I loved this class, it was so much fun and I learned so much from Professor Merrill! We had no finals or midterms, just the quizzes and it was all super easy. Her lectures are straightforward and take advantage of the extra credit! I will definitely retake her for my other Psyc requirement!

Comment:
Merrill is overrated, and covers up her disorganization with her enthusiasm for teaching. I mean, sure, if you want an easy A, take her. But there are other online, asynchronous PSYC 100 classes in SMCCD which would be MUCH easier. Merrill's much too enthusiastic and energetic. If you don't like to participate much, her class would be a pain.

I took her for PSYC 100 and 300. She's really good and reasonable with deadlines and homework. The only reservations I have are that in 100, her the first project is a lot of work, and the materialist teaching that the soul does not exist based on Phineas Gage is a controversial notion; which isn't consistent with what astronomy generally teaches.

I cannot stress enough how great Jennifer is as a teacher. The class overall is fairly easy, but that doesn't mean you don't learn the material. She manages to create assignments that are easy to to get As on, while still absorbing all the information. I would take her again in a heartbeat! Class online due to COVID-19

Caring professor. You can earn up to 20 points for extra credit, but you have a lot of options to choose from. Lots of HW. Attendance is mandatory. She is doing her best to engage you in the class. No final exam, but every chapter has its own quiz with 25 questions.

Sometimes... I want to drop out, but then I remember that there are teachers like Jennifer Merrill. Ive never had a teacher thats fully helped me grasp a concept, in such a fun and unique way of teaching. She makes classes so energizing, it makes you want to participate. 10/10

Took her Psychobiology class online this semester. Professor Merrill is by far the best professor I have had since online learning started. Zoom meetings were not mandatory but is extremely helpful and engaging and it feels almost as if we are in class. She is extremely organized and kind to her students and the workload is manageable.

Took this class spring 2020. Got to experience her in class and online once the pandemic hit. She's honestly super funny always keeps things interesting and theres never really much homework. Just do what she assigns and you will pass with an A.

So professor Merill is an amazing professor. She literally makes you fall in love with learning about psychology. Is not that her class is easy or that attending is mandatory, is the fact that you want to learn and not skip her class bc is so damn good. She feeds your brain! Thank you Professor!

Professor Merrill is definitely the best psychology professor in Skyline College, no matter which courses with her was so great and amazing experience. Listening in the class and do your homework, 3(or 4) exams are easy and fair for everyone, she has make up exam for miss. Talk to her if you feel lost, she is the best psychology professor for me.

Hands down one of my favorite Prof at Skyline!! I've taken her for two different psych classes! Her lectures are super clear and goes over the material before exams. There's lots of group work/partner work though. She's so easy to approach and I even got a psych related job through her always sending job opportunities

the best professor i've had this semester HANDS DOWN!! She really knows her material, is thorough with her lectures, provides study guides to help prepare for quizzes, overall an amazing teacher and I loved every second of her class. There's a lot of partner/groupwork, but it's simple and mostly insightful. A great morning teacher who cares!

I signed up for this class because I saw all the good reviews. I was amazed to find how kind and strong Prof. Merrill is as a teacher!! Pay attention in lectures, read online if you missed class, and do all homework assignments. Her workload is not too much and is fairly easy. Abide by this and you will pass the class with no problem!

I took Jennifers class 4yrs ago my first year out of HS, it didnt work out well especially as an 8am class. I took this again this past Spring and its safe to say my maturity helped me understand her class a whole lot better. She truly cares about her students and loves participation and feedback as well. Do take her class.
