    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor explains the material very well which is great because it is an intro class; doesn't focus heavily on experimental studies but more on concepts; there are not a lot of readings but they are very helpful as they are a review of the class lectures; the professor is approchable and is happy to answer questions and clear up any confusion

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the mechanisms of the human mind as we perform tasks such as reading, speaking, paying attention, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and take sufficient notes; read the readings as they are a good review of the class lectures and contain information not covered in class that will be on the exams; if you have any questions go to office hours or ask the professor after class

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The content is incredibly intriguing, and Professor Willingham is an engaging lecturer. Overall, the content is difficult, however attending lecture and completing reading assignments will ensure an understanding of the curriculum.

    Course highlights:

    The major highlight of this course was definitely the professor's lecture style. Though the lecture is fairly large (~130 students), the engaging, conversational nature of the lectures creates a smaller classroom feel that pulls you into the content rather than being constantly bored, as in other larger lecture halls.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The exams are not to be taken lightly. You must be willing to complete the readings (only about one every one or two weeks) and attend lectures to be prepared to be tested on the material.
