    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course because I know that myself and most of my peers have been miserable in this class. The content hasn't been enjoyable for most of us, and we agree that a lot of class time has been wasted on information that won't be helpful for the AP exam. Additionally, if you aren't planning on pursuing an English or History major, the information learned won't be very helpful in the future (there's a lot of analysis of prose and poetry). If you took AP Lang and passed the exam, you won't gain any additional credit hours at most colleges for passing AP Lit. Some of the books are enjoyable, but having to analyze them so deeply makes them less enjoyable than if you were reading them in a different setting.

    Course highlights:

    We have learned a lot of vocabulary and analyzed a lot of poetry. I also think that taking a class that makes you miserable is a good experience to have before college, because there will be classes there that you hate but have no choice but to take. Some of the books are enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need to get all A's your first semester of senior year to send off to colleges and have struggled with English or History at all in the past, this probably isn't a good choice. If you passed the AP Lang Exam, you probably won't gain any college credits, so you have to do it because you want to learn about poetry and prose.
