    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides a deeper understanding of the US history, better than one could get just taking a regular history class. Also if you pass the AP test then you get to save money in college as it is one less course that you have to take.

    Course highlights:

    This class taught me how to be a hard worker, and showed me that procrastination is not a good thing. Also it taught me that what we learned in elementary and middle school was only beginning to scrape the top of the barrel and showed that all was not dandy in the creating of what we consider to be the great America today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes, even if the reading is boring look at in depth so that you can understand the test material that comes up. Also look at previous released test questions and try to answer those so that you can prepare yourself for the rigorous tests that take place in this course. Lastly, STUDY. That is the most important thing, even if you think that you know the subject keep testing yourself on it until you know it like the back of your hand, otherwise when it comes to the test you'll blank out.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is a fun and highly interesting class about our country's history. It also taught by one of the best teachers I have ever had in high school which adds onto the already great experience. Fun trips to Washington D.C. and Philadelphia are also a plus.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of new facts about our country's history that I didn't previously know before taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do a lot of work but it is definitely worth the work.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    US History is very important to us so it being an AP course just furthers your knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    This course had a heavy workload but it prepared us for the AP. We learned how to analyze questions to aid us in our essays and in depth multiple choice questions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I'd give for kids considering this course is to study nightly because you'll never know when a pop quiz pops up. Plus I'd recommend the Princeton review book for APUSH it was helpful not only for the AP but the midterm.
