Terrace, Herbert
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Unlike Charleton Heston, this man deals better with apes than humans. His lectures are intolerably boring, so much so that only half of the three hundred students attend them on any one-day. This truancy is facilitated by the fact that he wrote his own text book which is basically a transcript of the lectures, and the TA's post the lecture notes on the internet. with these two sources, it is possible to skim by the weekly pass/fail quizzes and the three non cumulative exams, though i do mean skim since the exams are terribly specific. avoid this course if at all possible (psych majors must take it, though it is also taught by Galanter, who i hear is more engaging.)

Workload:

three non cumulative exams, weekly pass/fail quizzes
