    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend for students to enroll in Advanced Placement Psychology because it not only allows a person to relate social communication with world interaction but gives us the necessary understanding of why living things, including human beings, perform the way they do. Most importantly, this division can be interconnected with the wide factions of high school and college education, such as History, Sociology, Science, and English. For example, the primary objective of writing document-based question responses under a stressful-like environment where time is managed, which is learned throughout the course, initiates the foundation for flow-like thinking when writing for AP English Language & Composition.

    Course highlights:

    AP Psychology was the highlight of my Junior year in high school in which it taught me the necessary fundamental building blocks on how to study for my exams. The wide range of information necessary to learn for the end of the year AP Exam forced me to experiment various methods of studying in different environments. This acquirement brought me great justice studying for future tests in other classes. An additional wow factor but challenge of the course, was being able to relate natural studied phenomenons to my or others experiences. All in all, one can achieve great knowledge of their own self and being. More critically speaking, I learned the rigorous relationships between cognitive and behavioral approaches within the branches of psychology.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    FOR EVERY STUDENT CONSIDERING TO ENROLL IN AP PSYCHOLOGY, I strongly recommend to purchase the AP BARRON'S PSYCHOLOGY BOOK (latest edition), preferably FOUR months before the beginning of the course. ONCE PURCHASED, I reccomend using paper or digital flashcards to study the vocabulary terms explained, as well as to read the content of the book in order by chapter. Psychology is a very intriguing and interesting subject, so attempt to maintain an open mind about what your reading and relate it to common applications in your life.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me the power of the mind. Understanding how our mind absorbs information is so important to collect useful information and filter out negativity. Learning we have power to shape our perception of the world is a priceless tool.

    Course highlights:

    Study tips to use in other classes. Better understanding of myself. Identifying societies pressures. Knowing how our mind works. Abstract thinking.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You've never done enough studying. Apply all the information you learn to the real world it'll help with memorization and to make the most use of it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is an interesting course that teaches you about how the human mind works and thinks. When learning AP Psychology, you truly begin to understand what the mind is, apart from what you learn about its function and structure in biology. It is interesting to see how social experiments are conducted and how psychologists and researchers have acquired all they know about the human mind throughout history. In addition, AP Psychology allows you to compare and contrast the many perspectives that have formed about the mind, and how each of these perspectives and branches of psychology plays a role in our deeper understanding of the human race.

    Course highlights:

    This course is interactive in the sense that the teacher wants to hear your opinion on different research studies and also interactive in the sense that you get the chance to share your experiences. One of the most important things my AP Psychology teacher told us is that "Psych is life." By taking this course, I was able to learn life's secrets and I feel better equipped to handle difficult situations that I come across. Once you understand that humans think in a very similar way, you will know how to handle yourself in the future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend doing what you need to do in the class and completing the assignments your teachers assigns. Always read ahead; this will be helpful in keeping up with lectures and contributing to discussions. I would recommend buying an AP prep book and reading the relevant chapters instead of reading the long chapters in the textbook; this way, you are both reading ahead for class while studying what you need to know for the AP exam. It would also be a good idea to write notes in you AP prep book.
