Comment:
Wish this class could have been held in person, but unable to given the pandemic. Dr. Adamopoulos was always available for feedback on assignments. Only three graded items; midterm, final paper and final presentation. First part of the semester was his recorded lectures and a lot of readings. Would highly recommend his class, great professor!

He's very passionate and enthusiastic about what he's teaching which makes his lectures interesting. He gives a study guide for the 3 exams and there are 2 group projects and 1 paper but that's your whole grade. He never mentioned the paper in class so if you don't check the syllabus you're screwed.

Such a good professor! hes so passionate about his job which makes the class really enjoyable. He is very caring and wants you to succeed. Tests are pretty easy if you study his powerpoints AND read the book. You will need the book to succeed.

He must've gotten better as he's taught more at GV, because he is one of my favorite professors. He makes you think and gives great feedback, but doesn't make it impossible or even super difficult to get an A. I just followed assignment guidelines and it was an easy A. He's also funny and personable.

Worst teacher to ever take this class! Doesn't get back with students via phone call or email (have to email multiple times for a response) and you can not understand him!

A tough grader and not many chances to get a good grade, but the professor is really interesting and funny. I love his lectures, and although some can get a little boring, he never fails to make the class laugh. I read the book, went to class, and did the study guides and I did well. Really intelligent guy - I would take this professor again!

Comment:
He's very knowledgeable, knows his subject well and is a real nice guy. But you have to do well on the exams to do well in the class and your grade based primarily based on 3 exams. The class is kind of boring and it's the type of class where you think you did really good on the exam but you didn't. Study up and do the study guide, you'll be okay.

Comment:
He is very intelligent and knowledgeable, he can talk a lot about psychology. But the class in pretty much based on 3 exams so if you failed one you won't get an A or A-. So if you not a good test taker don't take his class. But learned a lot from his lecture so still worth to take his class.

I didn't read the book, and my grade would have improved if I had. The group projects and paper aren't worth much compared to the tests. Study for the tests because that's the main portion of your grade. He knows his topic very well and diverges into stories often.

Comment:
I enjoyed the class, but the grade is basically just off of 3 exams (final not cumulative). So you really need to work in order to get a good grade. Otherwise, I thought the lectures were really interesting and he has a lot of personal stories and experiences to go off of. He's nice, but seems kinda lazy in terms of grading and helping.

He is a very passionate teacher, but his slides are very confusing. The exams are tough. The class is based off of three exams, a paper, and two group papers. So, you better study and read the book. His slides are vague, but his exam questions are very specific.

Comment:
The main grades were from tests, so if you screwed up on the tests, you basically screwed up in the class. There were a few writing assignments but the points hardly mattered to the overall grade. The professor himself was interesting, but could be confusing at times, and seemed genuinely nice.

Grade based off of 3 tests and a paper, so STUDY. His study guides aren't super helpful--mainly just an outline of the section, but none of the tests were cumulative. Very, very passionate teacher, fun to listen to, though read/elaborated mostly off slides. Puts them on blackboard after each main section. Read and study A LOT!

Class was extremely boring. Slides could have been more organized. Only 6 grades for the whole semester so don't slack off. Study for tests, they are hard.

This was one of the most boring classes I have ever taken at GV. He is extremely passionate about the subject and seems like a nice guy, but not a good professor. He just blabbed on for 50 minutes when we could have read the slides ourselves. I would avoid this class at all cost.

Too vague. Doesn't elaborate on what he wants for his papers, so he just gives half credit.

He was a good professor to me. Sometimes he could be amusing but overall was boring and I fell asleep numerous times. He gave notes that were very helpful but I would read the book as background to help. I got a B in the class even though I mostly didnt pay attention. He does try to help his students a lot tho

He is the worst teacher ever!! His tests don't even make sense. They talk about things in weird ways that confuse you. He doesn't know how to teach. All he does is ramble on and on. If you can avoid taking his class, do so. His stupid class isn't worth lowering your GPA.

Comment:
Very passionate speaking prof, definitely was entertaining to listen to but could get dry at some points. If you want to get an A, read the book! The 3 exams were the easiest college psych tests I've ever took. There's one blowoff paper too which is basically credit or no credit. Overall, very blowoff.
