PSYC 4100
COGNITIVE PSYC
4****
Pros: If you go to class and take notes from her powerpoint (she gives you time to basically write down everything from each slide if you want) and just review them before the class you will make an A. The book is definitely necessary though. There are 5 random assignments during the semester which are just attendance checks. If you get all 5 you get extra credit only 4 are necessary though. She makes class interesting with videos and illustrating concepts in everyday life!
Cons: Have to come to class to get notes, doesn't post any online.

5*****
Pros: I came into this class not expecting much because it was a large class and it was strictly PowerPoint and lectures, but Dr. Dyckman grew on me. First of all, she is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and she is very good at explaining everything. She seemed really timid at first, but she opened up by the end of the semester and I thought she was pretty funny. She plays a lot of video clips and supplements the lectures with interesting activities.
Cons: Large class and she probably won't remember you.
The class is essentially 4 exams, a couple of attendance checks throughout the semester (one is extra credit), and 4 page article critique. I like the 4 exam format. I did pretty badly on the first exam, but I was able to leave with an A because I did well on the rest and came to class everyday. You definitely need the book for this class.

Pros: Best part of class is going to see actual brain imaging devices. I really enjoyed coming to this class and it gave me a refreshing break from other courses. This class is manageable. I was taking 20 course hours when I took this class.
Cons: none

PSYC 3900H
HONORS SEM PSYC
4****
Pros: Very knowledgable and personable. I was often impressed by how up-to-date she was in her field. Any time a student would mention an article or story they'd read, she'd read it too.



Leads great class discussions that make the class enjoyable.
Cons: Some of the test questions are out of nowhere, and I read the textbook and took pretty good notes. It can be hard to take notes during lecture. She has a LOT to say. Download her presentations beforehand so you aren't wasting time copying that material.
The course is well-organized, so you always know what's going on. I was a non-science major and was able to keep up and learn a lot. She's very nice and willing to help and explain anything in further detail.



The tests are fine and the project is meant to be a grade booster. Just make sure to keep up with the case studies in the "other" textbook.

5*****
Pros: 2 article summaries (2 pages)

Easy final presentation

2 easy quizzes

Hands-on
Cons: Not interesting if you aren't interested in the topic
I loved this class! You get to see three types of brain imaging techniques first-hand. The content is a general introduction, and isn't hard to grasp. Dr. Dyckman is really helpful as well. The class is set up so that you can get as much out of it as you want, but it's definitely easy to pass.

5*****
Pros: She's very easy going and friendly. Lab time is interesting and you should definitely volunteer if you can.
Cons: The class is dull sometimes because the material is boring.
Your grade is based off three two-page papers, participation, two quizzes, and a final poster project.
