I took Intro to Psych with him, and he's what made me want to become a psychologist. He knows all his stuff and makes classes really entertaining and the content easy to understand. However, he jumps around from topic to topic a lot and sometimes can be confusing. Strict about attendance, talking and cellphones. You have to put in a lot of work to pass his class, but it's worth taking him because he LOVES his job and he loves psychology.
Took him for sports psychology class and it was a class that ended at 5:30 so it's hard to be happy about going to this class but I looked forward to it considering he makes the class pass by really fast as he is funny, knowledgeable and he really knows his stuff. I highly suggest you take him if you get the chance to!
He knows his stuff but he always keeps you in until the last minute and never cancels class. He is confusing at times and honestly just repeats himself a lot. Had him for intro to psych and he made us do a project where you had to partner up and spend 8 hours with a person with learning disabilities. He is overall a really nice guy though
Somehow makes 75 minutes of note-taking entertaining. He's been teaching this stuff since before they discovered fire and it really shows how often he's rehearsed his lectures.
His tests are based on stuff in the lectures and stuff in the textbook. If you don't read the book, you're going to miss some stuff. Mostly multiple choice exams, but not easy.
Welcome to the world of Peter Bender and Bob's your uncle.
Omg you just have to take this teacher!!! He knows his stuff, is super funny and shows really cool examples. I had him for intro to psych and I hope I get him again
He is an amazing teacher, had him for intro to psych and he is honestly just amazing. Just study really hard and you'll do great. He's funny and if you go see him, he will really help you. He gave me a few answers for the very last test in the gym because he liked me a lot. Makes it really interesting. Just take him.
honestly one of the best teachers i have ever had! he is a man with so much knowledge and respect for others
take the time to study for his tests, all the answers are in his notes and worksheets
definitely take him if you can.. you will not regret it!
ended up with a 92 in the class, he is simply a great teacher
Most caring teacher ever! He picks on people a lot but its funny. He repeats jokes and stories but you get used to it. His notes are terrible and the class is pretty hard. Tests are multiple choice (expect for one) and its hard when his notes are so bad. He never cancels class, class always ended late and it was really boring. If you show up, itll help a lot. The big project he does is really annoying to do and really boring. He is really understanding but he doesn't make things clear
Just take him as a teacher.
For the new students taking him, just note one thing. This prof is a super chill and respectable man. You should respect him for giving his own time to teach you underlings. On a side note, I barely managed to pass the class. The reason for this was simple, drugs and work took a toll on me but I still managed to pass this class because he was super chill. If u make him angry il make all ur life hell.
Took Sport Psych with him as a summer course (easy course, low workload) - nice guy, tries to keep it interesting. Don't bother buying the book unless you're planning to miss lots of classes, his notes are perfectly sufficient to get 95%+ on exams. Final project is super easy. Only downside (if you're looking to raise your R-score), high class avg. (it's hard NOT to do well).
this teacher will hate on the maple leaves, keep the class moving quickly, say 'Bob's your uncle' ,remind you that he 'was born in the dark ages' and do everything in his power to make sure you understand the subject matter. BEST TEACHER OF ALL TIME!
The BEST teacher ever! You won't regret taking him and he's SUPER clear with all his explanations. I love the way he teaches and says BOB'S YOUR UNCLE!!! Interesting class.
He's super funny and really clear with all his explanations!
Great guy, makes intro to psych super interesting and enjoyable. Barely any homework and the tests are easy. Go to class and you'll do well.
Very very nice teacher, he knows his stuff. He is really funny. I recommend to everyone!
My favourite teacher at abbott so far. He clear, helpful and his class so fkn interesting. Sack a patate, bob's your uncle and prepare to destroy his class!!
He is pretty kool teacher to have in psychology. When teaching he is very interesting and fun, his class lectures pas by so fast that I never want them to end. LOL! He is very helpful, however you have to put the effort in taking notes and studying for the tests. He is a super great teacher to have for introduction to psychology, please take him as your teacher he is SO worth it! :D
Ridiculously good teacher. Very funny and friendly and really good at keeping the class engaging. Everyone looked forward to class with him and he seemed to always be in a good mood.
Best teacher ever. Really cares about his students.
Peter Bender is the Best teacher i've ever had at abbott. He has office hours all the time and loves what he teaches. He is a fantastic teacher. Very dedicated to his students. Tests aren't too hard. Material covered is always clear. Good notes and explains really well. Take him!

