    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At first I took this class, because if I could pass the AP exam - I could get college credit. But as the class went on, I was more and more intrigued. I loved it more than I could have imagined. I loved it so much that I changed my career path a little bit to include psychology. In the first few weeks we learned about psychology fields - and engineering psychology was one of them. My 2 loves! I was happy to hear it, and will be pursuing such field in college.

    Course highlights:

    There were so many topics in this class that I don't know where to begin with them all! You start off the year talking about the types of psychology fields, then move into more of the theories and large people in psychology. Then you get into more detail with the brain, each part of the brain and its functions, and how drugs affect your brain and body. Then from there the class is building off of the brain. At the end of the year, after our class' AP exam - we studied cults and serial killers. (Which for me was the best part of the year - but there are several close seconds).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! It is an excellent class, and for most areas of study, you will need a psychology class. So why not take it in high school and pass the AP exam? But even if you are going to take it for the college credit - it's an amazing class and I can almost promise you that you will be intrigued.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! Spencer teaches the subject really well and makes it very entertaining by sneaking jokes and some funny personal stories into her lectures. She makes sure her lectures aren't too long and makes sure that you have some space between each lecture.

    Course highlights:

    One thing I learned was that I can combine Psychology with another love of mine: Engineering! I didn't know that until I took this class. I went into the class a bit skeptical of Psychology, but I soon fell in love! We talked about parts of the brain, what each part does, how it is affected by drugs - to - cults and serial killers (probably my favourite part!). And anything in between!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! Nowadays you are required to take Psychology in college for a wide variety of career paths. Take the AP course in high school (pay attention) and do well on the test. The test isn't hard if you pay attention in class, and if you look at the percentages of what each section of the AP test hold in your score - you'll find it might help you feel better about the test - even if you don't test well, like me.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is really fascinating. It goes over, either briefly or thoroughly, most of the topics that psychology covers. We learned about the brain, how it controls every aspect of thinking and doing. We learned about sleeping, and dreaming. We learned about ways of learning, and how we, as humans, are capable of such a think. Mental disorders, psychologists, therapy, studies and experiments, serial killers. Along with different topics, we were trained on writing about these topics, being able to record our research and findings. We learned how to apply these topics to real situations, and how we can use these topics to better our own lives.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlight, for me, was the abnormal psych unit. This was basically discussing different mental and personality disorders. I find this topic so interesting, because you start to notice things in yourself and people around you. It's applicable to the real world 100%, and if this kind of discussion interests you, then it makes the class worthwhile.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best piece of advice I can give it to MAKE AND USE FLASHCARDS. This is so unbelievable helpful, I can't emphasize it enough. They are an EXCELLENT study tool, its a good way to become familiar with different terms and concepts, and you get a massive stack of knowledge to be proud of at the end of the year.
