I decided to take the class because it seemed like the obvious thing to do. At my school, it is a course that is known for being an easy A. Everyone who ever took the class gave the teacher, who is infamously easygoing, rave reviews, both on RateMyTeachers.com and in casual hallway conversation. As long as you do your homework and study a little the night before each test, it’ll be one less class to worry about. Not to mention the GPA boost because of it being an AP class.
Now I am three months into the year, and third period psych still never fails to be the highlight of my day at school.
Now, here’s the catch: I easily spend more time on my psychology homework every night than I do any other class. Not only that, but we take a test at least every other week, and I find myself up in my room, hunched over the Psychology textbook for hours studying before each one. I can’t say the same for any other class, including math, my worst subject.
