 Dr. Judy's tests are hard, but the questions are mostly based off vocab., if you know the vocab, then you know a good part of the test. The other part of his test is applying the terms, so if you can do that, you can do fairly well in his class. His lectures are very boring though, but if you attend class regularly, you should do well on his tests.

 I know there are tons of negative comments on this guy, but he isn't too bad. He is a liberal bastard with rock solid views, but if you go to the class you will get his point. He has a lot of..culturally unacceptable points of view such as women are supressed in society, blacks too and things that might make people uneasy during class. I know a lot of people argue with him, but its all in the book too, he just agrees with the book. My point is you don't have to agree with him, his class is basically easy. A few tests in multiple choice format with 2 essay options at the end of each test, you pick one. Random quizzes in the same format, but shorter. These are a joke, he is just giving you the points for showing up to class. My one negative is that he always has pitstains, even in winter. Its very disturbing, oh and he talks a lot about his wife and how he basically hates her.

 I don't know why there are so many negative comments about Dr. Judy. I mean sure he's a quack but his class isn't that bad. He tries to get everyone involved with weird questions. His tests are multiple choice and pretty easy. All you have to do is pay attention in class.

 If you listen to the positive comments about this guy, i pity you. He is the worst teacher i've ever had. I hated going to class and especially hated it when he talked about his sex life with his wife. The tests are impossible i got a 69 on the first test, 76 on the second test, and an 85 on the third test and somehow ended up with a B...you figure it out, but a horrible teacher none the less. Don't take him.

 You do not even understand how much this guy sucks!! First of all he thinks that for every hour of class you have, you should spend 3 hours outside of class working on sociology! He really thinks that. We are talking about a gen. ed. here!! I'm sorry, but I have 16 credits!! That makes for a 64 hour school week!!He makes you go to two observations outside of class and write a paper on them. He gives 4 pop quizes a semester. His tests are insane! 60 multiple choice, 5 matching, and an essay. He words the test different from the book and even different from his lectures. It almost seems like he is trying to trick you. He spends the whole class talking about nothing, scratching his head, putting his foot up on his desk, and showing us his pitt stains. He throws questions out like, "why don't you take all your clothes off right now?" And he will spend 20 minutes talking about that when he should be going over the chapter!! He doesn't cover all the material from the book, but he adds more stuff on the overhead....and yes he wants you to know the book and the extra stuff. I took some hard teachers so far, but he takes the cake! I hate his class and I know you will too. This will be my first non A of my college career and that says a lot. DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!

 After every test Judy put the amount of students that received an a, b, c etc...and 90% of the class had a c or below every time. He bases a lot of the material on his tests on insignificant facts and theories instead of the important topics and definitions of the class. When I made a suggestion about why so many students failed each test he responded in saying "I don't reward mediocrity and I wont curve to help you, I think you can handle this" well, obviously from the average grades in your classes WE CAN'T! He's clueless!

 He is not just hard, but really doesn't like teaching or you if your not a minority or a hippie. His class is worthless and a waste of time because he is a liberal democrat loser.

 Dr. Judy, at first, seems like a cool guy, but then his lame sex jokes and hit put downs about his WIFE get pretty old after the first 2 weeks. I studied for probably a total of 8 hours for his exams, and the highest grade I got was an 92. It's mostly multiple choice with one essay, that you can NOT BS your way through.. he will take off a point even if it's 100% correct just to be a d*ck. The choices for answers for the multiple choices are all THE SAME... all 4 "possible" answers are the exact same thing reworded, which makes it impossible to intelligently pick the right answer. There are 3 quizzes, which he says at first will be unannounced, but he told us the class before each quiz that we should be expecting one. On our last exam, 20 people out of 32 got Ds and Fs, only 3 got As. To pass this class, you better read the book word for word at least three times. In class, he babbles on and kind of about stuff that's in the book, but it is completely irrelevant. He puts people on the spot, and when you give an answer, he'll always find something wrong with it. I asked him one time why my answer to a multiple choice question was wrong, and I told him why I thought it was right, and he wasn't the biggest douchebag about it. He didn't even KNOW what the answer I circled MEANT, even though it was a synonym to the "correct" answer. Sit in the back, and he won't put you on the spot. He also alllllwaaaaays runs over time. I worked my freaking ass off in this gen-ed class. THis guy sucks... he DOES curve though!

 Dr. Judy is a nice man, however when it comes to teaching a class he is not so nice. I know I receieved a D in his class, BUT could it be b/c he missed almost every class of the last two weeks of the semester YET the final remained the same.? I think so! I e-mailed him three times with no reponse. His tests are impossible and are never on anything he talked about in class. If you HAVE to take Dr. Judy be prepared to read the book WORD FOR WORD.

 Ok, hes really energetic. But for this class and the way he teaches it is a bad thing. He skips around way too much and you never know what the heck he's talking about. I thought his class was so boring. I honestly would not recommend this prof. Nothing personal though.

 Don't take this guy. He seems alright in the beginning. But the tests are nothing like what he talks about in class. When you go see him, he makes you feel like a dork. His tests are super hard. Participation in class doesn't help cause if you argue with him or have something to say, he'll just put you down. I will give him credit from raising my grade from a 65 to a C. I'm not a lazy person, and i studied probably 3 hours for each test and still failed..

 judge judy is an aweful prof. he goes against what the book says all the time so u never know what is right and what to study. in class he goes all over the place. he never stays on the same topic and you never know what you should write down. his tests are impossible!!!! i swear he just makes this stuff up. if you can take another prof DO IT!!!! on the last test he gave there was 1 A, 3 B's, 5 C's, and the rest were D's and F's. i think that says enough!

 Dr. Judy has a southern accent and gives notes the whole period that you will never see on the test. The tests are hard because he picks tiny details out of the text which he never reaLLy emphasizes the importance of reading. I would not recommend him because he is never around, he is not a kind person, and his tests are difficult. Take someone else for this gen. ed.

 If you do anything you won't fail. If you want a A good luck. His test are horrible, quizes are easy. If you don't like going to class don't take him he takes attendance everyday!! It doesn't matter what you do the test will go something like this for the class 1A 3B 9C 11D 7F The most horrible things about him is the way he talks about his wife. He always says that he wouldn't marry her again. If you're a girl be prepared. He doesn't think we are good for much more then sex. And he'll talk about it all the time. If you have to take him be prepared to sleep for the whole time and sit in the back so he doesn't call on you all the time.

 he can be pretty nice sometimes. but other times, he'll talk about his sex life or something really odd like that. his tests aren't too bad if you study for them, they are multiple choice and one essay. the two observations are a pain, but not really unreasonable...easy to get an A. he also gives three pop quizzes that can't be made up, so make sure you go to class pretty regularly. overall, the class isn't too bad, he teaches it really well even if it is boring and he gets on weird topics sometimes.
