This class was tough.
I would recomend this course because it really does push yourself to dig deep into research and come up with creative new approaches. The most important thing to do is not procrastinate. The key to doing well in the class is to do a little bit each day. This class was difficult, but it has helped me develop skills that I could use in research with professors on campus and real outside research experience.
The highlights of this class was the opportunity to dig deep in research all semester long and then being able to present your findings with the class. I learned how to balance my time, pay attention to details, how to develop effective surveys, cite sources correctly, format papers, and work in a team environment.

Advice for students:
Be ready to spend a lot of time reading psychology journals and summarize what you've read. This will help you come up with new ideas with your research and provide a credible base to build upon.
