PSYC 335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

VERY DIFFICULT! You're reading the whole book (and the chapters are like 30-40 pages long). She also doesn't go through everything in class, so bring your laptop and type EVERYTHING! However, she does give a lot of help. You can be tutored by her TAs and/or go to study sessions they have before every exam. 4 exams and extra credit with attendance.

The class is a lot of material, yes; but this is the case with any professor. Brewster may only go through half in class but that's because no one has time to go through all of them and I loved that she went so in depth with what she did cover in class because she made it interesting & gave a good picture of what some disorders really look like.

PSYC335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Don't take this class! She is a sweetheart, but her class is so ridiculous. Tests are hard and cover too much material--most of which you won't learn in class anyways. I would definitely take it with a different professor!!

Psyc 335 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Too much! This class should be a 400 level class. Material isn't difficult but there is just so much! She only covers half of it in class and you're left on your own to do the rest. Only take if you are really interested and you don't have a heavy course load.

Dr. Brewster is a great instructor. This class involves a lot of reading, but as long as you do the reading and study you will receive a good grade. She is interesting, funny, and fair. None of her exams have any trick questions or anything used to confuse you. She gives study guides that tell you exactly what your exam will include.
