This class was tough.
I would recommend this course to those who enjoy history and can manage their time well because this course requires a lot of work and a need for one to make sure they have enough time to complete homework for this course and all the other courses they have. If one can do that, then they must be up to the challenge of a rigorous AP course and the AP exam at the end of the year. One must also expect summer assignments as well as winter break homework. Overall, the course was extremely interesting, and although the course was extremely challenging, the knowledge received outweighs the difficulty of the course.
Some highlights of the course were the creation of extremely thick notebooks, filled in fully with notes (we joked about those notebooks being our "Holy Bibles"), TBT quizzes (Throw-Back Thursday quizzes), and overall just the knowledge of the history of the world. There is so much about the world (in culture, religion, lifestyle, etc.) that people are not aware of, and I believe it is important to be conscious of the differences and similarities of people in various places in the world.

Advice for students:
The advice I would give to students considering this course is to not slack off. I know that for all classes, one should not procrastinate and cram and be lazy; however, this class covers so much information that if one does slack off, they will fall behind so quickly and it will be nearly impossible for them to pass the course. I recommend students to manage their time wisely and put a lot of their effort in studying up both newly-received information and things they learned in the past, for the final exams for the course and the AP exam cover all the information taught throughout the entire year. Therefore, students should absolutely not slack off!
