Hart, Carl
[PSYC W2460] Drugs and Behavior

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

Prof. Hart is a very admirable guy, because he is a successful academic and he advocates beliefs of his (about drugs) that don't neccesarily reflect those of the institution etc.

He's a pretty good lecturer so his 9am lecture isn't too bad (oh, and there are surprise quizzes too). If you keep up with the lectures (take notes), reading and do the essays for the exam (given before hand) you'll get a the ave. grade, a B (his review sheets for tests are pretty good too).

The only bad thing I have to say about this class is that it started to annoy me, so I started to resent it. About half way into the semester I felt like I was being spoon-fed information about the benefits of society would enjoy if we would just accept drug use. It's a good class, just try not to think too much.

Workload:

Medium-load, weekly reading, must attend lectures (quizzes, PPTs not posted), 2 fair midterms (use review sheets, do given essays before) and a fair final
