Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
This course is definitely not for the faint of heart. As an AP class, it is tough, one of the toughest classes I've ever taken in my 11 years of schooling. I would recommend this class only to those who are academically durable and willing to take on a workload.
History has always been my worst subject, and this class was no exception, so I admittedly kinda hated this class on principle. BUT, I've discovered that the historical thinking skills we're required to learn are not only applicable in the class, but in other classes and in life as well. It would behoove you to learn them. :)

Advice for students:
Time management! Though this is a skill that I kinda pick up from the combination of all my AP classes, I learned it from AP WH especially because otherwise you'll be so bogged down that you can't focus on the important stuff. I'd also recommend learning to pick out exactly what's important in the reading. The textbooks for this course are SO detailed and information-heavy that if you try to learn everything you'll spend years of your life just reading the words over and over again. Have your key concepts on hand, and go through the chapter and figure out what you're supposed to know.
