Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Do not take this class. I repeat DO NOT take this class. It is not an easy A. I got 5 points under the mean on every test and I ended up with a C+ in the class. Professor Galanter has no idea how to convey information to the class. Yes he is brilliant but like the pitfall of so many other professors on campus he can't teach. He babbles on about psychophysics this and psychophysics that so much you actually need another indtroductory course to figure out what he is saying. Yeah the quizzes are open book and open note and for some people open computer which I didn't think was fair when they pulled me aside and told me I was cheating. All in all, this class is awful. It may have been an easy A in the past but not anymore. This class royally sucks.

Workload:

As much as you want to do. There is a lot of reading but its really not required since the quizzes are impossible anyway.
