Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I adore this class' high energy and extensive applicable knowledge. Mr. Z is so jovial and is always willing to work with an individual so they may become successful in his class and life. He is a wealth of information and makes the class difficult enough to develop good habits for college/critical thinking but not overwhelming. And the material itself is the most interesting I've ever heard. For those who complain about classes not being "helpful in the real world" this is just the course for you. I can't say enough good things about it.
It would be impossible for me to say all I have learned in this course, and I haven't even finished yet. I learned about everything from the parts of the brain and transduction (how sensory information is processed) to the processes of acquiring language. The material is interesting for anyone curious about life or considering joining the field of education. The whole class seemed to be a highlight but I really enjoyed making food to symbolize parts of the brain and hearing about all of the things psychology relates to in real life. (Dreaming was especially fascinating)

Advice for students:
To succeed you have to stay on track of your reading. For many people this was the most reading they've ever had to do for a class and basically, to stay on track you have to be ahead; especially if you do sports, extracurricular activities, and enjoy sleep. It is a pretty rigorous pace. I would recommend starting vocab cards from the start of the year so you'll have a whole collection ready for the exam; this class has many, many terms.
