Chad is an awesome teacher. He makes all the material very interesting, and he lectures straight from the powerpoints, so it is easy to study for the exams. There are four exams and the final, but he drops the lowest grade.

This class was really interesting and Prof. Dodson was very enthusiastic and presented the material well. Don't be fooled by the level of knowlege in his slides, the tests are really specific and not easy! Other than that, I would recommend it to anyone interested in the subject

Dodson is a great lecturer but his exams are difficult and the large class size (and no discussions) take away from the class. Although he lectures directly from slides and posts them online and answers questions and emails very quickly, he often asks very obscure questions on his tests. A very difficult course for the 101 level. Recommend to those who are very interested in psych (if not, take the easier personality one)

Lectures are interesting and all the content you learn is seemingly simple. But don't let that fool you because all the tests are multiple choice and can be very tricky. Reading the book is very helpful, but doesn't guarantee an A. Some multiple choice questions are so specific and nit-picky, it's hard to believe he mentioned them at lecture but apparently he did. If you're interested in psychology just take a higher level class. You don't need to take 101
