Comment: You MUST attend lecture or buy ASUC notes--he hides all the critical information on the bspace slides with questions like 'What did we talk about in lecture?'.
Exams are fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and multiple choice--not difficult, but does require actual studying, vs. cramming the night before. Weekly assignments and the final essay will boost your grade. You should read the actual textbook too--it's a little conceptual and it cites an ungodly amount of studies.
One of the best classes I've taken--material was fascinating, and I actually read the book for fun.
