Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it helps you learn about what has shaped the world. Learning more about all of the wars and discovering some little side wars that happened, really helps you understand more about why the world is the way it is. Another thing that makes US History interesting is the different periods of time, like the 1950's era, and learning about the Little Rock Nine and more about Rosa Parks.
For me, the highlight of this course was learning about the 1950's. I learned about the nine colored kids who basically shaped desegregation. These kids were part of the Little Rock Nine, and they went to Little Rock High, a high school meant for white kids. They put up with the constant bullying, and they weren't afraid of risking their lives, because they knew they were helping shape America. To know what those nine teenagers went through, it makes me thankful for what I have and it makes me thankful that they did what they did because we don't have to live in a segregated world. I also learned more about was Rosa Parks did. I knew a little bit of background from her, but I didn't know that her not moving on the bus created boycotts and also created a group named the Freedom Riders.

Advice for students:
The advice I would give to students is to study for at least 10-15 minutes each night, because it makes the tests just that much easier. This course is not an easy course, but if you do it right, its not a hard course either. The tests are easy if you study, but at the same time if you don't study you most likely will fail the tests. This course is one of the courses where you can't get away with skimming your notes 5 minutes before a test.
