    Study the quizzes for the test. They really do help a lot because some answers remain the same.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Gelam is incredibly warm and inviting. She engages her students in conversation and applies the many different elements of psychology to real life, making them easier to relate to and understand. She is very energetic and understanding which makes the class more of a memorable experience.

    Course highlights:

    Personally, I thought that the highlights of this course were our chapter on social psychology and developmental psychology. I learned about Piaget's developmental stages which I'm sure will come in handy later on in my college career. I also learned about a plethora of theories, fields, and perspectives that influence psychologists today and play a role in research. The most intriguing field was the evolutionary field, which looks at how our ancestors influence our behavior. Much of the information we discussed shocked me. For example, the fear of snakes and spiders, which is most the most common fear among humans, seems to be so deeply etched in us because our ancestors reacted the same way as a defense mechanism.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to study regularly. The course is not very difficult as long as you keep up with the work and do not procrastinate, much like any other course, but if you neglect to do these things, you will struggle,
