Dweck, Carol
W2680 Social and Personality Development

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

Carol Dweck is an engaging lecturer. As an expert in the field, she concentrates quite a bit on her own material and therefore is very clear in her descriptions of theory and of experiments. This was quite possibly the most interesting course i have taken in my time at Columbia. This class should be required for anyone who intends to become a parent someday. Each exam covers a lot of material, but the questions on the exams are VERY predictable, and for the most part, easy.

Workload:

Three in class exams, fair amount of reading from text.
