Repetti is a bad lecturer. In class you want to either shout out "shut the hell up" or run to the front of the class and hit her.

Her tests are absurd. I studied all the important stuff like how the psychopathologies work, diagnosis, treatment and subtypes. Studying the important stuff, however, got me a C. I expected questions like 'how does schizoprenia work', 'how do you treat mania', or 'how can one differentiate various anxiety disorders'. Rather, there were questions like 'in the video you saw in class, what disease did mary have?' (this was an actual question that appeared on a test.) Given that we saw multiple videos and I didnt take notes on the names of the patients, I could only guess. It was funny how the test covered so much irrevelent stuff that I am sure a Clinical Psychologist with a PHD would not have gotten an A without memorizing unimpotant bulletpoints.

Furthermore she is very unhelpful. When I was sick and had to miss a test all she could say was refer to the sylabus. When I asked her a question about reviewing my final and about why my final score was not entered she said "We were able to make arrangements to review exams 1 and 2, but we are not doing this with the final exams. Any questions about grades for psych 127 should be directed to Professor Yee-Bradbury, after June 28th." Thats just great. Since you are incompotent I have to wait an extra 2 weeks until the REAL co-professor comes back to findout my grade.

All in all, dont take her class if you 1) want to learn 2) want to enjoy lectures 3) want to get a decent and fair grade. If you dont care about any of these three things, Im sure you will enjoy her class.

Yee is a pretty good lecturer. She is not amazing, but she is interesting enough to keep your attention. She also explains the material reasonably.

Her tests, however, are absurd. I studied all the important stuff like how the psychopathologies work, diagnosis, treatment and subtypes. Studying the important stuff, however, got me a C. I expected questions like 'how does schizoprenia work', 'how do you treat mania', or 'how can one differentiate various anxiety disorders'.

Furthermore she is not very helpful. I missed a week of school with 103 fever and had to miss a test, and Yee would not let me make it up or do anything about it.

Lastly, if she is co-teaching with Repetti I recommend you not take the course. Repetti is the worst and most unhelpful teacher I have ever had.
