Drew, Michael
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

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

I don't often write reviews, but I felt somewhat obligated to in this case, as none of the previously written reviews on Prof. Drew truly illustrated how completely dull, disorganized, and awful a professor this guy is. I absolutely completely and totally dreaded every single one of his lectures from day 1. He seldom had intelligent answers to students' questions. When a concept is difficult, he'll refer you to the book rather than explain it himself- he'll actually say just that. I'm ashamed of Barnard for having hired such a professor, even if his issues are just a function of his age and inexperience. Please do yourself a favor and avoid this class at all costs.

Workload:

the test questions are completely arbitrary and nitpicky.
