Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course for those who are interested on how people think, react and judge certain situations. This course analyzes a range of things on a selection of 13 units. The best portion of this course was the ability to make connections to the present and situations happening day to day that we were once not aware of. The conscious and unconscious is very powerful, the things the brain is capable is extreme which makes Psychology such an interesting course.
The highlights of this course were learning about abnormal psychology. This is the study of disorders from common to least common. I then ventured further into extensive research about the abnormal disorder schizophrenia affecting only 1.1% of the population. Abnormal Psychology also studies the diagnosis of disorders. Some disorders have no cure but are able to use therapy. Another highlight of the course was the final project in which we could choose something we wish to extend in research. I chose attraction. The ability to develop relationships is impeccable. I learned that attraction is defied by three main things, proximity, similarity and physical attractiveness. What really sparked my interest was that unconsciously people chose a mate or friend that has a symmetrical face. In all the highlights of this course was able to find out what you normally wouldn't in any other class while expanding what we know already.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this class, I would suggest taking organized notes everyday in class lectures. These notes will also help you with projects and leading discussion for the next class. The text book that you receive will soon become your best friend so make sure you read the unit and do the short quizzes at the end of each chapter.
