Integration of Face and Brain
Fall 2017 - This was one of my favorite classes that I have taken at UCLA. Professor Zaidel is a great professor, and you can tell that she genuinely cares about her students' success in the class. The class is graded only on 3 25-question exams, so you need a 69/75 or higher to get an A (class is straight-scale). The tests are extremely fair. Everything in them is clearly covered in the lectures or in the assigned readings. The assigned readings were scientific studies relating to what was covered in class. There were only 2-3 readings assigned per exam. Lectures were clear and easy to understand. They are not posted online, so you need to make sure that you come to class everyday and take notes. Zaidel lectures at a steady pace, so getting all the information is not a problem at all. A lot of the material is actually quite interesting. Zaidel is passionate about the material, which makes the lectures more engaging. A lot of the material is supplemented by videos and references that help you remember. Outside of class, Professor Zaidel is helpful and welcoming of any questions you may have. I recommend taking this class. As long as you show up to class, take notes, and memorize everything covered, you will get an A.
