this was a great class. incredibly interesting material and a great teacher. it is now my major.
The instructor is really clear in lectures and clear what is going to be on the exams. Insturctor provides great information and examples to understand why each situation is critical and how it affects Family and Marriage life.
Dr. Yeh is so awesome. He is very funny and makes class very interesting.
essays could help instead of having 3 exams determine what your grade is
I really enjoyed his class
Very interesting class, concepts are explained thoroughly and made easy to understand for students.
Since the course is based on only tests, it can be challenging. Maybe have a least one assignment throughout the semester.
i think he is a great teacher, very knowledgeable in this subject however sometimes he is hard to understand because of his accent. I also feel like he may be to old to continue teaching, he sometimes is a little too slow. His mid terms are not completely consistent with his "word for word" notes. some of the questions on the mid terms are not clear where the answers choices could be varied.
Great class! :D Keep up the great work! :D
This course was really well done and straight forward, although nothing is open for discussion.
Great class, I learned a lot of interesting things!
His loud and distinct voice made it clear to hear, although some words could have been misinterpreted by the way he says them. His speaking pace is great for a lecture class. I got all the information he said, which helped me prepare for his midterms.
Test were extremely difficult.
I really enjoyed this class.
Dr. Yeh's lectures were always clear and well-organized so that we could gain knowledge very effectively. I also liked his and his TA's way to make the exams. The questions were usually not tricky, but simple in good way.
I enjoyed this class :)
Great professor.
this class needs a study guide before tests along with being able to get help from the professor outside of class
Professor Yeh is a great teacher! He explains very well and tries to make some jokes that are related to the topic to help keep us awake. I'm not going to lie, some of the work can be very boring but I like Professor Yeh's touch to the subject - I can tell that he is very passionate about it. Other than that, the exams can be very difficult due to the very tricky multiple choice questions. So far, I got two Cs on my two midterms. Even though I actually stud instead of the "A and B only" or "all/none of the above" type of answers.
I very much enjoyed this course and Professor Yeh. I found it to be one of the better courses that I have taken at UH Manoa.
I enjoyed this course very much and I learned a great deal. Thank you.
exams wwere roughly based on lectures, but some information was not referenced in his lecture, or the book. it made studying for said exams very difficult. i don't think its fair that he relies solely on three tests for grades when he doesn't even cover everything on them, and much of what he does cover is subjective. he is also hard to understand when he lectures.
awesome teacher, simple but surprisingly effective. learned alot
:)
Dr. Yeh is one of the best professors I've had here at UH Manoa. I enjoyed his lectures so much. He does not use powerpoint presentations, instead he uses the blackboard and most of the time simply just speaks. Even with no visual aids or fancy powerpoints, I feel that he is even more engaging and entertaining than any other professor I have had. He knows what he's talking about and will often reference his own experiences to further explain the concepts he is teaching. He seems to be a worldly man, and a man of many fasinating stories. I am honored to have been one of his students.
Very good class. Professor Yeh is excellent. Lectures are very concise, and easy to understand and follow.
He is farby my most favorite teacher in this institute. He delivered this course well with practical lessons that is useful for my day to day life.
