Abnormal Psyc. is the class. This instructor is an okay instructor. Though I have to say that reading the text book is much better than her lectures. Lectures are fast paced, she doesn't take a whole lot of time to explain everything clearly.

I loved my psychopathology class. The lectures are easy and involved. She posts the power points online and she lets you do test corrections. She's also super fun to talk to outside of class and will even read your essays for the exams before the test and tell you if you got it or not.

Worst psychology professor at App. Puts trick questions on exams to purposely try to trip you up. Her power points are overwhelming as she puts paragraphs instead of bullet points and expects you to memorize every single word off of them for the test. She doesn't care if you actually understand the …more material, just if you can remember a useless stat. less

She goes through the lectures to fast and her powerpoints come directly from the textbook. She just changes a few words too "simplify" the notes. Reading the textbook will help you learn more. Moves at a fast pace and if you didn't get the notes oh well.. Very sweet person but not the best psych …more professor. Wouldn't take again. less

Worst. Teacher. Ever. She doesn't teach, rather she rips tables from the textbook and uses them as Power Points. Her tests are not related to her lectures, instead they are made up of random information from the textbook. If you can memorize the chapters good luck. She lets you redo the tests, but …more you are not told what you missed so ... yeah no. less

Lectures have a lot of material and is fast paced. Most of the test material is from the lectures. Reading the textbook helps to better understand the material and do well on the tests. She is laid back and a good lecturer.

This. Woman. She's very lecture heavy, with power point slides filled with paragraphs, and her lectures will drive you insane. I know they did for me, she says "um" CONSTANTLY. (I've tallied, ex. 56 minute lecture with 413 um's, 46 minute lecture with 469 um's). Personally, I'm doing well …more but only because I put in time outside of class to study. less

Through the course, you have to read the book and almost memorize it to be able to make a C on a test. She believes that a 70 average on a test is a great grade and won't curve but does allow test correction for 1/3 credit. Reads straight off of powerpoints and it is pointless to attend because you …more must read the book to understand. DO NOT TAKE! less

Avoid at all costs. What could have been an interesting class became stressful. Her grading policy is all over the place, final is a group presentation with no clear criteria. She considers 70% a good grade. Allows corrections for 1/3 credit, but it's very hard to make a good grade when the test is …more based on the book, not the lectures. less

Professor Belhumeur is nice but I would not take her classes again or recommend her. Her lectures are very fast paced and I couldn't write my notes fast enough. When I had issues with my group members concerning our group project she didn't care to help and had a very callous attitude. She offers …more re-takes on the exams which is nice. less
