Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Yes, this class fills a science requirement. And yes, there are only 3 quizzes all semester. But this man is nuts.
I mean that in a nice way, actually. On a scale from one to senile, Galanter should be in a nursing home, but he's quite entertaining from time to time. "No one on earth understands the Finns and the Hungarians, and I firmly believe that this is because they are extraterrestrials." What? Oh man. You don't need to go to the lectures, the readings are all on a cd so you only pay $35 for all of your books, and the quizzes are open notebook. If you do the readings, and show up on occassion, it's an easy class. Boring usually, but easy.

Workload:

3 open notebook quizzes (although each quiz is on 20 chapters of material, so open notebook doesn't make that much of a difference unless you know where everything is). No midterm or final.
