Lindemann, Patricia
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

I find hillarious reading other reviews of professor Lindemann, because for most part they are exaggerated. I would tell you: she is not as bad as she appears to be. She is concentrated on making you understand the material that is already easy and straightforward. She is not one of these professors that bullshit alot about nothing. Her lectures are well organized and presented on the powerpoint. If you miss the class, you can still acess them online. There are no midterms or finals in that class. There are 3 tests, each covers the third of the class material. These tests fairly test your understandng of the material:is fair: 50 multiple choice that are based on the book, and 10 common-sence short answer questions based on the class notes.
What I would admit is that she is weird, but it is no harm to you at all. She tries HARD to be funny, but if someone laughs at her jokes, they do so just cuz they are trying to be nice. Once she tripped on the extension cord, but in order to ease the embarasement she started dancing something inbetween the electric slide and polka. By the end of the semester, you would learn the names of her two kids (Rebecca and Jordan), the profession of her housband, and a whole bunch of other "girl talk"
I would strongly advice you to take this class though. Patricia is a very nice lady, who is open to after class discussions. Feel free to email her with whatever you are concerned about.
