    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Tyler doesn't teach it enthusiastically. Any questions asked he would always reply back that he does not know or he is not sure.

    Course highlights:

    I heard this class was very fun and also i suppose to take it for my pre-req but after couple weeks joining, I was not happy to take this professor because his tests are relative hard and lectures slides are not useful at least.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read textbook if you are taking Tyler because his explanation are not useful at all. Don't wait for last minutes to cram everything.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Was looking forward to the course immensely but was let down by the professor. I lost all interest as the semester progressed and felt like I learned very little from lectures since I had to try to keep up with my notes; couldn't really listen to absorb what he was saying, though he was just repeating the slides word for word. Could have been a great class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the DSM-V expanded to make everything in the universe a disorder.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it, but don't take it with Tyler. This class had great potential to be amazing, but not with him. There will be a big paper at the end, so expect that, but not a terrible 200 level course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because if you are a PSYCH major it is necessary to know the basic definitions of psychological disorders. Also, it is just a really interesting class because Dr. Kim-Cohen tried to make it a Lecture/Discussion every class period, so it isn't just absorbing information like a sponge.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course was when Dr. Kim-Cohen opened a Facebook page for the course so that everyone could search for relative articles about Psychology that is happening at this time. For example, we learned about resilience and there was a concept called daisies and dandelions. People that suffer from psychological disorders or even traumatic events can be resilient, but there are two types of people with resilience, daisies and dandelions. People that are typically daisies are not very resilient, emphasizing on the fact that a daisy is very pretty, but can only survive in a certain climate. While people that are typically dandelions are very resilient, again emphasizing on the fact that a dandelion may be ugly, but can survive in what seems any climate even go far as not only growing but thriving from concrete. I posted an article that helped explained this concept easier for people to study from for the third exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook is a must! Dr. Kim-Cohen is very nice and approachable. The lectures are recorded on lecture capture. However, this doesn't mean that you can skip lectures. In Fall 2015, she was experimenting with iclickers and I'm not sure if she still using iclickers or not.
