    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this course as it was a unique experience that was unprecedented by any other course I have ever encountered in the typical school setting. I entered the class expecting to explore the fundamentals of the brain, however, I left with more knowledge than I had initially expected. AP Psychology left me with a new perspective and completely changed the way I viewed other people. While many of my questions were answered, I was left with more thought-provoking ones inspired by the abstract concepts of the course. AP Psychology makes you think and it makes you question the world around you.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most interesting aspects of the course for me was when I had the opportunity to explore the more abnormal and mysterious part of the human mind. Although mental afflictions are quickly attributed to chemical imbalances and biological anomalies, much of the brain's functioning cannot be measured by science alone. This course raised questions in regards to moral inclinations and cultivation, proving that society has as much of an effect on the mind as our genetic makeup (nature vs. nurture). The course allows students to view incredible cases from an outside perspective, especially in the case of mental disorders and behavior. It was fascinating to learn about the more "taboo" aspect of humanity without bias, and from both a scientific and metaphysical viewpoints. Both the philosopher and the scientist have a niche in AP Psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although I am not familiar with in-school version of this class, I highly recommend using course source materials (i.e. textbooks) as I was able to pass the AP Exam with a satisfactory score simply from educating myself via the textbook with little need of help from the teacher. Vocabulary is extremely important to this class as well, so always keep up with remembering the definitions, in which I highly recommend flash cards. Likewise, a unique aspect of AP Psychology is the prevalence of diagrams, idioms, and acronyms, thus, if a concept seems too length word-wise, go ahead and try to develop your own method of remembering the concept or by studying these assets if you're the type of person who understands visuals more easily than walls of text.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is very sarcastic and makes rude comments over sensitive topics. If you argue with her in any way, she'll hate you for the rest of the year.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the classmates. I personally didn't learn much as Mrs. Roberts would assign heavy packets of vocabulary work to take from our textbooks, but not cover the material in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, and do your homework. I know it seems tough, especially with all of the vocabulary flashcards, but if you don't do it, you'll definitely fail her class.
