I love attending this class. I am taking it once a week at night. He makes it interesting and brings us dinner! As much as I enjoy the lectures, the exam is over the book, not what we cover in class. So youre kind of stuck teaching yourself

Dr.R was an alright guy. He went off topic a lot during the semester and the lectures were hard to follow because of that. He never responds to emails and dont bother getting the book because I never even opened mine.

He tends to go off topic a lot, and I mean a lot and it is very hard to follow lectures, so that makes tests difficult more so than it should be. Some of the topics he doesn't make clear and I would not recommend this professor.

LOVE HIM! As long as you go to class you'll pass. He tells you EXACTLY what's going to be on tests and quizzes. No homework or projects. Very nice and funny. We also start every class with meditation time. Take this professor! You won't regret it! Don't buy textbook.

Comment:
This class and teacher are a joke. He is computer illiterate and hasn't replied to a single email all semester. The first day of class he didn't have the break down of what we are doing done. His lectures are a joke. goes off on tangents. Copies tests from online quizzes. The class is easy but grueling. It's boring, unorganized. Do not recommend.

Comment:
He is pretty helpful if you ask him questions. I found this class pretty easy, but I studied quite a bit, too. He has quizzes basically every week over the material from the week prior... he gives you all the information you need to know on them, just study. Doesn't give out study guides for the exams, but he lets you know what's on there.

Comment:
This class was easier than anticipated. If you have any sort of biology or science background then this class will be very easy. Some students found it challenging but I assume they hadn't had this type of coursework before. He lets you know exactly what to expect so pay attention and you'll do well.

Weekly quizzes that are based off of lecture. I did fine without buying the book. He has outlines posted on EMU Online. His lectures are really fun to attend, and the material was interesting. He cares about his students success, and bases exam frequency on that. I would definitely recommend this class and professor.

He takes forever to grade. I didn't feel the need to attend class as almost nothing from the lecture was on the exams. However, they were posted online, which was nice. The book is necessary to pass them, along with the study guides. Easy class to pass, but dryboring to attend.

The textbook wasn't really necessary for the class, if you take good notes and read over the outlines he gives you, the quizzes will be very easy! He's a very fair teacher, entertaining and makes this class enjoyable. Just attend, listen, and review your quizzes. Not very quick at giving grades back, but I would recommend to take him! Very cool guy

While we did not use the textbook that he swore we would be, he still presented information that is interesting in the field of psychology. Quizzes are based off of lectures and exams are pulled from those quizzes. Show up, take notes, pass the quizzes and you will do just fine.

No. No. NO. Please don't take his class. 1. Told us to buy a $200 textbook with the internet code, it is the end of the semester and we have not used the code or the book for that matter; although the book does help to prepare for exams. 2. He does not do what he says when it comes to quizzes and assignments for points. 3. He glazes over lectures!!

Comment:
Oof. He is rough. His lectures borderline on ridiculous. He loves to go off on tangents and tell stories that really serve no purpose. His due dates were all over the place and not updated for the summer semester, which made it difficult to know what is due when. Avoid, if possible.

He is such a great professor! Very funny, helpful and clear on his expectations. The material isn't easy but he gives you helpful handouts. You must attend class in order to understand the material. If you attend lecture and study the handouts his exams will seem easy. There are no surprises with him. His main goal is to help students. He is also a great advisor; easy to talk to, nonjudgmental and caring.

The material is difficult but he is very helpful if you do not understand. He will explain it over and over until you get it. His quizzes are very easy (he tells you what to study to do well). The material is very interesting for the course and you will learn a lot.

I took the online version of this class. I didn't learn anything even though I did well. He's not an easy professor to get in contact with and more often than not I had no idea what was going on or when anything was really due. Due to the lack of interaction, the class seemed like an afterthought for him and he was almost too lax about everything.

His class is challenging, but if you attend class and pay attention then the tests are easy to study for. The quizzes are really good tool to use when studying for the test. Also if you can get the study guide book that goes along with the textbook, a lot of his questions come directly from that book.

Great class. He's funny and fun, and really makes it obvious what you need to study for the exams. The quizzes are easy and bring your grade up if you actually take the 5 mins to study for them. Easy, fun class.
