I took Dr. Butcher's Psych M119X in the Spring of 2008. He never put up videos throughout the quarter; it was all lecture. ^_^ I was taking this class together with Physics, Honors Physics Seminar, Anthro, and Honors Contracts Anthro, and so I didn't have that much time for it. I attended maybe 6 meetings throughout the quarter and got an A-. So... his class is easy, although the tests can be tricky because of how the questions are worded. They were all multiple choice choice, and we used a scan-tron.

Anyway, as a teacher, never mind that he's elderly-- Butcher has a good sense of humor. I actually feel bad (in retrospect), because I enjoyed ALL of the few times I attended class. Now what I really didn't like was the textbook. The writing style is very, very, VERY FLORID, and even Butcher admits it. The key to doing well is NOTES. And even those, I did not take down myself -- I purchased from the class notetaker's in the bookstore. Maybe if I took my own notes I would've gotten an A.

Be sure to do well on the exams, because you are not graded on anything else but the 2 midterms and a final.

I'm surprised some people thought M119X was hard(??). That's a ridiculous assessment. If you survived LS 1 & 2, Psych M119X should be a breeze.
