    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for all psychology majors, but I would recommend it to those who are in any kind of major. It is important for everyone to know how to find reliable, accurate sources of information.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was the way in which we wrote our papers. Each week we worked on one section of the paper so it was not too overwhelming. I learned how to properly write a research proposal paper in APA format and how to determine the validity of sources.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took this class online, so it is important to stay organized and on top of due dates. It was also helpful to remove any distractions while working on this course. For example, closing any tabs that have nothing to do with the course such as Facebook or e-mail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class would be wise to take over the summer. Overall, it was not very difficult. Most of what you learn is basic, but I'm sure in the full semester version it gets more complex and in-depth.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write an APA style research paper, and the many types of research studies and manipulations that can be used.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lab. Understand the material. Go to lecture.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class to fill a quantitive science requirement because it sounded pretty straight forward and simpler than other science courses. However, the material is very dry and difficult to grasp. Szeli teaches by concept and told us that is how her tests were structured, however, most of the exam questions were based on the reading material and vocabulary memorization.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would be the lab portion of it because I found it a lot easier to work with the concepts and material through conducting my own study. I learned how to format and write a report for a case study as well as use SPSS software to collect research from a survey.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do take this course, make sure you go to every lecture even though attendance isn't required and study the textbook more than her notes.
