This class was tough.
This course is a crash course on everything to do with the brain and how people act and interact. There are many subfields of psychology and PS101 is the introduction to various topics that include the different types of personality, disorders and how to identify them, how to treat psychological disorders and the structure of the brain as well as the different types of psychological schools and fields. It is a course worthwhile if you want to know more about the self and the human mind. It is very science heavy and requires attention to detail but worth it.
This course taught me about consciousness and how dreaming is a state of consciousness even though you are not conscious you are. it is like a mind game but it is really nice to know about consciousness and all the different types of drugs and their effects on the human body. It is a science so there will be a lot of emphasis on the brain.

Advice for students:
Make sure you study and reread all the notes. be prepared for the class and DO THE READINGS!!! Very important to follow up on the readings and make sure you understand them before class and ask questions. the multiple choice questions were very difficult and the answers were so close you need to now what you're talking about to get the right answer.
