Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The class was very interesting. It was a lecture format and the professor used many different relatable examples to further explain the concepts. Professor Liao has a great sense of humor and makes the class very captivating! However, the class does move at a fast rate; but, there is not a lot of homework assignments.
One of the more important lessons I learned from this class was to always read the text before the lecture covering that material. It makes studying for the midterm and final exams much easy and less overwhelming when you have knowledge of the text book and where certain information is located. A highlight of the class was the research participation, which seemed rather daunting to me. However, participating in experiments for other researchers was quite fascinating. Especially, since all of the experiments were so different and interesting.

Advice for students:
READ THE TEXT BEFORE CLASS!!! During the beginning of the course I didn't do this and it made the writing assignments take much longer and more difficult. I would also recommend creating your own examples for concepts that make sense to you and forces you to think about how psychological theories and concepts relate to your life, which ultimately helps on the exams.
