Terrace, Herbert
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

It was an interesting class to say the least. Off the bat, he is boring. If his voice doesn't put you to sleep, his 100s of useless slides will. I've never slept so much, even in High School. The textbook that you HAVE to buy and he wrote, consists of about 150 pages divided in to chapters in particular reading. Don't try to complement the lectures with the textbooks cauz it just won't work. I mean some stuff was interesting, The guy knows his stuff, but you are always wondering how to put it all together. Hope you get a decent TA...

Workload:

3 exams that are not cumulative but that are hard as hell. Mandatory discussion sections with quizzes that can be re-done until you pass it. If you get in the B range, you're lucky.
