Pretty easy, overall.
I recommend this course because it was fun and I learned a lot. Professor Brinkley was really great. She is friendly and approachable. You learn a lot about basic concepts of psychology but you learn many useful skills that apply to other classes. Overall the class was fairly easy, and I learned many interesting things.
I gained more than just a introductory knowledge of psychology from this class. I learned about writing papers, time management, and how big of a distraction phones are. There were only three writing assignments over the semester, and they were pretty simple and somewhat interesting. Also, there is an extra credit where you sign in your phone all semester and it promotes class participation and focus.

Advice for students:
My advice for those interested in taking this course is to go for it! I think you will really enjoy it. Take good notes in class, they will help you a ton studying for the test. Participate in class discussions. That was one of my favorite things about this class, and Professor Brinkley definitely gives plenty of opportunity for discussion. Go to Professor Brinkley's office hours. She is very nice and easy to talk to.
