Terrace, Herbert
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Oh jesus...that is honestly all that I have to say. The sad thing is that this isn't a terribly hard class. In fact, it is fairly easy. However, Terrace is so boring it made my teeth hurt. The only thing mildly entertaining about the lectures is when Terrace shows up in a pink dress shirt. For some reason he is strangely captivating in this get-up. And, the text? Well, let's just say it is no suprise that it is still in manuscript form. I don't like monkeys. And, as a cognitive psychologist who plays with monkeys, Terrace speaks an awful lot about them. Also, his lecture examples are infamously confusing. So, in conclusion...if you don't like monkeys and boring/confusing lectures don't take this class.

Not bad.
