Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
I would absolutely recommend this class. I loved it, however, there were a lot of notes and long lectures...but they were interesting. I love psychology so I always enjoyed going to class. There were only three exams total and they weren't crazy difficult, but you definitely need to pay attention in class and take some time to study. If you do your work and show up to class, it's easy. There was never anything on the exams that he didn't talk about in class. and he hands out outline of all the chapters. He usually gives some extra credit on the exams and that helped me a lot. He is a very nice person and and wonderful teacher. You will learn a lot, and it'll be fun.
If you have taken Intro to Psychology, it is the next step up. There was a lot that was review (for me at least) but more specific details were talked about. He also talked a lot about different psychologists and experiments. The class really is just about how people behave and why and certain things that change a persons behavior. Some of the topics were on feeling responsible, guilt, types of love, views of one-self, changes in behavior based on surroundings, psychology in different cultures. He really covers all the aspects of socializing with others and with one-self.

Advice for students:
Get ready to take notes. I really suggest typing if you have a computer because he talks a lot and doesn't put all too many notes on the overhead. I saw plenty of people using notebooks, but I just suggest a computer because (if you're anything like me) I like to write down everything that gets mentioned in class. I would also say that you should attend every class. Yes there are outlines and the book, but he is very lecture orientated, so for the best grade, you need to attend class. And lastly, he talks a lot, but don't just focus on writing everything down, really do pay attention to him talk, listen to the stories and put down key words or events. Just listening to him talk and really paying attention and being involved helps a lot more than you think (and that's coming from a hardcore visual learner).
