    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Butler is an absolutely amazing lecturer. That said, her exams are incredibly difficult. You have to study EVERYTHING to try and get a good grade: there are lecture slides (which she leaves things off of so be sure to attend class and take notes) and comprehensive reading assignments (Seriously, be ready to read). She posts practice quizzes online which she often pulls from for the exams. If you go to class and you're willing to put in a lot of time to keep up with material, it's a worthwhile class. The class has a total of 500 points: two projects, three exams, and then a final. !

    Course highlights:

    It was a really excellent intro course! It was just also incredibly hard. I particularly enjoyed the abnormal psychology unit which we did toward the end of the semester, but Dr. Butler has solid views on everything she teaches. I definitely feel prepared for the Psych courses I'll have to take later on in college.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READING! Seriously, I can't say this enough. I got really far behind in the reading before our third exam. I managed to get a B by reading all of the chapter summaries, making A LOT of flashcards, and doing practice quizzes (both the ones Butler posted and the ones in the book). Also, GO TO CLASS! You cannot pass this class if you don't attend. Butler doesn't grade on attendance, but she knows who comes to class on a regular basis and who doesn't. She leaves things out of the lecture notes she posts online: like important definitions that aren't in the textbook, and there will be questions on exams that line up with the things she removed from her online notes. If you go to class, you get all the notes you need in that regard. So yeah, GO TO CLASS, and DO THE READING. Those are my two takeaways to do well.
