    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor explains the information presented well. He is very funny and entertaining. Explanation is in depth all at the same time engaging the students into discussion and our full attention.

    Course highlights:

    This course first highlights the experimentation of psychology experiments and how they're meant to make democratic predictions, not concrete facts. Then it goes through the structure of our brain. In this course, you also learn the conscious mind, and the unconscious.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students who are considering this course, I suggest them to pay attention, like you would do any other class, as there is a lot of information given in each slide. Therefore, there are a lot of notes to be written.
