    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it can teach individuals about the various interesting things that occur within a person's brain. It gives a richer understanding into the human brain and how it operates. For example, if a person is blind, we know that the occipital lobe is damaged. Psychology is life.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of the course included the two learning methods; classical and operant conditioning. Classical conditioning included two stimuli repeatedly paired and involved the salivation of Ivan Pavlov's dogs. Operant conditioning involved an individual's change in behavior by reinforcement; B.F. Skinner and his pigeon.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students taking the course should always study vocabulary. Vocabulary is the most efficient tool to pass the exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's essential that you know about the human brain and how thoughts and behaviors diversify you from other individuals. It provides answers to why you think and act certain ways and distinguishes reality from myths.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course consisted of learning that there's an equal chance of flipping a coin and getting HHHTTT, HTHTHT, or HHHHHH. Originally, I thought that there was a greater chance in getting HTHTHT than getting HHHHHH. Also, the nature-nurture issue is a big debate that can be quite confusing. Nature does not consist of the environment, but your genetic factors that determine your behavior. For example, your brown eyes could be inherited from your mother or your father. On the other hand, nurture consists of the external environment , which also determines your behavior. For example, your culture could cause you to be religiously Christian instead of Catholic. It is easy to retain information in the course and it is helpful if you read the chapters.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's important to focus on vocab words in the course material because it's the primary factor you need to pass the exam. You must not be too confident in yourself till you think you do not need to study for the exam because chances are, you will fail. Gradually study for the exam over time, do not cram the night before the test. Study old material to refresh your memory. If you plan on becoming a Psychologist, Counselor, or Therapist, Psychology is essential.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to other students because it is an informative and interesting course. The teacher is well-versed in the subject and is enthusiastic about the course.

    Course highlights:

    The best things about this course was doing the projects. Not many were assigned, but when they were , they were worth the long hours of hard work. Another aspect of course that I liked was watching the movies based on true stories of people with psychological disorders and how they dealt with and/or overcame them. Everything that was taught had purpose and meaning, and nothing ever felt like a waste of time.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are informed that a test or quiz is coming up soon, begin studying/reviewing your notes immediately. Complete all assignments in a timely manner.
