    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fascinating! Learning the basics about how and why people think the way they do is certainly an interesting topic. The class work was relatively simple and nothing was extremely challenging or extremely easy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some basics about psychology that have stuck with me this entire year. I learned key terms, and can now apply these terms outside the classroom. You can't do that with math! The class was generally fun and engaging.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the text book! It's a hard read but you'd be amazed at how much you'll be able to retain once you have. Always do the extra credit chances and non-graded quizzes. A little extra points and some practice never harmed anyone. Tedious, I know, but it'll be worth seeing your grade go from a lower one to an A!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are going into the education field, it is a great class to learn about the minds of children and the different types of disorders that a child could have.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the movie that we watched about a child with a mental disorder. It really interested me and was a good way to introduce the class. I learned about the different types of disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to pay attention, read the chapters, do the homework, and study for the test. If you can do all of that, you will be fine.
