    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because not only is the information interesting, but Professor Frecknall makes the information so fun and interesting to learn about! He is very knowledgeable and he uses real life examples from his job experience to make sure we fully understand the concepts. An awesome course with an even more awesome professor!

    Course highlights:

    This course went over the Basic Concepts in Psychology, including the different disorders someone could have and all of the effects regarding them, how our human brain works and functions, and many different terms to go along with how Basic Psychology works.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and listen to his lectures! He puts his PowerPoints online, but most of the time all of the slides are not used on his tests, only what he specifically mentions in the lecture are found on them. So to save you from reading a bunch of slides, show up to class! He's very interesting and hilarious.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it is an easy going class, an easy A, and Professor Hertz makes the course more interesting. Not only that, the only grades for this course are 3 tests and a final. If you are satisfied with the average of your first 3 tests, you don't have to take the final and if you do take all 4 exams, Professor Hertz drops the lowest grade.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course were the chapters and discussions regarding social psychology. The two experiments that were discussed in-depth were Milgram's Shock Experiment and the Stanford Prison Experiment.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The tests and course are fairly simple if you attend all of the classes. Professor Hertz occasionally provides extra credit and test curves as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class consists of four quizzes and that's it. You do have a few extra credit opportunities though. I liked the class because I liked learning about how people think, the different disorders, and why people do what they do.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about different brain disorders, types of thinking, reasons for different activities, and different behavior patterns.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should make flashcards for the concepts to help in remembering. Reading the book and then reading the powerpoints worked best for me.
