    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the ability to succeed without prior knowledge on the subject is viable, and the subject is taught well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights included the projects that we did, because we could interact with others and get input as to how events impacted society in the past and today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, be prepared to write and synthesize an argument, because although you may be asked to write about an event in history, you have to look at many different angles to be able to be successful as an AP U.S. student.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class, because you are very well prepared for the AP Exam when it comes. Throughout the course of the year, you she assigns several essays and writing exercises, so you get accustomed to what the AP Exam will be like.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would have to be the project that we did at the end of the year, because we could basically freely compile a movie or story or PowerPoint or video where we explained any event in history. The fact that there were no guidelines made the project a lot of fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only thing you can do it try to remember not the dates or names of events, but the impact it had on history. A lot of AP U.S. History has to do with the effects that an event had, and being able to synthesize and form an argument about a particular event can make you a very successful student.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class to all students because there are so many interesting topics to learn from. It's a fun way of learning about America's history. As long as you have good study habits and you are attentive you will do very well in this course. It was one of my favorites classes while I was attending high school. I encourage everyone to take this course.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course I was introduced to a lot important points in time throughout history. My favorite subject to learn was the Civil War. One of the reasons why I loved this topic so much is because it involved Abraham Lincoln and he was my favorite president. Everything about him was very interesting and enticing. We also learned about the 1960s and how times were back then. The music, the behavior of people, and the Vietnam War. So if you find the '60s interesting, you will be fascinated by this course. These topics are just a few of many interesting points in time that you will learn. So I urge you to indulge in this course.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    A course like this involves lots of memorization. My way of studying was to use flashcards and quiz myself. I also would reread chapters in the textbook and I would take lots of notes during class. All these ways are very effective. Not to mention paying attention in class as well. If you try any of these study habits you will do great in this course.
