This Teacher Is the most easiest of them all. No Homework No Classwork. No Paper, No midterm. I took her for spring and we only had 3 exams with 80 questions all from the studyguide she have out. My advice if u want a easy A go to her class everyday and take notes for your study guide and that's its

She bluffed her way the whole semester, giving laborious, poor recitations from the teachers guide every class, and letting us go very early every day. Oh the agony of mandatory attendance! You can get an A by studying to the test with the study guide and book, but you won't learn nearly as much as you could have.

Should be an automatic A for most students. She gives you a study guide which lists the topics on the test. All but one or two questions are covered in the study guide so just look for those topics in the book and study them. There were 3 tests during the semester, all multiple choice. I consider myself a lazy student and found this class easy.

You need to read the book. She jumps all over the place when lecturing.

Fairly straightfoward class. Grade is based on 4 multiple answer tests. 50 questions each. Probably easier than the other psyc teachers.

Awful but easy. Gives her opinion as if it is fact - likes to give examples from her personal life for everything. Does not cite facts or studies for most examples. Most of class is spent watching pop psychology videos from the 80s. Attendance required, no homework. Most students sneak out after attendance, and I don't blame them.

Interesting facts brought up in lecture. Very opinionated, not entirely conducive to differing views. A feminist ("women are victims") but favors male students: lets them speak out of turn & make dismissive statements about other students' comments. Often ignores those who actually raise their hand for permission to speak. Ridiculously easy tests.

Grade based on multiple choice exams and a short autobiographical paper. She provided study guides which had everything covered by the exam. It's easy to earn an A if you know all the terms on the study sheet come test day. She often canceled class, sometimes unannounced. Lectures were a bit dull.

After reading the reviews I took Dr. Broderick. I enjoyed her class a lot. I personally found her to be helpful, I DID ASK QUESTIONS. Tests are 50 M choice questions and she drops the lowest score BUT NOT THE FINAL AS ONE STUDENT HAD WRITTEN. She gives accurate study guides and you only need to know the definations to get an A in her class. I

There are four multiple choice exams throughout the semester. She takes your three best scores and drops the lowest. She gives out study guides (which is basically like the actual test) in advance. She takes attendance, but it doesn't really matter if you show up or not. Everything on the tests you'll find in the book. She cancels class sometimes!

Diane totally KILLED my interest in Psychology! All she does is stand up at the front of the class and ramble for an hour. Only decent part is there's never homework and only 4 tests a semester.

No homework,4 exams.She takes the higher three exams' average. Boring in class, almost sleep!She gave notes(Vocabulary)for the exams,you have to read the book and find the explanations. Sometimes no class!She just talking and talking in class. Exams are super easy if you remember all the vocabulary explanations. Easy get A if you study!

Take her if you take Psyc for fun: 3 MC tests on definitions straight from the book. No HW. Students' attendances are mandatory but she ends the class way earlier half the time. She doesn't like questions. Easy A but you'll suffer in higher level classes

Probably one of the worst professors I've ever had. She cancelled many classes and was a bore to listen to. Total scatterbrain.

The textbook was used in combination with the lectures. Though the lectures were not necessarily too entertaining we're not really there to be entertained anyway right? Information is straight out but there are videos, medical stories/news and her own personal touches that keep the class going. Not too easy or hard.

Easy class, you could just read the textbook and ignore the class and probably get an A. I for one didnt read the textbook nor listened, and I'm getting a high C or low B. Not very open to debate or questions that challenge anything she says, which is annoying because it seems like she takes very subjective things the textbook says for truths.

UGH, awful! I got an A in the class, so it's not sour grapes--she's just the most scattered teacher. Would start number lists "there's five things...blah blah" you'd get the first two, class ends, the next day no mention of the next three items she was going on about--not in the book, either. Tests: what SHE thinks she said, not really said.
