Rakitin, Brian
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

By far the worst Professor I have ever had. I did not feel comfortable approaching him about anything. All he does is read his powerpoints in a monotone or at times angry voice, these presentations are just outlines of the reading not having any more information then the textbook and is posted on coarseworks before the class.

Fortunately, the textbook is pretty interesting and is basically all you need to know for the exams. Make sure to memorize key terms and people in the field and experiments explained in the text.

Try to take this class with ANY other professor.

Workload:

Minimal, just heavy readings. There are alot of pages but is thankfully very interesting. 3 Midterms.
