Taylor, Kathleen
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

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

Worst psych professor I've ever had as a psych major. She gets frustrated very easily when you ask her questions and is very, very unorganized. She told us 4 times that she would return our exams the next time we saw her before she actually did. She always had major typos in her powerpoints that she never fixed (like typing "not good" instead of "good"), arrived late to her office hours and then left early because she had to "be somewhere important", and is just obnoxious overall. It seemed that she didn't even want to be there most of the time and was too busy to help students. Also, she wouldn't let anyone go to the bathroom for the final--I saw a lot of people go up to her and ask but they had to sit back down. And I've heard from a lot of people that she never answered e-mails, especially right before the exam when you needed the help. She seriously has an attitude problem. But don't worry too much if you have to take her, just try not to talk to her as much as possible and you'll be fine. You don't need to do the reading unless you don't understand her slides (which is very, very often), and you just need to know the slides and the study guide and you'll do well on the exams. However, she does have a lot of confusing questions that are worded very poorly, but you can still do well anyway.

Workload:

just read the slides, 3 exams
