Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
This was the first AP course I took, and I think that it was a great class for beginner AP students. Because world history is such a big topic with lots to cover, this course actually looks more into broad concepts of world history rather than a lot of nitty gritty details. So, do not be intimidated by the vastness of what the topic may sound like- you might find that this is one of your favorite history courses!
I especially enjoyed this course due to the fact that it goes a step farther than other history courses in regard to learning content. For instance, we look more deeply at primary historical sources to learn instead of just reading out of textbooks. Also, I really enjoyed observing repeating trends and patterns of societies from different places during different times.

Advice for students:
I would advise students to try to connect what they learn in class to news and societal conditions in current times. The ability to draw insightful connections between the material and actual conditions that students may already be familiar with makes a good bridge for content retention.
