Had Holyoak for the first module of Psychology 10. Decent professor, talks very slow though. Lectures are very straight forward, following the lecture slides precisely. Pace and content is quite consistent with the textbook. Exams are all recall and straight from the lecture slides or book. However to get a perfect score on the exam, you will need to memorize every detail (even the small ones) from both sources. That means reading the book thoroughly and consistently, not just the lecture slides. If you do so, you will get a very high grade in the class. The average on his exam was a B (about 85-87 I believe).

The material isn't all that interesting but I definitely recommend this professor for 120A! This class was co-taught by Prof Liu (first half) and Prof Holyoak (second half). Prof Liu did his best to explain the complicated information but his accent was terrible so it was hard to follow. I preferred the second half with Prof Holyoak. Unlike many psych tests, Prof Holyoak's were straightforward. Do the reading and study his lecture notes. He explains the material very well so attend lecture.

Dr. Holyoak is a sweet and caring professor. His presence was pleasant in lab and he was always willing to help with our papers/projects. I think what truly matters in this class though is the TA. We had a wonderful TA this quarter - shout out to you Maureen, you rock! - and I'm not sure if she TAs every time but that definitely matters.
You have 2 written assignments and one big group project where you conduct a study, collect and analyze data and write a long paper with your group. It sounds intimidating but Dr. Holyoak and his TA are there to help you the entire time and they were even willing to revise and give feedback multiple times before the final submission.
Great lab!
