Not too easy. Not too difficult.

Advice for students:
Be very efficient with you time and also be weary of feeling down. It is not bad to ask for help, especially from the teacher. Study in groups because this will help you understand concepts better with people there to guide you.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class is a great introductory course for students who enjoy math and want to further their math skills. The majority of BC was to review for the AP test and most of it was self-taught. However, the teacher is there to answer any questions!
Course highlights:
Always do your homework on the assigned nights. (don't wait til the day before the unit test when it is due). Be very thorough on your tests, all of the little mistakes add up, however, the grading is lenient enough for you to have a bad test here and there.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Even if AB Calc was difficult, you should still take the class even if you didn't do well. Many students who take BC Calc ended up just taking the AB Calc test, which if you do your homework and pay attention in class, Mr. Branson prepares you very well for.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It deeply took away some of my love for math.
Course highlights:
I don't remember there being many positives of taking this class.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure you fully understand every concept of Calculus AB because you need to be able to recall every section of information.
