    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very interesting class. My attention was kept throughout the entire semester. The class is also set up in a way that makes it incredibly easy to learn the content.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the fact that you got to learn the content through "Crash Course" videos. I learned a wide range of information from this class starting with the parts of the brain all the way to the stages of dreaming.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Instead of just reading the transcript of the videos, watch them too. They keep you interested and help you to remember the content much easier than just reading it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is very neatly laid out. All the lectures were posted online along with study guides for the quizzes. Taking notes and paying attention is a must, but it isn't difficult as most of the material is interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the later lectures of the course once we were past the basics. The psychology behind sleep and dreams, and sexual psychology were the most interesting me. Learning about the subconscious mind and how that effects what we think and feel was fun, not to mention kind of funny.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and listen to the lectures, while also doing your best to try to answer his questions. He would prefer getting the wrong answer than none at all. Study for the quizzes and the tests and they'll be easy to get good grades on.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course if you take an interest in psychology. However, whether you enjoy psychology or not and you have to take PSY-150 I would try to take it with Dr. Pritchard his humor makes class interesting and as long as you do the study guides, it's pretty much the exact same questions he puts on the tests.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most memorable highlights of the class is when he goes over Sigmund Freud and the theories set by him. His take on this subject is very insightful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always print out the study guides the questions are literally the same as the ones on the test. You have two or three writing assignments they are fairly easy as long as you use the amount of time given to turn them in wisely it's not as easy to do the night before.
