    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class shows insights of real world scenarios, and why people act the way they do. Jerry Marshall taught this class amazing by providing real life stories and relating topics presented in a manner that made you want to come to class everyday.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the material presented. Each chapter and section covered something different. We learnt everything about sleep patterns to different types of psychology. Overall it was an introductory course filled with a lot of good knowledge to have.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Showing up to class is the biggest piece of advice I would give. With that I would say going over the Power Points presented in class is a good idea. Also asking questions on concepts you don't fully grasp.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Course was very engaging and very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed going to class everyday because the professor made the information enjoyable to learn.

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot about why people think what they think, and why people do what they do. I really enjoyed learning about personality.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The tests are very hard and long, I would highly recommend studying often to pass and get good grades on the tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the hardest classes you may ever take, if you cannot do multiple choice. I love multiple choice however. He, however is an amazing, chill teacher. Catchy phrases such as "Boom chuck-a-luck-a-luck-a boom!" and extra credit all over the place. He'll ask tohers in the class to answer questions that a student may ask, and as long as it's on topic, he gives out extra credit just for answering questions he asks as well. He's a great teacher.

    Course highlights:

    Every test is 100, 1 point multiple choice questions. He uses no whiteboards or lecture slides to teach. To learn, you have to listen. He talks generally slower at the beginning of class, so that you can learn how to abbreviate notes and write them fast. He goes over many of the interesting topics regarding how and why people think the way we do, how that may affect others. Most of the class is memorizing many parts of the brain and what functions or thoughts they make us do and think.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. You will definitely learn how to take notes well, at least in a way that you can abbreviate and understand when you go back and look at them later. It is worth it. He says there are pop quizzes, but if the students keep having questions for him, there never will be a pop quiz. I have used the note-taking skills I learned in that class sub-consciously for years since then.
