Good class.
Professor Ankowski's lectures are very easy, so easy this class could be lower div. Everything about this class is great but she makes a lot of mom jokes and repeats the same material verbatim from Think Like a Baby, which is a book she wrote with her husband. Grade breakdown is 2 midterms each worth 100 points and discussion points worth 100 points so over all you'll be graded out of 300 points . Theres an optional final that will replace your lowest exam score. Attendance for discussion is mandatory because participation is part of your grade. There is one paper and a presentation thats very easy. Textbook is very helpful.
Take this class! It's easy and very informing.

Professor Fuligni is an excellent teacher. Although her lectures are very faced paced and you tend to leave with a hand cramp, you are guaranteed to stay awake. She shows concern and is willing to meet with you outside of class. I am already enrolled in her next class and suggest that UCLA look into giving her a full-time position.

Professor Goff is not only an amazing professor, but also an amazing human being with great passion for developmental psych. She is very thorough with her explanations and she does not stop explaining a concept until you truly understand it. She is willing to make time for you, if you can't make it to office hours, she will take any moment possible to squeeze you in despite her busy schedule. Don't simply take this class just to learn about the material, try to actually talk to professor Goff because she is an intelligent, funny, kind individual who could help you figure your future out as well. Take her!

Professor Johnson is one of the best Psychology professors! I really enjoyed the class (even though I may have fallen asleep several times, but I do this in EVERY class unfortunately...) if you are interested in developmental psychology, this is the best class to take as it gives you an introduction to it and is not overwhelming. It was a fairly easy class, just make sure you pay attention to lectures as most of the exam questions are from here. There are several odd-ball questions from the reading book, and honestly, I did not read but skimmed it and still managed to get an A-. This may be because he does drop your lowest score if I remember correctly, and there is a generous curve. My FAVORITE PART OF CLASS was when he showed us video clips of the experiments he was talking about. He also likes to show graphs. If you are a visual person, this class is great since he incorporates visuals. Great class! I would definitely recommend. He is also a very funny and SARCASTIC guy. His jokes are funny and he is even great if you have him for his honors discussion for this class. Unfortunately, I had to drop it, but my friend said he shared a lot about his personal life and it was just fun to listen to it and get to know the professor outside of lecture.

I am surprised that Professor Silvers does not have any reviews! She is by far my favorite professor at UCLA . She is so funny, passionate about the subject and very approachable. Her tests are not hard at all. If you simply go to class and put in some time to study you will do just fine. I personally thought her tests were way easier in comparison to tests in other psych classes. The class consisted of 2 midterms and a final (she drops the lowest midterm), 3, short 1 page reflection papers and participation in discussion. I never stressed about this class and actually enjoyed going every lecture even though it was bruincasted. Seriously, take Silvers you won't regret it.
