    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course set me up for success in all of my later AP History courses by giving me a foundation of knowledge about the world. Many of the topics I studied in AP world where subjects I ended up studying more in depth in later AP history courses, and I was glad to have something to connect to in the higher level classes. Sure there is plenty of reading but in reality it is not a difficult class if you are willing to put in the time to read!

    Course highlights:

    This was the first time I personally learned about a majority of the material. It was interesting to see the different sides of major historic events and to take a more global approach. Until this point all I had been exposed to was typical US history and it was surprisingly refreshing to learn about Europe and Asia.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Everyone learns differently, so my advice would be to do whatever helps you understand the material. I found the textbook to be dry and hard to read at times, but I used other resources like YouTube to try and retain the information. The Crash Course videos on World History do an awesome job of summarizing each chapter. These will give you a general idea of what the chapters all about and then you can refer to the book for more in depth details. Always be thinking about cause and effect and connections between events, and try to participate in class discussions as these will often provide you with details you may have missed!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Even though history is not my strong suit, I believe anyone can be successful in this course. This course combines all of the little historical events you have learned throughout your educational career into one course. It covers such a wide view of history, which is really what makes it interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked that this course was not based on an American standpoint but took views from all over the world. Because U.S. history is obviously study so much in the U.S., it didn;t touch on the U.S. perspective as much. I loved learning how the world came to be the way it is today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do really detailed notecards because when it comes time for the AP test, these are the most helpful study tool. Also do review on your own because you learn more than 100,000 years of history in 10 months so it can get difficult to keep all the events straight.
