Pretty easy, overall.
We learned about history, but at a much more complex level. For example, when we learned about Jefferson Davis, we looked at his gravestone. Although this is a strange way of learning, it pushed us to analyze what was written. I also enjoyed learning the different sides of stories. Often we are taught as though history is black and white. Yet more often than not, what we think is often heavily skewed. This course taught me to think in a different way.
I learned a lot about how to write and how to analyze different pieces of material. For the AP test there are a few different short answer questions, so I learned how to write long essays and then how to keep them concise. I also enjoyed watching in depth movies about subjects I normally wouldn't watch.

Advice for students:
It's important that you understand there is a lot of writing and analyzing involved. This class requires more than just memorizing facts and dates and people. The questions given require you to connect what you memorized to a larger scale. The idea of umbrella concepts are highly apparent here.
