Comment:
Her lectures are recorded but can be up to an hour. Pay close attention to her lectures bc her test are based on her lectures and examples. Try not to miss a due date for homework bc it will cost you at the end. She offered extra credit at the end. Very easy going class as long u keep up w/ lectures and homework.

Comment:
Took her online class as an elective based on reviews. The homework is Pearson with the quizzes after each section and its easy, but it's important to not miss one because she is not forgiving on deadlines. Lectures are basically what the book says, but most of her tests are done on lectures. Exams were difficult for me, since its on every 5-6chps.

Can't go wrong on this one! There's an unexpected change in the syllabus due to the pandemic. Ended up having a 2000-word essay instead of three exams.

This class was fairly easy, she uses Pearson so we had weekly assignments online (personality questionnaires and chapter quizzes). Make sure you stay on top of due dates because I missed one and it brought my grade down, you're able to skim through chapters and still do decent on quizzes so don't worry about that. Overall interesting class

Comment:
Dr. Twenge is the most accomplished Professor in the Psych. dept. if not all of SDSU. With that, I was excited for this class. Even though she is an expert in her field, it becomes clear, early, she is operating on autopilot. Due to subpar lectures, I opted to study from home. Read the chapters, pp slides on bb, and take notes and you'll get an A

I really enjoyed this class. The material is interesting and Twenge is a great prof. The class isn't too hard if you take good notes when reading the textbook and in class during her lectures. Tests are fair and not tricky.

There was a face to face class on Tuesdays and online videos on Thursdays. Book is mandatory in order to do Hw and questionnaires. Attending lectures, hw and watching videos should be enough but reading the book will definitely help. Professor doesn't seem to care about class, but explains topics well. Go to class she asks things on exam about it.

Really interesting class and not too hard to get credit. We have 3 exams and 1 final. Worst grade of the 4 exams is dropped meaning if you like your first 3 exam scores you can skip the final. In the online book there are journals, quizzes, and questionaries that you must complete for points as you read through the chapters.

She has mandatory online book work which isn't difficult but is ZERO help for studying for exams. Her online lectures just repeats what is in the book, but then her exam material is from random things mentioned in the in class lecture. I found inconsistencies with what she says on class vs. what's written in the book. Would not take again. No curve

awful awful awful do not take this class. Half of the lectures were posted online, along with all of the homework. Teacher got numerous complaints throughout the semester about problems with online homework and did little to nothing about it. She is definitely more interested in her research studies than her students.

Online portion was a mess. The app and the website showed different content, it was not clear which journals were due, points were missing, questions/answers would be wrong on quizzes and you were still expected to leave the correct answer for credit. I did NOT attend class except for test days and some test content was from class lecture.

Dr. T seems more into research than teaching. She goes way to fast on the lectures and sometimes class time is wasted. Tests are super tough and long. That's why you have to read and attend lectures. There are also online assignments due and personality questionnaires which were interesting. I wish she was more engaging to the class.

Love this class, my fav of the semester. Have to read the online book because they're are quizzes throughout the chapter, easy points that help boost your grade. Learned a lot about my own personality since you take a lot of questionnaires then learn about what is measured. Going to class was easy, she was organized and always showed funny videos.

Lectures are interesting and homework and online quizzes are fairly straightforward and as long as you read are easy to do well on. The problem comes in with the Exams as they are nowhere near big picture and are more obscure and specific to examples that seem insignificant. Additionally, I emailed several times and received no response.

Comment:
No study guide. Does NOT post PPT slides. Goes too fast during slides so you are not able to write down all material. I read each chapter, aced each quiz and studied for the exam. I usually get A's & with the amt of effort I put into studying, the exam was not fair. Got B- when trying super hard. Exams are more complex than what she teaches

3 tests and a cumulative final. You can drop any of them. Assigns personality packets where you fill out questionnaires and learn about yourself, easy and interesting. Tests were not big picture and conceptual, it was more "how many weird details can you remember." Overall, interesting subject, bad tests

Comment:
This class was tough. She doesn't offer study guides and her lectures are long and boring. If you read the book, study the learning objectives and the vocal then you can get an A in this class. Make sure you do personality questionnaires, easy points! There are 3 exams and 1 cumulative final, but your lowest exam is dropped.
