She does not teach. She reads 99% of her powerpoint slides with terrible explanation skills and expect for students to LEARN and UNDERSTAND the material. I find this class laughable because of the teacher. I love the subject. I find it to be fascinating. However, I find myself teaching every last lecture to myself. It is nice that she compensates her terrible teaching with detailed powerpoints. I just took the final and I can easily say that if I had a couple more weeks to learn and understand the material myself, I might have had a chance. Unfortunately, since I have 2 other major science finals after this class, I wasn't able to devote my life learning this on my own during finals week. There was about 150+ pages of lecture notes (4 slides on a page) with excruciating detail on nearly every page. The best part is, by the end, it no longer is studying for an exam. Rather, I found myself in a marathon trying to memorize everything my eyes laid on. Her lectures are notes she took from the textbook, which is... in enough detail to burn holes in your eyes. It also means, you don't need to really read the textbook. To be honest, avoid this class unless you are a neuroscience major, in which case, just know that you will have to teach yourself everything about the brain.
Prof. Bauer is incapable of producing complete sentences on her own. She basically ends her sentences/ her answers to students' questions with whatever is on the current powerpoint slide.
