Quarter: Winter 2019
Grade: A+

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

Quarter: Winter 2016
Grade: A
Nov. 3, 2018

Literally the EASIEST class I've ever taken, and I'm a Psych major with a 3.1 GPA. I could write an entire essay on how EASY this class is. I studied for maybe 1 hour MAX before each test because I had some really personal issues that quarter, and I somehow ended with an A here. My only A that quarter, and the only class I passed that quarter.

He ONLY tests on broad concepts, like how much should you walk (5,000 steps it's in the slides) and NEVER asks anything specific like years, dates, people, etc. He'll throw out any question if under 50% answer correctly, so my strategy was to think like the majority of students would. Just think logically. If a question says "Alcohol is bad -- even the tiniest amount," obviously you should put True. Don't overthink anything.

More on the exams. Focus on broad concepts. Don't memorize steps, theories (useless to memorize Eriksonian's 10 steps of development), etc. Don't even need to really know biology. It's very humanities-like and common-sense like.

He curved insanely. He won't EVER tell you how much he curves, until the end. I never studied for this class and I day-dreamed during 80% of the lectures. I ended with an 80% and I got an A. He basically wants to give everyone A's.

By the way, the review below is fake. Also, he said himself that the Spring 2015 distribution is wrong; I don't think he even taught in Spring 2015. Bruinwalk, please fix this.

Easiest A. Read the slides once before the exam. Get your A. You'll walk out of the test in 20 minutes.

Quarter: Winter 2017

Dr. Hill is very clear with his lecture materials and is willing to help students outside of his class. His lectures are engaging and he always tells short anecdotes to help students understand the materials better. His exams are very reasonable: if you attend lectures and review the power point slides, you will be fine. The final project is also fun because it gives you an opportunity to modify a behavior and change your bad habits and observe any subjective changes within yourself.
