    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Lauren Merriam is a very thorough but approachable teacher. I felt like I truly understood the content being taught when I left the classroom for the day. In the event that I didn't, or even had other questions regarding the lesson, then she would stay after and answer all everything to the best of her ability. If she didn't know my question's answers, she'd find out and get back to me. Being in her class well prepared me for the AP exam.

    Course highlights:

    Sleep Cycles, Developmental Stages, Psychologist's Theories, Parts of the Brain, Types of Mental Illness. For me, learning about Mental Illness was the one with the most impact. It helped me really to understand some people around me and parts of myself I didn't understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the assignments! Every set of objectives counts towards the end goal, and all the goals on the way there. All tests and assignments have a purpose to help you on the AP exam and just understanding the human brain. I'm in a gap year, and I still use what I learned in this class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Psychology is a very interesting class. You truly learn how the brain works, and the science behind human thought and action. It's incredible to discover that your own memory is not reliable, or that it is possible to commit a crime in your sleep without a single recollection of it when you wake up, and to also understand why these things occur.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course so far for me was learning about the brain. I am really interested in biology, and thus learning how the nervous system works was very exciting. We learned the different categories of the nervous system, how neurons fire, the different neurotransmitters and how each one affects us, as well as the different parts of the brains and what they control. Another engaging topic was memory. I never thought about how the way I learn things affects how I remember them. This

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course is to stay up with all the reading and to watch videos to help further their understanding of the content. My teacher has a notes for us with extra articles and videos that give more examples of the chapter we are learning. I find that if I read, sometimes I don't quite understand what I am reading, and a lot of times the extra information clarifies it for me.
