Let's be 100 about this class. I took the class because people told me it'd be an easy science requirement filler (which it is if you took AP Psych), so judge me if you want -- I don't care. This class was actually HARD. There's a lot of material covered on each exam so there's never enough time to study enough for anything. Also, the TA's grade everything ridiculously harshly. To get a good grade in this class, you need to write EXACTLY the way that they want you to. Example: The exam questions were convoluted and it's not like they ever tried to help/go over their expectations for how to properly respond to short/long answer questions.

All that being said, the lectures were entertaining. Lindemann's cool -- which is the one thing I'd say is accurate about all the reviews I see about this class.

TLDR: This class was designed to weed people out of the psych major so it's not ideal whatsoever to take this for your science requirement unless you've already taken AP Psych.

Workload:

3 Short papers, couple of exams, lots of assigned readings from the textbook, and participation in roughly 3 psych studies.
