Son, Lisa
[PSYC BC1113] Cognitive Psych

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

These rankings are misleading - I was hesitant to take this course after reading the reviews below but I ended up doing well in the class with not much struggle at all. The class exam average was normally around 80%, which she would curve to a B+. There are 3 exams and a final, and she drops your lowest exam. The questions are all very straight forward if you learn the lecture material, and Son was very generous in discarding any exam questions she though were unfair/students did not do well on. One of the few psych classes I got an A, and know many other students who got the same grade.

You do not need to buy the textbook. Just go to all the lectures.

Workload:

Not much, other than studying for the exams and final.
