    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, but only to students with either scholastic discipline and/or genuine interest in social studies. This course is time-consuming. We covered about 10-12 thousand years in depth in 2 semesters, obviously we couldn't cover it all in class. The outlines take forever, but they are useful if you do them right. We do review in class though, and the information is very interesting. It really is WORLD history - not European history (there's a class for that.) If anything, I would say Asia gets the most attention, though we cover Africa and the Americas pretty frequently, and even Oceania and Australia get some pre-imperialisation coverage.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions in this class were very thought-provoking, and there were several opportunities for debate wherein we were assigned to different groups or empires and argued (with prior research) why our historical group was better/nicer/more powerful than that one. Mr. Nelson's sarcasm was beautiful, the textbook had pretty words and pretty pictures, and the Mongols are always the exception.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make your outlines in-depth. Writing things out is better than bullet points, but to each their own. If you make things funny within your outlines, they're easier to review later. Also - watch Crash Course world history on youtube as a supplement. BOTH courses.
