Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

After reading the reviews on this class I figured it would be an easy way to knock off the science requirement. Boy was I wrong. This class ended up being one of the worst experiences of my life. The tests were open book but it didn't help much. I remeber finding the part of the book for the question and stil couldn't answer it right because of the way Galanter worded his questions and answers. There is no such thing as a huge curve either. Maybe in the past but not anymore. Galanter's lectures themselves are way to scientific for the typical undergrad to understand. Overall, I highly don't recommend taking this class unless you feel like getting f***ed

Workload:

Three quizes, all open book and open note and for some open computer (this i didn't understand because they would accuse people of cheating while the person next to them was using google to find the answer to the test) Reading is useless because even if you do do it, you won't be able understand the questions he asks come exam time
