WORST TEACHER AT TORREY PINES!! AND THIS IS COMING FROM SOMEONE THAT GOT AN A AND NOT BECAUSE I CHEATED LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE DID BUT BECAUSE I ACTUALLY READ THE CHAPTERS! He does not know how to teach and should never teacher. He always has excuses for not teaching so we feel bad for him. Knows nothing about psychology. People cheat like crazy and it drives me insane. He grades tests wrong and I had to go question by question pointing out the right answer with proof from the book. TERRIBLE!!!

This class single-handedly made me lose faith in the American public education system. If you have him on your schedule, just cross off "AP Psych" and write in "free period" cause that's what it is.

Awesome, understanding teacher! If you approach him, he will answer any questions and will be willing to discuss any psychological topics you want to. Read the book!

He is on some form of LSD, so dont expect to get a 5 on your AP test, but if you want a class that you can pretty much walk out the door of, well yeah

Knabb is a good guy, but not a good teacher. Don't expect him to help you get a 4 or 5 on your AP test.

AP psych with knabb is an easy ap; We dont do much in class, just make sure u study for his tests and its an easy A. Hes a really chill/lax guy, and if he likes you, you can do whatever you want basically (super smash bros in the first row ftw). Overally awesome class.

Great guy. Don't go into the class expecting an easy A because the tests are actually quite difficult. Read the book and you'll be fine. You really don't even have to go to his class.

calling him a teacher is embarassing. haha he doesn't have the sligtest idea of HOW to teach. all we do is talk about life and watch videos and powerpoint from time to time which he reads directly off the screen. He doesn't even make his own powerpoints. Doesn't write his own tests. And can't teacher to save his life. and to top it off, he gives tests that are impossible to pass without teaching the material. haha he's a chill teacher, but you deff don't learn anything.

Mr. Knabb is really cool, but there are no rules in the class and you mostly just sit there and talk. He always tells you to do something, but he doesn't grade what he tells you to do, so no1 does em.

Mr. Knabb is funny because he forgets things so much but if you plan on taking the AP test, he doesn't give you the best preparation.

can he actually teach? he blames us for not doing well on the test. Truth is, if ALL your students fail, YOU fail as a teacher. Why is it that we can ace every other AP class and pass all the AP exams, yet do so poorly in his class? He has changed so much since the beginning of the year. More strict, less considerate, equally as clueless

His class is very easy, but students take advantage of him WAAAYYY too much. He needs to enforce SOME SORT of dicipline policy because he has almost NO control over his class. I also feel that I did not really learn that much, especially second semester and we rarly do ANYTHING during class. You really need to read the book in this class because he does not covor the material in class.

Should do more lecture and be harder on students. Class is a mass. (from a intelligent and succeeding student in his class)

Mr.Knabb is cool in that he assigns nearly no work and lets his students get away with anything. Take this if you want an easy class, but it's a waste of time.
