    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this couse for multiple reasons, one the professor is caring, understanding and wants here students to succeed. Two the information I learned about child development helps me become a better parent. Three when she has you do your homework on line, it helps you be fully prepared for the test. Finally you get to take part in a project called virtual child were you raise a simulated child.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge on the different memory's people have. I was explained thesymptoms of alzheimersr and what happens to the brian as the sickness progresses. I watched interesting movies about children who were raised in abuse environments and then rescued. After that the child is release to foster parents who showed the child how live and love again.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must make sure you do the homework and it will help you pass the class and tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for anyone expecting to have children one day, not just for students of child development or psychology. It is definitely information you need to know if you are ever even around an infant.

    Course highlights:

    We 'raised' our own virtual child, we got to make life choices for them as a parent would and we had to learn to live with the decisions we may not have agreed with as a parent. It taught me that some situations can not be controlled and you have to learn to live with your child becoming independent and flourishing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study, as interesting as the course is there is a lot of material to remember for the exams.
