    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommended this course, because of the information that is shared by the professor. She goes into great detail over each chapter that she assigns. the work is not hard at all. The information that we learn will stick for a long time. Lastly, the professor is amazing.

    Course highlights:

    One of the many highlights of this course were learning the basic knowledge of the ways on which the brain operates. During this course I also learned about different disorders and functions in the brain cause certain disorders. A third highlight of this class was the different types of memory that humans have, and how one type of memory can turn into other types of memories.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If I had to give advice to students who were considering this course, I would say that reading the book is one of the most important factors for this class. If you read the book it lays out what you need to know for class so that you have a better understanding of the discussion taking place. Another piece of advice that I would give is to make study guides for the exams. If you make a study guide you learn the needed information more than just once and you have an easy way to help you learn the material that will be on the exams.
