This class was tough.
This class prepared me extremely well to transfer to a research university because I learned everything you should know about conducting, recording, and publishing research. I highly recommend this class if you are not expecting and easy A and want to know what life will be like conducting research as a psychologist.
In this course, I learned how to do research properly, and I was taught to avoid things that may weaken the reliability of the information retrieved from my experiment. I was taught how to question theories with research and experimentation, and how to present the data to other researchers. What I learned will be extremeley benefitial for my research in the Psychological field.

Advice for students:
Take your time to conduct your experiments, and make sure you are following the methods used to control validity. Experiments are never perfect, so don't expect yours to be perfect. People will always question the results of your experiments, so think ahead of questions people may have reguarding the data you collected, how it was collected, and how it was presented in your journal or article.
