    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone who has an interest in Psychology and the human brain, I highly recommend taking this course. You do not need any background knowledge to take this class. Although it is at an AP level, my class had multiple students who had never taken an AP class in their life. Mr. Mollin does an excellent job of preparing daily notes for each student that mimic the daily power point. Because of the college level, this course requires some hefty assignments. If you are not willing to put in the work and study, maintaining a good grade in this class will be impossible.

    Course highlights:

    AP Psychology comes with many different interesting units and topics. In this class, you will learn about the brain and its functions. You will talk about mental illness, how drugs affect the brain, what causes the dreams we have, physical parts of the brain, and more. You will never be bored because every lesson is very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, the biggest advice I can give to you is to constantly review and study what you learned, and do all of your assigned projects. Mr. Mollin does not give small daily projects. He instead gives large projects that must be turned in every couple of weeks. Because of this, it is very easy to procrastinate. If you save everything for the last minute, you will not really be learning the material. You must know the material very well to pass the unit exams, finals, and the big AP test at the end of the year.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires absolutely no background knowledge on Psychology and anyone can take the class. I recommend this course to anyone who is interested in the study of the human mind. If this is not a subject you are interested in, I would not take this course just to take it because it is not a blow off class. This course is at an AP level and requires a lot of hard work and dedication to maintain a good grade. If you pay attention and do the assigned work, getting an A or a B and passing the AP test at the end of the year will not be very difficult. Mr. Mollin makes this possible and is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He does an exceptional job of breaking down the material and relating it to real life examples. The majority of the class is spent in discussion and note taking. Through out the week, flashcards that correspond to the vocabulary of the specific unit being learned at the time must be completed outside of the classroom. You have anywhere from two to six weeks to complete them depending on the length of the unit. By doing five or six flashcards a day, you can complete them with much ease. To conclude, I highly recommend this class to someone who has an interest for Psychology and is willing to put in the work that an AP class carries. This was the class that I looked forward to attend every single day and if I could take it again, I would in a heartbeat.

    Course highlights:

    Because of this course, I gained an outstanding knowledge of how the human mind works and functions. The course covers everything from the history of Psychology to the most interesting material such as mental illness and abnormal behaviors. In this class, you will never be bored or want to fall asleep because everything sparks curiosity. The course started by learning about the physical functions of the brain. This was very interesting because it almost felt like a biology class as well as a Psychology class. Here we explored the physical parts of the brain and how they worked together. We also learned about what would happen if one of these parts stopped functioning. For example, if there is damage to the frontal lobe, aggression may be a symptom. My favorite unit was the unit on States of Consciousness. In this unit, we discussed what occurs in our brain while we sleep, dream, take drugs, or are under hypnosis. Did you know that while we dream our eyes move around to watch our dream? This is called REM which stands for rapid eye movement. During this unit we also discussed deep and eerie topics such as lucid dreaming and sleep paralysis which was very fun to talk about. One other highlight of this course was talking about mental illness. Mental illness was something that I never quite understood until taking this class. We discussed more common mental illness's such as Depression and Anxiety as long as the more rare illness's such as Schizophrenia or Multiple Personality Disorder. Although these were only some of the highlights, we also discussed and learned about many other topics such as genetics, memory, language, etc. I never left this class without wanting to learn more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I would give to students considering this course is to put in the effort and dedication that the course requires in and out of the classroom. In the classroom, rigorous notes are taken daily. It is crucial to pay attention to everything that Mr. Mollin teaches. I recommend writing down everything he says that you are not familiar with. Writing something down gives the brain a much higher chance of remembering it. That is actually something you will learn in the course. Although you should jot a lot of stuff down, do not go overboard. Learn how to take quick notes without writing sentences. This will assure you do not get lost in the learning. I also advise to work on your out of class work every single day. Mr. Mollin will never assign homework that is due the next day. The flashcards he assigns are due at the end of the unit. I saw many students abuse this fact and wait until the last day to do them. Not only will you have no time to absorb the material, it will take you hours and hours to complete all of the cards. Usually there is anywhere from 50 to almost 200 flashcards to complete. Lastly, keep all of your flashcards and notes and review them often. Going back and reviewing what you learned will help you to get a great score on the end of the year AP test. The test will have everything you have learned from day one, so do not throw away your flashcards and notes. Doing all of the above will ensure you a good grade and a passing score on the AP test. Do not procrastinate, pay attention, and do quality work and you will be just fine.

    Do not wait until the last minute to try to complete your note cards or semantic encoding. It is not worth it.
