Had to end up dropping. Very wishy washy with his grading. Gives me 85+ for the first 3 papers then a 68 for the most recent one. Did not have time for that. Plus he makes his assignments due on Saturdays.

Comment:
He is incredibly specific and precise. Do not expect to put any of your own opinions, or thoughts into assignments. He expects you to follow his format for assignments to an incredible degree and is a ridiculously picky grader. He will take off points for failing to address something that you were never asked to address. Do NOT submit work late.

I believe Hymel did an amazing job with teaching stats. He gives reviews for the tests at least a week or so in advance and they are literally exactly what is on the test for each chapter. You have to go to class and pay attention though. You can't just skip and then read the book.

Dr. Hymel is seriously amazing! Don't listen to people who says he's impossible. The two most important things to remember about Dr. Hymel is that 1. the course is exactly as he explains its going to be and 2. ALL MATERIAL IS CRUCIAL. Focus on all class material as well as read the textbook (don't just skim through it!)

Dr. Hymel is a really nice guy though I found it offensive that he prays in the beginning of each class. Like most college courses, this class is pretty much self-taught. If you read the text, go to every class and do all of the homework then you'll do fine!

He is a very nice man and means well, but this class was hell for me. I rarely make a C as a final grade in any of my classes and I was ECSTATIC with a D! Don't take stats with him. Many students I took this class with, it was their second time taking the class. Very nice, and he knows what he is talking about, but he doesn't explain well at all.

Comment:
Very boring. I love school, but this class was like molasses. Teaching from 3 different texts is not beneficial to anyone. All assignments he grades he gives everyone incomplete making them redo about 6-8 assignments twice.Rambling on on one subject and then flashbacks to the old days don't help students learn either. Its time to retire him Loyola.

Very funny, kind, sweet man. His tests start off pretty easy and become progressively more difficult. The final is the hardest- a bit of a surprise attack. Makes class as interesting as possible, but sometimes spends too much time on one point. Study the chapters well; glance over the math but don't worry about memorizing it.

Dr. Hymel is hard to follow at times but if you just READ & study the chapters for his test it is real simple. He uses his own TB so its pretty much verbatim. He also is the most compassionate & dedicated man to his job. He is super sweet! He does grade the research paper pretty hard but he gives so much feedback & a lot of time to improve it

Really nice man, really cares about his students and tries to help but pretty spastic in lecture and can spend all of class on one equation. definitely need the text. don't need to learn to do math just know facts about the equations (read and study the book)

Had him for Intro to Research and Stats. The tests for intro were easy for the most part. He grades the research paper fairly hard but the tests are easy so it makes up for it. Stats/Methods was a little more difficult, but if you read the book you should be fine. ended up making an A in both classes. He also offers extra credit!

Stats was okay. Hymel really tries to help his students alot. He gives loads of hints and tries to make stats fun...but it's stats. Go to class everyday, take notes, try not to fall asleep, and read and study and you'll be fine. Be very meticulous with the SPSS assignments!you'll see what I mean.PS hymel is the ONLY stats teacher and cutest old man

I'm not sure why everyone is freaking out about Dr. Hymels class. I took him for research and statistics, and had no problems. His classes are not VERY easy, but they really aren't as hard as people are making them seem (just read the textbooks). While his class could be boring somedays, overall they weren't that bad. Plus, he is pretty funny.

I love math but hated this class. He talks in circles and uses strange examples which he sometimes makes you duplicate on tests. He's nice and, but he shouldn't be teaching. I did well and I didn't get anything out of the class. The final was aweful! It was nothing like he said & knowing the info doesnt help. Avoid him if you can.

Took research with him. Can't say I loved it but I didn't hate it. He teaches in circles and it takes forever for him to get to the point, so by the time he makes a point I already stopped paying attention. The material isn't too hard. The research proposal is a breeze if you try. He's kinda funny too...kinda.

I took Dr. Hymel for intro to research and I really enjoyed his class. Prior to the class I was pretty intimidated and very uninterested in the subject matter, but his organized and direct teaching approach made me enjoy and do very well in his class. He grades the research papers pretty hard, but his tests are beyond easy--I got 110% on two.

Hymel is a good teacher. Even though the material is not my thing, he tries to make class interesting. He tells lots of stories and has a great sense of humor. The material is a little tough, but he is helpful. The final is cumulative but not difficult. The tests are multiple choice with 2 or 3 short answers.

Comment:
Dr. Hymel is *really* funny on the slick, you guys. The material is awful, but if you're really awake in his class it's pretty easy to learn b/c this guy is hilarious (in a corny grandpa kind of way). Plus, it's required for Psyc Majors and I don't know about Lewis, but you never have to memorize formulas for Glen's class.
