Psych 21 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

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

PSYC 21 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

PSYC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

PSYCSECT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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

PSYC21 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

Psych21 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

PSYC1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

PSY1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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
