    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it's a good introductory course. It covers all of the basics of psychology. The class teaches you the basic techniques that psychologist use to treat a student, the history of psychology, the basic psychology terms, and specifics on some mental disorders patients may have.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the final project, which is a group project about a mental disorder like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. I learned the general idea about what psychology was all about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the extra credit she assigns you, and the study guides. The study guides help you get a good grade on the test. The material she goes over in class is directly from the book, but go to class the lectures are worth it. Their are somethings that the book covers that you don't need to know for the tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She gets you engaged in everything, your learning about the brain so she'll give you tennis balls and have you pass them around like neurons. She tells stories that relate to real life situations which help you connect what you're learning to something you know. Last she tests your knowledge not only on a test but by seeing if you really know the content.

    Course highlights:

    Everything about Psychology, I had only had a high school class before this and now I feel prepared for the next Psych class. Some highlights include the brain, memories, classical conditioning, various types of stimulus, as well as conducting experiments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you're involved in the class, she grades on how well you know the material so if you're involved she notices you're paying attention. Make sure to study a week before a test to let all the information sink in.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Great course! Gives you great insight of the human mind and development of the brain until about the age of 25 which is actually where most scientists say your brain has finished developing. My teacher was great and always made it easy to make you want to be in class to learn the next thing.

    Course highlights:

    Knowledge of mental diseases like Schizophrenia, Bipolar 1 and 2, and ways of dealing with major depression. You also learn all the different parts of the human anatomy that's contributes to psychological functions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen, Write, Study, Repeat! Make sure that you go to every class, it makes it a lot easier to stay up to date with everything that is covered in class. Never over work yourself, but make sure you are never satisfied with your work ethic until your final letter grade.
