After having taken this class i seriously cannot understand why people complain about it so much. This was one of the easiest classes i've taken at UCLA. Professor Geiselman is very nice and pleasant, and the coursework is minimal in my opinion. The final was super easy too. As i psychobiology major, this class required a lot less work than any of my other classes. Maybe for psych majors, this is a different case? I don't know. But seriously, take 100b with Geiselman if you can. 6 units of A :) with less than 10 hours of work put into the class the entire session. Also, Curtis is a great TA!

the first time I took psych 100B was durin regular quarter, spring, it was such a hard class, my TA was horrible. so for the second time I took psych 100B during summer and I got an A in the class. there was only a fainal xam worth %30 of the grade. psych 100B is a diiferent course, %70 of your grade was in the hand of TA, this is were you might heart, I am happy I had the best TA for my psych 100B, althought the professor was not well organized for the class, I liked him, his test was fair.my recommendation, take the course in the summer, and be careful about who is going to be your TA beacuse it dosen't matter how smart you are or how much you study, you might fail or get a C in this course if your TA is bad. it happened to me, I wish I could tell her name here, I believe UCLA must fire her. she dosen't deserve to be at ucla.

I took 100B over the summer. Its supposed to be easier over the summer since there are no quizes and the professor does not cover as much material. Professor Geiselman explains the material clearly. However, he does not go over much material, and the material that he does go over is in itself easy. His test (one final exam) was easy. However, some of the questions were poorly worded and when confronted about this he would not admit his mistake. To me, he did not seem to really care to help the students. The class itself is instensive, but not difficult. If you want to do well in the class you have to put a lot of effort into your work. Your grade is composed of lab assignments and your research paper. It helps if you get a good TA, because your TA is the person who essentially gives you your grade. Your research paper is graded by your TA and the professor will not help you on it. Take advantage of your TA. My TA, Grace Chang, was really nice and was willing to help edit and go over my paper. As long as your paper is clear and detailed (and I mean detailed!) you should do well in the class. The reason people tell you this class is hard is because they don't put much effort into their paper. The TAs are really nit picky when it comes to grading. A lot of people lose points for not correctly following APA guidelines. I got an A+ in the class.

In Psychology 100B, the bulk of your grades comes from your research paper, which means that the TA's decide much of your grade. If you have a cool TA, chances are that you'll get a cool grade.

As for the professor himself, he's a pretty boring lecturer. This is because he lectures on stuff that you already know from Psychology 100A, and he expands effusively on basic concepts. The final, which is based partly on lecture, is very tricky but is more than doable.

Overall, lecture is a waste of time, and if you know Psychology 100A concepts pretty well, don't even bother going.
