Always Do the Reading
Pretty easy, overall.
Prof. Weissbuch was great! Not only did he explain the material well, but he also had a sense of humor and shared great stories during class. We watched a few movies that were several years old, but they were good quality and added to the experience. Your grade consisted of a few papers, tests, and an exam.
My favorite was the social norm project where we were challenged to do something in public that was not considered 'normal' and write a paper about it. We were very creative!

Advice for students:
READ THE TEXT! Attend class, take notes, and READ. He doesn't necessarily cover everything in the assigned reading during his lectures. Rather, he explains the more complicated topics because he operates under the belief that you should be doing the assigned reading and if you don't understand something, you'll ask. You're only hurting yourself by not at least skimming the text. And there's always a question on the exams about various studies mentioned in the book that he doesn't mention in class - it's a way for him to see if you read or not.
