    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's good preparation for writing college essays, but AP Literature may be more beneficial, particularly for students who have taken AP Language the prior year, as college writing is "basically a watered down version of APLANG," to quote a teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a cohesive essay (particularly concerning application essays) while emphasizing key details about myself through my writing and channels my ideas in different ways.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to rediscover yourself in a sense because a lot of what you write pulls from personal experience.
