Comment:
VERY BORING AND MONOTONED. Only grades are objective list and test. The lectures are long and you HAVE to pay close attention to what's being said in order to fill out the questions. The test are impossible as the questions are very confusing, you would think being allowed to use your objective list would be helpful... Well think again.

Hes a really entertaining professor and grades fairly. You will pass as long as you read and answer the objective questions.

VERY LONG BORING online lectures. Only grades are tests and objective lists. There are only four tests that makeup 90% of your grade, and the objective lists are long study guides where you have to pay VERY close attention to the voice threads to fill out.

I love Milliken so much!!!! The class is hard but if you're willing to put in the time and effort (I did because I found it super interesting) he will like you. He does have slight favorites but show him you care and you'll be one of them! Also, he is HILARIOUS and gives many personal anecdotes.

Posts lectures on OAKS, but they make no sense unless you go to class. Tests are off the study guides, but some of the questions are not covered in the lecture, only covered in class verbally. He gets side tracked very easily and personally very difficult for me to learn off the way he speaks

super fun, very easy, Milliken is amazing, quite a few papers but he literally gives you a list of potential test questions so you're basically guaranteed to get an a

Dr. Milliken was great! He's engaging during lecture and really tries to help students memorize the information. Obviously, the material is detailed, but that's to be expected for the subject matter. There's a mandatory study guide for every test, but doing them is a good way to study the info. Work hard, study often, and the class isn't bad.

Comment:
I took Millikens behaviorial neuroscience science class this past semester. Its pretty important to study a lot, as his tests are very difficult and a lot of the material is based on memorization. Overall, hes a funny guy and clearly has a lot of passion for the subject, which I personally believed made the lectures very enjoyable.

Dr. Milliken is a great guy, but his tests are extremely difficult. He gives you a study guide for the test that counts as homework points, but you have to study every question in extreme detail to even consider getting a test question correct. Be prepared to study pages worth of notes.

Comment:
Very very very difficult professor. Tests are based off of discussion questions that you have to answer and hand in for homework right before taking the exam. Some questions are essays and worth 20+ points, some are worth 3. Very time consuming and impossible to memorize all of them. Unable to prioritize which questions you think he is going to ask

Dr. Milliken is awesome! He so passionate about this class and he makes it interesting. The only downfall is that you really have to study. There's 3 tests and the final is worth 40% of your finals grade. But he gives you discussion questions for each test that you do for a grade and he pulls his test questions from the discussion questions.

Comment:
So Milliken is a great guy and all and his lectures are entertaining but the tests are impossible. You have to be able to memorize pages on pages of essay question answers before each test. I thought that having the test questions would guarantee a good grade but I was very wrong. Take a different class as this one is extremely hard.

Dr. Milliken is a great professor. His tests are literally copy and paste questions from objective lists. As long as you complete the objectives, you will do fine! He offers a ton of extra credit and never fails to provide a super entertaining lecture.

this class has an inordinate amount of work, even for an online class. The tests are lengthy essays and doesn't give any feedback on them other than the grade itself, so you don't know where you went wrong.

This teacher is my absolute favorite at cofc. I've had two classes with him now, and he is really good at his job-- but you have to like neuroscience to do well, because it's kind of his thing. Milliken cares about his students and has a system that requires a lot of work, but it ends up actually forcing you to study and do well.

He is an entertaining professor and loves what he teaches. But, his class is incredibly hard. The objectives were 15 pages of handwritten answers and the tests are based off of them, but it is impossible to memorize every little detail. I would study 10+ hours for every test and never made above a C. I did well on the final but studied 30hrs total.

Dr. Milliken is great and really knows what he is talking about. He's also really funny! It makes the lectures more interesting considering the material is pretty difficult. Very organized and straightforward which made things easier. Im taking again for another class next semester. I recommend taking him!! Surprised he has any bad reviews at all

This guy rocks. He makes class fun which makes you pay attention. Takes attendance sometimes but you should definitely go to all classes, that's how you'll get a good grade. He's extremely organized and straightforward. Test questions are given to you before hand, papers are 2-3 page research article reviews. This class is easy if you do the work.

Comment:
I dreaded going to this class. For the tests, you had to turn in pages and pages of essay questions in order to take the test, only to have to basically regurgitate these in the exam. If you have a lot of time to write page long essays and are able to memorize them word for word, take him, if not, steer clear!
