Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I strongly recommend this class to anyone going to Casa Grande. Mr. Simon is an amazing teacher, and psychology is a just as amazing subject. Mr. Simon carefully explains how and why the human brain causes us to act the way we do. This class more than any other applies to real life. You can use what you learn in the classroom the day you learn it, unlike something like trig where you may never have to use logarithms outside the classroom.
There are many areas that we have covered this year including disorders, personality, sensation, perception, and many more. The most helpful unit for me personally was memory. It taught me many memory tricks known as mnemonics. I learned how to memorize grocery lists, recall phone numbers, and even how to retain information for a test more efficiently.

Advice for students:
The best advice I can give to someone taking this class is to keep up with the reading. If you read the chapter throughout the few weeks before the test, it is much more efficient than trying to cram the whole chapter in the night before. The tests will become very easy if you stay on top of the reading.
