professor hummel is one of the best professors that i've had. i actually looked forward to going to his class; and this guy knows his stuff. however, his grading system is outrageous. but, he wants for you to come away with something from this class and that manifests itself through his grading system--he expects alot from his students. Even though I earned a grade of C in his class, I feel like I earned it and is very satisfying. Moreover, I already committed to doing research with one of dr. hummel's grad. students for the next two quarters. In short, I definitely reccomend for anyone to take psych 85. it is one of those classes that will change the way you think about your existence. and by the way, dr. hummel is a very kind and humble man.
Hummel is a GREAT professor. I never submit stuff on here but I enjoyed him/his class so much I was inspired to come post.
Hummel is my favorite professor I've had at UCLA thus far. He knows a lot about the subject matter and really makes sure everyone understands the material before moving on. The class was hard (especially for a non-computer/science based guy), but Hummel's lectures were so interesting I really got into it. You can tell he really cares about cog sci and he's a really cool guy too which just makes the class that much more enjoyable. The material can be intimidating but he is always there to help. His classes are always very informal which makes the class more layed-back and makes it less intimidating to ask questions in class. Definitly take a class with him.
Professor Hummel is great. All his lectures are organized into detailed Power Point presentations, which he posts on the web. On exams, he usually asks about the "big picture", not picky details. So the best way to prepare is to understand concepts, not memorize facts. Reviewing the lectures is most helpful, but on both exams he asked about some specific items from the reading. Those questions did not contribute much to the score, however. So you should do the reading, but don't pore over it before tests.
I never lost interest in class because he is so enthusiastic and funny. If you have questions, or just want to chat about things related to the class, I strongly recommend you visit his office. Both times I talked to him, he seemed more than happy to answer my questions. Definitely take a class with Professor Hummel if you have the chance.
