Horvitz, John Gold_nugget
Beahvioral Neuroscience

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

I took advice from the last person who reviewed Professor Horvitz and found out that everything that was said was right on the mark! Prof. Horvitz is amazing, and there's no other way to describe him. Classes were informative and so interesting, and sometimes he supplemented stuff with great videos. He also explained stuff lots of times until you understood it, and was totally willing to talk to you after class or in office hours. Best part: he put everything in class on downloadable powerpoint slides that help you study, and he tells really bad jokes about himself and his friends that had our whole class on the floor. Just an all-around incredibly nice guy and amazing professor

Workload:

Midterm and a final that were both multiple choice and short answer. Definitely not easy, but not hard either. Some questions are giveaways and others really make you think. His tests were really fair and the TA's are really helpful. The reading load isn't too heavy, but make sure you get all the reserve readings (annoying, because you have to copy them all from the psych library) because he actually does test on them!
