This class was tough.
Even if you aren't majoring in psychology when you're older, it gives you great insight into how the brain activity works, how the body works, and how the mind works in part with the body and brain. It is an amazing class that I enjoyed because I learned facts that I can now apply to real life. For example, I have learned how to read people better. Psychology gives you a new perspective on life. You look at people differently and you see the world differently.
I loved the in class discussions we would have. We didn't necessarily mean to, but we would all share stories on how we would relate to a certain topic. I shared some mental illnesses I suffered from, and surprisingly so did a lot of other people. It brought the class together as whole. We learned a lot about how the brain controls things like adrenaline or feelings. You learn about how certain chemicals effect the mind. My favorite part was learning how mentally ill people think and act because a lot of my family suffers and I wanted to learn more about certain illnesses.

Advice for students:
If you take this class, study. Always finish your study guide the day of and constantly review. It is all about memorization. Learn to praise the textbook because it is your best friend. You need to review the chapters a hundred times before you can ace that test. It sounds like a lot of work but it is so interesting it doesn't really effect your mindset on things. Also create mnemonic devices because there will be a lot of specific similar terms you will need to remember. I created a song once to remember all the different kinds of neurotransmitters.
