    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Taking an Advanced Placement class may seem difficult and time consuming, and that's because it is. You'll spend most evenings working, trying to cement all this history about the presidents, wars, and social issues that'll extend into your weekends. Eventually the book becomes your best friend, and you end up learning so much from it.

    Course highlights:

    This class is no easy A, hell, it isn't even an easy C, but let me tell you, when I say that this class improved my time management, my study habits, and my writing abilities, I am telling the truth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Study. Study. The only way to pass is to study and give the class 110% percent of your time and effort.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking an AP History class because you get to know your ancestors story, some people even find their identify after knowing where they come from. If you're curious about the presidents, any wars, or diplomatic matters this is the class for you. You learn so much in just ten months and leaving that class, especially if you do well, you will feel a feeling of a greater achievement. You'll also go into your government class with a head start and eventually be a more active citizen.

    Course highlights:

    You gain many assets but the biggest one you'll obtain is time management, inside and outside the class. We covered one chapter a week having a test on every Friday. Throughout this week you had better read the chapter and finished book notes, not forgetting about your two hour practices and homework for all your other classes. You have to plan it out, make sure you read and write notes on a certain amount of pages each day. Sometimes you may have to go to the library at lunch to ensure you finish on time. Inside the class you'll have FRQs and essays to write that are timed. Not only do you have to gather information but you have to write a effective essay in lets say 40 minutes. With that said you'll become a better writer coming out of that class as well as a broadened vocabulary. There will be nights where you have to sacrifice your sleep for a grade but it's all worth it in the end.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The reason I did so well in the class was because I read the book cover to cover. You do your own book notes so do them well, ensure you're writing down important history. If there's a date that event was most likely significant or a name then you should write it down, and for what reason and why is she or he important you should ask yourself. You are only cheating yourself when you don't make thorough notes. Also re-read your notes it's all about retaining the information, the more you remember the better you'll do. Make sure you understand the jargon, you may be thinking what does that word mean and that's why you ask your teacher. The AP test is full of words used in your textbooks so if you don't understand their meaning now you won't when it comes time to the test.
