I skimmed through some of her past reviews and I honestly have no idea what those particular students are talking about when they say, "Don't take her!!" etc. etc.
I took Social Psychology and it is thus far my favorite class at UCLA. She is also one of my favorite professors at UCLA thus far as well. And to give you an idea of what type of professor I like, here's a short list: Victor Bascara (Asian American Studies), Bruce Barbee (Education), Neil Garg (Organic Chemistry), Matthew Fisher (English), Akram Almohalwas (Stats), and Debra Pires (Life Science).
As you can see, these professors teach completely different courses (and some are a lot tougher than others) but what they all have in common is that they really care about their students, have a passion for material they are teaching, and they love teaching in general.
So for SOC132 specifically, there were readings every week but they were doable. If it's "too much" for you, you probably shouldn't be in the humanities to be honest. They were doable, period. They were also very interesting! And she makes you apply what you learn through journals, essays, etc.
It's a very good class. I would explain how much I love it, but then you (the reader) might just think I'm biased or something.
All I can say is that she is an excellent professor. If you don't like her, you honestly probably just disliked the course material or the way she structured the class.
She's a wonderful person and wonderful teacher.
Please take her. I highly recommend it.
