Comment:
I took Social Psyc in the summer with her. I appreciated her weekly quizzes because it helped prep me for the final. Yes she's pretty hard (her written questions are really demanding but MC is easy) but if you're willing to put in some effort for a good grade, she's no problem at all. Very nice person overall.

Sweet lady, her class was fairly boring and made me not wanting to listen in class. Notes are very detailed yet difficult to use as it was not organized.

Very sweet lady. I took her 205 and 308 class. Material overlapped SIGNIFICANTLY so it was like taking the same course twice. Her notes are among the best I've had and are rather self-explanatory. she won't pull any surprises on you during exams. Found her classes to be relatively easy -- as long as you study!

Comment:
Nice prof.class attendance is necessary as almost half of the questions on test will be from her lectures.Tests are fair except she marks the written questions really hard.You have to provide her with details.Not the most interesting course ,at times it could get boring and repititive.But the prof does a good job .

I loved her; Classes were very interesting and go by super fast; Always asking if anyone has any questions; Exams were somewhat difficult, where studying and preparing is obviously a must; Average was around 65%, but it is very possible to get well above it, just put in some time and effort.

I thought that Dr. Watson was awful. She was so boring that I couldn't go to class. I memorized the textbook and did well in the class so, to sum up she is useless.

This course is really a lot of work. You need to know the text book inside and out to excel. Prof. Watson is very fair with what she tests on and helpful in office hours. It you are in her section, you are pretty well guaranteed that the marks will not be scaled down as she is one of the harder profs for psych (she said so herself!)

Comment:
She was a really good prof that definitely knew her stuff! Her tests were kind of hard, but it's all about how much studying you do, and whether you go to her lectures or not. She was also pretty hilarious at times and I just really enjoyed her as a prof! I'd definitely like to take another that she's teaching!

She gives some really interesting examples in lectures. Her lecture presentation is very clear and organized. Since there is only one paper each term, and everyone need to write with a partner, no need to struggle too much on it. The exams are hard but as long as you read every chapter of the textbook, you'll do very well.

Her exams are very fair. If you study all the stuff in her lecture, you can get above average. She is very helpful and kind professor who explains until you can understand! Don't hesitate to go to her office.

Wost class ever. Exams are soooo hard. If you dont understand the lecture you are screwed because she wrote the textbook for the class, so its the same wording and concepts she used in class. Seriously, dont take the class with the horrible horrible prof. Her tests are so random and hard, 50 ppl failed the class, it could be you too.

She is very nice and her lectures are interesting. She tries hard to get you to receive a good grade by posting up notes for lectures and practice exams on-line. If you've taken some sort of psyc class before, don't take this as it's too simple and you'll lose interest after the first couple of weeks. Otherwise, I'd recommend her.
