    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course goes in-depth with the study of psychology, which I believe is an extremely important subject to learn. The teacher was very helpful, the course material is simplistically laid out, and there are fun, interesting videos available online for more information and review.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different fields, studies, and perspectives of psychology and how to apply that knowledge to my daily life. The subject matters included social psychology, the studies of personality, and mental disorders- all matters that apply to how normal people function in society. I also learned about the different ideas people had to explain the psychological phenomena they witnessed, including theories by Freud, Jung, and Erikson.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a lot of work and a lot of memorizing terms and taking notes, but if you're thorough about the information you're reading, the course isn't hard. Utilize the Crash Course videos online as much as possible, because they are extremely helpful for studying and understanding material you may have trouble with. Also, take most of your notes in alongside your vocabulary terms rather than separate from them, because it will be easier to link the ideas back to the straightforward definitions you have to write down.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The reason why I would recommend AP Psychology to someone is because the course is very applicable to the real world, it helps you learn more about yourself, and it is really eye-opening.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course was when I read an article about autism because it was the day before Autism Awareness Day and I was planning on making a poster to hang in my school's cafeteria. It was really heartwarming to learn about something that I am so passionate about. Some of the other things I learned in this course include intelligence, historical perspectives, human development, language (i.e. semantics, phonemes, etc.), social psychology, and biological process.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course, I would say one of the best things to do is to read the textbook. It is not enough to just know the vocab, even though this is a really important part of the course as it is very vocab-heavy. The reason for this is because it helps to actually understand the material and what you are learning through lectures, activities, etc., especially if this is a field that you want to go into in the future or take more specialized psychology courses in college. This class is the foundation for all other psychology courses and it is very interesting to learn about yourself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course in highschool but definitely recommend it if you're interested in how the mind works or if you want to learn about all the mental disorders that have been classified in our world toda . Personally, I was never bored in that class because everyday I was learning something new. I was learning about how my own mind works and how my friends' mind works. But learning about disorders was the most interesting part because there are so many stereotypes and misconceptions about different orders that this class clears up.

    Course highlights:

    Oh man, I can't even begin, I don't know where to start! I think one of the key moments was when my teacher implemented this thing called happiness week. I was going through a tough time and happiness week taught me a lot about my mentality and focusing on the positive aspects of life. I may have been going through a rough time but writing down what I was greatful for and writing about the favorite parts of my time actually made me feel better and I learned an important life lesson that I live by: If you can find one thing to smile about, all the problems you're facing are minimal. As I previously said, this disorder section was also one of the most interesting parts just because I always wanted to learn about the disorders in our world and how one can be diagnosed. However, it's important not to fall too deep into that section because then you might start diagnosing yourself and the people around you. There are a certain amount of symptoms for several disorders before someone can even be diagnosed. But I still find it interesting to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's very vocabulary based so I recommend studying the terms carefully. Don't memorize, but try to use word association to better remember the simple definition of some of the words.
