  • Rachelle Swift United Kingdom A very informative yet difficult course, however, I've enjoyed this and will use this in my job. 2014-10-21 16:10:32
  • Mandy Cockrell United States of America This course scratches the surface of the most basic topics in Psychology in about an hour. I took Psychology in a classroom and it took me 16 weeks. Very cut and dry informative course overall. 2014-10-20 17:10:57
  • Carolyne Wanjiku Kenya This has been a very resourceful course. I have gained a lot of knowledge especially in punishment, the patterns of sleep and stress this has turned out to be very important to the society I live in. I will use this knowledge to educate fellow women like me who are mostly being affected by stress. 2014-10-13 17:10:56
  • RUSSELL BROWN United States of America Good course A little more information on stress responses would have been nice. 2014-10-13 04:10:12
  • Laura Fox United Kingdom Very thorough. Great knowledge into the Biology and Behaviour involved in Psychology. 2014-10-03 15:10:38
  • Melanie Stroud United States of America As a researcher and student in psychology, I believe that there is an explanation for every behavior exhibited in every human and animal. I'm also a writer by profession, so I've combined my love of writing and psychology in hopes of bringing a better understanding to the fascinating subject of the human mind. 2014-09-25 02:09:26
