 I saw some people said his class was boring. I definitely think otherwise. Take the concepts and apply them to yourself and those around you and they can be really helpful in understanding people. I like Boeree's grading too though some might not. It's just 4 tests. BUT... no homework the whole semester!!! Just pay attention and maybe look over his online info. Good teacher

 Boeree was so easy. Most of this stuff I already knew from high school. There are no papers, projects, quizzes. You don't even have to buy a text book, everything is online. His tests weren't bad. There is no final. He is a little perverted, and he talks about sex pretty much all the time. He's funny, as long as you aren't easily offended. This class is definitely an easy A.

 Donít be fooled... his tests are not too easy, but an hour or two of studying the night before a test should be all you need to get an A. The best part about his general Psychology course was that I did not have to buy a book because he has his posted online. His lectures sometimes felt like some sort of therapy session to me. Especially when we would cover interesting subjects and students would start asking questions. I completely disagree with some of his personal views but unlike some professors he doesnít quash other peopleís personal beliefs. So to recap you save major money on the book, get an easy A, and get free psychotherapy; you canít lose. Take him if you get the chance.

 Dr. Boeree is a great guy. His class was simple, 4 tests and everything was online. Although it is very hard to get an A because there's only 4 grades and he doesn't give +- grades only straight letters so if you get a B+ you really only get a B. We got out early almost every class, and this is great and all but I would rather do more in one class and not have to wake up at 9 to come to the next.

 This class fit in with my busy business schedule very well. I only attended one Friday class the entire semester and received almost 100%. He wrote his own book to use for class, and there are 4 multiple choice tests. If you study the material online, you should do fine. He's a very funny guy and has experiences to back up his material. I would love to take him again!

 His classes are so easy, all you have to do is show up. He teaches from powerpoint and there are 4 tests. If you took a highschool psych class, you will pass general psychology easily. Personality was a little more in depth but still very easy. He never takes attendance, but you will want to show up anyway because hes funny and entertaining and he really knows his stuff. Hes incredibly nice. This semester I missed the very first test and he let me make it up more than half way through the semester without and excuse!!!

 He is the easiest going guy to have as a teacher. He wrote the book, so you don't have to buy it. He uses examples to help you understand everything. His lectures aren't mandatory, but the online notes aren't always enough to understand everything. He even has practice quizzes that are based exactly off of his real quizzes and tests. Although he's somewhat perverted, he's funny and means well.

 Boeree is a great professor... his sense of humor is twisted but he is funny as hell. The text is online so you don't have to buy a book and the study guides to the tests are on the same page as the text. If you didn't want to go to class you don't have to. He doesn't take attendance, but his class is one of the better ones to take. His lectures are based around the text, the notes are in a more simple form. I go more for his twisted humor. If you get the chance, try and get him as a professor!!!

 See above for my rating. Anyway, Dr. Boeree is the best professor at Shippensburg University and anyone who is in his classes should be thankful they are. They are being taught by an incredibly knowledgable, successful, wonderful man. He is the most outstanding professor at Shippensburg University by far. I cannot say enough good things about him. His classes follow a very simple format: 4 tests, no homework, no papers, no quizzes, no nothing. Just 4 50-question multiple-choice tests. If you come to class, even if it is only for the entertainment value, you will benefit greatly. The tests are easy and follow the outline EXACTLY. Also, there is no textbook because Dr. Boeree wrote his own. It is fabulous, by the way and even used in other countries. He is very entertaining, very funny, but not for Republicans or religious nuts. He is very uncensored and it is great. His classes are upbeat and enjoyable. I liked him so much that this is the second time I have had him and I would take him again in a second. If you get a chance to have this professor, TAKE HIM. Trust me.

