Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This was a very interesting class, and Professor Kay is a good professor. But, don't take this class becuase you think it's an easy way out of the science requirement...it's not. This is by no means a joke class and there's a significant amount of work. But, the material is genuinely interesting, the professor good, and the curve even better. I definitely reccomend the class.

Easy class. Six homeworks, five open note quizzes based mostly on the homework with the answers to the homework in front of you. She's very nice and helpful during class, but can be a bit rude if you ask her a question one-on-one.

She is very passionate about her subject. Classes are interesting, and if you pick up on most of what she says, you'll have an easier time on her quizzes. She is also willing to help students outside of class and is very flexible if you miss class due to holidays, etc. In fact, if you ask, she'll photocopy her notes for you.
