    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course developed my interest in history that I maintain to this day. In fact, after taking AP European History under Mr. Sylak, I feel prepared to begin college-level studies of history - specifically art history - that I would never have considered until I took this course. Enrolling in this class was among the best educational decisions I have ever made, and it is because of this class that I wish to study art history in college.

    Course highlights:

    During this class, we learned about the development of the modern world and the roots of our culture, the cultures of Europe, and cultures affected by Europeans around the world. In doing so, we covered the series of events that led to the global dynamic of today, from imperialism in America to colonization in Africa to the First World War and all of their impacts on city development, technology, and travel, just to name a few topics this course covers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the People and Terms. Many people simply look this information up online, but if you wish to get a 5 on the AP Test, you have to find the information in the book, read the sections, and cover as much information as possible in your notes. Do not look definitions up online, and do not write the minimum on your People and Terms. Write down as much information as you come across on that topic in the book, and if there is not enough information, ask Mr. Sylak for help or do research yourself from reliable sources. I recommend Encyclopedia Brittanica.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Sylak keeps the subject material very entertaining and does a fantastic job of covering such a large amount of information in such a short time frame. I will admit, the information is dull at times and the class requires a lot of effort, but it's all worth it for the college credits.

    Course highlights:

    The college credits are absolutely worth it because it can easily cover an entire prerequisite. Sylak keeps the class incredibly interesting with his own commentary and more than occasional tangents. BE prepared however to take the entire day off from school the day before the test to study. Get together with a small group of friends and do a crash course the day before. There is a lot of information covered, and it's the only way to remember it all before the test.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an all day crash course study session the day before the AP Exam. It will easily make sure you get at least a 4. Get the Crash Course Study book at the beginning of the year and use it through out the entire year as a study resource, it will seriously help. Be THANKFUL for Sylak's tangents, they'll prevent you from becoming overwhelmed by the seer amount of information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows a more comprehensive educational approach to the History of European affairs.

    I learned the history in between the commonly known events such as; World War I & World War II.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to put a lot of effort into studying and rehearsing the history within this course.
