    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was interesting and forces you to evaluate the full breadth of history that led to one moment in time and how that history determined the moment it affected. You have to think so broadly about each particular event while also being able to isolate the event to understand short-term, long-term, social psychology and all the other factors that determined that that moment would play out as it did.

    Course highlights:

    Most AP teachers at the high school level are enthusiastic and truly care about what their students will take away from their courses when they leave and Mr. Nelson did a great job of living up to that as he preached thoughtful reflection on how everything would tie together and how we can see a lot of the same historical trends at work today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need an open mind and an ability to step back. A great memory is crucial and if you can put all the events of history in your head you'll start finding synthesis left and right. Make sure to constantly ask why? and don't think of anything in isolation because the world history is anything but distinct.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much from Mr. Nelson's AP World class. It is difficult, but the payoff is so worth it. My study habits improved, my test scores improved, and my overall knowledge increased tremendously. Plus I passed the AP exam so that was a win.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about what an AP course requires in terms of effort and amount of work. I also learned so much about history in general, as suggested by the fact it is a history course. It was difficult, but I learned what I needed to do to improve myself as a student.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that every study guide that you turn in is thorough, because they will be your best tools for testing and reviewing for the AP Exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because it teaches you how to manage your time and make you realize just how hard college is going to be.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is that it made me a better writer and a better test taker. The course helps with your ability to analyze documents and images, and now that I am taking AP Language Composition I really appreciate everything that I learned last year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to any student considering the course is to get serious and be ready to study. As long as you do all of your assignments and study for the quizzes and tests, you should be fine. The hardest part about the course was the AP Exam at the end of the year, but as long as you prepare yourself for it, you'll be fine.
