Totally science based psych course. Just listening to lectures were not enough. You had to read the text and use the Ace-It to get anywhere.

This guy is awesome, and the class is not boring at all.He is so funny,he's always insulting the slackers and they don't even notice.It's a survey course so there is a lot of info.Use ACE-IT,and read the text before class and you'll do fine.The most memorable prof I've had.

Comment:
Not the best psyc prof, but alright. Certainly bearable. Go to the lectures, but read the heck out of the textbook first. The slides make no sense without context, so write notes. Shop around for Psyc profs before you register for his class, there are some excellent ones.

Comment:
He is a scientist not a social-psychologist. So I recommend him for those who are interested in science. If you try you will do well. The ACE-it CD was awesome help. I still remember most of what I learned, even his cheesy stories/tangents. (I guess he's that good).

Material can be difficult to understand if you dont go to class. The ACE-IT program provided is a huge help - definately the reason i did well in the class. 75% of exam questions were taken word for word from the program that the prof designed himself - those that werent were no big surprise because they were writte in the same format

Lectures drift off-topic pretty much every class, which made it difficult to pay attention throughout the whole class. Exams are made to trick you and made the entire experience very frustrating.

Mc Intire has changed his exams as of this year. He took a year off and in that time made it change. Acid is no longer the soul basic of the exams and old exams. He is a nice guy but its a hard course. He had to bell curve our exams. Our class average was on one exam was 56. Just think about that when your choosing him as a prof.

Lecture attendence is mandatory!!! ACE-IT should be use as reference if you want to learn the material and do well in future courses. PASS is useless.

I also had him for PSYC1001 and he's been awesome at both. He's very smart, knows how to bring it down to our level and you actually come out of the class feeling like you've LEARNT something. Totally take his class - you won't regret it.

This guy is a legend, he is the only reason I managed to squeeze out an A+ in this class. You really have to go to class and get the Ace-It CD, a lot of the exam questions come from Ace-It, but you will not pass unless you go to class...some lectures don't even have corresponding textbook chapters so you'll miss a lot. Very interesting prof!

Easiest course I've taken at Carleton. Don't bother going to the lecture. Just know the ace-it and see if u can get his old tests that are floating around. He takes about 90% of his questions from ace-it and old tests.

omg- I cannot believe anyone thought he was good- this is not a science course...i hated him as a prof- he is conceited and does not care about what the students think. The worst prof i had in my entire university career. he thinks he's good which is allowed- but he's so bad in reality. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS WITH HIM- if you care about passing...

A great professor who simplifies things that would otherwise be difficult and complicated to understand. This Prof. really knows what he's talking about and creates a class that one looks forward to going to every week. 3 hours of class seems like 10 minutes with this professor.

Comment:
He is a wonderful prof, and very funny. Adds in stories about his family or research basically every class, but it makes it interesting! PSYC 1001 is harder, simply because it is the more biological section. Exams are fair, but BUY THE ACE-IT CD. You'll do much better that way!
