Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class is interesting if you enjoy the scientific side of psychology. It goes in depth about how we perceive things and details the parts of the body that is used. If you like science classes then this is a great course for you, if not then I would stick to other psychology classes. Also, you must read the textbook for this course to actually learn something so if like to skim the chapters then you should not take this class.
This course taught me a lot about the different senses and how they work. I enjoyed the vision section and learning about how what we see may not actually be what is there, and why our brain falls susceptible to optical illusions. The main highlight for me was how our brain can be tricked into seeing/hearing/smelling something that may or may not be there and how these senses can be powerful tools for memory.

Advice for students:
Definitely read the textbook as a lot of the questions are pretty specific. Many of the questions on the quizzes are also on the exams so I would recommend studying the answers with the questions on the quizzes when you study for the exam. This class does its exams through a proctoring website so if that is something that you are uncomfortable with or just don't like then don't take this class. Also, through the proctoring website you have to pay $10 per exam (if you take it online).
