    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a typical entry level 101 course on psychology. I took it online, and we were required to do a weekly activity based on the reading and then had a test every few weeks alongside weekly discussion questions. We also wrote a few essays. This course follows right along with the book. As long as you read the assigned readings each week and complete the required assignments, you're guaranteed to do well.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of psychology including units such as: sleep, basic neurology, learning, and the sensory system

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the assigned chapters each week and you're guaranteed to do well!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend taking this course because it's such an amazing class. You learn about different parts of the body. The teacher is amazing. She explains her lesson very well. She doesn't just "teach and go" she's very hands on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being in class and doing hands on activities. Getting involved with everyone in the class. It wasn't just lectures all class period.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study!!! Do not take this course if you're not serious about further your education. This class a great learning experienc, so give it your all. That means take time to read the book, study your notes for at least 15 minutes every night.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! The textbook was interesting and didn't require an exorbitantly excessive amount of reading. The group forum discussions were on present-day topics and I have already been able to use the information I learned in everyday advice and conversations.

    Course highlights:

    This course was an excellent introduction to Psychology and definitely left me desiring to learn more and study the topic further. The teacher was very quick to respond to my questions and she gave adequate notice and overviews of what information would be on tests. My favorite part of the course was the general textbook readings and the group discussion forums. Also, there were several essays on controversial topics which I greatly enjoyed researching and writing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You most definitely need the textbook and I would highly recommend taking notes- especially for distinguishing theories and memorizing definitions. You must study or you will not pass. There are a few essays, too, which she graded generously.
