I actually really enjoyed this class. I thought the material was really interesting to learn, and Professor Karlsgodt is really approachable as well. Lectures were always posted in advance so you can just go through them whenever you wanted. I would say, however, that she does talk a bit slow but if you speed up the lectures you should be able to get through them without a problem. The course was broken down in the following way:

Exam 1 (40%)
Exam 2 (40%)
Polls (10%)
Discussion (10%)

The polls are really easy, you just complete them as you're watching the lecture and basically just get graded upon completion. If you do all of them, you get one extra credit point. Discussion is also mandatory. Sometimes TED talks are assigned or reading an article but overall, I enjoyed the discussions. The TA's sometimes go over some content review as well. You are allowed to miss one discussion and still get full credit for them. I also found both exams to be fair. Most of the questions came from her lecture slides so if you went over those and truly understood them, you should be able to get a good grade. There are a few questions, however, that come from the book so keep that in mind. The readings are sometimes kind of long (50 pages for one chapter) but if you space them out, they don't feel long at all. The final is optional so if you do well on both midterms and are happy with your grade before the final, you don't have to take it. The thing that does suck is that midterm 2 is on week 10 so if you decide to take the final, you basically take it the following week. You also can get two extra credit points by doing some studies, for a total of 3 possible extra credit points.