 I have just changed my major to psychology and I now have Dr. Boeree for general psychology. He has reinforced my desire to become a psychologist. He is just so laid back and can joke around with his students, but he also TEACHES which is contrary to what many people are posting. I understand everything and I feel that if I didn't, I could go to him and he would be more than willing to work with me. I like the guy and he makes the class enjoyable, which facilitates a wonderful learning atmosphere. Let's face it, if the professor doesn't get your attention some way, you are going to be bored as hell and not bother to pay attention to him. This guy is great. Take him. I am definitely looking for his name beside the psych classes I am required to take!

 I loved going to his class (even at TR 9:30AM)... I only fell asleep once due to lack of sleep from the night before. His classes are all powerpoint. THERE IS NO BOOK FOR THE CLASS I REPEAT NO BOOK FOR THE CLASS. He wrote the book himself and put it online. Take notes in class from the powerpoint slides and then come test time there are outlines for the chapters that will be tested, study the outline and you are golden. THE TEST IS THE OUTLINE. Tests are all 50 questions ALL MC...NO ATTENDANCE (even though I recommend going because he talks about some VERY and I mean VERY funny stuff) I highly recommend him, he is a great prof.

 Dr. Boeree is a very interesting man. It's true that class isn't too exciting because he just sits and shows a powerpoint, but his examples are easy to follow, and he can be quite humorous. You wouldn't expect a man of his age and appearance to say some of the dirty things that he does. It was really nice that he wrote the textbook and put it online so there's nothing to buy. The class is only four exams, but he gives out study guides for each of them. If you fill them out and look over them, Dr. Boeree's class will be easy.

 This teacher does not take attendance or have a textbook. The readings are found online. There is alot of memorization for each test, but if you print out the readings and study all of two days before the test, you should not get anything less than a B. I wouldn't say its even necessay to go to class everyday because he gives you a full online that you study from. There is no final just 4 tests and thats all of your point. So if you are good at last minute studying, take this class.

If you do choose to go to class, just print out the chapter and highlight it during class so you dont have to really do much, hes funny too so if its not too early, youll enjoy it, take this class!!!

 This was a great class! The class was a bit boring itself so I used it to make note cards to study for the exam. I would premake the cards with the word on the front, because the study guide is online, and then during class when he would go over the term I would write on the back of the card. Then study the cards and take the exam and its full proof! I found this class very informative even though he just showed slides of his material online. All the repetition of the material really helped me remember it! Definitely take him if you get the chance!

 Dr. Boeree is the man to take for gen. psychology. It is quite obvious that he knows his material very well, and he makes his class fun to attend (with such things as a few videos, pictures, and TONS of life stories from the man himself). He fully understands that it is a gen. ed., and he teaches the class as so. Only 4 tests (mult. choice), so do well on them, and a few extra credit opportunities (i.e. extra credit on occasion for actually showing up to class). Overall, he is the man to take, and you will find yourself rolling with laughter at some of the crazy comments he makes, which he relates to the material.

 Dr. Boeree is a lover of fine European architecture, Freudian theory, and food. He is an interesting man who teaches an interesting class. He has no attendance policy, and his book is online, saving you mucho dinero. His class serves only to reinforce what he writes online, but I do recommend going, because it helps with the tests. The tests themselves are 50 multiple choice questions, and there's no final or midterm. Boeree's self-depreciating humor makes it an easy-going class, and he will be happy to go over tests with you during his office hours. All in all, take the class if you have the chance.

 nuff said? If not, Boeree (at least in the class I took him in) wrote the book for us (bonus: saves us $$), is happy to talk about everything and anything in his classes...but tries and succeeds in making psych entertaining...no attendence policy, honestly he probably wouldn't notice if you weren't there and if you miss a class just go online and take notes. No prob. Just study a bit for the tests based on your notes from lecture...go to the Learning Center if you were a nervous first semester freshie like I was and relax. You've got it made. Take him if the chance presents itself! :D You won't regret it!

