Psychology 126---MOST DIFFICULT PSYCHOLOGY CLASS!!! I had to take it, no choice! All the winter quarter labs are super difficult. Fall quarter labs are usually the easiest. Avoid this class if you can. The developmental lab is the easiest! 126--HARD, HARD, HARD, HARD, HARD, HARD, HARD, HARD times 100!
**GE CLST 72B** I don't know what everyone on this site is complaining about, maybe she's changed in the last few years. I found her questions to be extremely straightforward and easy. She was extremely good at answering questions and her subject matter was probably the most interesting of the four professors. ...Plus, she was kinda cute.
I had him for LS2. First off, Dr. Schein is a pretty nice guy. He is enthusiastic, a little dorky and really into his material which kinda kept me awake through most lectures. He definitely likes to learn the names of the people in the front, mostly girls, which is pretty cool. HOWEVER, his class is not easy. He races through lectures and I feel like he said we were behind already from week 2 to week 10 (and never lectured about 10 slides in the last chapter). His test are difficult. LOTS OF STRAIGHT MEMORIZING. Not too much conceptual and a lot of tricky questions. But my biggest problem was the curve. I calculated my points in at the end (he tried to "normalize" the scores -wtf??- by giving us a 0/8.1 for everyone) and i dont know how he does his grading. The percentage I got in the class was my final grade, however I talked to some people and there final letter grade was curved up from their raw percentage so i dont know what the fuck happened to mine but that was jacked up... Sure it was hard and I got ripped off in grading, but hes still not a bad lecturer. Really smart and available if you need him but GOOD LUCK on his tests!!
Alright. Had HC 64 with her. Experience? Horrible. She sucks as a professor. She's so defensive as a scientist. Bias and bullshit. She always tries to imposes her own ideas on you. I never believe in Psychology or Neuroscience. I don't think they are really science. I become more skeptical of them getting out than getting in. But the class was easy like shit. I flunked on essay. I didn't take half of the notes. Fell asleep in class. Late all the time. Hate all the easily impressed people in that class. But the tests were so easy even pigs can do it. I only studied 3 hours before both finals and midterms and yet I got a B+ (Yeah didn't really study, but that's alright for me). So it's a very very easy GE. It just makes you hate psych more. Such a subject that is full with vacuous crap.
