Review #2 / Course: PSYC 2040 / Instructor: ADAIR F
easy course if you can go to class or read the book. don't really need to do both. offers 2% bonus points for experiments. doesn't keep you the whole time, usually like an hour- hour 1/2. definitely go to class before the test to get his review. if you know the basic definitions of his review then you'll be good. easy a.

Review #3 / Course: PSYC 3050 / Instructor: ADAIR F
I took I/O Psychology because I thought it would be useful in the long term. The course content and subject matter are not terribly difficult and can be easily understood in a reasonably quick manner if you have a decent teacher. However, Frank is a terrible instructor. He could spend an hour discussing something that should at most take 5 minutes to go over. Monotonous and boring, attending class was physically painful. I gave Frank an A+ regarding "exams and grading" because he does return exams swiftly but his actual tests make simple concepts confusing and hard to keep straight. I/O Psychology may be a good class to take but avoid Frank!!!

Review #4 / Course: PSYC 3050 / Instructor: ADAIR F
To do well in this class I think it is important to go to class and to read the book (at least read the book to better understand the class notes). The short review given prior to the test is not sufficient to do well. In that review Dr. Adair only highlights some of the main points that you should know for the exam. Overall I/O Psychology can be very interesting and useful. But long night classes can be quite tedious. Dr. Adair is a nice professor.

Review #6 / Course: PSYC 2040 / Instructor: ADAIR F
This was a very easy class. Although Adair speaks in monotone most of the time, the material is not difficult at all. I got a B in the class because i messed up on the second test and got a 82. I forgot there was a test that day and i studied 20 mins before the class. On the other two tests i studied for about 2 hours right before the test and made a 92 and 94.

Dr. Adair is a little dry and monotonous and it's hard to pay attention for 3 hours straight, but the material is fairly interesting.

Adair is a fairly monotonous and boring professor. I could have gotten an A, I just got behind. 4 tests, opportunity for 3 bonus points if you do experiments. Usually lets you out early for night class.

Adair is nice enough. EASY class, no need to buy the book if you simply go to class and take notes. or get notes from online. MAKE SURE to go to the review before each exam and you'll get an A :)

MR. ADAIR is the typical BORING-AS-HECK Professor. He's in his late-40s & speaks in Mono-Tone the ENTIRE CLASS. However, class is NEVER the full 3 Hrs. (usually only 2 hrs) Tests are Fair (but book is needed!) Class is SOO DULL, but very easy 2 learn

All the reviews so far are accurate. Lecture attendance is most certainly a choice and reading the textbook (which is very interesting, btw) is a perfectly good alternative to class. Attend the review before the test. He's a nice guy so it's not bad.

I would recommend Adair solely on the fact that I never attended classes (except for exams), studied the notes on Noteswap.com. He test are identical to the material from the review!!! Soooo EASY!

This class was sooo easy, I never went and got the notes and got A's on all of my tests, study his study guide and you'll be fine, it was actually nice to have a teacher test on the material he gave us and not ask tricky questions.

Dr. Adair is very boring as others have said, but you don't have to go to class b/c he gives a review a week before the test, and it is all you need for the test. Not a piece of cake, but pretty easy.

He's a little dull, but the material is interesting enough. The class before the test, he gives you a review that basically is the test. Teaches basically by the book so going to class isn't exactly necessary.

He's very easy & friendly. The trick is to show up during the break (halfway through the class) on the class before the test. Give it about 10 minutes and he'll start giving you the questions and basic answers to the test.

Adair is extremely boring. His exams are purely vocabulary. He reads right out of the book for his lecture. Don't waiste your time going to class. He will email a study guide so you know what to study- and that is exactly what is on the test.
