    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love psychology so honestly any class that has to do with it i like but he was a good teacher. Very helpful if you ever have any questions he will take the time to help you.

    Course highlights:

    His stories were the highlight of the course. Learning different abnormalities and conditions made the lectures very interesting. One of my favorite classes so far.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book it is a must because his stories take up a lot of time and sometimes we ran out of time for the slides. He drops the lowest test grade which helps a lot too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the lectures, just because you have the book doesn't mean all the questions on the midterm and final will be from just that, you have to be present.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a classic college course that every college student should take. The professor is the textbook professor. He is very knowledgable, but his lecture style is very basic. He uses a combination of power points and videos. The power point lists the main points of his lectures and the majority of the content comes from his speech. The powerpoint and lecture come directly from the textbook. The videos are supplemental videos that may not necessarily help on tests and exams, but they help cement the concepts and disorders through real life examples. The are positives and negatives to every aspect of this course. The power points are just bullet points of main concepts, but this forces you to read the actual textbook. Students would not and should not be able to go through a semester without reading their textbook. The majority of the content is said in the professor's speech. This may make it harder to take notes, but it forces students to analyze and condense the content and catch the professor's emphasis of certain material. In later years, this ability will prove crucial the student's college experience. Many times, there is a disconnect between the course material and it's application to real life. The videos provided in the course supply this connections to the real world thus making learning fun and easier to understand.

    Course highlights:

    The course material is interesting and the professor is very knowledgable. The course is about abnormal psychology and topics range from common disorders such as depression to rare disorders such as landau-kleffner syndrome. In today's world, these disorders are even more prevalent. For anyone that knows or will come to know family or friends with these disorders, this course can broaden their understanding to the difficulties these individuals face. This course can shed the negative stigma students may have had due to portrayals in the culture or media.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend planning and scheduling your time wisely. If this is not done well, it could make everything exponentially harder. Take notes in lecture. Make sure to analyze and synthesize the information, don't just memorize! Pay attention to any concepts the professor emphasize. Then read more about it in the textbook when you go home. If you have questions, make sure you got office hours and ask in advanced!
