Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Pretty easy, overall.
This course is both well-taught and inherently interesting, I actually don't know of anyone who has taken this course and regretted it. The workload is fairly light (most everything is done in class), and both teachers are passionate about the course material, which shows in their lectures. There are a few lessons that can be a bit boring, but they're relatively fast and help you understand the lessons that follow.
This course helped me better understand people's actions, whether they were my own, ones I had observed, or social phenomena we learned of in other classes (especially history classes and child development). We learned about what caused the brain to perform specific functions, and how those functions affected everything from our personalities, to our social interactions, to subconscious decisions we all make in our daily lives.

Advice for students:
I would recommend using lots of flash cards for this course. You'll need to be able to match dozens of terms with their corresponding definitions and psychologists'/scientists' names with their discoveries. While you'll be provided with a textbook, I would only read whatever you're assigned to read from it, it didn't help me much in that class. Instead, pay attention to your teacher. He'll stress information you'll need for exams and make sure you remember it (as long as you're listening).