By far the best teacher ive ever had. Make sure you have all the notes and study and you pass with flying colors. great class!
He's a good teacher but sometimes picks on students if they don't know the answer to something. Gives second chances, tests are easy, tries to make the class interesting. He makes little remarks durin
He's one of the best teachers i've ever had. It is actually a challenge to fail his class. He is very precise and he will give everyone a second chance.
Awesome teacher, really fun class. He makes it interesting. Take him if you can.
Best teacher ever for psychology. Very thorough with notes. You might not like it if you're lazy with notetaking. Basically just study for the tests and you'll do great. I highly recommend Bender.
Amazing. Never thought i would enjoy psychology until I had his class. Clear and percise, motivational and friendly. Plus he was a formal model
Intro to Psych was pretty easy. Term assignment is helping special needs students. Attend classes and he'll like you
the most interesting and intertaining teacher ive ever had...you get so capitaved by the class that u dnt even look at ur watch to see what time is it...excellent teacher
You don't even need to take notes, just study from the book, and you'll do great! (Intro. to Psych.)
Best teacher i ever had an abbott. took him for both intro and sport psych and never had a grade lower than 80. he makes class so interesting and is a very easy grader. take him if u can.
I really didn't think I'd like psych, but Bender made it great.

I've been at Abbott for what seems like forever now (after various program switches) and I have to say Bender is the BEST teacher I've ever had. He's fun, interesting, super helpful and really understanding. He is always willing to give you a second chance and to help you out. TAKE HIM
Bender Is Honestly One Of The Most Amazing Teachers At Abbott By Far. His 3 Exams Are Really Straight Forward Multiple Choice Questions For Exams 1& 3 And Short Answer For The 2nd Exam. You Won't Regret Taking Him!
he is such an awesome teacher. HIs classes are always interesting and he's a funny guy. Makes jokes all the time! A lot of note taking, but it's always useful. For his exams he gave us cheatsheets, that help you study!
He is an amazing teacher. He makes psychology very much like common sense. You basically cannot fail one of his tests unless you really didn't pay attention in class. Definitly take him!!
One of the best teachers i've had... he makes classes interresting and fun....jokes around a lot...there's not much work for the class...YOU DON'T NEED THE TEXTBOOK!! it's a waste of $!!! he gives excellent notes...

AMAZING TEACHER!! Bender is super nice and funny, and very approachable. He gives excellent notes and always backs them up with a ton of examples and short movies, so that everyone understands. His tests are mostly easy, but he does put in a few hard questions, if you study his notes you're guaranteed a pass! take Bender if you can, you won't regret it!
The best teacher of all time! HE is funny but put his students education before anything else, his classes are clear, and you will never feel lost or confused. He gives his students a lot of freedom when it comes to their term papers. Take his class you won't regret it!
As a teacher, he's the gold standard. His lectures are fun and interesting with great examples and jokes thrown in. He's very helpful to students who ask questions or visit during his office hours. And he's also an easy enough grader that it's almost impossible to get less than a 75% if you show up and do the work.
Absolutely Fantastic. I never though psychology could be so interesting. Actually makes you LOOK FORWARD to going to class. His real life experiences make you come away with more than just whats on the course outline. I am very fortunate to have had this teacher
This guy's a joker! He's awesome: jokes, teaching, all of that stuff crammed into one guy. "Sac a patates!"
Had him for Sports Psych. Such a funny guy. He has a lot of real-life experience and is so interesting to listen to even for a 3-hour class. Has a good sense of humour. Only important things are the tests and a lit. review so make sure to copy his notes and study well!
amazing psych teacher: he's funny cool and smart. Tests are easy (some trick questions) and there is only one lit review that you will get a ninety in if you follow all the steps he gives you. Take him if you can!
Best Psychology teacher ever!! He cares about his students, gives amazing notes and helps out his students for up coming exams. He is just great!
