Comment: Regier was an okay professor for this course. He made the entire focus of the course revolve around the philosophical aspect of cog sci. I didn't feel like this class was a good survey of what cognitive science really is. The homework was a little tedious and tricky, and his exams were all true/false questions (why? i dont know). Overall, it was a pretty easy class.

Comment: Professor Regier is the head of the cognitive science department, hence he's incredibly passionate about the subject and strives to make it accessible and interesting to everyone. Lectures are very interesting, but there's a lot of assigned reading of varying actual relevance/importance. Midterms were quite difficult; He really expects you to KNOW the material (memorizing names and their associated accomplishments). The two or three assignments were laughably easy. The in-class quizzes are worth 25% of your grade (more than the final!) and will dumpster your grade if you miss them.

Comment: This was a fascinating class, and overall, I really enjoyed it. However, the homework assignments did not make much sense. The midterms and the final were fairly easy, but not much information on grading is released. There is not too much reading; the workload is definitely manageable, and there were a lot of guest lectures.

Comment: Solid (but not stellar) performance on midterms. Missed a few points on the quizzes and got a C in the class. Final was True/False. No information on test curves. Grading was very inconsistent. GSIs had no clue. Avoid this class!

Comment: Class material was fascinating and the professor was very eager in lectures, however prepare to be docked points left and right for no good reason. Even missing a few points on the quizzes will severely drop your grade. You will get points taken off for small assignments. Doing well on the midterms/final is less important than trying to keep track of those little points you're losing. Most of the GSIs didn't know the material.

Comment: Regier is very passionate about Cog Sci and is a great professor. His lectures were engaging (most of the time) and well-organized (he posts the lecture slides on bSpace). I found the readings to be a tad difficult, but he usually addresses the important points in them the next day. It's good to at least try the readings so some of the lecture material is familiar, as he does tend to talk pretty fast. I agree with an earlier student's post about there being too much computer science. I would have been more interested if it included more psychology. The exams are not too hard, as long as you study!!

Comment: Okay so obviously, I think he's an awesome professor. Taking Cognitive Science with him had its ups and downs though. Pro: He is enthusiastic about the topic and tries hard to capture all the different fields. He is generally a neutral professor when it comes to opinion on the material so this lets you choose what you think is a side that you agree with more. His midterms are generally straightforward if you have kept up with reading and such. He mainly focuses on true and false, there is also some short answers that knocked some people around. Nonetheless, if you manage to get no lower than a C on his midterms I GUARANTEE no lower than a B in the class because his final is SUPER EASY!!! Three pages of true or false, I kid you not. My study strategy was read, do some group reviews, and talk to him and your GSIs =) Cons: The one thing that I noticed with him was that his Philosophy side really showed itself in this class. I learned SO much about philosophy that it was ridiculous. I actually used what I learned from this class to do my Philosophy HW, no joke. However, if you just do your thing you'll realize that it doesn't really matter and he really does try to get as much diversity as he can.

Comment: Great class! I would suggest taking C1 when he is teaching it. He is clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about the subject. He is a great lecturer. He is also very approachable during office hours. Exams are fair. Even if you don't go into Cog Sci, you will get a lot from the class. The guest lectures are good. Take it.

Comment: focused too much on mathematical and computer science-y things. i took this class as an intro to understanding brain and cognition but ended up learning more about philosophy and comp sci related things.

Comment: This class was very difficult, but I loved the material. Terry's lectures were great. Everyone was engaged every lecture thanks to his humor and love for cognitive science. Unfortunately, the exams were very difficult. The first midterm was very easy and had a curve which worked against most students, and the second midterm was extremely hard and was not curved. Although I did not get an A, I still believe this is a great course and I don't regret taking it with Regier even though his exams were very difficult.

Comment: This professor was very possibly the best I have had at this school. His lectures were very detailed and he expressed a great amount of enthusiasm for the subject. The tests were fairly difficult but help from GSIs and Regier was encouraged and well provided.

Comment: Regier is a terrific professor. I was considering Cog Sci as a major, and though I learned that it wasn't exactly my cup of tea, it certainly wasn't Regier's fault. His lectures are clear, interesting and extremely easy to follow, he puts all his powerpoint slides online the night before, and he is generally very helpful to all students. There are a few easy assignments (section is a complete waste of time) and tests are super easy if you study the slides. Overall, I do recommend this class for people who are interested in cog sci, Regier is as good as it gets when it comes to teaching.

Comment: Regier is AMAZING!! He obviously loves the material and finds ways to teach it interactively if he can. Tests are very fair and the review sheet given before the midterms/final are pretty extensive and pretty much exactly what you need to know. Very few homework assignments and you can skip most of the reading (I just read the main cog sci book to review the lectures).

Comment: The class is great if you like cogsci. I thought it was going to be more legit science based, but there was a lot more theory and stuff than expected, which i didn't enjoy. Section is a complete waste of time, other than getting assignments, but attendance is a part of your grade unfortunately. Regier is a very humble professor, and teaches well. TONS of guest lectures.

Comment: Totally awesome. This is the best class I've taken at Cal. I learned a lot about the subject material (which was super interesting), and also got great practice reading, critiquing, and proposing articles and experiments. Prof Regier is a great teacher and very accessible in office hours and otherwise outside of class. He's a great person to have long theoretical conversations with and does an amazing job of bringing out interesting discussion during class. I almost never do reading for any of my classes, but the articles we read here were so interesting and relevant that I was able to really get into it. He grades pretty harshly on the weekly responses to the reading, but I actually liked that because it motivated me to try a lot harder than I normally need to. Class was very engaging.

Comment: The single best non-technical class I've taken at Berkeley. You will actually learn how to read and write scholarly papers and be able to hold a conversation about the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis without looking like an idiot.
