    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone who would like to gain a general understanding/overview of psychology. I also recommend it for those who could use a refresher from a general psychology class they have taken in high school.

    Course highlights:

    Taking this course allowed me to refresh my general knowledge from a class I had taken in high school. I also got to learn some new information and was able to get some more in depth information on topics I have already learned due to the greater amount of time a college course offers versus a high school class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure you pay attention. Reading the material the night before class and making a note of any questions you have. ALWAYS do any assignments given, and do any given extra credit work even if you might not need it. Be sure to participate in class!

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely beneficial to me as a student. Although the material was challenging, the professor was able to present the content in a way that was easier to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of information that was helpful for the major in which I am currently studying. Developmental topic along with the history of psychology were discussed within this class. Aside from those two major components, an abundant amount of other information was learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to study and to take the material seriously. It is a difficult class that cannot be pushed aside. Also, reading the chapters definitely helped me when studying for tests, but do not try to cram all of the reading in during one study session. There is too much information in each chapter to do this.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is both challenging and engaging. Mr. K presents the material in a lecture-style format, but also leads class discussions in which he encourages everyone to share their input on the particular topic being discussed. The class is also very free and relaxed; Mr. K allows students to speak frankly and treats each like his equal. His grading is very fair; if a majority of the students struggled with a certain question/topic, he doesn't deduct points for wrong answers. He is also patient in his explanations and will answer any questions a student poses.

    Course highlights:

    While I learned a great deal about psychology in this class, what I truly learned was how to navigate a college course. I learned proper studying and note-taking techniques. This class helped ease me into how college classes are run and what the expectations of college professors are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, please take your study habits into account. If you aren't willing to take 1-2 hours each night to study the material, do not take this course. Always ask for clarification during class, and compare notes if you can. Sometimes you may miss something, at least until you get used to the lecture-style of the class.
