This class was amazing! One of the best professors I've ever had. She is so passionate about the material and is an expert presenter and professor
Dr. Sumner is one of the best professors I've ever had at UCLA. Her genuine passion and excitement for health psychology was so evident from day 1. The material is SO interesting and engaging and has reshaped the way I view healthcare. Tests are totally doable if you study the slides and pay attention: she's really not out to get you and you can tell she just wants students to learn something valuable! And again, she herself is so approachable, intelligent and just has an overall positive energy. Can't recommend her enough!!
I really enjoyed this class! Dr. Sumner was a great lecturer, she was very clear and broke down topics. The readings for the class are super light, and she uses short popular press articles that are easily digestible. The tests were multiple choice and easy. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she was very compassionate and allowed students to make the final optional. She really cares about student learning and I considered what I learned valuable and applicable to my life.
Dr. Sumner was the absolute best. The material is interesting and will serve you in the ling run. She doesn't require you to read over a dense textbook but instead asks you to read timely articles that teach you relevant information. Her exams are doable and fair as long as you review the slides and read all the reading assignments. The two papers involve reading articles and answering some questions about the purpose, IVs, DVs and statistical analysis. As long as you write legitimate answers, you should be fine. For the peer review manuscript paper, you criticize an article and point out any limitations. Start the paper early and break down each part. She is reasonable and wants you to succeed. Participation matters so go to class and engage in the Campuswire discussions as earns you EC. The most amazing thing about this Dr. Sumner is how much compassion and support she offered as we were all facing the stress of COVID-19 pandemic. She allowed us to opt out of the final exam if we were happy with our current grade which relieved a great deal of stress. She made sure to give us daily updates and made herself available on Campuswire every single day. Take her if you want to learn useful information and feel respected and supported by your professor.
I really really enjoyed this class!! Dr. Sumner is really nice and presents lectures in a clear manner. I personally think it's an easy A and the material is very interesting! You do need to have an iclicker since participation counts. Also, we were required to do 2 journal reviews (5 pts total) -- so it's helpful if you've taken 100B, especially for the final manuscript (worth 15 pts). Essentially you read a publication and answer questions about it -- like what was the IV, DV, etc. The lectures are straightforward, and I suggest focusing on the slides and the studies mentioned since they are on the test.
I would definitely take Dr. Sumner again!
