Chapter 12 1. What is attribute substitution? Give an example.
A strategy in which you rely on easily assessed information as a proxy for the information you really need. (ex: choosing an efficient route to work you might ask when I went down 4th street how often was I late? Type of availability heuristic)
This class was tough.
He is a very nice guy. This is supposed to be an in-class lecture. However, he tells us that we must watch the lecture online and take a quiz prior to each class. Every in-class lecture is three hours and the WHOLE TIME he just forces questions out of us so that he can answer them. He does not actually lecture. This is not supposed to be a hybrid class, but you are putting way more hours into it than you should. The quizzes are so difficult and have had many mistakes in them. He goes by "what the best choice" is since there is more than one right answer sometimes.
All I can really say is that he was a nice guy. Another thing he did that was helpful was letting us fill out a page of notes before each exam. However, those didn't do much.

Advice for students:
You just have to be super disciplined and ready to teach yourself to excel in this class honestly. The lectures aren't too engaging since they're online so if you're able to maintain focus, then you can take the course. There's no homework. There are weekly quizzes, exams and a group project. If you know you slack off or don't give it your absolute all, this might not be the professor for you.
