Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was my favorite course throughout the year. While you may walk into the class terrified of the very thought of learning about something as complex as the brain, Mr. Smith helps you not only to no longer fear the brains of those around me, but to be intrigued by the power they hold. He puts so much effort into teaching his students about the things that he is passionate about and his obvious love to teach really makes a difference in his students' education, and for that I am grateful to have had the privilege to have him as my teacher.
This class teaches you about the brain, its structure, how it works, why it works, and the things that we can learn about those around us based on their actions or personalities. I most enjoyed the time we spent learning about the different personality disorders and how their symptoms are not solely bad habits that someone can kick, but rather are a part of a serious problem that needs attention and medical help.

Advice for students:
I strongly advise staying on top of the readings when they are assigned. He gives you plenty of notice and time to read the chapters, so do it. It is not worth cramming the night before each test and you will get so much more out of the class if you read and then are able to contribute to the class discussions.
