    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because it was awesome. The teacher was great, I took this course online but even through the computer screen she had systems that made me learn what she was teaching without having to sit there and listen to lectures.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course had to be the discussions. This is where you shared your thoughts on subjects with your other classmates. Through discussions you learn more then you already knew because everybody gets something different from each subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice that I would give to students who want to take this course in the future is to really study and understand the material. For the tests you need to really have an understanding over what you learned in each chapter.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Archer is an astounding instructor. He has this way of lecturing that is absolutely memorable.he effectively gets his points across and is always willing to elaborate further if a concept is unclear. In addition, he is always available during office hours. His goal is to teach students the basics of psychology in the simplest and most painless form possible. He never throws any curve balls on the tests. As long as you thoroughly study the review, you are guaranteed an A.

    Course highlights:

    The concepts of classical and operant conditioning are a fundamental chapter heavily discussed in this class that could not have been explained any better. I know I will never forget these basic psychological concepts. He always ties in his own personal experiences, memories, and stories that tie in with concepts, making it more interesting to learn about and difficult to forget.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you participate, do the quizzes, listen during lectures, and study for exams should be an easy A!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Barr is very nice and does a good job of covering material needed to know for exams.

    Course highlights:

    I liked learning about Sigmund Fraud and sleep stages. I learned what psychology is and how it is practiced as well as how experiments are performed on animals as well as humans.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review your notes at least twice a week. Stay on top of readings and stay engaged in activities and lecture PowerPoint slides.
