This class was tough.
This is 100% the hardest course that you will probably ever take. The best advice that I could possibly offer is WORK ON YOUR FINAL RESEARCH PROPOSAL THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH THE CLASS. With Dr. Arcus, especially, you need to catch on really quickly. Do not get behind in this course for one week or you will be screwed. If you have pets, a job, a lover, or friends, they will suffer for a bit during the time you take the class. This is to be expected. Do not take this online if you have not ever taken an Online Class before.
VERY very dense material. Learned a lot about how to have a critical eye and how to really look at the information that is given to you. You get exposed to a lot of different and real psychological studies and critically interpret them. So, valuable skills, but the material is extremely difficult sometimes. Professor Arcus is VERY tough, you should not take this class unless you have thoroughly read and understand the course description.

Advice for students:
Again, get started right away. Do not fall behind. Do not take this online if you have not taken an online course before. Ask for help, Professor Arcus is extremely extremely willing to help. The syllabus is scary, but it will be ok. The e-Reader version of the textbook will save you hundreds.
