Professor Magnuson certainly tried hard to make his class accessible (master web site for all relevant info, available powerpoint lectures), but this is a course that's desperately in need of a subject. There's no theory to be learned, just a whole semester devoted to lab technique, experimental construct, and other topics that are usually found within the first two chapters of any real science textbook. And the time devoted to statistics was simply insult to injury - psych majors already have a stat. requirement! Two of the three labs were devoted to language and memory, Prof. Magnuson's specialty, but he didn't take the time to teach any of the theory behind them. Thus, writing the lab reports was about as fun as chewing broken glass. I don't blame Professor Magnuson, he certainly tried hard, but someone needs to inject substance into this course if it has any hope of survival.
