Balsam, Peter
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

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

I love Prof. Balsam. Okay so the material is a little dry sometimes and you may be looking at your watch I little too often. However he does know and love his stuff and offers plenty of examples. He doesn't use slides but I actually didn't have a problem with his notes on the board. I found him very well-paced and easy to follow. Do the study questions and you can even email it to him to check. He is very very accessible and you can go to him with any questions. Plus if you love emailing prof's thousands of questions don't worry - he loves questions and people who show some effort in studying.

Fine. Some say exams are tricky but I found them pretty reasonable. Even if you get a few wrong you can still get an A. There are 3 non -cum multiple choice and equation exams. I would def. recommend this class! Do not fear other people's review. Woohoo for Peter Balsam
