due or when quizzes are. he just leaves you out there wondering. it sucks.

I took the online version of the class, and I would highly recommend that. I'm surprised to see the negative comments, but I only listened to recorded lectures, so maybe he only uses the good ones! I found this class easy to stay on top of, but you do have to learn the material in the lectures …more and chapters. Lectures were clear and interesting. less

Not an understanding professor at all. I had problems with the tests, and he wanted to meet to discuss the grades. I was clueless as to what to do, and he had asked if I read the material. Of course I read the material, but then he proceeded to allude to the fact that I was just plain dumb and an …more idiot for taking a 300 level course as a sophomore. less
