Lindemann, Patricia
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

While I don't completely disagree with the previous reviewer, I think that there are some good things about Prof. Lindemann and the course that should be mentioned. Firstly, Prof. Lindemann, though at times may seem disorganized, does know her stuff and will answer your questions if you approach her after class about them. The TAs also work really hard and are very approachable and helpful if you take the time to ask them questions about things you don't understand. The course is generally interesting, and grading is fairly easy. To be honest, (and I don't mean any offense to the previous reviewer in this), but I think for a teacher, Prof. Lindemann is pretty good and I'm glad Columbia has given us the opportunity to learn from her and her TAs.

Workload:

Fairly Easy. 3 Midterms, 3 short papers (marked easily), experimental subject requirement, 9 extra credit assignments. DO THE EXTRA CREDIT. IT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN A AND AN A+.
