I did not have an appreciation for how much I would learn and truthfully found the whole course to be intellectually stimulating. As I mentioned to others, after taking the course I began to see the world with a new set of lenses, in this case the perspective of behavioral genetics.

Excellent course! At first, I was very reticent about the issue, but this course is really changing my wiew. I have some knowledge of psychology, but I never could imagine behavioural genetics would be so interesting. The quizzes are quite easy, but this is good for me, because I don't have many time, and I can feel I progress. In fact, I have learnt so much! I have downloaded the videos, because I want to watch them again in a future, in the same way you reread a book you have enjoyed. I'm sure that when I watch the lectures in a future I will enjoy them even more than the first time. Love the office hour videos as well.Itr is probably the best MOOC I've taken.