 Yes, he is an "easy" professor, but he is not someone that you won't learn from. I was a psych minor and did better than the psych majors in the class because I came to class and studied for his tests. Unlike one person has said, he does want you to learn, you just have to let him know you need clarification when he asks "Any questions?" rather than sitting there saying nothing. He's a jolly man who likes food, and is very layed back. He says the damnedest things, and if you talk to him outside of class he's even more funny. I used some of the theorists I learned about in his class to write a paper for an English class, and the prof about had a heart attack--so yes I learned something. You can too.

 Boeree was a funny guy and his class was really easy. Attendance is not mandatory, and really not necessary. He puts a study guide for each test on his website that is exactly like his tests. I probably went to class 5 times all semester, did no homework, and got a B. The classes i did attend were fun though, with Boeree talking about his past drug experiences. He also likes to say penis a lot and bust on himself for being fat. Great Professor, and I actually learned a lot from him.

 He is exactly what a prof should be; interesting, knowlegdeable and entertaining. The material was interesting to begin with but you'll definitely pay attention because he is very entertaining. Great, great prof!

 This guy is absolutely awesome. First of all he is sooo funny!! He loves sex and told our class it would be fine if we missed the class for it! He is lectures are interesting and he incorporates examples that are relateable to our lives. Tests were not difficult, always multiple choice and you have an outline with everything that will be on it. Definately a good choice to take him! Great guy he is!

 Crazy guy, he's middle aged, fat and obsesed with sex. Makes lots of jokes about himself, hes actually funny about half the time. Gives you an outline of what the test is going to be on and goes over everything in the outline as he lectures. Just fill out the outline, study and get an A. If you need intro to physc take him. You will learn and have an oppurtunity to get a good grade.

 This guy is funny in class, lots of sex jokes...but the class can be rather boring at times. Mostly he just sits there and talks. Not really my idea of a good class. But you don't need a text book for this class, all of the reading is online..there you can save a few $$$.

 This guy sucks, his sex jokes are funny, but he doesent seem to care if you need help or not. I asked him for help and he said I couldnt pass, after failing the first test and a D on the second. But I got a D in the class. He is too serious about general psyc.

 Okay, so you don't really have to go to the class b/c he doesn't take attendance. But he is boring when you do go to class. There are 4 tests and each one is only 50 multiple choice questions. I haven't learned anything really from this class. You have no opportunity to do extra credit either. Overall, I hated this class. He was boring and the tests were kind of difficult. I wouldn't take him for psych of person. I would take Sato.

 Do not listen to the positive comments, he has completly changed. It is true there is no book and the material is online but that doesn't make it easier. He teaches to you like you should already know the stuff and then when the tests come around they are not on the stuff he taught, they are random questions he never talks about. He is a good guy but says some uncalled for comments sometimes and really does not care what you get on you tests. DO NOT TAKE AT ALL COSTS

 I took this prof based on recommendations from the Angelfire site, and it turned out to be a disaster. He is great if you want to learn absolutely nothing and skip class every day. I forgot most student are lazy and dont care about grad school here, so that is why he is rated so high. In no way do his classes help you learn about anything! Very lackadaisical way of teaching that I found to be ineffective in class. However, if you are a deadbeat and love to talk about getting laid because you aren't getting any at home, take him. You'll love it!

 Professor Boeree doesn't seem to care how his students do, because there are only 4 opportunities for grades in the entire class. Despite this, he provides an outline of what should be studied. Make sure you ask if the test is going to be multiple choice, because he gave our class a matching test once and it was horrible! Overall, he is a nice guy who knows a lot, despite coming across as lazy.

 I had him my last semseter at SHIP. I must not like working hard that semseter cos i thought the class was a lot of work just studying but you didnt have to buy a book because it was online. It was interesting at times but he is mostly lecturing the whole time in class which drove me nuts because of my ADD.

 This professor seems to have little interest in how his students do in his class. He gives three tests and either you do well on them or you don't. There is no term paper, no outside research, and he does not take attendance. I feel like I didn't really learn a whole lot. It's like he was just reading a book to us. Don't get me wrong he is a nice enough person, but I was not inspired to learn from him at all.
