Professor: The lectures can be quite interesting, and he seems pretty chill and nice.
Course load: Almost nonexistent, since there is no homework. Just study for the midterm and final.
Exams: Both midterm and final were multiple choice. You're going to have to go over your notes well and really pay attention during lecture and the films he shows you, as well as a good general idea of the readings because there are some specific detail questions on the test that you could easily miss.
Grading: Since the only grades you get are from the exams, what you get is completely dependent on you and your studying. Shouldn't be very hard to get a B or above. Plus, he drops the minuses on grades, so if you get a B-, you'll get a B, and so on.
Overall: A very enjoyable and interesting class. A must take for Psych 10.

I don't know about his upper div lectures, but I loved him in Psych 10. (Had him Winter 2011).

His exams were all multiple choice and based mainly on the study guide. (Michael Cohen was our TA and he was awesome and dead-on for many of the study guide points and review sessions.)

The required reading was very easy to read since they were actual popular books.

I ended up getting an A. (So I guess I may be biased.) I think to do well, you have to really pay attention to lecture and do the reading!
