    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it if you are dedicated and don't mind taking 5-8 pages of notes a night. If you are lazy or procrastinate a lot you should probably reconsider taking this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was probably how it helped improved my writing skills, I now know the best way to begin and explain my essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as much as you can try and stay ahead of the schedule so you are not always stressed out and make sure you actually understand the material/notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend it to the students who want to take it. The class is not hard just because of the work load, but also because it teaches you to balance all your activities and still have time for note taking on a daily basis. The teachers grade significantly harder than a PreAP course to prepare you to pass the College Board exam. Great teachers and curriculum but there is definitely strenuous work that has to be done. If you think of yourself as capable but you do not want to hurt your GPA if you fail, take it. You learn way more of the capacity you have and how you can manage. Take the class if you want to take the AP College Board exam.

    Course highlights:

    You learn to balance your daily routine and homework. Managing your time is an important skill you learn besides all the U.S. History.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually read your notes, take your time to understand instead of just writing things down (It saves you time when you study for the tests). Review your notes everyday aside from taking new notes, it also saves you time when studying. APUSH Crash Course helps as a summary of chapters and will help for the AP exam too.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of those courses that focused on teaching you one thing that had nothing to do with the course title. This was a class that taught you how to take notes and budget your time. Yes, you'll learn a few historical facts down the road, but you'll come out a stronger, more experienced note taker. You'll be set for college.

    Course highlights:

    Is it bad to say that the highlight of this course was turning in the Final Exam? Because it was. This class will test everything about you not only as a student but also as a person. It's a true battle, but simply passing the class provides an unbelievable sense of achievement. Don't even get me started on if you get a B or an A! Just know that passing APUSH should deserve its own diploma. It will truly be a highlight.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare to perfect your time management skills, studying methods, and note taking skills. Invest in a daily planner, note pads, a five-subject spiral, at least 4 different colors of highlighters, multi-colored pens, and a strong source of motivation.
