This class was tough.
Worst class of my life and I'm a stellar student! Did well in it but had to study day and night and I mean 6- 8 hours daily! Too much work for 8 weeks and very complex. Instructions on assignments are terrible, vague, somewhat unrelated to the book, and sometimes missing information. The department and advisors don't care to fix the issues.
The book was good but sometimes not entirely related to the assignment questions. We practice certain things from the book over and over and then they ask you questions about things you didn't get to practice at all. Had to search the internet for help. YouTube helped a lot.

Advice for students:
DO NOT take this class at APUS. Take it somewhere else if you have to. In fact if the program you are interested in requires this class, seriously consider going to another school for your degree. If you work or have a family you will probably fail or pass with a terrible grade and that will ruin your GPA. It could potentially ruin your chances of getting into graduate school.
