An extremely knowledgeable professor! He certainly does not give marks away, but that is a good thing. His tests are hard because they force you to think very critically, which helps you become a smarter person. Being in his class is a very rewarding experience.

Had him for abnormal psych and hated it. Explains too fast with a lot of details so he expects you to understand. End up just writing almost everything he says because most of it is important and will be on the test. Uses textbook and you have to get an additional book which was annoying in general. Material was interesting but the way he taught it was not. So ended up not caring. Test were hard. You have to work and earn your grade. Tests were difficult. But he's extremely knowledgable.

Do no bother. Class average is always low, he basically copies and pastes whats from the book, tests are difficult and his grading for essays and tests is harsh. If you are not 100% passionate about psych, you will either fail or barely pass. good luck

He is such a knowledgable and nice teacher, but his class is very hard. His exams are difficult because the questions are so specific. You have to take a lot of notes even if you think it is not that important because it can end up being on the test. You have to work extra hard to do well in this class.

Not sure if he knows what he teaches or not because he basically just teaches what the textbook says. He gives the same example as in the textbook. He speaks like a robot and I barely can focus in his class. He also locks the door and will NOT open it for late students (good luck for 8:30 classes). He is a nice person but his class is so demanding and exams are really hard even if you studied because he asks specific questions

so unbelievably easy to do well in this class. he's a good teacher and knows all of the material like the back of his hand. there is a lot to study but it helps a lot if you listen in class and take good notes. when he spoke I wrote everything he said down and I did amazing in the class. the essay is pretty straightforward too and not hard to do well on it, just take your time. if you don't understand something he'll explain it in a different way and ask questions, he's always willing to help

Don't let those 4+ stars foul you. He is knowledgeable and you can tell he loves psychology but I would not recommend him. His tests are hard even if you start studying 2 weeks prior to the exam. He goes through his slides so quickly and then on the test you get a specific question one bullet point. The big project that you have to do is confusing as well. He does not guide you if you need help but rather tells you off for not knowing.

His courses are undoubtedly one of the hardest courses I've ever had to take during my 2 years in CEGEP. He has incredibly high standards and yet does not make the time to explain what those standards are. There's very little room to do well in his course. His exams are long and tricky (even with days spent studying prior to the exam) and he's very harsh on assignments and the final project. His course will make or break your love for psychology.

Rajesh is a good teacher but sometimes very hard to follow. He goes through his lectures very quickly, which is what his exams are based on, which is difficult. Gives assignments that are lengthy and sometimes harder than they have to be. Not the most approachable either.

He is a really nice teacher and knows his stuff well. I'd say you had to be either good at psychology or be passionate enough to want to do it later on. His test and grading on assignments can be unnecessarily tough. His lectures are indeed based on his lectures but textbook does help with explanations if needed. You also need to note down examples as they do appear in tests at times. I did personally find a lot of the lectures interesting and would take him again.

Mixed feelings. Nice guy, very knowledgeable. It was a hit or miss with him- some concepts he explains well, others he doesn't. He has high expectations, class average is pretty low. Only take him if you plan on taking psych in university, as his class will prepare you very well. I find his class boring though, even though I enjoy the material. He is not very engaging, lectures are extremely boring and dry. I basically taught myself all the material this semester. Shoutout to my textbook!

Had him for both General and Abnormal Psychology and passed with 80's! His classes are definitely challenging (a lot of note taking and studying required) but he makes material extremely interesting so it's bearable. All of his tests are multiple choice with one long answer question (which he usually gives you in advance so pay attention). Also, he doesn't like when students are late or leave class! Overall, he's a great teacher; 10/10 would recommend if you're passionate about psychology.

Do not be late for his class because he will lock the door. His powerpoints are not too descriptive so taking notes on what he is also saying is really important. You need to study a lot and read a lot of material for his class. His tests are not easy at all so you need to know your stuff. Overall, he is a great teacher and really explains everything he teaches well. He is very knowledgeable and is always willing to answer questions.

Very intelligent and coherent, but he spends the whole class talking. His powerpoints are filled so all you do is listen and write super fast before he goes to the next slide. He covers lots of material, and his exams a very hard. I had to read the whole textbook chapters+notes for exams, and you have to memorize everything. Exams are very hard, would not recommend if you don't like psychology (you will have to study A LOT for a general psychology class ....).

Seems like a nice and intelligent person, but does not make attending class necessary, because everything that you need to know is written in simple notes in the book (Intro. to Psychology).I think that he is a good teacher, but a good teacher should give their students a reason to go to class, which unfortunately he doesn't. Sooner or later many of you will realize that an easy teacher is not necessarily a good teacher, not that I'm saying that Mr. Malik is bad.
