Not too easy. Not too difficult.
For me, taking this course was truly an eye opener. I never knew I would be so interested in learning about Europe's history, but surprisingly, I was more interested in it than U.S. History. There is so much knowledge one can gain from learning about another continent and how their history has shaped them to become the nation they are today.
I really enjoyed my teacher's videos and the way she planned her lessons. I fully understood the material I was learning and I still remember most of the history to this day. Since this is a college level course, it is difficult to keep up if you do not follow the reading schedule. My teacher's pop quizzes made sure everyone was on task, so make sure you do your reading every night! I also learned from this course that history can be analyzed in many different perspectives and since there are no eyewitnesses from the 1500s, many contradicting ideas can arise about a particular event. In these cases, it is important to keep all perspectives in mind and be unbiased as possible, only keeping track of the facts. Overall, this course was an eye opener that helped me see another perspective of things!

Advice for students:
Make sure to do your reading every night, and try to stay engaged while doing so. Relating to the content and putting yourself in one's shoes will help you remember the information and keep your focused! Also, do not wait until the last minute to study for the AP exam. I recommend the AP Euro Comprehensive Study Guide by Steven Mercado to review every night.
