This class was tough.
It is a fantastic class to take that will help a student develop on both their knowledge of our nation's history and also their skills at test taking, which pays off in the first week of May when students take that APUSH Exam.
What I gained from this course was not only a vast knowledge or dates and events that occurred in our nation's past time but also learned a few of the various ways one can go about learning this material. It is indeed a bunch of terms and battles to remember, but by having a good teacher like I have and seeking what teaching style/tool best fits you is the most beneficial way a student can absorb the general information that will give him/her a leg up on the APUSH test.

Advice for students:
You really need to spend the time working hard and being dedicated to learning the material and making sure that it will stick with you throughout the year for when it comes time to take the AP test. What I do, if it should benefit any of you, is make flashcards on terms from the particular chapter that I am not familiar with, which is actually a very beneficial study tool for students while not just going over events or vocabulary they already know.
