1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

...If you don't get an A in his class then I don't know what to tell you.. He curves the exams VERY generously AND you can get up to 4 extra credit points on your final grade by completing a few more credits in the research component (which is easy). Take this class if you want to get straight B- on the exams and still get an A.

PYSCH 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

REALLY HARD. If you are not good at neurobiology you will rarely know what he is talking about. However he does give a nice curve to the class at the end of the semester.

PSYC 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Swadlow is an interesting character nut I had a difficult time following him. The material is so general and he jumped all over the place. He exams are extremely difficult and his class is not worth the stress. It is a very difficult elective with him. Switch professors if possible

PSYC 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

Harvey's tests wouldn't be so difficult if he didn't word every question differently than he explains it in lecture. His exams are 80% lecture, 20% book, so going to class is definitely a must. The lab sections are super easy, and the experiment credits give you up to 3 extra points on the final. Not a horrible class, just not so easy.

PSYCH 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Loved listening to him lecture. He doesn't read verbatim off of each slide like many professors. He curves at the end, so my 81 became a B+. I never studied for any of the exams, never took notes, and I don't own the book. I did; however, go to every class and listen. That should get you a B+.
