Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

I would definitely reccomend this class, if only to fill part of your science requirement. Galanter is, as another reviewer said, basically senile, but he's hysterically funny. He also made major contributions to the field of psychology, so he really knows what he's talking about. The lectures vary between very interesting - both because of the material and because of his random stories - and sleep-inducing. There are three "quizzes" (50 minute multiple choice tests), but they're based more on extensive reading than lecture notes and are open book.
