    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in how and why humans behave the way we do! This course is extremely interesting and the teacher is captivating and well-versed in the course content.

    Course highlights:

    Because of this course, I've gained an understanding of the rationale behind my behaviors and thought processes. It was really interesting to learn things about myself that I've done forever but never gave much thought. Some highlights of the course was the fun power-points Ms. Woods would show for notes. Unlike most AP classes, the information was really easy to grasp and intriguing to learn about. On top that, Ms. Woods is probably the best psychology teacher in the world! She gives 110% to her lectures and makes sure the content isn't boring. Although the book work can be time-consuming, it's very beneficial to the overall learning process.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to her lectures because she mentions all the topics covered on the tests. Take thorough and neat notes because you'll need them to review/study for the AP exam. READ THE BOOK! It helps digest the information from the notes and reinforces what you've already mastered. Start Ms. Woods' packets as soon as you get them, because it's a hassle to do them at the last minute. Watch psychology crash-course videos on Youtube. They are very helpful and fun! Keep your notebook organized because she grades them and they are weighed heavily.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The main reason I took this course was because it was an AP class, however, I did not expect to use any of the information I learned. Which bewildered me, because after the class I found myself talking about the things I learned in psychology and making it relevant to conversation. While I was in it, I wasn't all that impressed, but now that I'm out of the class, I wish I would have retained a little more information, and paid attention to the facts more.

    Course highlights:

    I did not expect this class to be as interesting as it turned out to be. I hadn't the slightest clue what we'd be learning, perhaps about sociopaths or crazy people, and how humans use psychology to manipulate. But instead we learned about different psychologists and their theories, such as Sigmeund Freud and Erik Erickson. As well as social experiments, such as the Stanford Prison Experiment. We also learned about the science in psychology, such as the neurology of the brain and the endocrine system, which I found most interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that you should study. You don't necessarily need to open the textbook, but definitely study your notes. I didn't do so well during the first term, but I got an A the second term, and I feel like it's because I became more engrossed in the class, and actually put more effort into the process of learning. For the AP exam, I would recommend not buying a load of books because it just adds pressure and makes you more worrisome. I just studied from my notes for about a month, and I got a level 5. So as long as you write good notes, and you study, and actually try to learn, you should do swell.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. I am not a psychology major, and before I took it, I did not think I would ever use the information in my life again, but I use it all the time. I only took it because it was an AP course, but either way I'm glad I did, and I'm positive you will be too.

    Course highlights:

    I hadn't the slightest clue what I would be learning when I took this course. I thought I would learn about psychopaths, and how people use reverse psychology, but it was way more in debt than that. I did struggle a bit through the first term, but in the second term I felt like I was breezing through, and it became more interesting to me everyday. Although the hardest part was said to be the Neuroscience chapter, it actually turned out to be my favorite and some of my best work in that class (probably because I love biology). We learned about the different parts of the brain as well as the endocrine system which effects some of those parts, and vice-versa. Outside of the science part, we learned about the different psychologists and their theories, including Sigmeund Freud and Erik Erickson. Learning about the experiments, such as the Stanford Prison Experiment was also interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say study, a lot. Especially if you're taking this as an AP course. It's a lot of work, and a lot of information to take in, but it is also interesting and can be a bit interactive. I didn't do all that well the first term, but on the second term I got an A, so it gets better. Also, for the AP exam don't buy a load of books and put pressure on yourself. I just reviewed my notes for about a month, and I got a 5 on the exam. So, don't push it, and don't be too worrisome.
