    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class, it was so insiteful into abnormal psych and was great at giving you a broad overview. Make sure you dont wait until the last minute to study because there is a lot of information but a relatively easy A!

    Course highlights:

    Dr.Foote is a weird dude and he makes things entertaining because of it. Learned alot about treatments and how to properly classify abnormal disease

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are easier courses out there if you are just looking for an easy A or an easy Psych course. The material is dense and useless if you arent in the psych/medicine world in my opinion

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very interesting as it covers a wide range of psychological disorders. While the tests are not an easy A due to the wide range of material it covers, Dr. Foote provides a study guide which helps to provide a more focused area to study. Additionally, he offers extra credit opportunities for each exam which helped in understanding the diseases.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed how applicable this course was, and I would especially suggest this course to any pre med/pre health students. The extra credit opportunities were very interesting too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work on the extra credit assignments early and fill out the study guide as you go in class as it will save so much time and will help you gradually study.
