Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The name psychopathology may sound complicated but simply put this course focuses on mental illness. I highly recommend this class and this professor for a few reasons. First is that the text book was actually helpful. It was clear, easy to read or skim and really gave you all the information you'd need for class discussion. Prof. Rukert bases her classwork around discussion. She is straight forward and easy going. Read the text book and come ready to talk, share ideas, experiences, and ask questions. If you study the text book you will get an A.
The highlights of this course is that the professor provided just the right amount of information needed. You weren't left guessing about what you;d be tested on and at the same time you were not over loaded in work. I really learned how to realistically evaluate someone mental health which was very cool because it was giving me a feel of the real world working in the mental health field.

Advice for students:
Buy the text book and read it. The text book is written very well and the professor is going to want you coming in prepared and referencing the text book chapters. If you can apply what the book says to the discussions in class you will stand out as a good student.
