Reviews and tips for PSY248

This is the worst unit I've ever done at Macquarie. Unfortunately it's mandatory for my degree. The content is difficult (even as someone who usually does well at other subjects) and the lecturer is incredibly rude and condescending. If you ask a question because you don't understand something, he will mock you. He switches between going over easy revision content at a glacial pace to whizzing through difficult concepts and equations which makes it incredibly hard to keep up. Luckily I had a decent tutor, which helps somewhat, but even the best tutor can't compensate for the poor form of the lecturer.

An unit that held its second test (10%) on the final day of semester just before exam day, with the result of one of the assignment made available during the exam period, 10 days after the actual date for the final exam!!! Lectures mainly consist of lecturer asking questions to students that they cannot answer most of the time because students have not learnt them yet... It's not like a review lecture (like PSY236) where students were exposed to the material beforehand... You ask the lecturer questions, he won't direct or lead you or encourage you to think about the question differently or correctly; but he would let you stew and make mistakes... Hopeless unit, hopeless education system, it's all a scam, those who pay more receive more tuition system in Australia.

Let me start by saying that this unit is not easy and it is a lot of work. At the same time, however, it is extremely rewarding if you're willing to put in the time. I did this unit over summer 2015/2016. It was hard to keep up to date with all the lectures (sometimes 7.5 per week). If you do this unit, I strongly recommend attending the PAL sessions like I did. If it wasn't for the PAL sessions, I don't know where I'd be right now. Summary: very challenging unit, but it is rewarding because the harder you work the more you understand and the better your results will be.

Not only filled with mind-numbing content, but also delivered by a boring and incredibly condescending lecturer.

I had an incredibly difficult time staying awake during lectures. The lecturer may have well been speaking another language.
