Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it's interesting and allows the students to apply theories learned to both themselves and to another person. One assignment was to conduct an interview with someone about their life experience (etc) and then apply two different theorists' theories to their life. However, the course is over a span of eight weeks which required a lot of outside research on the theorists and their theories.
I enjoyed learning about the different theorists' ideas on personality development. I liked that my professor incorporated many different personality tests as samples for the class to take. It was helpful to be able to take the type of test that we were learning about in class.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of your weekly assignments. If you fall behind, it will become overwhelming very quickly and make you feel like you're drowning. In my course, the small weekly writing assignments became necessary for an overall final paper. The weekly assignments are tedious, but help in the long-run. My course was only eight weeks long, so that meant I had to do a lot of research on my own time about the theorists and their theories of development. Simply viewing powerpoints will not be in depth enough to fully grasp the concepts.
