Lindemann, Patricia
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

I love Patty Lindemann. Contrary to what you'd expect from an instructor in a large lecture class, Patty personally relates the material to real life and uses abundant examples of case studies and statistics not even included in the text. On top of that, she's hillarious without even trying to be. I definitely suggest taking Psych with her, and if you're just fulfilling the Science Req, take this class.

Workload:

3 moderate exams and 3 Reader-Response Assignments (2 page analyses of a psych article and how it relates to topics discussed in class). Really try to be creative and relevant on the RRs, because the TAs are hard graders. Also you must participate 6 psych experiments for maximum credit, and fulfill 6 of 9 EC opportunities to be considered for extra-credit.
