    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is VERY attentive and goes out of his way to help his students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would have to be learning about human behaviors and nature/nurture. I learned so many things from the chemicals in the brain, to the brain's behavior, to the different senses and even more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely be prepared to study! It's not a hard class, just a good amount of studying is required.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend because the class wasn't overly challenging and I id learn quite a bit from it. The professor was overall nice an understanding, there wasn't too much homework and there were bonus oppurtunities. The tests weren't overly difficult either.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to efficiently take notes and retain information for the test. I also learned how to do a project that is to a college professor's standards. I learned about the basics of psychology and was exposed to some early psychologists.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The answers to the modules at the end of each chapter are at the bottom of the box if you want to check your work. Also I would print out his power points and write ff to the side for he examples and extra stuff he says verbally.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was online. For me, it was hard to find everything. I normally like psychology, but I did not like the way this was presented. I didn't like participating in a discussion board or using an online book.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, I learned very little. It was a very generic course, the discussions were mainly opinionated, and the essays were only summaries of articles. The information in this course was not in depth, or any different than other psychology courses I have taken.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to have a lot of spare time to take this course. I had a very hard time fitting it in to my schedule. The reading is very time consuming, but I also found that the best way to tackle it was to simply write the vocabulary word with the page number next to it without reading too intently. The tests are open book, so I just typed in the page number I needed according to my notes. There are only 20 questions per quiz and it is unnecessary to read everything provided.
