    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend as long as students are dedicated to studying. The majority of the class is remembering pioneering psychologists and disorders so it can be hard to distinguish all of the information so studying intently will help tremendously.

    Course highlights:

    I personally liked this class because it prepared me for how demanding a college course will be. I also plan on minoring in psychology for college, so getting AP credit was my goal. I would only recommend it to people with the same motivation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing outlines for each chapter helped me a lot because it streamlined information in the textbook and helped me narrow down what I believed would be test material. It also helped me remember information when I was formulating the outlines, because it is proven to help retain information by writing things down rather than just reading them.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course because not only are the information that is covered really interesting , but you'll find that the information covered is really visible in real life with real people . It also allows your brain to expand and explore other ways of thinking/observing different people.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course definitely had to be the lesson about "Conformity" because I thought that was only me , but apparently I am not the only one who conforms to the social norm on accident. I also liked the concept of the "Mil-grim experiments" . My favorite things to learn in AP psych was reading about real life people pretty much going crazy and the ending results or the cause of the behavior.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Well , you would first need to get yourself a green "Barron" book . Trust me you're gonna need it. Had I listened before instead of procrastinating like "Oh well its only the first week of school... only the second week ... only the first two months of school we will not really be needing this " , maybe I would not have had a hard time with the tests. Another thing , actually read every textbook page they tell you to read and do not slack off. You miss a day of reading , then you're gonna want to miss a couple weeks , it's really easy to slip up. You also want to keep those flashcards you make , you'll need them for the big exam at the end . Finally , just keep an open mind , like yeah this class is kind of tough , and the terminology is kind of confusing but if you keep an open mind about it , you will be fine I promise!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a fascinating course with a lively written textbook. The biggest draw to this class is that you'll use everything you learn.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me was the personality section and understanding that one size does not fit all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to study for Hines' tests. They're upwards of 60 questions and harder than the AP exam in my experience.
