Comment:
Dr. Altmann's class was one I usually dreaded. Nothing against him as a person, but as a teacher the class was very boring and hard to learn from. Presentations were made with content directly from the book, then basically just read from the slides. He does provide good examples of what he teaches on.

Comment:
Literally such a great professor! He's a great guy and always manages to slip a few jokes into lecture if you're paying attention. If you don't enjoy lecture-heavy courses this may not be for you, but I felt he kept things interesting and covered a wide range of topics. He also tells you exactly what to study for exams, which is so helpful.

Comment:
Lectures are SO boring and dry. It's still important to go to class because he gives a lot of extra info and examples. I wouldn't recommend skipping often but you may want to make a friend to share notes with. He tells you exactly what is on the exam and you should go to office hours before the exam and he will give more hints and clarify things.

Comment:
Take PSY 101 with this professor and you will have nap time twice a week. He is monotone and just shows videos. When it comes to the tests, the questions are formatted poorly and just leave you confused. The material is dry, and seems outdated. Many things could be improved on.

This prof was a di$k to me. Asked him after class about a question and told me "that is something you just just "get" in this chapter" - to which I responded, that's you job. Surprised to see all of the great commented after my experience, but who knows. Easy enough for a good grade, just a [email protected] to me I suppose.

His lectures are not straight from the book, which is nice. He also explains things in detail to help people understand. He enjoys questions and never treats people like they are stupid. He even gets stumped by questions but returns the next class with some kind of answer.

Plenty of opportunity for questions, and he'll never make you feel stupid for opening your mouth-he's always open to new points of view.

Need to read the book and go to class/take notes - but a 4.0 isn't too hard if you do these things.

Way too political for a Psychology class, his political tangents drove me nuts and were not helpful to my understanding of psychology. Boring class.

posted his lectures online, but said a lot in class that wasn't in lecture. he definitely requires you to attend lecture and take notes, but tells you what is on the exam right before it.

As far as I've found, his is the psychology lecture at state. He is easily relatable and funny (brings pictures of his cat). I would definitely take a class with him again. Super helpful, and a professor who is in it because he truly loves it.
