    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course as it has a lot of interesting information and Mr. Rush pushes you to learn more. The more you learn, the more you want to keep learning. Mr. Rush will always give you extra information and packets to review for tests and quizzes, and always give you the free-response questions ahead of time so that you can prepare for unit tests. Mr. Rush does treat the class like a college-level class, so most of the information will be studied outside of class, while he just goes over it to make you fully understand it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to comprehend a lot of information at once and learn how to manage my time properly through the given homework and note-taking. I also learned to make use of my time and study whilst taking notes and learning my information before class so that I am prepared for the smaller tidbit notes during class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of homework (mainly note-taking) that can take up most of your time, so I would recommend starting to study the Myer's Psychology for AP (2nd edition) book earlier on, such as during the summer, to be on your game early on for the final exam and the AP test. I would also start reviewing the free-response questions that he gives out the day he gives them out so that you can answer them on your own time and study them for the exams (defining vocab, making connections, etc). I would also recommend going to review sessions when he holds any, whether for the midterm or final, because he'll give you review packets earlier on than he will for the rest of the class. If you have friends in the class, opt to make a study group that meets once a week or when everyone is available, and share information in case someone is behind or struggling to fully comprehend the information in class. That way, you all achieve together. If anyone does have trouble finding the book, you can always try looking for PDFs for it or email [email protected] (me) for a free PDF of the book to study during the summer and get ahead on homework. Overall, if you do plan to take this course, good luck! And keep studying!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me endless things about human psychology and the brain. Though it might have been a lot of tedious work, it really helped me comprehend what we were learning in class, which made it more enjoyable. However, along with the homework, we had mini projects and movie assignments that were fun.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, you would read the AP Psychology textbook, which involves anywhere from basic information about psychology, to thorough details about the different areas of the brain and what their job is.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some very helpful advice I would give students about this course is to really thoroughly and openly read the textbook. No matter what, study hard through reading the textbook and make sure to do the notes/homework because it will help you indirectly study, instead of last minute cramming before a test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course provides a challenge to anyone who isn't used to consistent work ethic. It prepares you to start making a schedule for assignments due, and too actually read the textbook given to you because it's the only way to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Having an awesome teacher was a huge advantage, and I learned organization skills to organize all my notes taken in class, and to pay more attention to lectures. Also, write down only the important things in the lectures and how to identify those.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, stay organized and pay attention. Vocabulary is very important as well. Take all tests and quizzes previously and use them to study for the AP exam. The class will be very simple if these requirements are met.
