Comment:
This class definitely should be at least a 400 level. There is absolutely NO reason to buy the book because it is pure memorization of his notes and vocab. I can not believe how much memorization I needed to do to pass this class. His vocab quizzes and tests took me forever to study for. If you're not good at memorization do NOT take this class.

Comment:
I know its a level 300 class, but the work and time that he expects from you is graduate level. When the teaching assistant says that it was their hardest and worst class then you know something is wrong. The level of memorization needed is outrageous. He is a nice guy, but avoid his class at all costs. You have been warned.

Comment:
He assigns WAY too much reading where you have to read more than 150 pages per week. He expects you to know EVERYTHING in the readings, asks very detailed essay questions. Each of his exams cover 500-600 pages of material. He is very hard to follow, speaks so softly and never uses power-point or any other visual aids. A nice guy but should retire.

Lots of memorizing for tests. Attendance is not required, but he will answer the test essay questions so missing class hurts in the end. Funny or trys to be. Uses Sona System. Must buy course packet with notes and blue books for tests.

This is a challenging class but Dr. Monahan is GREAT! He is very helpful if you have any questions. You don't really have to go to his lectures on Mon/Wed, but there is a quiz every Friday. To get an A: set aside about 4 hours per week to read the entire chapter and do the work problems. I would take another class with him for sure!

He is an excellent professor. Very clear, gives many examples, and is always willing to help students. He also gives out study guides in advance, and answers the discussion questions ahead of time. However, this class requires a LOT of memorization. But, if you take the time to memorize the essays and vocab, you're going to do fine.

Dr. Monahan is a very helpful professor. He's always willing to make sure you understand the material. Be warned: He DOES NOT make up the exams himself! His TA's make up the weekly exams weeks ahead of time, so they put useless information on the exams. There is very little/no math done in this class. Not at all what Psych Stats should be.

Sets the class up in a manner where things are somewhat vague. Definitely a helpful prof, but grades really tough on the papers. Lots of work too.

There's alot of writing and reading in this class, but no exams. He coaches the class through all the assignments and there are a ton of points to be earned throughout the semester. You pretty much have to try in order to do poorly. He's probably the best prof to take 385 with.

There was alot of research and writing involved in this class. But, there is also alot of points available and it is pretty difficult to fail. Make sure you show up for every class!! Don't get behind in your work!!

there is a lot of busy work, but his outlines are helpful for his three experiments he makes you do, there are a lot of points possible...definitely worth taking with him compared to what I hear about the other Psy 385 profs.

Monahan is a cool teacher. He is pretty forgetful and sometimes gets off track, but he will help you out with any problem if you ask him. Sometimes unclear, but likeable.
