Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

I don't understand what the other reviewers didn't like about Galanter. His lectures were extremely interesting, and he explained them in great detail. His stories always related to the subject. I never missed his class because I didn't want to. He makes you read from four books, three of which were boring, but if you do the reading and study your notes you'll ace each exam. By ace I mean A+, because he gives those out. His system of letting you mark the incorrect answers is fabulous, you can get a lot of credit even if you don't know all the answers. Take his class if you can, his lectures are enthralling if you care at all about psychology.

Workload:

3 quizzes (the last one is cumulative and in lieu of the final), a decent amount of reading.
