Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If a student is majoring in psychology, not only is this class a good foundation for future psychology courses, but it gives a person a glimpse of what to expect as he or she continues to trek through life. The concepts are also easy to understand because they are very easy to relate to.
A major highlight is all of the resources that surround this course. In addition to lectures and book readings, there are blog posts tat are helpful when it comes time for quizzes, and there are discussion and study days that further prepare students for quizzes and exams. I learned about the different thought processes and behaviors of people from age groups ranging from young children to older adults.

Advice for students:
You do not have the option of not coming to class or not buying the textbook. You have to go to the lectures to do well on the quizzes, and you have to have the book to do well on the exams. Read the book before going to lecture. The professor will allude to concepts in the book, but she will not go into much detail. Write what the professor say as opposed to what is on her powerpoint. Her powerpoint will not make a lot of sense because they will be words without a lot of context behind them.
