Comment :
This course has a lot of reading, since it is DE. Be prepared to devote a lot of time to reading the textbook and reviewing it, since the only time you are tested on the material is during the final (100 m/c), which is a bit ridiculous. The other assignments weren't terrible, but they didn't really test your mastery of the material you're supposed to be learning. Overall, fairly interesting, but a lot of work.

Amazing course especially for those interested in clinical psychology. Loved the textbook and I will be keeping it for future reference. Lots of interesting content about mental illness and things of that nature. Great Distance Ed course.

Very interesting, but alot of reading! The first discussion was on the DSM, which was an easy 100%. The learning log was kinda vague, and due during reading week which kinda sucked. The group project took ALOT of time, but was worth it in the end. Very interesting group project as it's a case study, so your given a person's life story and get to ask questions about it. It was fun pretending to be a clinician :).The final was very fair, 100 m/c. A very good DE class, but you have to devote a fair amount of time to it.
