What a gem. Dr. Day is by far one of my fav profs. Took it as an elective and though it was not easy, it was a class that made you think. You can't just go to lecture and think you'll do well on the tests. Listen to the podcasts again and make detailed notes, read chapters which may seem like a lot but you can do it. Otherwise not an easy B or A.

Tests can be heavy, but if you've studied the material appropriately you'll do very well. An amazing lecturer and talks with passion. Don't get fooled by the wording!

Comment:
As a professor, he seems passionate about what he teaches and he explains the content very well. But when it comes to his tests? Not that great. Most of his tests are based on the textbook, and you gotta memorize more than you should have to if you want a decent mark. Try to get test banks if you can, you'll fail w/out them. His tests are hard :/

Dr Day is a very good prof and clearly cares about the content he teaches but can be very tricky. The format of the course is a classic 2 midterms, 1 exam, all multiple choice with many all of the above and none of the above within the questions. This course takes dedication and you can do well if you give it attention.

Tests are all none of the above and all of the above, stats, and specific textbook info. He's not clear about what you need to know either.

Such an awesome guy, his lectures are super enjoyable and he explains things really well. His tests are impossible if you don't have the test banks, but other than that I really enjoyed his course.

Dr. Day is by far my favourite prof at McMaster. It is evident that he knows what he is teaching, and is passionate about it. The way he delivers lecture content makes you want to attend his lectures. He also makes his lecture materials as accessible as possible (podcasts, audio recordings, and power-points are all made available on avenue).

Dr. Day is a fantastic prof, he's insanely charismatic & great to listen to. His class come with a podcast too. Only complaint is his tests are SO hard. Every question has all of the above & none of the above. idk if i would take his class bc i know it will cost me a good grade. He usually has practice quizzes online but they didnt work for my sem

his lectures are AMAZING--i made sure to never miss any even tho they were podcasted. his testing is v specific about details from lecture, but hes clear about what he wants you to know. only real complaint is that his textbook questions are too specific for how much reading we have to do, but there werent many TB qs so i didnt mind that much!

I did very poorly in the course, but he is an AMAZING lecturer. However, your mark is based on 3 tests, all multiple choice, and his questions are incredibly difficult. You are expected to remember pretty much every little detail in the course content. About 18 % of students failed the final exam, average in the low 60s.

Dr Day is THE BEST! If you enjoy psych and are looking to actually learn / do not mind putting in some work in order to achieve a good grade then you need to take a course with him! he is so knowledgeable, and makes all material accessible / fair game. I wouldn't say it is EASY to get a good grade in his class, but you can if you put in effort!

Fun lectures, but the grading is pretty rough. If I could go back, I probably wouldn't pick his course for an elective. So much textbook work too
