    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because of how interesting and meaningful each topic we cover is. Learning the background and underlying meanings to popular works of literature is so meaningful. It gives you a glance into the author's mind, and it is such a fun A and enjoyable class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to really discern and analyze pieces of literature ranging from poetry to novels.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the books thoroughly and be sure while you are reading to make notes, either in your head or on a separate piece of paper, of all of the different techniques te author uses throughout the piece. This will really help you understand what the whole purpose of the story is.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course did seem threatening to me in the beginning, it actually opened my eyes to the AP world and helped improve my writing and ideas of literature.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlights of this course was the ability to learn more from other students through their writing and opinions of literary merit. I learned how to conduct essays with scholarly resources and accept critical advice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to jump into the AP world. Many students will try to scare you, but only because they thought the course was challenging. I recommend taking notes, talking to your teacher and studying a bit each night.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course, while rather slow and boring at times in addition to being rather easy, adequately prepared me and other students for the AP Language and Composition test, which was its primary purpose. As such, while I did not exactly enjoy the class, I can definitely recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the essay and reading assignments. The essays were assigned in the appropriate AP format, and they taught students how to approach the specific formats as required by the college board. The reading assignments were my personal favorite, because students were generally given a certain amount of choice on which book they read, a choice which was often unavailable in previous classes.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work and turn it in on time. Avoid falling behind on assigned readings. Don't slack off, do the work, and you will pass with at least a B (assuming you are the average AP student).
