Sam Sommers | PSY032 - Experimental Psychology | Psychology2005-11-17

Review:
Professor Sommers is awesome. He's hilarious and knows how to entertain and teach at the same time. The material is not extremely interesting, but he does provide great clips and examples to make them more so. Participation is not as intimidating as it would be in other large classes. He actually makes an effort to know everybody's names.

Workload:
Readings are typical, less than an hour. And they're easy to understand. But sometimes I wish the text was a little more technical with definitions so you get a better sense of the terms.

Halin Schendan | PSY032 - Experimental Psychology | Psychology2005-05-05

Review:
In my opinion, this teacher has nothing valuable to offer her students. She teaches this course straight from the book, which is fairly useless, then writes her PowerPoint?s straight from the material in the book, and reads her disorganized PowerPoint?s word for word in class, later to be posted on blackboard. Going to this class is far from a necessity as she has nothing to add to what the book says. She treats students like they are 5 years old and teaches the material as if it were rocket science... when in reality, the class is about how easy it is to format a psychology paper

Workload:
The work is time consuming and mind numbing. She gave out a book that required us to look through articles and copy down sentences based on their structures and certain "key words." I felt this was stupid and pointless work for an equally stupid and pointless class. I hear Sommers is a much better teacher for this one.

Michael Carlin | PSY032 - Experimental Psychology | Psychology2004-11-30

Review:
I first would like to offer a review of Professor Carlin. He is an excellent professor. He is always willing to help in the case of confusion or any other problem that may exist. He is very thorough; he also gets to the point and makes things relative so that a student can grab the concept. Experimental Psychology is an ok course though. It is a lot of tedious work, you do learn a lot about the experiment aspect of psychology, at times maybe too much. But all in all it is definitely the course that is needed to get through the upper level courses in psychology. It is a mandatory course for those who are general psychology majors, but my advice to you is to write down everything Carlin says because it is VERY important. With him the midterm exam is worth 10% of your grade the same for the final exam, but it is the experiment APA papers that are worth more and you will get better at writing them as the course goes on. Good course...tedious but informative.

Workload:
There was a lot of work. You have a lab every week; you must also run your own experiment. There are about 4 or so APA papers that are written within the semester.
