Hill was a great professor. He was very engaging and didn't waste time during the lecture like Walker did. Attending his lectures made the first midterm far easier because of his teaching style and personality. It made the information very easy to remember and stick in your brain.
If you don't attend lectures, you could still get the information from the textbook, but you may miss a few things that he mentions or posts. I didn't read the textbook simply because his slides and teaching style were so effective; take good notes to facilitate your memory of his lectures. Give yourself a few days before exams to make notecards of the terms and you will do just fine.

Do NOT take the Gerontology version of 119. Take Psych M119O; they both count the same, whether you're Psych, Psychobio, or a Gerontology minor.

***This distribution is seriously inaccurate; it was copied from Psych M119O, but they are NOT the same class. Check the distributions if you don't believe me. You will see that they are the same. The readings are different and so you get a different test. The Gerontology one is kind of like an Honors section, and in Week 2, you have to sign up for a 2-hour weekly learning session***

tldr; don't take this version... dropped my GPA from 3.98 to 3.91.

Pretty easy for a psych class. Very interesting lectures and the professor is a genius. Also he let us out about 1-1.5 hour early every week. Highly recommend for a fun psych elective

Known to be an easier class, but don't underestimate it. Two exams (90%) and a paper (10%) constitute your grade.

Lecture presentations are disorganized and sometimes hard to follow. Tests are "easy" but you still have to study and it's hard to feel "safe" (I never scored >93%) despite the reputation. Workload is light, basically just lecture material is tested (readings are studies, optional for success). Don't know how the paper was graded, but from communications with Dr. Hill students should focus heavily on mechanism rather than describing studies and feel free to ask him for advice (I got a 10/10).

I don't recommend this class unless you have plenty of time to read the whole book and take notes on every detail and memorizing them. There are two tests ( each 60 MC) which are not hard, but the problem is you have to know every detail in the book because 60% of the questions are from the book and they are never discussed in the lectures. Two tests each 42.5% and two projects consist of 5% and 10%.

Overall, the content of the class is interesting but the lectures aren't engaging most of the time. Reading the textbook clarifies topics in class that maybe weren't so clear. Tests are doable but require you to memorize small details that aren't important to understanding the important themes of the class content. Take this class if you want to start thinking more about what it means to age and briefly understand ethical/social/political concerning aging. Or if you just want an easy class to fulfill a requirement. The courses that follow this upper div go more in depth, this class is just a quick run down on topics of aging.
