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!! The only explanation for why there are some positive reviews of this class is because Galanter USED TO curve each individual quiz grade, and then curve at the end. Now he ONLY curves the grades at the end of the semester, but it isn't very much help since the quizzes are IMPOSSIBLE. I went to every single class, took copious notes, and did a fair amount of reading. However, NONE of that helps you out on what I've decided are prank quizzes. Guessing does not help you on the quizzes either, so there's no way out. I do not know ANYONE who received a good grade in this course. I ended up Pass/Failing as a senior (who needed to knock off the sciecne requirement) b/c of the grades I got on the first two quizzes. Galanter actually had bravado to offer to sign off on LATE DROPS because he realized how may people were going to fail the class!!! What a nice guy right! My roomate(who did more readings than I did), stuck it out and got a C! This class is an embaressment, and MUST be taken off the list for non-science majors.

Workload:

Three IMPOSSIBLE quizzes.....the mean on most is less than HALF. Enjoy
