Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This mixes two popular interests in our modern world, competitive athletics and how the mind works. The textbook is very informative and the professor doesn't only review from it, but teaches his own views and introduces current topics.
This reviews basics from PSY 101 where an athlete can be trained through theories like operant learning. Also, it tackles the current issues in sports like Ray Rice's domestic violence case and how psychology comes into play. Sports and non-sports enthusiasts will be intrigued for the entire semester. Every student has one short presentation to do on anything sports-related. With a lot of classmates, it's a fun and engaging way to learn.

Advice for students:
Read the book as much as possible, but mainly for the essay questions that the professor gives ahead of the tests. They count for at least 70% of the tests and are the key to passing.
