    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an extremely fun, insightful and just rewarding class. I learned so much about not only our past, but even our present history and government. It helped me think more critically and even be able to predict things or expect an outcome based on past trends. It's a fulfilling class, very doable, and I highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I became a better thinker, reader, and writer from this course. The reading was not too tough, but it was consistent, and I am glad for that because it also translated into other subjects like English. You'll learn about obviously the history of the United States, but also go deeper and learn and question why and how everything occurred as it did. I loved learning about things that you wouldn't hear otherwise, like that George Washington chose the location of the White House, and did so to increase his property value. Small and quirky things like these, and the big picture of the class, make you a more informed and well-rounded member of society, which I appreciate so much about the class. I loved that every assignment had a purpose, and helped us learn; there were also no major projects or papers, making more time to simply learn the subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As with all classes, do not be intimidated to ask questions. I found that relating things we learned to current or other events that I was aware of really helped me retain the information. Make sure to have fun with the class, because it is unlike any other (including World History). If you look at APUSH like any other subject, with just busy, meaningless work, which isn't the case, you aren't going to do well or have fun.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is overall just a great person who isn't stiff at all. He also has his knowledge and facts down for U.S. History and he doesn't miss a thing. Everything we covered, I remembered him lecturing in class. Nothing is irrelevant or filler. His course was easy to follow and explained each time periods very well.

    Course highlights:

    Probably the best part of his class was after the AP test, when everyone was relaxed and cozy and we were assigned specific projects which were for fun. U.S. History was generally interesting and boring at the same time so there wasn't any highlights except some group projects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook at least once and pay attention in class, don't screw around during the lectures.
