psych is one of those courses where you have to read ahead of class to fully understand it. Don really makes it a fun class, very knowledgeable and lots of experience. One of the best Langara has to offer.

Absolutely EPIC. Worth coming just for the stories. Tons of experience in the field. Hilarious guy. Challenging, but he offers to read over you paper before handing it in. He tells you what he likes about it and doesnt. If you fix it up after that, you should get a solid B. I would recommend him.

Comment:
One of those very difficult instructors with an over sized ego. Willing to help on his own terms. Material not presented in an organized fashion, gives guidelines but few helpful notes, lots of random board scribbles. That being said, start the project immediately, study HARD, be prepared to devote LOADS of time to the class and it can be done.

very helpful outside of class. MAKE SURE you see him for all of your assignments! You're almost guaranteed to get 100% if you do. Won 1000$ on research project which was awesome. See him for the project and follow the sample papers as a guide. Study hard for MC on exams. Short answer Qs are pretty straightforward and reflect lectures.

He's hilarious! The stories he tells to supplement his lectures are funny, and totally help you remember key points that come up in the exams. You won't have too much trouble in his class if you take good notes, but if you don't...STEER CLEAR! It's you, his stories and the text book! He gave us his home phone # tho, which was nice if you need help

He takes pride in making this course harder than it needs to be. Save your money and your GPA. Avoid him.

Yes, I know what you mean. When he sees that the class is doing reasonably well, he restructures the next midterm, reducing the portion of M.C. questions and increasing the portion of the tricky essay questions, to slaughter most of the class, and to prove that his course is indeed a difficult one.

I took this class thinking I wouldn't really find the content interesting, but with every new chapter we studied I became more and more interested. I like Don a lot; he tells great anecdotes that relate to the content and help you remember things. His tests are difficult, but at least it's all multiple choice. Just be sure to study the textbook!

The best teacher I've had so far. For intro psych you don't so much as to need the textbook, but the study guide is key. A lot of work and he's strict but he's very smart and has great stories.
