Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor uses the book in class. The professor reads from the book and tells you what to underline or highlight. The book becomes your study guide for all exams. He also supplies a list for the final of the topics on the multiple-choice exam, so you know what to review.
This course is a more in-depth version of Learning Theories. The course also helps reinforce information the student should already know. On review information, he will ask questions and give extra points (of various amounts) toward your final grade. You learn about the different types of reinforcement and punishments, and when they work best. He uses lots of examples from his professional life, helping the class understand the difference between when to use one over the other; all are great examples.

Advice for students:
If you want to learn more about applied psychology or how to help people with physical and/or mental disabilities, this would be a foot in the right direction. I would advise you to show up to all classes and participate when you can. If you do these two things, and still struggle to get the grade you are looking for after trying your best and are only a few points away, you may be pleasantly surprised when you see your end grade. Just try your hardest and attend all the class, that alone should help.
