I have learnt more in this class than any other class I have ever taken at Marshall! He teaches in a way that makes all of the concepts relatable to things in the real world! Although he is kinda crazy/OCD/sometimes arrogant, he is one of the best professors at Marshall!

I found this class to be very interesting. I greatly enjoyed his stories, they made learning the concepts easier. This class was a lot of work and I learned a lot of information that will me in teaching. I think Dr. Sottile is very helpful and he was willing to go the extra mile. In the end, he is one of the best professors at Marshall.

Comment:
I hated him as a professor. It is an easy class because he tells you what information will be on the test in jeopardy. However, there are a lot of out of class group assignments. I just didn't like his arrogant personality and his "lectures" consist of his personal stories so you don't learn anything in the class. He is annoying.

He is a very funny professor and very intelligent, he just isn't very understand of student situations when it comes to missing class, etc. Even if it's just once.

He is the best professor at Marshall. Anyone who didnt get an A in his class was just being lazy. He gave a whole letter grade in extra credit, played jeopardy games that are basically the test, and he gave easy activities. He loves what he does. TAKE HIM!

Great Professor! Very passionate about the subject and tells great stories to illustrate points. Very particular-so make sure you do everything exactly as he says, but other than that he is very nice and makes it fun.

He is one of the greatest professors at Marshall. I absolutely loved his class. The tests are directly from the jeopardy game, so take good notes. He's super OCD, to the point that it's funny. His stories are hilarious! Don't let the first day scare you!

His class is easy but the grading scale makes it kinda hard to get an A. I didn't like him. He's not very helpful and he seems to be full of himself. I wouldn't take him.

Dr J rocks! I learned way more than I thought I would. He kind of reminds me of a cross between Pee Wee Herman, Gilligan, Nipsey Russell and Brad Pitt.

This class is soooo easy. You are a little nervous the first day bc of the grading scale. however, u do almost everything in groups, he gives extra credit ALL THE TIME and he gives you every single question that is going to be on the test. your lectures consist of stories from his psychology clients! take him!!

What are you all smoking? This is THE worst teacher I have EVER had in my life! I received a C in his class and I have NEVER had a C in my life from elementary school until now. He almost made me drop out of education because of his mind games and stressful class. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR if you can help it. SUCK UP if you do have to have him.

Makes you feel really anxious in class. Tests are ridiculous. If you like being stressed and having to get a 93.9 to receive an A take his class. Mostly group work. He'll put you in a group with people you will not get alongwith to ensure you will stressed. Plays mind games in class. Does exactly what he tells you not to do in a classroom.

If Sottile is teaching take his class. I learned more and had the best times in his classes. Ask him about when he was a medic in Vietnam, crazy stories!!!
