Student type - reluctant «I am only taking this course because it is mandatory. I took psychology because I am interested in topics like personnality, psychopathology, etc. and I don’t understand why I am forced to take perception». Student type – open & curious «I want to learn more about psychology’s different sub-fields before deciding if I want to pursue a career in an area related to psychology ». Student type – enthusiastic «I am generally interested by topics related to cognitive neuroscience and I think that perception may be exactly the kind of course that I was looking for when I enrolled in psychology». Student type - scared «Perception looks like a very difficult course with lots of anatomy to remember and complex maths … I don’t have a very strong scientific background». Who are you?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
