    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class to anyone still enrolled in a high school because of the intensity of the class overall. The instructor was strict on an extreme level, and did NOT make the course easy for anyone. Many of my fellow classmates at the beginning of the term dropped out of the class due to stress and frustration. I was one of the four who decided not to quit, but rather continue and finish the course. Overall, the course was very difficult, but worthwhile in the end when I passed the class.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight of the course in its entirety, was actually meeting my professor face to face on rare occasions. Because the class was done via a live video chat room, I really didn't get the opportunity to see my instructor except on a few occasions. She was actually very kind, and wasn't nearly as harsh as I made her out to be in my mind. Another highlight of the course was actually learning how to write on a more collegiate level. I can now write a more sophisticated, and scholarly essay than ever before, thanks to my professor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a hard course, no doubt, but remember to constantly study lecture notes referring to aspects necessary for the essay being assigned. Overall, if you put forth extra effort, you will get extra in return. Good luck!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was first introduced to me at my public high school in Branford, Florida. The class was offered as a duel credit class, and we met together Monday through Friday on the average week. This class is not recommended for other high school students trying to get a jump start on their educations. The class was very difficult, and more times than not, went over board with packed due dates for assignments and essays. The instructor simply expected way to much for graduating high school seniors - or even new students to college.

    Course highlights:

    This course-though being extremely difficult- taught me how to write, express my thoughts as a writer, and find who I was as a person through my essays and assignments completed throughout the semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work hard. After making it through the course with a C, I can honestly say it was a rough journey. Many hardships will await you, but remember to stay calm, and keep yourself as stress-free as possible. You can do it.
