    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely would recommend Prof. Franklin, she's a great lecturer and it's a very interesting intro course! I wouldn't say it's a hard class, as long as you read the textbook.

    Course highlights:

    The psychology concepts I learned were very interesting. Prof Franklin also tries to make the lecture somewhat interactive at times. We also watched many TedTalk videos at the end of lecture, which were always pretty interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook! Her tests have some questions that are mentioned in the textbook and are not covered in lecture. If you want to do well on the midterms and final, read everything because some of the questions are very specific.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for student who are interested in psychology. She is a great teacher who is always enthusiatic about what she teaches, and she always has interesting videos to share. In this course, you don't need to know who made what theories as much as what the theories are.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of the class was the Ted Talks. They are a great opportunity to get the actual experimenters' perspective on their tests, or a perspective outisde of the class room on a theory. Not only are they great food for thought, but they also prime examples of how these experimenters conducct and use their experiments in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class and pay attention. Honestly, the course is a lot of fun so you'll want to do that anyway, but taking notes in class will make the difference between passing and failing. Also, there are graded clicker questions to see if you did the reading. They are not worth much, but they certainly are a great grade boost if you struggle with the tests.
