    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I always looked forward to going to class because Mel had such a great bubbly personality! She is eager to teach about her passion and isn't afraid to be herself.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a lot about mental disorders and how they are treated. It gave me insight about myself, for example, why I act the way I do.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    She gives students study guides which give all the things you need to know for her tests. Mel gives quizzes at least once a week, usually on Thursdays, on the things that she has taught throughout the week.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    All the things that you expect from a introduction to psychology class, you get. Things you've heard from t.v. and everyday conversation, such as Pavlov's dogs or the difference between a psychopath and a sociopath, you learn. And every topic goes deep enough to keep you interested but not so deep as to take time from another topic. The tests are difficult, I warn you, but it is not something that cannot be fixed by adequate note-taking and paying attention. There is one group project, but the professor lets you choose how much you want to participate in every part of the project. So you can not present as long as you work with your group and help with the power point, and she will grade according to the paper everyone in the group has to fill out, telling who did what and what grade that person should get.

    Course highlights:

    One of my highlights from the course was watching the presentations at the end of the quarter. They were on different subjects of psychology, such as intelligence, dreaming, or love. There was an interactive part that was required in every presentation, and many of them were funny, with analogies about difficult topics that helped you understand them easier.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Right away, start reading. Don't wait until the second or third week. I took separate book and lecture notes and then slowly put them together in a separate notebook. By the time the test came I had memorized a lot of the material just by rewriting it. It takes time, but it really does work. And be prepared for any of the essay questions, because those can be easy points if you are well prepared.
