Hello and welcome to psych stats.  I know that everyone is so very excited about this course ; -)  Actually, I am FULLY aware that many students enter the course with much anticipation, and yes, even some anxiety.  Please know that I am here to help you through this course!

Let me start with some basics for the course:

Read everything!  I know that there are many courses that you may can get through without reading the text.  This is not one of them.

Stay up to date on assignments.  If you get behind, it is almost overwhelming to catch up.

Do the learning checks in each chapter.  It will help you, and if you are struggling, it is easier to see where you are getting confused.

I encourage students to help one another with assignments.  Know that I am also available.  You are welcome to come to my office hours (on the syllabus) or contact me via phone.  To leave a message at any time, call 806-720-7827.  If you would like to actually talk to me, you may call my cell, but I ask that you respect my time with my family.  You are welcome to call M-F 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.  Saturday and Sunday noon - 9:00.  Because I have a crazy schedule and have a private practice, you may have to leave a message.  If so, leave me times that I may return your call.  My cell is 806-438-2996. (I also welcome text messages to this number.)

DO NOT WORK WITH ANYONE OR GET HELP ON THE EXAMS.  I WILL FAIL YOU FOR THE COURSE, IF YOU DO.  I FAIL STUDENTS EVERY SEMESTER FOR THIS REASON....PLEASE DON'T LET IT BE YOU. 

I am so willing to help students, so please feel free to use me as a resource.  We will get through the course together! 

Let's get started,

Dr. Eade
