    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class can be very difficult to understand especially with it being biology based, but the Professor makes it very easy to understand the terms and he's willing to help anyone who doesn't understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the highlights of the course was learning about the different disorders if the brain.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best study tips I would give for this class is to go to class and takes notes from the powerpoints as well as write down key terms in the chapter from the textbook. Be sure to study as there is only 4 exams that make up the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was informative and compelling. It made you want to read more and was very interesting and challenging.

    Course highlights:

    The intricacies of the human body as well as the mental and physical aspect was informative. The information on afflictions and addictions was a great eye opener.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapter once and then read again the next day. Do not try to do the entire chapter in one sitting. You need time for it to absorb and sink in. Check out some of the subsections and research about some of the items talked about in each chapter. it will make it more interesting, especially when it came to addictions and cures. Researching about the medications and treatments separately was fun.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason I recommend this course is because it is required. It is a difficult class. Basically it combines biology with psychology. It has a lot of detailed information, so study hard. Taking it in the summer was really hard, but I think I got it easy because chapters and assignments were cut out. My recommendation is to take it in the fall or spring and really pay attention to the power points. Good luck! By the way ended up with an A.

    Course highlights:

    This class explores the anatomy of the brain (cortexes, neurons, chemicals, and regions). These parts correlate to disorders, diseases, and functions. You will learn words like ventromedial prefrontal cortex and understand how it correlates to regulation of the amygdala. You will also learn about machines and procedures used in this field of research.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get in a study group! The TA will give a review a day or so before the test. Study singly first and then meet up with a group. Go through the review and share details with each other, so you know as much about the important concepts as possible.
