    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking PSY101, because it covers interesting material that can be applied to the life of a student. How to handle stress, how to recognize that you are stressed, yoga/zen moves to improve one's self-confidence, etc. However, I would not recommend the instructor Brandon Atkins for two reasons; 1. All he did was talk about himself and what he does for the community and his medical issues that he's overcoming. 2. He is an easy "A". There was no challenge given in this class and his grading doesn't make any sense. I only took away from the class what I read in the textbook and from the substitute teacher that taught three different times.

    Course highlights:

    The textbook offered a lot of insight to behavioral issues, drug and alcohol abuse symptoms, why people feel the need to use language, reverse psychology, and how to recognize and deal with stress. The substitute teacher, Mr. Pacheco, taught heavily on the alcohol and drug abuse. He presented a lot of scientific facts and videos, but he also shared his personal experience with drugs. His insight and honesty gave me a whole new perspective on why people turn to these chemicals for comfort. Very fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend taking PSY101, but not with Brandon Atkins, unless you're just looking for an easy "A."

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, I would recommend this course especially by this teacher. Though this course was long and very informative Dr. Overland made it bearable and interesting. One learns a lot about the mind, themselves and emotions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about my brain a lot. I learned about what drugs and alcohol do to affect it. How my brain starts as a child and goes on to develop until death. I learned about how the brain copes with many different situations and experiences as well as learning about myself.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come on time, don't sleep in class or else you'll regret it . Above all, pay attention and certainly take detailed notes for they come very very handy in quizzes and tests.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course with this teacher because he is very interactive with the class and makes you understand the material by incorporating it into logical/everyday thinking.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the "Tyranny of the Shoulds" and it was mind blowing!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE CHAPTERS! This class is based 99% on what was read in the chapter. Pop quizzes, in class interaction, etc. If you do not read the chapter ahead of time, you will be lost!
