Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it provides a basic foundation for understanding the systems of psychology you will be discussing in other courses. The introductions give an understand that can be further researched fro support in the future courses. Additionally, the text book provides a great resource for further class assignments which I still use as a reference text.
I learned about historical influences such as Gestalt theory, behaviorism and cognitive psychology movements which influenced the research and movements during the psychology era including how those influences still are relevant to today's psychological practices and research. Foundations of psychoanalysis are introduced as a support to the psychology era, but you do not focus on Freud. That comes later in another course.

Advice for students:
Do not only read the text. Search for peer reviewed journal articles relevant to the course material to expand upon the foundation given in the course. Do not wait until the last minuet to complete the reading as you might need additional time to research. The text book alone is not sufficient to complete the assignments. Make sure that you relate the course materiel in a person way as you will be writing a personal goal paper based on how you can apply certain aspects to person success. Not one of my favorite courses overall, but interesting information needed for future success. Team assignments every week heavy on the power-points.
