Ristau, Carolyn
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

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

do not take this class. if you don't absolutely have to, don't take it with this woman. seriously, her lectures are erratic, her exams incoherent, and her stubbornness obsurdly rude. in my opinion she has no interest in compassion or being reasonable with grading because she finds us all too privelaged for that. she's one of those "even if you ALL agree on the answer to a question and got it wrong, you're still wrong and i know it because i know i'm right" teachers. this happened on about 1/3 of the poorly written questions on her exams.

Workload:

2 midterms and a final, textbook readings, also readings of extremely difficult primary sources, half of them her own incoherent publishings
