    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Psychology is an obscure subject within a high school. Usually, we're exposed to life sciences or physics, but psychology is something totally different. It's sociology mixed with physiology and so much more.

    Course highlights:

    I just loved learning about the brain and how it works. I especially loved the section where we examined patients who underwent a split-brain procedure. They are able to do amazing things like operating each side of their bodies independently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    While it was very easy and fun for me, I felt that the reason for this was because I was interested in pursuing psychology in college. I think that this course is best suited for those who are GENUINELY interested in this field of study. Don't pick it because you feel that you are low on AP classes and need an easy one.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is so much fun because the teacher is interactive with the students, and the learning is hands on.

    Course highlights:

    One major take away from this course was to experience life the fullest and to not let events stop you from moving on to greater things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always complete the reading and accompanying homework on time! Don't slack off and always study for all tests because they'll pile up and hurt you in the end. If you don't understand something then ask because some terms and ideas won't go away. What helped me understand the material was to look at multiple examples.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class enables you to apply concepts learned in class on a daily basis. In Psychology, no information is irrelevant as it makes interesting topics to discuss in other classes or in essays that deal with human behavior and why we do the things we do.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about why humans do the things they do such as practicing obedience, repeating certain behaviors, and why much of the internal inter workings of the brain makes people have certain disorders and conditions. It digs into neuropsychology and neuroscience which enables students such as myself to be aware of how the brain affects our physical state and behaviors and why we choose to carry out actions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and if there are any fuzzy concepts review the book and/or watch the many provided AP Psychology videos on YouTube. Do not take this course just because--do it because you truly want to learn about human behavior and animal behavior. If you pair this class with Physiology, which I did, the experience as a whole increases two fold due to mirroring concepts (Physio is the human body, Psych is the human mind). These complement each other greatly! Overall, it was truly an informative and substance-rich class. When you do the work and set your mind towards learning, it will show on the exam.
