Comment:
Curious fellow. He'll call for commentary on a viewpoint only to flat-out tell the pupil they're irrevocably wrong, and himself right. (Never bothered me, everyone laughed) BUT... he'll explain his thought processes and the mass of data he's based his decision upon. In that moment, you'll realize you are oblivious to the world around you Epic class

Comment:
Really found this instructor unbearably self-involved and patriarchially overbearing. Much of the material was poorly presented and instructor did not seem to be able to form a professional, engaging relationship with me or other students. He really should retire, IMO.

Dr. Terrace is a wonderful professor and the leading expert in his field. His experiements, approve of them or not, were groundbreaking and contributed to the field of study. Overall, an intellectually hungry man who holds his field of study, and science in general, above all else.

Comment:
One of the most inspiring professors I've ever had. Definitely go to the coffee hour (Entenmann's chocolate donuts)! The lectures were great, and Professor Terrace engaging and helpful during office hours. His experiments with Nim Chimpsky were amazing. I feel fortunate to have been able to study with him.

Comment:
There isn't a worse choice to teach an intro psych course. To say that the book was awful doesn't do it justice. Several lectures were devoted specifically to how cool he is for having proved Noam Chompsky wrong.

Comment:
The textbook was honestly the WORST thing I have ever seen in my entire life. It was completely disappointing to be exposed to something like that - especially at Columbia. Herb's lectures were unclear, and he was not approachable at all.
