Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Aug. 7, 2015 Grade Received: N/A

Overall: LOVED the class, found the it very interesting and informative. Whiting tries to engage students by constantly asking questions, a few of which are worthwhile but most of which are completely random and meant to make the class "different." It works for the first day, but his schtick gets old pretty fast. Still, the topic was interesting enough that I enjoyed it.

Class mechanics: 1 midterm, 1 final, 1 paper. As mentioned, read the textbook!!! And pay attention to the topics listed in the study guides. Lecture material ends up being maybe 1-2 questions on the test at best, so attending lecture is pretty much optional although there was usually a good turnout. Paper wasn't too bad, it's mostly research-based (summarizing current research) so just choose a topic that has enough to write about for 8-10 pages.

The lectures were entertaining and helped reinforce concepts, but the most important thing about this class is the book. Always read the book. The exams are based on the book, and you have to memorize everything he lists on the study guide, and youll be ok. Otherwise, if you rely only on lecture notes, you will not succeed in this course. I made the mistake of skimming the book and studying the lecture notes only for the first midterm, which was a bad idea, given that you are tested on the book (about 80% of the test is book material). This might be a bit difficult to adjust to at first given that the 111 series doesnt test you on the book, but once you have the book memorized you are set for the exams. Also, make sure you go to office hours for the term paper, you cannot BS your way through it. It takes a long time to write a high quality review article.
