    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I love this professor. I took him for Intro to Psychology in my first semester and Honors Brain and Behavior alongside Honors Abnormal Psychology in my second semester. He is a phenomenal teacher who loves his field and the class was always interesting. As long as one studies the powerpoints the quizzes are a breeze, although you will have to know a lot!

    Course highlights:

    I liked that he had powerpoints, it condenses the information together and you can print them all out before the class even starts, allowing you time to edit them to your liking and go over them. All the information needed is presented right in there. And he was always clear and easy to understand when he taught.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like psychology, definitely take this professor. But don't think that it's just about knowing the names of mental illnesses -- you learn about psychologists and how people are diagnosed and you need to know the criteria which would classify someone as having a specific disorder.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course it gives a general survey of the types of disorders in psychology as described in the DSM-V and opens your eyes to the abnormal side of psychology.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the varying types of psychological disorders and what constitutes a diagnosis of certain psychological disorders.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do everything the professor suggests in order to be successful in the course and that will be your result.
