Psy 208 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This is a great class. Her expectations are very clear, and as long as you do the readings, the homework and quizzes are easy.

MHS 250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This class on autism was very interesting for someone who knew nothing about ASD. That said, Sandberg knows her stuff yet the class is more of a survey than real nitty-gritty material. It's a pretty easy A, and the work load is some of my lowest at Vandy. I wish Sandberg had lectured more but instead there is a lot of fruitless group discussion.

PSY 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Sandberg is very witty and easy going. Liked listening to her lectures, although she often goes on rants or tangents that are interesting, but not relevant. Tests are very difficult, so just skim the textbook every night with online homework and you'll be fine. More work than anticipated, but enjoyable class. Made me wanna major in Psych

Psych 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Dr. Sandberg, in a sense, ruined my interest in psychology. A seemingly easy course of study (intro psych) was made difficult by her impossibly worded test questions (each multiple choice with 5 options). I recommend studying from the text/website because her class lectures are painful and she always fails to properly operate the projector.

Gen Psy 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Sandberg kept the class interesting. Often times we would watch movies and videos in class. Sometimes I felt as if the class period was pointless though because the tests were textbook based. There is a good bit of work on psych portal every night. Also, the tests cover A LOT of information, so start studying like a week in advance.

PSY 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Test questions are really vague but she provides a lot of grade cushioning. Study the lecture slides she posts online

PSY 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Dr. Sandberg is witty and articulate. Class is not mandatory, but you should go because the lectures include material that will be on the tests, and she shows clips of videos that are quite interesting. To prepare for the tests, practice the Learning Curve tests that are online-- they are key to getting an A.

PSYCH 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Sandberg is an interesting woman...she is whiny and somewhat harsh and unapproachable. Despite this, the lectures are interesting (lots of graphics and cool videos) and she keeps it light and funny for the most part. The homework is pretty mandatory, and is kind of busy work. Tests are WAY harder than the class itself, beware! Keep up w/ reading.
