Most questions will come from lectures and associated sections in the text, but some questions will come from parts of the text not covered in lectures ( these wont be too specific; instead, they will be more general, testing major concepts ) . You are not responsible for “interesting facts” listed for major psychologists or specific details from videos ( these are only meant to reinforce and facilitate understanding of primary concepts ) . Remember to bring your questions to class: questions # 1 - 5. I will select 2 of those questions for you to hand in to be marked. And remember to bring a big pink scantron.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
